One or Two Disjoint Circuits Cover Independent Edges

Ken-ichi Kawarabayashi
2002 Journal of combinatorial theory. Series B (Print)  
If k is even or G − L is connected, then there exist one or two disjoint circuits containing all the edges in L. This theorem is the first step in the proof of the conjecture of L.  ...  Lovász (1974, Period. Math. Hungar., 82) and D. R. Woodall (1977, J. Combin. Theory Ser. B 22, 274-278).  ...  Considering this situation, Lovász [14] and Woodall [18] independently conjectured the following: Conjecture 1.  ...

Circuits through prescribed edges [article]

Paul Knappe, Max Pitz
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We prove that a connected graph contains a circuit---a closed walk that repeats no edges---through any k prescribed edges if and only if it contains no odd cut of size at most k.  ...  The strongest of these is the following: Conjecture 1.1 (Lovász-Woodall Conjecture) . Let S be a set of k independent edges in a k-connected graph G.  ...  the following variants of the Lovász-Woodall Conjecture.  ...

Fractional Matchings, Component-Factors and Edge-Chromatic Critical Graphs

Antje Klopp, Eckhard Steffen
2021 Graphs and Combinatorics  
Consequences of these results for Vizing's critical graph conjectures are discussed.  ...  Furthermore, it shows that for every edge e of G, there is a $$\{K_{1,1}, K_{1,2}, C_n:n\ge 3\}$$ { K 1 , 1 , K 1 , 2 , C n : n ≥ 3 } -factor F with $$e \in E(F)$$ e ∈ E ( F ) .  ...  A set M (M EðGÞ or M & VðGÞ) is independent, if no two elements of M are adjacent. An independent set of edges is also called a matching of G.  ...

Combinatorial optimization: packing and covering

In a clutter, a matching is a set of pairwise disjoint edges. A transversal is a set of vertices that intersects all the edges.  ...  The elements of V are the vertices of C and those of E are the edges. For example, a simple graph (V, E) (no multiple edges or loops) is a clutter.  ...  These notes are based on a series of ten lectures delivered at a regional  ...

Moreover, we can construct all bipartitions of a k-complete bihypergraph, if any, in polynomial time.  ...  We show that recognizing strongly bipartite bihypergraphs (H 0 , H 1 ) is a co-NP-complete problem even in the case where H 0 is a graph and H 1 has exactly one hyperedge.  ...  For example, Four Color Conjecture is equivalent to the following: the family of all odd circuits of a planar graph (considered as sets of edges) has property B.  ...
