On the treewidth and related parameters of random geometric graphs

Dieter Mitsche & Guillem Perarnau
We give asymptotically exact values for the treewidth tw(G) of a random geometric graph G(n,r) in [0,sqrt(n)]^2. More precisely, we show that there exists some c_1 > 0, such that for any constant 0 < r < c_1, tw(G)=Theta(log(n)/loglog(n)), and also, there exists some c_2 > c_1, such that for any r=r(n)> c_2, tw(G)=Theta(r sqrt(n)). Our proofs show that for the corresponding values of r the same asymptotic bounds also hold for the pathwidth and...
