Abstract
The following asymptotic result is proved. For every fixed graph H with h vertices, any
graph G with n vertices and with minimum degree d (H)1
(H) n contains (1  o(1))n/h vertex
disjoint copies of H.

1 Introduction
All graphs considered here are finite, undirected and simple (i.e., have no loops and no parallel
edges). If G is a graph on n vertices and H is a graph on h vertices, we say that G has an Hfactor
if it contains n/h vertex disjoint copies of H. Thus, for example, a K2factor is simply a perfect
matching, whereas a C4factor is a spanning subgraph of G every connected component of which
is a cycle of length 4.
