English abstract:
We consider the problem of untangling a given (non-planar) straight-line circular drawing δG of an
outerplanar graph G = (V,E) into a planar straight-line circular drawing by shifting a minimum
number of vertices to a new position on the circle. For an outerplanar graph G, it is clear that such
a crossing-free circular drawing always exists and we define the circular shifting number shift◦(δG)
as the minimum number of vertices that need to be shifted to resolve all crossings of δG. We show
that the problem Circular Untangling, asking whether shift◦(δG) ≤ K for a given integer K,
is NP-complete. Based on this result we study Circular Untangling for almost-planar circular
drawings, in which a single edge is involved in all the crossings. In this case we provide a tight upper
bound shift◦(δG) ≤ ⌊n2
⌋ − 1, where n is the number of vertices in G, and present a polynomial-time
algorithm to compute the circular shifting number of almost-planar drawings.
