## Abstract

Graph drawing deals with the design and implementation of algorithms for generating automatic layouts of graphs that can be read and understood easily. A good drawing should reveal the structure of the given graph. With applications in business process modelling, software (re-)engineering, and data base design, the field of graph drawing is becoming increasingly important. We discuss recent analytic and algorithmic developments in designing so-called topology-shape-metrics approaches for automatic graph drawing and examine inhowmuch exact optimization helps in producing good layouts. This article is the written version of an invited talk that Petra Mutzel presented on 12 October 2001 at the Padbergfest organized by ZIB Berlin on the occasion of Manfred Padberg's 60th birthday.
