# Rainbow perfect matchings and Hamilton cycles in the random geometric graph.

Given a graph on $n$ vertices and an assignment of colors to the edges, a rainbow Hamilton cycle is a cycle of length $n$ visiting each vertex once and with pairwise different colors on the edges. Rainbow perfect matchings are defined analogously. We claim that if we randomly color the edges of a random geometric graph with sufficiently many colors, then a.a.s. the graph contains a rainbow perfect matching (rainbow Hamilton cycle) if and only if the minimum degree is at least $1$ (respectively, at least $2$). More precisely, consider $n$ points (i.e. vertices) chosen independently and uniformly at random from the unit $d$-dimensional cube for any fixed $d\ge2$. Form a sequence of graphs on these $n$ vertices by adding edges one by one between each possible pair of vertices. Edges are added in increasing order of lengths. Each time a new edge is added, it receives a random color chosen uniformly at random and with repetition from a set of $\lceil Kn\rceil$ colors, where $K=K(d)$ is a sufficiently large fixed constant. Then, a.a.s. the first graph in the sequence with minimum degree at least $1$ must contain a rainbow perfect matching (for even $n$), and the first graph with minimum degree at least $2$ must contain a rainbow Hamilton cycle.
