Let C be a clustered graph and suppose that the planar embedding of its underlying graph is fixed. Is testing the cplanarity of C easier than in the variable embedding setting? In this paper we give a first contribution towards answering the above question. Namely, we characterize cplanar embedded flat clustered graphs with at most five vertices per face and give an efficient testing algorithm for such graphs. The results are based on a more general methodology that sheds new light on the cplanarity testing problem.
Overlapping Cluster Planarity
, 2008
"... This paper investigates a new direction in the area of cluster planarity by addressing the following question: Let G be a graph along with a hierarchy of vertex clusters, where clusters can partially intersect. Does G admit a drawing where each cluster is inside a simple closed region, no two edges ..."

This paper investigates a new direction in the area of cluster planarity by addressing the following question: Let G be a graph along with a hierarchy of vertex clusters, where clusters can partially intersect. Does G admit a drawing where each cluster is inside a simple closed region, no two edges intersect, and no edge intersects a region twice? We investigate the interplay between this problem and the classical cluster planarity testing problem where clusters are not allowed to partially intersect. Characterizations, models, and algorithms are discussed.
CPlanarity of cconnected clustered graphs

"... We present the first characterization of cplanarity for cconnected clustered graphs. The characterization is based on the interplay between the hierarchy of the clusters and the hierarchies of the triconnected and biconnected components of the underlying graph. Based on such a characterization, we ..."

We present the first characterization of cplanarity for cconnected clustered graphs. The characterization is based on the interplay between the hierarchy of the clusters and the hierarchies of the triconnected and biconnected components of the underlying graph. Based on such a characterization, we provide a lineartime cplanarity testing and embedding algorithm for cconnected clustered graphs. The algorithm is reasonably easy to implement, since it exploits as building blocks simple algorithmic tools like the computation of lowest common ancestors, minimum and maximum spanning trees, and counting sorts. It also makes use of wellknown data structures as SPQRtrees and BCtrees. If the test fails, the algorithm identifies a structural element responsible for the noncplanarity of the input clustered graph.
Advances on CPlanarity Testing of Extrovert CGraphs
"... Abstract The problem of testing cplanarity of cgraphs is unknown to be NPcomplete or in P. Previous work solved this problem on some special classes of cgraphs. In particular, Goodrich, Lueker, and Sun tested cplanarity of extrovert cgraphs in O(n 3) time [5]. In this paper, we improve the ti ..."

Abstract The problem of testing cplanarity of cgraphs is unknown to be NPcomplete or in P. Previous work solved this problem on some special classes of cgraphs. In particular, Goodrich, Lueker, and Sun tested cplanarity of extrovert cgraphs in O(n 3) time [5]. In this paper, we improve the time complexity of the testing algorithm in [5] to O(n) 2. Keywords:
Shrinking the Search Space for Clustered Planarity
"... Abstract. A clustered graph is a graph augmented with a hierarchical inclusion structure over its vertices, and arises very naturally in multiple application areas. While it is long known that planarity—i.e., drawability without edge crossings—of graphs can be tested in polynomial (linear) time, the ..."

Abstract. A clustered graph is a graph augmented with a hierarchical inclusion structure over its vertices, and arises very naturally in multiple application areas. While it is long known that planarity—i.e., drawability without edge crossings—of graphs can be tested in polynomial (linear) time, the complexity for the clustered case is still unknown. In this paper, we present a new graph theoretic reduction which allows us to considerably shrink the combinatorial search space, which is of benefit for all enumerationtype algorithms. Based thereon, we give new classes of polynomially testable graphs and a practically efficient exact planarity test for general clustered graphs based on an integer linear program. 1
