(LaTeX) Abstract:
Combinations of graph drawing and map labeling problems yield
challenging mathematical problems and have direct applications,
\emph{e.g.}, in automation engineering. We call graph drawing problems
in which subsets of vertices and edges need to be labeled \emph{graph
labeling problems}. Unlike in map labeling where the position of the
objects is specified in the input, the coordinates of vertices and
edges in a graph drawing problem instance are yet to be determined and
thus create additional degrees of freedom. We concentrate on the
\emph{Compaction and Labeling (COLA) Problem}: Given an orthogonal
representation---as produced by algorithms within the
topology--shape--metrics paradigm---and some label information, the
task is to generate a labeled orthogonal embedding with minimum
weighted sum of edge length and perimeter. We characterize feasible
solutions of the \emph{COLA} problem extending an existing framework
for solving pure compaction problems. Based on the graph--theoretical
characterization, we present a branch--and--cut algorithm which
computes optimally labeled orthogonal drawings for given instances of
the \emph{COLA} problem. Computational experiments on a benchmark set
of practical instances show that our method is superior to the
traditional approach of applying map labeling algorithms to graph
drawings. To our knowledge, this is the first algorithm especially
designed to solve graph labeling problems.
