### Is the center of a BFS tree a good approximation of the graphs center?

Given a graph $G=(V,E)$, a center is a vertex $v\in V$ with minimal eccentricity (i.e., $v\in\text{argmin}_v\max_u d(u,v)$). Finding the center of the graph can easily be done using all-pairs-shortest-...

### Proving a property of minimal st-separators that are not minimum st-separators

Let $G$ be an undirected, connected graph, and $s,t$ non-adjacent vertices in $G$. Denote by $k_{st}(G)$ the $st$-connectivity of $G$. That is, $k_{st}(G)$ is the size of any minimum $st$-separator of ...

### Capacitated multiple vehicle routing problem with handovers

I'm looking for literature about a variant of the capacitated vehicle/fleet routing problem (a.k.a. VRP, CVRP, etc.) that takes into account the possibility of handovers between multiple vehicles, i.e....

### Finding k shortest Paths with Eppstein's Algorithm

I'm trying to figure out how the Path Graph $P(G)$ according to Eppstein's Algorithm in this paper works and how I can reconstruct the $k$ shortest paths from $s$ to $t$ with the corresponding heap ...

### Directed acyclic graphs with logarithmic diameter

Fix an ordering $v_1,\ldots, v_n$ of the vertices $V$ of a directed acyclic graph (DAG), so if there is a directed edge from $v_i$ to $v_j$ then $i < j$. Define the diameter of the graph to be the ...

### On cubic planar graphs with face boundaries of length divisible by 4

All graphs considered here are finite, simple and undirected. Let $\mathscr{G}$ denote the class of cubic plane graphs for which all face boundaries are of length divisible by four. The 3-cube $Q_3$ ...

### Summing over weighted paths optimally

Given an edge-weighted directed graph, how do you sum over all weighted paths between A and B while using the smallest number of multiplications? Is there a name for this problem? This comes up in ...
