Given an undirected graph, the planarity testing problem is to determine whether the graph can be drawn in the plane without any crossing edges. Linear time planarity testing algorithms have previously been designed by Hopcroft and Tarjan, and by Booth and Lueker. However, their approaches are quite involved. Several other approaches have also been developed for simplifying the planariy test. In this paper, we developed a very simple linear time testing algorithm based only on a depthfirst search tree. When the given graph is not planar, our algorithm immediately produces explicit Kuratowski's subgraphs. A new data structure, PCtrees, is introduced, which can be viewed as abstract subembeddings of actual planar embeddings. A graphreduction technique is adopted so that the embeddings for the planar biconnected components constructed at each iteration never have to be changed. The recognition and embedding are actually done simultaneously in our algorithm 1 . The implementation of o...
A linear time algorithm for finding a maximal planar subgraph based on PCtrees
 of Lecture Notes in Computer Science
, 2005
"... ABSTRACT. Given an undirected graph G, the maximal planar subgraph problem is to determine a planar subgraph H of G such that no edge of GH can be added to H without destroying planarity. Polynomial algorithms have been obtained by Jakayumar, Thulasiraman and Swamy [6] and Wu [9]. O(mlogn) algorith ..."

ABSTRACT. Given an undirected graph G, the maximal planar subgraph problem is to determine a planar subgraph H of G such that no edge of GH can be added to H without destroying planarity. Polynomial algorithms have been obtained by Jakayumar, Thulasiraman and Swamy [6] and Wu [9]. O(mlogn) algorithms were previously given by Di Battista and Tamassia [3] and Cai, Han and Tarjan [2]. A recent O(mα (n)) algorithm was obtained by La Poute [7]. Our algorithm is based on a simple planarity test [5] developed by the author, which is a vertex addition algorithm based on a depthfirstsearch ordering. The planarity test [5] uses no complicated data structure and is conceptually simpler than Hopcroft and Tarjan's path addition and Lempel, Even and Cederbaum's vertex addition approaches. 1 1.

In Shih & Hsu [9] a simpler planarity test was introduced utilizing a data structure called PCtrees (generalized from PQtrees). In this paper we give an efficient implementation of that linear time algorithm and illustrate in detail how to obtain a Kuratowski subgraph when the given graph is not planar, and how to obtain the embedding alongside the testing algorithm. We have implemented the algorithm using LEDA and an object code is available at
