Given two graphs G1 and G2, the Ramsey number R(G1;G2) is the smallest integer N such that, for any graph G of order N, either G1 is a subgraph of G, or G2 is a subgraph of the complement of G. Let Cn denote a cycle of order n, Wn a wheel of order n+1 and Sn a star of order n. In this paper, it is shown that R(Wn;C4) = R(Sn+1;C4) for n ≥ 6. Based on this result and Parsons' results on R(Sn+1;C4), we establish the best possible general upper bound for R(Wn;C4) and determine some exact values for R(Wn;C4).
