Many combinatorial problems can be efficiently solved for series-parallel graphs or partial k-trees. The edge-coloring problem is one of a few combinatorial problems for which no efficient algorithms have been obtained for series-parallel multigraphs. This paper gives an algorithm which optimally edge-colors a given series-parallel multigraph in time O([V[z~), where V is the set of vertices and A the maximum degree.
