FPT Algorithms for Plane Completion Problems

LIPIcs-MFCS-2016-26.pdf (0.6 MB)


The Plane Subgraph (resp. Topological Minor) Completion problem asks, given a (possibly disconnected) plane (multi)graph Gamma and a connected plane (multi)graph Delta, whether it is possible to add edges in Gamma without violating the planarity of its embedding so that it contains some subgraph (resp. topological minor) that is topologically isomorphic to Delta. We give FPT algorithms that solve both problems in f(|E(Delta)|)*|E(\Gamma)|^{2} steps. Moreover, for the Plane Subgraph Completion problem we show that f(k)=2^{O(k*log(k))}.
