On Comparability Graphs: Theory and Applications

Pp. 139-160 (22)

Matthias Dehmer and Lavanya Sivakumar


In this paper, we review classical and recent developments on comparability graphs. Also, we demonstrate that comparability graphs are useful to analyze molecular graphs by presenting classical and new results. In fact, it turns out that the underlying model is quite general and, hence, could be used to analyze any kind of network data.
