The minor crossing number of a graph G is defined as the minimum crossing number of all graphs that contain G as a minor. Basic properties of this new invariant are presented. Topological structure of graphs with bounded minor crossing number is determined and a new strong version of a lower bound based on the genus is derived. An inequality of Moreno and Salazar [15] between crossing numbers of a graph and its minors is generalized.
Embedding graphs containing K5subdivisions
 Ars Combinatoria
"... Given a nonplanar graph G with a subdivision of K5 as a subgraph, we can either transform the K5subdivision into a K3,3subdivision if it is possible, or else we obtain a partition of the vertices of G\K5 into equivalence classes. As a result, we can reduce a projective planarity or toroidality al ..."

Given a nonplanar graph G with a subdivision of K5 as a subgraph, we can either transform the K5subdivision into a K3,3subdivision if it is possible, or else we obtain a partition of the vertices of G\K5 into equivalence classes. As a result, we can reduce a projective planarity or toroidality algorithm to a small constant number of simple planarity checks [6] or to a K3,3subdivision in the graph G. It significantly simplifies algorithms presented in [7], [10] and [12]. We then need to consider only the embeddings on the given surface of a K3,3subdivision, which are much less numerous than those of K5. 1.

Elimination of local bridges

, 1997
"... Let K be a subgraph of G. It is shown that if G is 3–connected modulo K then it is possible to replace branches of K by other branches joining same pairs of main vertices of K such that G has no local bridges with respect to the new subgraph K. A linear time algorithm is presented that either perfor ..."

Let K be a subgraph of G. It is shown that if G is 3–connected modulo K then it is possible to replace branches of K by other branches joining same pairs of main vertices of K such that G has no local bridges with respect to the new subgraph K. A linear time algorithm is presented that either performs such a task, or finds a Kuratowski subgraph K5 or K3,3 in a subgraph of G formed by a branch e and local bridges on e. This result is needed in linear time algorithms for embedding graphs in surfaces.
Universal obstructions for embedding extension problems
"... Let K be an induced nonseparating subgraph of a graph G, andletB be the bridge of K in G. Obstructions for extending a given 2cell embedding of K to an embedding of G in the same surface are considered. It is shown that it is possible to find a nice obstruction which means that it has bounded bran ..."

Let K be an induced nonseparating subgraph of a graph G, andletB be the bridge of K in G. Obstructions for extending a given 2cell embedding of K to an embedding of G in the same surface are considered. It is shown that it is possible to find a nice obstruction which means that it has bounded branch size up to a bounded number of “almost disjoint ” millipedes. Moreover, B contains a nice subgraph ˜ B with the following properties. If K is 2cell embedded in some surface and F is a face of K, then ˜ B admits exactly the same types of embeddings in F as B. A linear time algorithm to construct such a universal obstruction ˜ B is presented. At the same time, for every type of embeddings of ˜ B, an embedding of B ofthesametypeis determined.
Simpler Projective Plane Embedding

A projective plane is equivalent to a disk with antipodal points identified. A graph is projective planar if it can be drawn on the projective plane with no crossing edges. A linear time algorithm for projective planar embedding has been described by Mohar. We provide a new approach that takes O(n 2 ) time but is much easier to implement. We programmed a variant of this algorithm and used it to computationally verify the known list of all the projective plane obstructions. Key words: graph algorithms, surface embedding, graph embedding, projective plane, forbidden minor, obstruction 1 Background A graph G consists of a set V of vertices and a set E of edges, each of which is associated with an unordered pair of vertices from V . Throughout this paper, n denotes the number of vertices of a graph, and m is the number of edges. A graph is embeddable on a surface M if it can be drawn on M without crossing edges. Archdeacon's survey [2] provides an excellent introduction to topologica...

We study polar visibility graphs, graphs whose vertices can be represented by arcs of concentric circles with adjacency determined by radial visibility including visibility through the origin. These graphs are more general than the wellstudied barvisibility graphs and are characterized here, when arcs are proper subsets of circles, as the graphs that embed on the plane with all but at most one cutvertexonacommonfaceor on the projective plane with all cutvertices on a common face. We also characterize the graphs representable using full circles and arcs. 1

ABSTRACT. In 1988 M. Fellows conjectured that if a finite, connected graph admits a finite planar emulator, then it admits a finite planar cover. We construct a finite planar emulator for K4,5 − 4K2. D. Archdeacon [2] showed that K4,5 − 4K2 does not admit a finite planar cover; thus K4,5 − 4K2 provides a counterexample to Fellows ’ Conjecture. It is known that S. Negami’s Planar Cover Conjecture is true if and only if K1,2,2,2 admits no finite planar cover. We construct a finite planar emulator for K1,2,2,2. The existence of a finite planar cover for K1,2,2,2 is still open. 1.
