# A factorization theorem for a certain class of graphs

## Abstract

In this note we give a necessary and sufficient condition for factorization of graphs satisfying the "odd cycle property". We show that a graph G with the odd cycle property contains a [ki] factor if and only if the sequence [H]+[ki] is graphical for all subgraphs H of the complement of G. A similar theorem is shown to be true for all digraphs. © 1974.
