On the Vertex Separation of Maximal Outerplanar Graphs

Markov, Minko (2008)

Serdica Journal of Computing


We investigate the NP-complete problem Vertex Separation (VS) on Maximal Outerplanar Graphs (mops). We formulate and prove a “main theorem for mops”, a necessary and sufficient condition for the vertex separation of a mop being k. The main theorem reduces the vertex separation of mops to a special kind of stretchability, one that we call affixability, of submops.
