Tree-width is a well-known metric on undirected graphs thatmeasures how tree-like a graph is and gives a notion of graph decomposition that proves useful in algorithm development. Tree-width can be characterised by a graph searching game where a number of cops attempt to capture a robber. We consider the natural adaptation of this game to directed graphs and show that monotone strategies in the game yield a measure that can be seen to describe how close a directed graph is to a directed acyclic… CONTINUE READING
