We prove that a large family of graphs which are decomposable with respect to the modular decomposition can be reconstructed from their collection of vertex-deleted subgraphs.

Abstract An algebra A is said to be finitely related if the clone Clo(A) of its term operations is determined by a finite set of finitary relations. We prove that each finite idempotent semigroupExpand

Operator decomposition of graphs and the reconstruction conjecture
We present the method of proving the reconstructibility of graph classes based on the new type of decomposition of graphs - the operator decomposition. The properties of this decomposition areExpand
What is reconstruction for ordered sets?
This survey paper is interested in binary relations and particularly in partially ordered binary relations, and presents most of the known results on partially ordered sets and that for different kinds of reconstruction: among them the [email protected]?sse-reconstruction, the Ulam-re construction, the max- reconstruction and the set-re construction.

A congruence theorem for trees.

Critically indecomposable partially ordered sets, graphs, tournaments and other binary relational structures
It will be shown in this paper that critically indecomposable partially ordered sets are rather scarce; indeed, there are none of odd order, there is exactly one of order 4, and for each even k ⪖ 6 there are exactly two of order k . Expand

Recognition Problem in Reconstruction for Decomposable Relations
Let R be a binary and reflexive relation on a finite set E. A subset X of E is an interval of R if for a, b ∈ X and x ∈ E \ X, we have: R(a, x) = R(b, x) and R(x, a) = R(x, b). So ∅, E and everyExpand
