Exact and approximative algorithms for coloring G(n,p)

This paper investigates the problem of coloring the random graph G(n,p) in polynomial expected time. For the case p <= 1.01/n an algorithm is presented which finds an optimal colouring in linear expected time. For p>=(ln n)^6/n algorithms are derived which approximate the chromatic number within a factor of O(\sqrt{np}). Additionally, in this way algorithms which approximate the independence number are obtained.
