A family ${\mathcal F}$ of graphs has the Erd\H{o}s-P\'osa property if for every graph $G$, the maximum number of pairwise disjoint subgraphs isomorphic to members of ${\mathcal F}$ contained in $G$ and the minimum size of a set of vertices of $G$ hitting all such subgraphs are bounded by functions of each other. Robertson and Seymour proved that if ${\mathcal F}$ consists of $H$-minors for some fixed graph $H$, then the planarity of $H$ is equivalent with the Erd\H{o}s-P\'osa property. Thomas… Expand

We show that A-paths of length 0 modulo 4 have the Erd\H{o}s-P\'osa property. We also prove that A-paths of length 2 modulo 4 have the property but that A-paths of length 1 or of length 3 modulo 4 do… Expand

A framework for computing approximately optimal decompositions related to these graph measures is presented, and if the cost of an optimal decomposition is k, it is shown how to find a decomposition of cost kO(1) in time f(k) · nO( 1). Expand

The structure is not satisfied by graphs that contain a subdivision of a graph $H_3$ that has similar embedding properties as $H$ and has the same maximum degree as £H$. Expand

It is proved that for a fixed H, every graph excluding H as a topological subgraph has a tree decomposition where each part is either "almost embeddable" to a fixed surface or has bounded degree with the exception of a bounded number of vertices. Expand

This work strengthensGrohe and Marx's result, giving a more precise description of the latter kind of basic graphs of the decomposition, and only allows graphs that (almost) embed in ways that are impossible for H. Expand

Equivalence of local treewidth and linear local treewidth and its algorithmic applications

The bound generalizes previously known linear bounds for special classes of graphs proved by several authors and obtains substantially faster polynomial-time approximation schemes for a broad class of problems in apex-minor-free graphs. Expand

Diameter and Treewidth in Minor-Closed Graph Families

It is shown that treewidth is bounded by a function of the diameter in a minor-closed family, if and only if some apex graph does not belong to the family, and the O(D) bound above can be extended to bounded-genus graphs. Expand

Piercing d -Intervals

It is shown that for any finite collection of d-intervals that contains no k + 1 pairwise disjoint members, there is a set of O(dk) points that intersects each member of the collection, and if the quadratic dependence on d is indeed best possible, Kaiser’s estimate is indeed better by roughly a factor of 2.
