A half-integral Erd\H{o}s-P\'osa theorem for directed odd cycles

. We prove that there exists a function f : N → R such that every directed graph G contains either k directed odd cycles where every vertex of G is contained in at most two of them, or a set of at

Excluding a Planar Matching Minor in Bipartite Graphs

A version of Erdős-Pósa property for matching minors is introduced and a direct link between this property and planarity is found and it follows that a class of bipartite graphs with perfect matchings has bounded perfect matching width if and only if it excludes a planar matching minor.

The Directed Grid Theorem

The grid theorem is confirmed in full generality to all classes of digraphs excluding a fixed undirected graph as a minor and is able to improve results by Reed 1996 on disjoint cycles of length at least l and by Kawarabayoshi, Kobayashi, Kreutzer on quarter-integral disJoint paths.

An Excluded Grid Theorem for Digraphs with Forbidden Minors

This paper proves the conjecture that the existence of a function f: N → N such that every digraph of directed tree-width at least f(k) contains a directed grid of order k and proves the excluded grid theorem for the case of digraphs excluding a fixed undirected graph as a minor.

Excluding A Grid Minor In Planar Digraphs

The conjecture that a digraph of huge tree-width has a large "cylindrical grid" minor is proved, not only for planar digraphs, but many steps of the proof work in general.

Complexity of finding embeddings in a k -tree

This work determines the complexity status of two problems related to finding the smallest number k such that a given graph is a partial k-tree and presents an algorithm with polynomially bounded (but exponential in k) worst case time complexity.

An algorithmic metatheorem for directed treewidth

The Erdos-Posa Property for Directed Graphs

A complete characterisation of the class of strongly connected digraphs which have the Erd˝ os-Posa-property is obtained (both for topological and butterfly minors) and this result is generalised to classes of dig graphs which are not strongly connected.

Towards a Polynomial Kernel for Directed Feedback Vertex Set

Two main contributions are provided: a polynomial kernel for this problem on general instances, and a linear kernel for the case where the input digraph is embeddable on a surface of bounded genus.

Subexponential parameterized algorithms on bounded-genus graphs and H-minor-free graphs

We introduce a new framework for designing fixed-parameter algorithms with subexponential running time---2O(&kradic;) nO(1). Our results apply to a broad family of graph problems, called
