Recently i studied three theorems which says about Hamiltonian graph, they are as follows,

  1. Dirac's Theorem: Let G be some simple graph of order n >= 3,

for all vertices of the graph G, its degree >= n/2 then we say given simple graph is actually an Hamiltonian graph.

  1. Ore's Theorem: Let G be a simple graph of order n >=3,

sum of degree of any two vertices which are not adjacent >= n then we say given simple graph is an Hamiltonian graph.

  1. Another is a simple graph with (n-1) C 2 edges + 2 edges implies its an Hamiltonian graph.

given this basic definition, my question is will this even work in reverse manner, suppose if i give an hamiltonian graph will all this theorem satisfy? Below is one question i am wondering about!!

enter image description here

thankyou in advance! :)

1 Answer 1


Consider a graph $G$ that is a single cycle of length $\geqslant 5$. Then it should be clear that none of the properties is true, while $G$ is hamiltonian.

  • $\begingroup$ yeah it is trivial! thanks @Nathaniel $\endgroup$
