On partial descriptions of König graphs for odd paths and all their spanning supergraphs

Optimization Letters. 2021. P. 1-16.

We consider graphs, which and all induced subgraphs of which possess the following property: the maximum number of disjoint paths on k vertices equals the minimum cardinality of vertex sets, covering all paths on k vertices. We call such graphs König for the k-path and all its spanning supergraphs. For each odd k, we reveal an infinite family of minimal forbidden subgraphs for them. Additionally, for every odd k, we present a procedure for constructing some of such graphs, based on the operations of adding terminal subgraphs and replacement of edges with subgraphs.
