Graphs with Two Crossings Are 5-Choosable

Zdeněk Dvořák, Bernard Lidický, Riste Škrekovski
2011 SIAM Journal on Discrete Mathematics  
We extend the result by showing that every graph with at most two crossings is 5-choosable.  ...  A graph G is k-choosable if G can be properly colored whenever every vertex has a list of at least k available colors. Thomassen's theorem states that every planar graph is 5-choosable.  ...  Since all graphs with crossing number one are 5-choosable by [4] , we can assume that G has two dangerous configurations: either cr(G) = 2 or cr(G) = 1 and G contains T .  ...

Defective Colouring of Graphs Excluding A Subgraph or Minor

Patrice Ossona De Mendez, Sang-Il Oum, David R. Wood
2018 Combinatorica  
This result leads to new defective colouring results for several graph classes, including graphs with linear crossing number, graphs with given thickness (with relevance to the earth-moon problem), graphs  ...  with given stack- or queue-number, linklessly or knotlessly embeddable graphs, graphs with given Colin de Verdière parameter, and graphs excluding a complete bipartite graph as a topological minor.  ...  In particular, Lemma 5.2 implies that graphs with thickness 2 are (5, 36)-choosable, (6, 19) -choosable, (7, 12)-choosable, (8, 9) -choosable, (9, 6)-choosable, (10, 4)-choosable, and (11, 2)-choosable  ...

Flexibility of planar graphs without 4-cycles [article]

Tomáš Masařík
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Recently, the structural properties of planar graphs in terms of flexibility were investigated. We continue this line of research. Let G be a planar graph with a list assignment L.  ...  The notion called flexibility was recently defined in [Dvořák, Norin, Postle: List coloring with requests, Journal of Graph Theory 2019].  ...  In the latter case two colors are crossed out from the list of v. Keep in mind that this cannot happen twice since there are no two edge-adjacent triangles.  ...
