Infinite sequence of graphs

http://jgaa.info/accepted/2011/HasheminezhadMcKayReeves2011.15.3.pdf Hello I stumbled upon this paper. On page $4/20$ the figure shows an infinite sequence of $5-$regular, connected planar graphs. ...

Planar graphs of bounded degree: mixing time = cover time?

For many planar graphs of bounded degree (binary tree, lattice, cycle) the (1/4)-mixing time and the cover time are equal, up to log-factors. Is this always the case?

Planar Embedding with Some Nodes Constrained

I've read about basic planar-graph embedding and about embedding a planar graph onto a set of fixed points, but I was wondering how one might constrain the locations of some nodes—perhaps to a set of ...

Planar cover of a rigid and non-planar graph

Let $G$ be a graph which is rigid and non-planar (e.g. $K_{3,3}$). Is it possible that $G$ has a planar cover? Are there any studies on this topic?

FPT: Dominating Set on Planar Graphs (average degree is known)

I'm given an instance of a planar graph and should construct a FPT algorithm for dominating set. The task looks like this: Dominating Set on Planar Graphs Instance: A planar graph G and an integer ...

Partitioning planar graphs without minimizing edge cuts

I am looking for an algorithm that, given an undirected, planar graph $G = (V,E)$ with node weights, meets the following conditions: Creates balanced (within some margin) $k$ partitions of $V$ ...

Partitioning an undirected, unweighted, square planar graph paths that join certain pairs of nodes

I am trying to find a way to efficiently solve a puzzle that I play a lot by turning it into a graph partitioning problem (which is basically is in its actual form). I know that generally, graph ...

Treewidth of k x k square grid graphs

According to some slides I found on google, the treewidth of any $k \times k$ square grid graph $G$ is $tw(G) = k$. I just started researching about treewidth and tree decomposition, and for the most ...

Converting a non-planar graph to planar

Suppose that we have a non-planar graph $G$ which is undirected and connected. Our aim is to remove a set of edges and/or a set of vertices and convert make $G$ planar while keeping the connectedness. ...

Complete set of basic circuits for McLane's Theorem

I was assigned a project in which i had to implement some algorithms concerning graphs. The last one is the one described in the title. I have to make an algorithm that uses McLane's theorem (https://...

Finding one face in planar graph

Given a planar graph (represented using adjacency lists) we want to find a set of vertices which are around one (random) face. We know that the graph contains at least one triangle. How do we find ...

Maximum Weight Planarization of Size $n$ [duplicate]

Problem: Maximum Weight Planarization Given a weighted non-planar graph with $n$ vertices, and $m = \mathcal O\left(n^2\right)$ edges. Find the subgraph with $n$ nodes (but possibly removing edges to ...

A criterion for the planar graph to have unique dual

I get stuck with the following two criteria both about the uniqueness of plane embeddings of a given planar graph. The first one says that a planar graph admits unique plane embedding iff it is a ...

Planar TSP: no node insertion?

Since planar TSP with n nodes is NP-hard, we cannot simply find an optimal solution with n-1 nodes and then insert the remaining node at one of the solution's edges to find the optimal solution of the ...

Upper bound on the number of triangles in a planar graph

For any $n \geq 4$, I was able to prove that every Apollonian network has $3n - 8$ triangles. An Apollonian network is a planar graph defined by recursively subdividing a triangle by three smaller ...

Creating a 2D map of objects given a sparse matrix of pairwise distances

I have a set of points on the two-dimensional plane, but their locations are not given to me. I am given the distance between some pairs of the points. However, I only know these differences for ...

Algorithm to generate all planar graphs

Is there an algorithm which provides a sequence of all simple planar graphs, unique by graph isomorphism? For instance: first all planar graphs with 1 node, then all planar graphs with 2 nodes, etc. ...
