Extremal problems involving neighborhood unions. (English) Zbl 0659.05058
The authors continue their study of extremal problems for graphs that satisfy the property that \(| N(x)\cup N(y)| \geq s\) for every pair of nonadjacent vertices \(x,y\in V(G)\). [See R. Faudree et al., “Neighborhood unions and Hamiltonian properties in graphs”, J. Comb. Theory., Ser. B (to appear).] In this paper, values of s are found that ensure that the graph contains an s-matching, a 1-factor, a path of a specific length, or a cycle of a particular length.
