Erdős, Faudree, Pach and Spencer (1988) introduced the problem of searching for large induced bipartite subgraphs in triangle-free graphs. We consider a variant of this problem, where the objective is to find induced bipartite subgraphs with large minimum degree. Specifically, we prove that every triangle-free graph with minimum degree d contains an induced bipartite graph with minimum degree at least c*log(d)/log(log(d)), thus nearly confirming a conjecture of Esperet, Kang and Thomassé.

This is joint work with Matthew Kwan, Benny Sudakov and Tuan Tran.
