Definition of the Queens Graph The nxn queens graph Q nxn is the diagram created by connecting the vertices of two cells on a chessboard with an edge if a queen can travel from one vertex to the other in a single turn. (Gripshover 2007) The nxn queens graph Q nxn is the diagram created by connecting the vertices of two cells on a chessboard with an edge if a queen can travel from one vertex to the other in a single turn. (Gripshover 2007) Q nxn can be broken down into rows, columns, and diagonals. Q nxn can be broken down into rows, columns, and diagonals. A complete graph K n is a graph on n vertices such that all possible edges between two vertices exist in the graph. (Blankenship 2003) A complete graph K n is a graph on n vertices such that all possible edges between two vertices exist in the graph. (Blankenship 2003)

Book Embeddings A book consists of a set of pages (half-planes) whose boundaries are identified on a spine (line). (Blankenship 2003) A book consists of a set of pages (half-planes) whose boundaries are identified on a spine (line). (Blankenship 2003) To embed a graph in a book linearly order the vertices in the spine and assign edges to pages such that: To embed a graph in a book linearly order the vertices in the spine and assign edges to pages such that: Each edge is assigned to exactly one page. Each edge is assigned to exactly one page. No two edges cross in a page. No two edges cross in a page.

Book Thickness The book thickness of a graph G, denoted BT(G), is the fewest number of pages needed to embed a graph in a book over all possible vertex orderings and edge assignments. (Blankenship 2003) The book thickness of a graph G, denoted BT(G), is the fewest number of pages needed to embed a graph in a book over all possible vertex orderings and edge assignments. (Blankenship 2003) An outerplanar graph can be drawn in a plane such that no two edges cross and every vertex is incident with the infinite face. An outerplanar graph can be drawn in a plane such that no two edges cross and every vertex is incident with the infinite face.

The edge set of H is a subset of the edge set of G. In other words, H is obtained from G by a sequence of deleting edges and vertices of G. Note that if a vertex is deleted, the edges adjacent to the vertex must also be deleted. (Bondy, Murty 1981) In other words, H is obtained from G by a sequence of deleting edges and vertices of G. Note that if a vertex is deleted, the edges adjacent to the vertex must also be deleted. (Bondy, Murty 1981) Q nxn is a subgraph of the complete graph K. Q nxn is a subgraph of the complete graph K.

Definition of Maximal Outerplanar Graph A maximal outerplanar graph is an outerplanar graph such that no edges can be added without violating the graph’s outerplanarity. (Ku, Wang 2002) A maximal outerplanar graph is an outerplanar graph such that no edges can be added without violating the graph’s outerplanarity.

Single Pawn Placement What effect does placing a single pawn on the board have on the upper and lower bounds? What effect does placing a single pawn on the board have on the upper and lower bounds? Two sets of edges are removed: Two sets of edges are removed: All edges with the pawn vertex v p as an endpoint. All edges with the pawn vertex v p as an endpoint. All edges “crossing over” v p. All edges “crossing over” v p. Figure 15: Pawn blocking queen movement Figure 15: Pawn blocking queen movement

Single Pawn Edge Removal Conjecture: The number of edges removed depends on the dimensions of the board, the row number, of the board, the row number, and the column number: (2r+c)n - 3 - (2i-2) - (2k-3), (2r+c)n - 3 - (2i-2) - (2k-3), which is equal to (2r+c)n - 3 - c(c-1) - (r-1) 2 (2r+c)n - 3 - c(c-1) - (r-1) 2 where c represents the column number, r the row, and c ≤ r ≤.
