title = "On components of 2-factors in claw-free graphs",

abstract = "For a non-hamiltonian claw-free graph $G$ with order $n$ and minimum degree $\delta$ we show the following. If $\delta=4$, then $G$ has a 2-factor with at most $(5n-14)/18$ components, unless $G$ belongs to a finite class of exceptional graphs. If $\delta \ge 5$, then $G$ has a 2-factor with at most $(n-3)/(\delta -1)$ components. These bounds are sharp in the sense that we can replace nor 5/18 by a smaller quotient nor $\delta -1$ by $\delta$.",
