### 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. ...

### Is there a fast, “partial planarization” algorithm for non-planar graphs?

On "partial planarization" I understand an algorithm, which tries to reach an optimal, or nearly-optimal solution for non-planar graphs. For example, which minimizes the number of the crossing edges (...

### Where is the second face in a graph with 3 nodes?

I understand that to work out the number of faces of a connected planar graph, you use Euler's formula F = A - N + 2, where A is the number of arcs and N is the number of nodes. For a triangle node (...

### Boruvka in planar graphs

On wikipedia it says that boruvka can be implemented in linear time for planar graphs, but I don't know how to prove that.

### How to remove filaments from a planar graph?

I have a planar graph and I'm trying to implement this algorithm (https://geometrictools.com/Documentation/MinimalCycleBasis.pdf Chapter 4, page 3). For the filament F0(V4, V3, V2), that has one ...

### planar 1-in-3 sat described as a planar graph for independent set

Given a planar 1-in-3 sat formula, can someone reduce that formula into a graph that asks the question when ever there is an independent set for it, that's also planar?

### Practical computation time, counting spanning trees and selecting spanning trees uniformly at random

I am doing a project in applied math, which involves counting spanning trees and selecting spanning trees uniformly at random for near-maximal planar graphs with ~430 vertices, as part of a larger ...

### 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?
Let $G=(V,E)$ be a planar graph, only specified by its set of vertices and edges. Suppose $|V|=n$. According to Fary's theorem, there exists a planar embedding of $G$ with straight line segments. Then ...
