Abstract

In a book embedding, the vertices of a graph are placed on the “spine” of a book and the edges are assigned to “pages”, so that edges on the same page do not cross. In this paper, we prove that every 1-planar graph (that is, a graph that can be drawn on the plane such that no edge is crossed more than once) admits an embedding in a book with constant number of pages. To the best of our knowledge, the best non-trivial previous upper-bound is $$O(\sqrt{n})$$ O ( n ) , where n is the number of vertices of the graph.
