"In this paper we consider a variation of the classical Turán-type extremal problems. Let $S$ be an $n$ -term graphical sequence, and $\sigma(S)$ be the sum of the terms in $S$ . Let $H$ be a graph. The problem is to determine the smallest even $l$ such that any $n$ -term graphical sequence $S$ having $\sigma(S)\geq l$ has a realization containing $H$ as a subgraph. Denote this value $l$ by $\sigma(H,n)$ . We show $\sigma(C_{2m+1},n)=m(2n-m-1)+2$ , for $m\geq 3$ , $n\geq 3m$ ; $\sigma(C_{2m+2},n)=m(2n-m-1)+4$ , for $m\geq 3$ , $n\geq 5m-2$ .''
