Universal Obstructions of Graph Parameters


We introduce a graph-parametric framework for obtaining obstruction characterizations of graph parameters with respect to partial ordering relations. For this, we define the notions of class obstruction, parametric obstruction, and universal obstruction as combinatorial objects that determine the asymptotic behavior of graph parameters. Our framework permits a unified framework for classifying graph parameters. Under this framework, we survey existing graph- theoretic results on most known graph parameters. Also we provide some unifying results on their classification.
