text: 'A string graph is the intersection graph of a family of continuous arcs in
the plane. The intersection graph of a family of plane convex sets is a string
graph, but not all string graphs can be obtained in this way. We prove the following
structure theorem conjectured by Janson and Uzzell: The vertex set of almost all
string graphs on n vertices can be partitioned into five cliques such that some
pair of them is not connected by any edge (n→∞). We also show that every graph
with the above property is an intersection graph of plane convex sets. As a corollary,
we obtain that almost all string graphs on n vertices are intersection graphs
of plane convex sets.'
