We present a fixed parameter algorithm that constructively solves the
k-dominating set problem on graphs excluding one of the
K5 or K3,3 as a minor in time
O(36 √34 k nO(1)).
In fact, we present our algorithm for any H-minor-free graph where
H is a single-crossing graph (can be drawn on the plane with at most one
crossing) and obtain the algorithm for
graphs as a special case. As a consequence, we extend our results to
several other problems such as vertex cover, edge dominating set,
independent set, clique-transversal set, kernels in digraphs,
feedback vertex set and a series of vertex removal problems.
Our work generalizes and extends the recent result of exponential speedup
in designing fixed-parameter algorithms on planar
graphs due to Alber et al. to other (non-planar) classes of graphs.
