ABSTRACT
Let n â‰¥ 2 be an integer. The complete graph Kn with 1-factor I added has a decomposition into Hamilton cycles if and only if n is even. We show that Kn + I has a decomposition into Hamilton cycles which are symmetric with respect to the 1-factor I added. We also show that the complete bipartite graph Kn,n plus a 1-factor has a symmetric Hamilton decomposition, where n is odd.

For a graph G, let $${\sigma_2(G)=\min\{d(u)+d(v):uv\notin E(G)\}}$$ . We prove that every n-vertex graph G with Ïƒ( G) â‰¥ 4 n/3 âˆ’ 1 contains each 2-regular n-vertex graph. This extends a theorem due to Aigner and Brandt and to Alon and Fisher.

For any given two 2-factors G and H of a complete p-partite graph K( m, p), with m vertices in each partite set, we prove the existence of a 2-factorization of K( m, p), in which one 2-factor is isomorphic to G, another 2-factor is isomorphic to H and the remaining 2-factors are hamilton cycles....

For an integer $$\ell$$ at least three, we prove that every Hamiltonian $$P_\ell$$ -free graph $$G$$ on $$n>\ell$$ vertices has cycles of at least $$\frac{2}{\ell }n-1$$ different lengths. For small values of $$\ell$$ , we can improve the bound as follows. If $$4\le \ell \le 7$$ , then $$G$$...

Assume that n and Î´ are positive integers with 2 â‰¤ Î´ < n. Let h(n, Î´) be the minimum number of edges required to guarantee an n-vertex graph with minimum degree Î´(G) â‰¥ Î´ to be hamiltonian, i.e., any n-vertex graph G with Î´(G) â‰¥ Î´ is hamiltonian if |E(G)|...

For n = 4, the complete n-vertex multidigraph with arc multiplicity ? is proved to have a decomposition into directed paths of arbitrarily prescribed lengths = n-1 and different from n-2, unless n = 5, ? = 1, and all lengths are to be n-1 = 4. For ? = 1, a more general decomposition exists;...

Let F be a certain graph, the graph F-Path denoted by â„™ d+1(F) path of length d with d + 1 vertices (i.e. Every edge of this path is one-to-one corresponding to an isomorphic to the graph F). In the same manner, we define the graph F-Cycle as â„‚d(F) cycle on d vertices. In this...
