A graph is Hamiltonian if it has a cycle that visits every vertex exactly once; such a cycle is called a Hamiltonian cycle. Best possible upper bounds of dicycle covers are obtained in a number of classes of digraphs including strong tournaments, Hamiltonian oriented graphs, Hamiltonian oriented complete bipartite graphs, and families of possibly non-Hamiltonian digraphs obtained from these digraphs via a sequence of 2-sum operations. The problem of determining if a graph is Hamiltonian is well known to be NP-complete. By Lemmas 3 and 6, Theorem 1 follows. In this section, all graphs are assumed to be simple.
