A minimum degree condition for fractional ID-[a,b]-factor-critical graphs

Sizhong Zhou


Let $G$ be a graph of order $n$, and let $a$
and $b$ be two integers with $1\leq a\leq b$. Let $h:
E(G)\rightarrow [0,1]$ be a function. If $a\leq\sum_{e\ni
x}h(e)\leq b$ holds for any $x\in V(G)$, then we call $G[F_h]$ a
fractional $[a,b]$-factor of $G$ with indicator function $h$ where
$F_h=\{e\in E(G): h(e)>0\}$. A graph $G$ is fractional
independent-set-deletable $[a,b]$-factor-critical (in short,
fractional ID-$[a,b]$-factor-critical) if $G-I$ has a fractional
$[a,b]$-factor for every independent set $I$ of $G$. In this
paper, it is proved that if $n\geq\frac{(a+2b)(a+b-2)+1}{b}$ and
$\delta(G)\geq\frac{(a+b)n}{a+2b}$, then $G$ is fractional
ID-$[a,b]$-factor-critical. This result is best possible in some
sense, and it is an extension of Chang and Liu's
previous result.
