A graph is 1-planar if it can be embedded in the plane so that each edge is crossed by at most one other edge. We prove that each 1-planar graph of minimum degree 5 and girth 4 contains (1) a 5-vertex adjacent to an ≤ 6-vertex, (2) a 4-cycle whose every vertex has degree at most 9, (3) a K 1,4 with all vertices having degree at most 11.
A graph is called 1-planar if it can be drawn in the plane so that each of its edges is crossed by at most one other edge. We show that every 1-planar drawing of any 1-planar graph on n vertices has at most n − 2 crossings; moreover, this bound is tight. By this novel necessary condition for 1-planarity, we characterize the 1-planarity of Cartesian product… (More)
A graph is called 1-planar if there exists a drawing in the plane so that each edge contains at most one crossing. We study maximal 1-planar graphs from the point of view of properties of their diagrams, local structure and hamiltonicity.
A graph is called 1-planar if it can be drawn in the plane so that each edge is crossed by at most one other edge. We prove that each 1-planar graph of minimum degree δ ≥ 4 contains an edge with degrees of its endvertices of type (4, ≤ 13) or (5, ≤ 9) or (6, ≤ 8) or (7, 7). We also show that for δ ≥ 5 these bounds are best possible and that the list of… (More)
An acyclic edge coloring of a graph is a proper edge coloring without bichromatic cycles. In 1978, it was conjectured that ∆(G) + 2 colors suffice for an acyclic edge coloring of every graph G . The conjecture has been verified for several classes of graphs, however, the best known upper bound for as special class as planar graphs are, is ∆ + 12 . In… (More)
