Hamiltonian Factors in Hamiltonian Graphs

Authors: Sizhong Zhou, Bingyuan Pu


Let G be a Hamiltonian graph. A factor F of G is called a Hamiltonian factor if F contains a Hamiltonian cycle. In this paper, two sufficient conditions are given, which are two neighborhood conditions for a Hamiltonian graph G to have a Hamiltonian factor.

Keywords: Neighborhood, graph, factor, Hamiltonian factor
