We consider one–factorizations of complete graphs which possess an automorphism group fixing k ≥ 0 vertices and acting regularly (i.e., sharply transitively) on the others.

We prove that both k and the order of the group are even and the group necessarily contains k − 1 involutions. Constructions for some classes of groups are given. In particular we extend the result of [7]: let G be an abelian group of even order and with k − 1 involutions, a one–factorization of a complete graph admitting G as an automorphism group fixing k vertices and acting regularly on the others can be constructed.

Abstract

We consider one–factorizations of complete graphs which possess an automorphism group fixing k ≥ 0 vertices and acting regularly (i.e., sharply transitively) on the others. Since the cases k = 0 and k = 1 are well known in literature, we study the case k>=2 in some detail. We prove that both k and the order of the group are even and the group necessarily contains k − 1 involutions. Constructions for some classes of groups are given. In particular we extend the result of [7]: let G be an abelian group of even order and with k − 1 involutions, a one–factorization of a complete graph admitting G as an automorphism group fixing k vertices and acting regularly on the others can be constructed.
