### Abstract

The threshold dimension of a graph G is the smallest number of threshold graphs needed to cover the edges of G. If t(n) is the greatest threshold dimension of any graph of n vertices, we show that for some constant c, n minus c n log n less than t(n) less than n minus n plus 1 We establish the same bounds for edge-disjoint coverings of graphs by threshold graphs. The results have applications to manipulating systems of simultaneous linear inequalities and to space bounds for synchronization problems.
