# CONDITIONS FOR GRAPHS ON n VERTICES WITH THE SUM OF DEGREES OF ANY TWO NONADJACENT VERTICES EQUAL TO n-2 TO BE A HAMILTONIAN GRAPH

## Keywords:

Connected graph, Hamiltonian graph, Independent set, Regular graph, t-tough graph.

## Abstract

Let G be an undirected simple graph on  $$n \geq 3$$ vertices with the degree sum of any two nonadjacent vertices in G equal to $$n - 2$$.  We determine the condition for G to be a Hamiltonian graph.
