Abstract: Let G be a connected quartic graph of order n with μ as an eigenvalue of multiplicity k. We show that if μ ∉ {−1,0} then k ≤ (2n − 5)/3 when n ≤ 22, and k ≤ (3n − 1)/5 when n ≥ 23. If μ ∈ {−1,0} then k ≤ (2n + 2)/3, with equality if and only if G = K5 (with μ = −1) or G = K4,4 (with μ = 0).
