Abstract: Let $ \Delta \subseteq {[\omega ]^2}$ be an undirected graph on $ \omega$, and let $ u \in [0,\,1]$. Following P. Erdös and A. Hajnal, we write $ (\omega ,\,2,\,u) \Rightarrow \Delta $ to mean: whenever $ {E_1} \subseteq [0,\,1]$ is a measurable set of Lebesgue measure at least $ u$ for every $ I \in {[\omega ]^2}$, then there is some $ t \in [0,\,1]$ such that $ \Delta$ appears in the graph $ {\Gamma _t} = \{ I:\,t \in {E_I}\} $ in the sense that there is a strictly increasing function $ f:\,\omega \to \omega $ such that $ \{ f(i),\,f(j)\} \in {\Gamma _t}$ whenever $ \{ i,\,j\} \in \Delta $. We give an algorithm for determining when $ (\omega ,\,2,\,u) \Rightarrow \Delta $ for finite $ \Delta$, and we show that for infinite $ \Delta ,\,(\omega ,\,2,\,u) \Rightarrow \Delta $ if there is a $ \upsilon < u$ such that $ (\omega ,\,2,\,\upsilon ) \Rightarrow {\Delta ^\prime }$ for every finite $ \Delta^{\prime} \subseteq \Delta $. Our results depend on a new condition, expressed in terms of measures on $ \beta\omega$, sufficient to imply that $ \Delta$ appears in $ \Gamma$ (Theorem 2F), and enable us to identify the extreme points of some convex sets of measures (Theorem 5H).
