Highly Non-Convex Crossing Sequences
MetadataShow full item record
For a given graph, G, the crossing number crₐ(G) denotes the minimum number of edge crossings when a graph is drawn on an orientable surface of genus a. The sequence cr₀(G), cr₁(G), ... is said to be the crossing sequence of a G. An equivalent definition exists for non-orientable surfaces. In 1983, Jozef Širáň proved that for every decreasing, convex sequence of non-negative integers, there is a graph G such that this sequence is the crossing sequence of G. This main result of this thesis proves the existence of a graph with non-convex crossing sequence of arbitrary length.
