Abstract: A graph $G=(V,E)$ is called improperly $(d_1, \dots, d_k)$-colorable if the vertex set $V$ can be partitioned into subsets $V_1, \dots, V_k$ such that the graph $G[V_i]$ induced by the vertices of $V_i$ has maximum degree at most $d_i$ for all $1 \leq i \leq k$. In this paper, we mainly study the improper coloring of 1-planar graphs and show that 1-planar graphs with girth at least 7 are (2,0,0,0)-colorable.
