Decomposing random graphs into few cycles and edges

Over 50 years ago, Erdős and Gallai conjectured that the edges of every graph on $n$ vertices can be decomposed into $O(n)$ cycles and edges. Among other results, Conlon, Fox and Sudakov recently proved that this holds for the random graph $G(n,p)$ with probability approaching 1. In this talk we present the following, asymptotically tight, result: For most edge probabilities, $G(n,p)$ can be decomposed into a union of $\frac{n}{4}+\frac{np}{2}+o(n)$ cycles and edges whp.

Joint work with Michael Krivelevich and Benny Sudakov.
