On minimal forbidden subgraphs for the class of EDM-graphs

Gašper Jaklič, Jolanda Modic


In this paper, a relation between graph distance matrices and Euclidean distance matrices (EDM) is considered. Graphs, for which the distance matrix is not an EDM (NEDM-graphs), are studied. All simple connected non-isomorphic graphs on n <= 8 nodes are analysed and a characterization of the smallest NEDM-graphs, i.e., the minimal forbidden subgraphs, is given. It is proven that bipartite graphs and some subdivisions of the smallest NEDM-graphs are NEDM-graphs, too.
