Consider an n-vertex planar graph G. The depth of an embedding Γ of G is the maximum distance of its internal faces from the external one. Several researchers pointed out that the quality of a planar embedding can be measured in terms of its depth. We present an O(n 4)-time algorithm for computing an embedding of G with minimum depth. This bound improves on the best previous bound by an O(nlog n) factor. As a side effect, our algorithm improves the bounds of several algorithms that require the computation of a minimum-depth embedding.
