(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Problem 4.Let k be an integer and let D be a directed graph with the property that

deg+(v) = k = deg-(v) for every v IN V (D). Prove that there exist vertex disjoint directed

cycles C1,...Ck so that SUm of V(Ci) = V (D). (HInt: construct a bipartite graph H from D

so that each vertex in D splits into two vertices in H.)

No idea how to even start...

Def: A transitive tournament is a tournament with no directed cycles. Equivalently, it is

a tournament so that the vertices can be ordered v1; v2,.....vn so that (vi, vj) is an edge

whenever i < j.

Problem 6.Let T be a tournament on n vertices. Prove that T contains a subgraph which is a transitive tournament on log2n + 1 vertices.

I have no idea how to do it, i made a ton of graphs with up to 8 vertices and found subgraphs that work, but can't find any way to prove this.

So confused
