For many types of graphs, criteria have been discovered that give necessary and sufficient conditions for an integer sequence to be the degree sequence of such a graph. These criteria tend to take the form of a set of inequalities, and in the case of the Erdős-Gallai criterion (for simple undirected graphs) and the Gale-Ryser criterion (for bipartite graphs), it has been shown that the number of inequalities that must be checked can be reduced significantly. We show that similar reductions hold… CONTINUE READING
