Abstract

Assume that n is a positive integer with n >= 2. It is proved that between any two different vertices x and y of Q(n) there exists a path PI(x, y) of length l for any l with h(x, y) <= l <= 2(n) - 1 and 2 vertical bar(l - h(x, y)). We expect such path P-l(x, y) can be further extended by including the vertices not in P-l(x, y) into a hamiltonian path from x to a fixed vertex z or a hamiltonian cycle. In this paper, we prove that for any two vertices x and z from different partite set of n-dimensional hypercube Q(n), for any vertex y is an element of V(Q(n)) - {x, z}, and for any integer I with h(x, y) <= l <= 2(n) - l - h(y, z) and 2 vertical bar(l - h(x, y)), there exists a hamiltonian path R(x, y, z; l) from x to z such that d(R(x,y,z,l))(x, y) = l. Moreover, for any two distinct vertices x and y of Q,, and for any integer I with h(x, y) <= l <= 2(n-1) and 2 vertical bar(l - h(x, y)), there exists a hamiltonian cycle S(x, y; l) such that d(S(X,y;l))(x, y) = l.
