Abstract: Let N denote the set of natural numbers and let . For S a finite subset of N, let denote the sum of the elements in S. Then . Suppose , where s and t are integers and . We show that can be partitioned into such that , for . Such a partition is called an (s, t)partition of . A graph G having edges is said to be pathperfect if the edge set of G can be partitioned as so that induces a path of length i, for . Suppose p and n are positive integers and r is an even positive integer with and . The existence of an (r/2, p)partition of is used to show the existence of an rregular pathperfect graph G having p vertices and edges.
