Definitions

In graph theory, a circle graph is a graph whose vertices can be associated with chords of a circle such that two vertices are adjacent if and only if the corresponding chords in the circle intersect.
gives an $\{mathcal\; O(n^2)\}$ recognition algorithm for circle graphs that also computes a circle model of the input graph if it is a circle graph.
## Algorithmic complexity

A number of problems that are NP-complete on general graphs have polynomial time algorithms when restricted to circle graphs. These include the following:## Relation to other graph classes

### Equivalent classes

A graph is a circle graph if and only if it is an interval overlap graph.
### Superclasses

### Subclasses

- A minimum fill-in can be found in $\{mathcal\; O(n^3)\}$ time.

However, there are also problems that remain NP-complete when restricted to circle graphs:

- Minimum dominating set, minimum connected dominating set, and minimum total dominating set are all NP-complete.

- String graphs, a broader class of intersection graphs, includes circle graphs as a special case
