Cycles of claw-free graphs and Catlin's reduction method

In the study of cycles of claw-free graphs,
Ryj\'{a}\u{c}ek developed a very nice closure concept: For a connected claw-free graph $H$, there is a $K_3$-free graph $G$ such that its closure $cl(H)=L(G)$

On the g-extra connectivity of $3$-ary $n$-cube networks

Let $G$ be a connected graph and let $F$ be a set of vertices.
The $g$-extra connectivity of $G$ is the cardinality of a minimum set
$F$ such that $G-F$ is disconnected and each component of $G-F$ has

Some Extremal Graph Results with Degree Sequences

As it is said in the book \Extremal Graph Theory" by Bollobas, in extremal graph theory one is interested in the relations between the various graph variants, such as order, size, connectivity, minimum degree, maximum
