A Sublinear Tester for Outerplanarity (and Other Forbidden Minors) With One-Sided Error

pdf-format:


Abstract

We consider one-sided error property testing of F-minor freeness in bounded-degree graphs for any finite family of graphs F that contains a minor of K_{2,k}, the k-circus graph, or the (k x 2)-grid for any k in N. This includes, for instance, testing whether a graph is outerplanar or a cactus graph. The query complexity of our algorithm in terms of the number of vertices in the graph, n, is O~(n^{2/3} / epsilon^5). Czumaj et al. (2014) showed that cycle-freeness and C_k-minor freeness can be tested with query complexity O~(sqrt{n}) by using random walks, and that testing H-minor freeness for any H that contains a cycles requires Omega(sqrt{n}) queries. In contrast to these results, we analyze the structure of the graph and show that either we can find a subgraph of sublinear size that includes the forbidden minor H, or we can find a pair of disjoint subsets of vertices whose edge-cut is large, which induces an H-minor.
