### Abstract

Let a, b, k, and m be positive integers such that 1 ≤a < b and 2 k (b + 1 - m)/a. Let G = (V(G), E(G)) be a graph of order |G|. Suppose that |G| > (a + b)(k(a + b - 1) - 1)/b and |N _{G} (x _{1}) ∪ N _{G} (x _{2})... ∪ N _{G} (x_{k} )| ≥ a|G|/(a + b) for every independent set { x _{1}, x _{2}, ..., x _{k}} ⊆ V(G). Then for any subgraph H of G with m edges and δ(G - E(H))≥ a, G has an [a, b]-factor F such that E(H)∩ E(F) = θ. This result is best possible in some sense and it is an extension of the result of Matsuda (Discrete Mathematics 224 (2000) 289-292).
