On sharply vertex-transitive 2-factorizations of the complete graph

Abstract

We introduce the concept of a 2-starter in a group G of odd order. We prove that any 2-factorization of the complete graph admitting G as a sharply vertex transitive automorphism group is equivalent to a suitable 2-starter in G. Some classes of 2-starters are studied, with special attention given to those leading to solutions of some Oberwolfach or Hamilton–Waterloo problems.
