abstract: 
Let
f
denote the maximum size of a family
m
(a,b,c,d)
F
m
element set for which there is no pair of subsets
A,B∈
with
F
A ∩B≥a
,

,
A
∩B≥b
A ∩
, and
B
 ≥c

.
A
∩
B
≥d
By symmetry we can assume
a ≥d
and
b ≥c
. We show that
f
is
m
(a,b,c,d)
Θ(m
if either
a+b1
)
b>c
or
a,b≥1
. We also show that
f
is
m
(0,b,b,0)
Θ(m
and
b
)
f
is
m
(a,0,0,d)
Θ(m
. This can be viewed as a result concerning forbidden
configurations and is further evidence for a conjecture of
Anstee and Sali. Our key tool is a strong stability version
of the Complete Intersection Theorem of Ahlswede and
Khachatrian, which is of independent interest.

The first source gives you the `gzipped' PostScript, the second the plain PostScript and the third the format for the Adobe accrobat reader. Depending on the installation of your web browser, at least one of these should (after some amount of time) pop up a window for you that shows the full article. If this is not the case, you should contact your system administrator to install your browser correctly.
Due to limitations of your local software, the two formats may show up differently on your screen. If eg you use xpdf to visualize pdf, some of the graphics in the file may not come across. On the other hand, pdf has a capacity of giving links to sections, bibliography and external references that will not appear with PostScript.
