@article{Mao2021ShortestNS, title={Shortest non-separating st-path on chordal graphs}, author={Xiao Mao}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2021}, volume={abs/2101.03519} }

Many NP-Hard problems on general graphs, such as maximum independence set, maximal cliques and graph coloring can be solved efficiently on chordal graphs. In this paper, we explore the problem of non-separating st-paths defined on edges: for a connected undirected graph and two vertices, a nonseparating path is a path between the two vertices such that if we remove all the edges on the path, the graph remains connected. We show that on general graphs, checking the existence of non-separating… Expand

The purpose of this paper is to study the number of nonseparating u—v path for two arbitrary vertices u and v of a given graph and it is proved that if G is a 5-connected graph, then for every pair of vertices U and v there exists a path P[u, v] such that G—V(P[ u, v]) is 2-connected. Expand
