AbstractWe establish necessary and sufficient conditions for decomposing the complete graph of even order minus a 1-factor into even cycles and the complete graph of odd order into odd cycles. It is conjectured that if the minimum number of odd cycles in a cycle decomposition of an Eulerian graph G with m edges is a and the maximum number of odd cycles in a cycle decomposition is c. the cycle length m divides the number of edges in either K,, that is, 9, nn 1 or Kn - I, that is, 9. B. Alspach and H. Gavlas [l] have shown that for the case when m and n are either both odd or both even, the necessary conditions are also sufficient. In this thesis we extend their results to the case m even, n odd, and m odd, n even. That.

the rst Hamilton cycle until returning to the central vertex. Then move into the next Hamilton cycle in clockwise order and continue in this way until completing the tour. This Euler tour of K n, nodd, has the very nice property that any n 3 or fewer successive edges form a path. Thus, if ‘ n 3, we can chop the tour up into paths of length ‘. Let Ck denote a cycle of length k and let Sk denote a star with k edges. For multigraphs F, G and H, an F, G-decomposition of H is an edge decomposition of H into copies of F and G using at.

Alspach's conjecture, posed by Alspach in 1981, concerns the characterization of disjoint cycle covers of complete graphs with prescribed cycle lengths. With Heather Gavlas Jordon, in 2001, Alspach proved a special case, on the decomposition of complete graphs into cycles. Ck denotes a cycle of length k. Ck −factor is a spanning subgraph H of G such that each component of H is a Ck. Partitioning the edge set of G into Ck −factors is called a Ck −factorization. Cˆ k is a cycle of length k of a m−partite graph having vertices in all the partite sets where k ≥ m. The Oberwolfach Problem asks whether it is possible to decompose the complete graph on 2nl vertices or the complete graph on 2n vertices with a spanning set of independent edges removed into isomorphic factors each comprising a set of cycles whose combined length is 2nl or 2n, respectively. We trace the. graph Kn can be deccmposed into C 's and one K where 3 5 Cr denotes a cycle of length r. This together with the fact that a Steiner triple system is known to exist for n Z 1 or 3 mod 6 e&ablishes -, the exiftence of a pairwise balanced design n; 5,3;1 for any odd d' In Chapter.3 it is shdwn that the necessary condit'ions. In the ten years since the publication of the best-selling first edition, more than 1,000 graph theory papers have been published each year. Reflecting these advances, Handbook of Graph Theory, Second Edition provides comprehensive coverage of the main topics in pure and applied graph theory.
