This ebook has grown out of graduate classes given by way of the writer at Southern Illinois collage, Carbondale, in addition to a chain of seminars added at Curtin college of know-how, Western Australia. The ebook is meant for use either as a textbook on the graduate point and likewise as a qualified reference. the subject of one-factorizations suits into the speculation of combinatorial designs simply up to it does into graph thought. elements and factorizations happen as construction blocks within the idea of designs in a few areas. Our method owes as a lot to layout thought because it does to graph conception. it's anticipated that almost all readers can have a few heritage within the thought of graphs, corresponding to a complicated undergraduate path in Graph conception or utilized Graph thought. notwithstanding, the e-book is self-contained, and the 1st chapters are a thumbnail comic strip of simple graph concept. Many readers will basically skim those chapters, looking at our notational conventions alongside the way in which. (These introductory chapters may perhaps, in truth, permit a few teachers to Ilse the publication for a slightly eccentric creation to graph theory.) bankruptcy three introduces one-factors and one-factorizations. the following chapters define significant software parts: combinatorial arrays and tournaments. those similar parts have supplied the impetus for a great deal of learn of one-factorizations.

It continues to be a stepping stone from which the reader may perhaps embark on one of the interesting examine trails.

7 + 2t vertices which has no The first construction does not give a connected graph when h = 2, so another construction is needed for the case d = 4. Take three copies of Gl (2,1,2), which each have five vertices, two of degree 3 and three of degree 4, and one copy of G 1 (2, 1,2 + t), which has two vertices of degree 3 and 3 + 2t of degree 4. Add two new vertices, :1; and 1/; join one vertex of degree 3 from each of the four graphs to x and the other to y. The result has 22 + 2t vertices, degree 4 and no one-factor.

It is clear that if d is even, say d = 211" and h 2': 3, then [G1(h, 1, h), G1(h, 1, h), G1(h, h - 2, h + t)] is a connected regular graph of degree d on 3d + 4 + 2t vertices which has no one-factor, since the deletion of x results in three odd components. Similarly if d = 2h + 1 then [G2(h, 1, h + 1), G2(h, 1, h + 1), G 2(h, h, h + t + 1)] is a connected regular graph of degree d on 3d one-factor. + 7 + 2t vertices which has no The first construction does not give a connected graph when h = 2, so another construction is needed for the case d = 4.

If a graph has 205 + 1 vertices, of which 2k have degree 2h - 1 and the rest have degree 211" let us call it a 1- (h, k, 05) graph; for our purposes, the essential property of G1(h,k,05) is that it is a 1- (h,k,05) graph. The graph G2(h, k, 05) has 205 + 1 vertices. We construct it by taking a Hamilton cycle decomposition of K2s+1, and taking the union of h of the cycles. Then another cycle is chosen from the factorization; from it are deleted a path with 2k + 1 vertices and 05 - k edges which contain each of the remaining 205 - 2k vertices once each.
