A Neighborhood Condition for Graphs to Have Special [a,b]-Factor


Let G be a graph of order n, and let a and b be integers, such that 1 ≤ a < b. Let H be a subgraph of G with m(≤b) edges, and δ(G) be the minimum degree. We prove that G has a [a,b]-factor containing all edges of H if , , and when a ≤ 2, .
