We say that a subgraph F of a graph G is singular if the degrees d G (v) are all equal or all distinct for the vertices v ∈ V (F). The singular Ramsey number Rs(F) is the smallest positive integer n such that, for every m ≥ n, in every edge 2-coloring of K m , at least one of the color classes contains F as a singular subgraph. In a similar flavor, the singular Turán number Ts(n, F) is defined as the maximum number of edges in a graph of order n, which does not contain F as a singular subgraph. In this paper we initiate the study of these extremal problems. We develop methods to estimate Rs(F) and Ts(n, F), present tight asymptotic bounds and exact results.
