All pairs shortest paths in a DAG [closed]

I have studied the Floyd-Warshall and Johnson algorithms. I am trying to understand if the all pairs shortest paths research in a directed graph G can be implemented in a more efficient way if I ...

Topological sort with constraints on the relative difference between the vertex labels

A topological sort of a graph $G(V,E)$ consisting of $n$ vertices assigns a label $L(v_x)$ to a vertex $v_x$ where $L$ is defined as $L:V \rightarrow \{1,\dots,n\}$. Let additional constraints over ...

combinatorical embedding

I have a problem with the following statement : Every combinatorial embedding is equivalent to one with $\lambda(T) = 1$ on a spanning tree of G What does this mean ? OK in a spanning tree there ...

Equivalent embeddings of a graph

I have difficulties finding a good definition of two embeddings of a (planar) graph in the plane being equivalent. Intuitively I mean by equivalent that the embeddings look the same up to ...

Approximability of the genus problem

What is currently known about the approximability of the genus problem? A preliminary search tells me that a constant factor approximation is trivial for sufficiently dense graphs, and an ...

Face-walks in rotation systems for graphs

Given a graph $G$, a rotation system for $G$ is composed of two elements: $\pi = \{\pi_v: v\in V(G)\}$, where $\pi_v$ is a cyclic permutation of the edges incident on $v$. Thus if $e$ is an edge ...

Is the dual of a polyhedral embedding a polyhedral embedding?

A polyhedral embedding of a graph on a surface is an embedding without edge crossings such that all the faces are bounded by simple cycles, and any two faces share a common vertex, share a common ...

Finding a simple dual of a simple graph in some surface

Given a cellular embedding of a graph on a surface (by 'surface' I mean here a sphere with some $n\geq 0$ handles), one can define a dual multigraph by treating the faces of the original graph ...

Does a pair of disjoint homotopic cycles in the dual separate the graph?

Let $G$ be a graph embedded on an orientable compact surface of genus $g$ so that the embedding is cellular. Consider the dual of the graph $G^*$. Let $C_1$ and $C_2$ be disjoint cycles in $G^*$ that ...
