Abstract:

It is consistent that for every monotonically increasing function f:\omega\to\omega there is a graph with size and chromatic number \aleph_1 in which every n-chromatic subgraph has at least f(n) elements (n\geq 3). This solves a 250 problem of Erdős. It is also consistent that there is a graph X with {\rm Chr}(X)=|X|=\aleph_1 such that if Y is a graph all whose finite subgraphs occur in X then {\rm Chr}(Y)\leq \aleph_2. - published version (11p)
