(LaTeX) Abstract:
We study the problem of optimizing over the set of all combinatorial embeddings
of a given planar graph.
Our objective function prefers certain cycles of $G$ as face cycles in the embed
ding.
The motivation for studying this problem arises in graph drawing, where the chos
en embedding has an important influence on the aesthetics of the drawing.

We characterize the set of all possible embeddings of a given biconnected planar
graph $G$ by means of a system of linear inequalities with $\{0,1\}$-variables
corresponding to the set of those cycles in $G$ which can appear in a combinator
ial embedding. This system of linear inequalities can be constructed recursively
using SPQR-trees and a new splitting operation.

Our computational results on two benchmark sets of graphs are surprising: The nu
mber of variables
and constraints seems to grow only linearly with the size of the graphs although
the number of
embeddings grows exponentially. For all tested graphs (up to 500 vertices) and l
inear objective
functions, the resulting integer linear programs could be generated within 10 mi
nutes and solved within two seconds on a Sun Enterprise 10000 using CPLEX.
