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.
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.
Edge Partition of Toroidal Graphs into Forests in Linear Time
"... In this paper we give a linear algorithm to edge partition a toroidal graph, i.e., graph that can be embedded on the orientable surface of genus one without edge crossing, into three forests plus a set of at most three edges. For triangulated toroidal graphs, this algorithm gives a linear algorithm ..."

In this paper we give a linear algorithm to edge partition a toroidal graph, i.e., graph that can be embedded on the orientable surface of genus one without edge crossing, into three forests plus a set of at most three edges. For triangulated toroidal graphs, this algorithm gives a linear algorithm for finding three edgedisjoint spanning trees. This is in a certain way an extension of the wellknown algorithm of Schnyder’s decomposition for planar graph.
