Outline Introduction Packing and covering of λK n Packing and covering of λK n,n 2

Introduction 3 K n : the complete graph with n vertices. K m,n : the complete bipartite graph with parts of sizes m and n. If m = n, the complete bipartite graph is referred to as balanced. S k (k-star) : the complete bipartite graph K 1,k. P k (k-path) : a path on k vertices. C k (k-cycle) : a cycle of length k.

4 λ λ λ H : the multigraph obtained from H by replacing each edge e by λ edges each having the same endpoints as e. λ When λ = 1, 1H is simply written as H. A decomposition of H : a set of edge-disjoint subgraphs of H whose union is H. A G-decomposition of H : a decomposition of H in which each subgraph is isomorphic to G. If H has a G-decomposition, we say that H is G- decomposable and write G|H.

6
6 An (F, G)-decomposition of H : a decomposition of H into copies of F and G using at least one of each. If H has an (F, G)-decomposition, we say that H is (F, G)-decomposable and write (F, G)|H.

14
14 When a multigraph H does not admit an (F,G)- decomposition, two natural questions arise : (1)What is the minimum number of edges needed to be removed from the edge set of H so that the resulting graph is (F,G)-decomposable? (2) What is the minimum number of edges needed to be added to the edge set of H so that the resulting graph is (F,G)-decomposable? These questions are respectively called the maximum packing problem and the minimum covering problem of H with F and G.

15
15 Let F, G, and H be multigraphs. For subgraphs L and R of H. − An (F,G)-packing ((F,G)-covering) of H with leave L (padding R) is an (F,G)-decomposition of H − E(L) (H+E(R)). An (F,G)-packing ((F,G)-covering) of H with the largest (smallest) cardinality is a maximum (F,G)-packing (minimum (F,G)-covering) of H, and its cardinality is the (F,G)-packing number ((F,G)-covering number) of H, denoted by p(H;F,G) (c(H;F,G)). An (F,G)-decomposition of H is a maximum (F,G)-packing (minimum (F,G)-covering) with leave (padding) the empty graph.
