Algorithms for Planar Graphs ( plane_graph_alg )

node ST_NUMBERING(const graph& G, node_array<int>& stnum, list<node>& stlist, edge e_st = nil)
    ST_NUMBERING computes an st-numbering of G. If e_st is nil then t is set to some arbitrary node of G. The node s is set to a neighbor of t and is returned. If e_st is not nil then s is set to the source of e_st and t is set to its target. The nodes of G are numbered such that s has number 1, t has number n, and every node v different from s and t has a smaller and a larger numbered neighbor. The ordered list of nodes is returned in stlist. If G has no nodes then nil is returned and if G has exactly one node then this node is returned and given number one.
Precondition G is biconnected.

bool PLANAR(graph& , bool embed=false)
    PLANAR takes as input a directed graph G(V, E) and performs a planarity test for it. G must not contain selfloops. If the second argument embed has value true and G is a planar graph it is transformed into a planar map (a combinatorial embedding such that the edges in all adjacency lists are in clockwise ordering). PLANAR returns true if G is planar and false otherwise. The algorithm ([45]) has running time O(| V| + | E|).


bool PLANAR(graph& G, list<edge>& el, bool embed=false)
    PLANAR takes as input a directed graph G(V, E) and performs a planarity test for G. PLANAR returns true if G is planar and false otherwise. If G is not planar a Kuratowsky-Subgraph is computed and returned in el.


bool CHECK_KURATOWSKI(const graph& G, const list<edge>& el)
    returns true if all edges in el are edges of G and if the edges in el form a Kuratowski subgraph of G, returns false otherwise. Writes diagnostic output to cerr.


int KURATOWSKI(graph& G, list<node>& V, list<edge>& E, node_array<int>& deg)
    KURATOWKI computes a Kuratowski subdivision K of G as follows. V is the list of all nodes and subdivision points of K. For all v $ \in$ V the degree deg[v] is equal to 2 for subdivision points, 4 for all other nodes if K is a K5, and -3 (+3) for the nodes of the left (right) side if K is a K3, 3. E is the list of all edges in the Kuratowski subdivision.


list<edge> TRIANGULATE_PLANAR_MAP(graph& G)
    TRIANGULATE_PLANAR_MAP takes a directed graph G representing a planar map. It triangulates the faces of G by inserting additional edges. The list of inserted edges is returned.
Precondition G must be connected.
The algorithm ([47]) has running time O(| V| + | E|).


void FIVE_COLOR(graph& G, node_array<int>& C)
    colors the nodes of G using 5 colors, more precisely, computes for every node v a color C[v] $ \in$ {0,..., 4}, such that C[source(e)]! = C[target(e)] for every edge e. Precondition G is planar. Remark: works also for many (sparse ?) non-planar graph.

void INDEPENDENT_SET(const graph& G, list<node>& I)
    determines an independent set of nodes I in G. Every node in I has degree at most 9. If G is planar and has no parallel edges then I contains at least n/6 nodes.

bool Is_CCW_Ordered(const graph& G, const node_array<int>& x, const node_array<int>& y)
    checks whether the cyclic adjacency list of any node v agrees with the counter-clockwise ordering of the neighbors of v around v defined by their geometric positions.

bool SORT_EDGES(graph& G, const node_array<int>& x, const node_array<int>& y)
    reorders all adjacency lists such the cyclic adjacency list of any node v agrees with the counter-clockwise order of v's neighbors around v defined by their geometric positions. The function returns true if G is a plane map after the call.

bool Is_CCW_Ordered(const graph& G, const edge_array<int>& dx, const edge_array<int>& dy)
    checks whether the cyclic adjacency list of any node v agrees with the counter-clockwise ordering of the neighbors of v around v. The direction of edge e is given by the vector (dx(e), dy(e)).

bool SORT_EDGES(graph& G, const edge_array<int>& dx, const edge_array<int>& dy)
    reorders all adjacency lists such the cyclic adjacency list of any node v agrees with the counter-clockwise order of v's neighbors around v. The direction of edge e is given by the vector (dx(e), dy(e)). The function returns true if G is a plane map after the call.
