Matchings and Hamiltonian cycles in 1-planar graphs

We investigate the Hamiltonicity and matching properties of 1-planar graphs, a class of beyond planar graphs that allow for at most one crossing per edge. In 2019 Biedl generalized a known Hamiltonicity result by Tutte for planar graphs to 1-planar graphs. Biedl showed that a certain subclass of 4-connected 1-planar graphs is Hamiltonian. We prove that one can prescribe an edge to this Hamiltonian cycle. Using our result we provide sufficient conditions under which all matchings of size 1 and 2 can be extended to a perfect matching in an even 1-planar graph. This generalizes previous results by Plummer for planar graphs and Fujisawa et al. for 1-planar graphs.

The results are part of my master's thesis "Matchings and Hamiltonian cycles in 1-planar graphs" supervised by Michael Hoffmann, Meghana Mallik Reddy and Emo Welzl.
