|Title:||Removable cycles in non-bipartite graphs|
|Abstract:||In this paper we prove the following result. Suppose that s and t are vertices of a 3-connected graph G such that G - s - t is not bipartite and there is no cutset X of size three in G for which some component U of G - X is disjoint from is. t). Then either (1) G contains an induced path P from s to t such that G - V (P) is not bipartite or (2) G can be embedded in the plane so that every odd face contains one of s or t. Furthermore, if (1) holds then we can insist that G - V(P) is connected, while if G is 5-connected then (1) must hold and P can be chosen so that G - V(P) is 2-connected.
