"... A queue layout of a graph consists of a total order of the vertices, and a partition of the edges into queues, such that no two edges in the same queue are nested.

A queue layout of a graph consists of a total order of the vertices, and a partition of the edges into queues, such that no two edges in the same queue are nested. The minimum number of queues in a queue layout of a graph is its queuenumber. A threedimensional (straight line grid) drawing of a graph represents the vertices by points in Z and the edges by noncrossing linesegments. This paper contributes three main results: (1) It is proved that the minimum volume of a certain type of threedimensional drawing of a graph G is closely related to the queuenumber of G. In particular, if G is an nvertex member of a proper minorclosed family of graphs (such as a planar graph), then G has a O(1) O(1) O(n) drawing if and only if G has O(1) queuenumber.
Acyclic colourings of planar graphs with large girth

, 1999
"... A proper vertexcolouring of a graph is acyclic if there are no 2coloured cycles. It is known that every planar graph is acyclically 5colourable, and that there are planar graphs with acyclic chromatic number χ a � 5 and girth g � 4. It is proved here that a planar graph satisfies χ ..."

Let G be a graph with chromatic number χ(G). A vertex colouring of G is acyclic if each bichromatic subgraph is a forest. A star colouring of G is an acyclic colouring in which each bichromatic subgraph is a star forest. Let χa(G) and χs(G) denote the acyclic and star chromatic numbers of G. This paper investigates acyclic and star colourings of subdivisions. Let G ′ be the graph obtained from G by subdividing each edge once. We prove that acyclic (respectively, star) colourings of G ′ correspond to vertex partitions of G in which each subgraph has small arboricity (chromatic index). It follows that χa(G ′), χs(G ′ ) and χ(G) are tied, in the sense that each is bounded by a function of the other. Moreover the binding functions that we establish are all tight. The oriented chromatic number − → χ (G) of an (undirected) graph G is the maximum, taken over all orientations D of G, of the minimum number of colours in a vertex colouring of D such that between any two colour classes, all edges have the same direction. We prove that − → χ (G ′ ) = χ(G) whenever χ(G) ≥ 9.

"... Let F be a family of connected bipartite graphs, each with at least three vertices. A proper vertex colouring of a graph G with no bichromatic subgraph in F is Ffree. The Ffree chromatic number χ(G, F) of a graph G is the minimum number of colours in an Ffree colouring of G. For appropriate choic ..."

Let F be a family of connected bipartite graphs, each with at least three vertices. A proper vertex colouring of a graph G with no bichromatic subgraph in F is Ffree. The Ffree chromatic number χ(G, F) of a graph G is the minimum number of colours in an Ffree colouring of G. For appropriate choices of F, several wellknown types of colourings fit into this framework, including acyclic colourings, star colourings, and distance2 colourings. This paper studies Ffree colourings of the cartesian product of graphs. Let H be the cartesian product of the graphs G1, G2,..., Gd. Our main result establishes an upper bound on the Ffree chromatic number of H in terms of the maximum Ffree chromatic number of the Gi and the following numbertheoretic concept. A set S of natural numbers is kmultiplicative Sidon if ax = by implies a = b and x = y whenever x,y ∈ S and 1 ≤ a, b ≤ k. Suppose that χ(Gi, F) ≤ k and S is a kmultiplicative Sidon set of cardinality d. We prove that χ(H, F) ≤ 1+2k·max S. We then prove that the maximum density of a kmultiplicative Sidon set is Θ(1/log k). It follows that χ(H, F) ≤ O(dk log k). We illustrate the method with numerous examples, some of which generalise or improve upon existing results in the literature.
