# A note on cycle lengths in graphs of chromatic number five and six

@inproceedings{Huo2021ANO, title={A note on cycle lengths in graphs of chromatic number five and six}, author={Qingyi Huo}, year={2021} }

In this note, we prove that every non-complete (k+1)-critical graph contains cycles of all lengths modulo k, where k = 4, 5. Together with a result in [7], this completely gives an affirmative answer to the question of Moore and West on graphs of given chromatic number.

It is shown that c_k(\ell) is proportional to the largest average degree of a $C_{\ell}$-free graph on $k$ vertices, which determines $c_k(ell)$ up to an absolute constant.
