A survey is given of problems where random graphs and strongly regular graphs appear similar. Several such problems are encountered in extremal graph theory. A class of pseudo-random graphs is introduced which contains both kinds of graphs. Many properties of the pseudo-random graphs are investigated, and some consequences for Ramsey theory are examined.
