The publication first describes connections among a few uncomplicated difficulties and technics of combinatorics and statistical physics. The discrete arithmetic and physics terminology are on the topic of one another. utilizing the demonstrated connections, a few interesting actions in a single box are proven from a viewpoint of the opposite box. the aim of the booklet is to stress those interactions as a powerful and winning instrument. actually, this perspective has been a robust development in either examine groups lately.
It additionally evidently results in many open difficulties, a few of which appear to be uncomplicated. optimistically, this publication might help making those fascinating difficulties appealing to complicated scholars and researchers.

G. each one-element set necessarily satisﬁes the condition with equality. Let |S0 | = m > 0, let C1 , · · · , Cm be the components of G − S0 of odd cardinality and let D1 , · · · , Dk be the components of G − S0 of even cardinality. • Each Dj has a perfect matching: For each S ⊂ V (Dj ) we have o(G − S0 ) + o(Dj − S) = o(G − (S0 ∪ S)) ≤ |S0 | + |S|. Since o(G − S0 ) = |S0 |, we have that o(Dj − S) ≤ |S|. Hence the assertion holds for Dj by the induction assumption. • If v ∈ Ci then Ci − v has a perfect matching: If not then the condition of the theorem is not satisﬁed for a set S ⊂ V (Ci ) − v and since o(Ci − ({v} ∪ S)) + |{v} ∪ S| has the same (odd) parity as |V (Ci )|, we get o(Ci − ({v} ∪ S)) ≥ |S| + 2.

Such a set of minimal excluded minors can be extremely large: there are some natural classes M for which this ’ﬁniteness statement’ may be formulated in Finite Set Theory, but cannot be proved or disproved there. The main tool in obtaining the proof of the Wagner’s conjecture is a structural theorem for the classes of graphs with an excluded minor. Another discovery of Robertson and Seymour is a polynomial algorithm for testing whether an input graph has a ﬁxed minor. 2. Membership testing for any minor-closed class C of graphs admits a polynomial algorithm.

1) that neither a subdivision of K5 nor a subdivision of K3,3 is planar. 19 below. We recall that G/e denotes the multigraph obtained from G by contraction of the edge e. In this part we are not interested in the loops or the multiple edges and so we delete them after each contraction. We hence stay in the class of graphs. 16. Every 3-connected graph G = (V, E) with at least 5 vertices contains an edge e such that the graph G/e is 3-connected. Proof. Let G be a counterexample and let xy = e ∈ E.
