In this seminar, we'll introduce and consider some of fundamental topological questions for graphs on surfaces, such as finding the shortest topologically nontrivial cycle or computing maximum flows and
minimum cuts in them. Such problems are not only natural ones to consider from a topological graph theory perspective, but also many applications in combinatorial optimization, graphics, and graph drawing. Algorithms for these problems are often considerably more tractable than for general graphs, and build on a large body of work from planar
graphs.
