K-page crossing number minimization problem

Alberto Herrán, J. Manuel Colmenar, Abraham Duarte


The objective is to map a general graph into a book with exactly K pages, minimizing the number of edge crossings in each page. A particular solution of this problem is then obtained by placing the vertices of a graph along the spine and assigning the edges connecting the vertices to the different pages of the book.
