Abstract: | Let G=(V,E) be a directed graph (or mixed graph) and let (Sj,l;) 1st ~ be k pairs of vertices in G. The directed vertex disjoint paths problem is to find k paths PI •... ,Pi such that P; is a directed path from Sj to t; and any two of these paths may intersect only at a common end point. This problem is NP-complete even for planar graphs. It is also NP-complete for general graphs where the number of paths is 2. We present a linear time algorithm for solving the directed problem on mixed graphs when the underline of the input graph is a series-parallel graph. |
