Abstract

We prove that the maximum degree Δn of a random series-parallel graph with n vertices satisfies Δn/lognc in probability, and Δn ~ c logn for a computable constant c > 0. The same kind of result holds for 2-connected series-parallel graphs, for outerplanar graphs, and for 2-connected outerplanar graphs.
