嵌入亏格极小非环面图Embedding; Genus; Minimal Nontoroidal Graph



Using the technique of embedding, we prove that the graphs obtained fromK8 , the complete graph on eight vertices, by deleting the edges ofK3 , a triangle, orK2,3 , the complete bipartite graph with 2 vertices and 3 vertices, orK2∪K2∪P3 , the disjoint union of two paths of length one and one path of length two, are minimal nontoroidal graphs.
