We study various properties of the random planar graph Rn, drawn uniformly at random from the class Pn of all simple planar graphs on n labelled vertices. In particular, we show that the probability that Rn is connected is bounded away from 0 and from 1. We also show for example that each positive integer k, with high probability Rn has linearly many vertices of a given degree, in each embedding Rn has linearly many faces of a given size, and Rn has exponentially many automorphisms.
Optimal Coding and Sampling of Triangulations

"... Abstract. We present a simple encoding of plane triangulations (aka. maximal planar graphs) by plane trees with two leaves per inner node. Our encoding is a bijection taking advantage of the minimal Schnyder tree decomposition of a plane triangulation. Coding and decoding take linear time. As a bypr ..."

Abstract. We present a simple encoding of plane triangulations (aka. maximal planar graphs) by plane trees with two leaves per inner node. Our encoding is a bijection taking advantage of the minimal Schnyder tree decomposition of a plane triangulation. Coding and decoding take linear time. As a byproduct we derive: (i) a simple interpretation of the formula for the number of plane triangulations with n vertices, (ii) a linear random sampling algorithm, (iii) an explicit and simple information theory optimal encoding. 1

We present an expected polynomial time algorithm to generate a labeled planar graph uniformly at random. To generate the planar graphs, we derive recurrence formulas that count all such graphs with n vertices and m edges, based on a decomposition into 1, 2, and 3connected components. For 3connected graphs we apply a recent random generation algorithm by Schaeffer and a counting formula by Mullin and Schellenberg.
Planar Graphs, via WellOrderly Maps and Trees
, 2004
"... The family of wellorderly maps is a family of planar maps with the property that every connected planar graph has at least one plane embedding which is a wellorderly map. We show that the number of wellorderly maps with n nodes is at most 2 αn+O(log n),whereα ≈ 4.91. A direct consequence of thi ..."

The family of wellorderly maps is a family of planar maps with the property that every connected planar graph has at least one plane embedding which is a wellorderly map. We show that the number of wellorderly maps with n nodes is at most 2 αn+O(log n),whereα ≈ 4.91. A direct consequence of this is a new upper bound on the number p(n) of unlabeled planar graphs with n nodes, log 2 p(n) � 4.91n. The result is then used to show that asymptotically almost all (labeled or unlabeled), (connected or not) planar graphs with n nodes have between 1.85n and 2.44n edges. Finally we obtain as an outcome of our combinatorial analysis an explicit linear time encoding algorithm for unlabeled planar graphs using, in the worstcase, a rate of 4.91 bits per node and of 2.82 bits per edge.
Random planar graphs with n nodes and a fixed number of edges

"... Let P(n,m) be the class of simple labelled planar graphs with n nodes and m edges, and let Rn,q be a graph drawn uniformly at random from P(n, bqnc). We show properties that hold with high probability (w.h.p.) for Rn,q when 1 < q < 3. For example, we show that Rn,q contains w.h.p. linearly man ..."

Let P(n,m) be the class of simple labelled planar graphs with n nodes and m edges, and let Rn,q be a graph drawn uniformly at random from P(n, bqnc). We show properties that hold with high probability (w.h.p.) for Rn,q when 1 < q < 3. For example, we show that Rn,q contains w.h.p. linearly many nodes of each given degree and linearly many node disjoint copies of each given fixed connected planar graph. Additionally, we show that the probability that Rn,q is connected is bounded away from one by a nonzero constant. As a tool we show that (P(n, bqnc)/n!)1/n tends to a limit as n tends to infinity. 1

Abstract. We introduce and study orderly spanning trees of plane graphs. This algorithmic tool generalizes canonical orderings, which exist only for triconnected plane graphs. Although not every plane graph admits an orderly spanning tree, we provide an algorithm to compute an orderly pair for any connected planar graph G, consisting of an embedded planar graph H isomorphic to G, and an orderly spanning tree of H. We also present several applications of orderly spanning trees: (1) a new constructive proof for Schnyder’s realizer theorem, (2) the first algorithm for computing an areaoptimal 2visibility drawing of a planar graph, and (3) the most compact known encoding of a planar graph with O(1)time query support. All algorithms in this paper run in linear time.

In this article we define a canonical decomposition of rooted outerplanar maps into a spanning tree and a list of edges. This decomposition, constructible in linear time, implies the existence of bijection between rooted outerplanar maps with n nodes and bicolored rooted ordered trees with n nodes where all the nodes of the last branch are colored white. As a consequence, for rooted outerplanar maps of n nodes, we derive: an enumeration formula, and an asymptotic of 2 3n (log n) ; an optimal data structure of asymptotically 3n bits, built in O(n) time, supporting adjacency and degree queries in worstcase constant time and neighbors query of a ddegree node in worstcase O(d) time...

We define and study a structure called transversal edgepartition related to triangulations without non empty triangles, which is equivalent to the regular edge labeling discovered by Kant and He. We study other properties of this structure and show that it gives rise to a new straightline drawing algorithm for triangulations without non empty triangles, and more generally for 4connected plane graphs with at least 4 border vertices. Taking uniformly at random such a triangulation with 4 border vertices and n vertices, the size of the grid is almost surely n
