A 3-connected graph G is essentially 4-connected if, for any 3-cut S ⊆ V (G) of G, at most one component of G− S contains at least two vertices. We prove that every essentially 4-connected maximal planar graph G on n vertices contains a cycle of length at least 2 3 (n+ 4); moreover, this bound is sharp.

Dynamics of Cycles in Polyhedra I: The Isolation Lemma
The first step towards the so far elusive quest of finding a universal induction that captures longest cycles of polyhedral graph classes is taken, with a powerful and very general inductive motor for proving long cycles and computing them and improves the lower bound to match the upper.

Nonhamiltonian 3-Connected Cubic Planar Graphs
It is established that every cyclically 4-connected cubic planar graph of order at most 40 is hamiltonian and this bound is determined to be sharp, and all nonhamiltonian examples of order 42 are presented.

On a Closure Concept in Claw-Free Graphs
A suucient condition for hamiltonicity in claw-free graphs, the equivalence of some conjectures on ham Miltonicity in 2-tough graphs and the Hamiltonicity of 7-connected claw- free graphs are obtained as corollaries.
Longest paths and cycles in K1, 3-free graphs
It is shown that the standard results concerning longest paths and cycles in graphs can be improved for K1,3-free graphs and conditions for the existence of a hamiltonian path and cycle are obtained.
