Abstract : A proper vertex colouring of a graph G is 2-frugal (resp. linear) if the graph induced by the vertices of any two colour classes is of maximum degree 2 (resp. is a forest of paths). A graph G is 2-frugally (resp. linearly) L-colourable if for a given list assignment L : V(G) → N, there exists a 2-frugal (resp. linear) colouring c of G such that c(v) ∈ L(v) for all v ∈ V (G). If G is 2-frugally (resp. linearly) L-list colourable for any list assignment such that |L(v)| ≥ k for all v ∈ V (G), then G is 2-frugally (resp. linearly) k-choosable. In this paper, we improve some bounds on the 2-frugal choosability and linear choosability of graphs with small maximum average degree.
