Let G be a graph of order n. Let K¯ₗ be the graph obtained from Kₗ by removing one edge. In this paper, we propose the following conjecture: Let G be a graph of order n ≥ lk with δ(G) ≥ (n-k+1)(l-3)/(l-2)+k-1. Then G has k vertex-disjoint K¯ₗ. This conjecture is motivated by Hajnal and Szemerédi's [6] famous theorem. In this paper, we verify this conjecture for l=4.

Let G be a 2-connected graph of order n satisfying α(G) = a ≤ κ(G), where α(G) and κ(G) are the independence number and the connectivity of G, respectively, and let r(m,n) denote the Ramsey number. The well-known Chvátal-Erdös Theorem states that G has a hamiltonian cycle. In this paper, we extend this theorem, and prove that G has a 2-factor with a specified number of components if n is sufficiently large. More precisely, we prove that (1) if n ≥ k·r(a+4, a+1), then G has a 2-factor with k components,...
