In a multiprocessor system, processors are connected based on various types of network topologies. A network topology is usually represented by a graph. Let G be a graph and u, v be any two distinct vertices of G. We say that G is pancyclic if G has a cycle C of every length l(C) satisfying 3 ≤ l(C) ≤ |V(G)|, where |V(G)| denotes the total number of vertices in G. Moreover, G is panpositionably pancyclic from r if for any integer m satisfying r ≤ m ≤ |V(G)| 2 , G has a cycle C containing u and

Let D(LT Q n ) denote the diameter of LT Q n . We show that for n ≥ 4 and for any integer m satisfying D( and n is odd, and (ii) 2m ≤ l(C) ≤ |V(LT Q n )| otherwise. This improves on the recent result that u and v can be positioned with a given distance on C only under the condition that l(C) = |V(LT Q n )|. In parallel and distributed computing, if cycles of different lengths can be embedded, we can adjust the number of simulated processors and increase the flexibility of demand. This paper demonstrates that in LT Q n , the cycle embedding containing any two distinct vertices with a feasible distance is extremely flexible.
