Abstract : We discuss two unrelated topics regarding Cops and Robbers, a well-known pursuit-evasion game played on a simple graph. First, we address a recent question of Breen et al. and prove the PSPACE-completeness of the cop throttling number, that is, the minimal possible sum of the number k of cops and the number capt(k) of moves that the robber can survive against k cops under the optimal play of both sides. Secondly, we revisit a teleporting version of the game due to Wagner; we disprove one of his conjectures and suggest a new related research problem.
Keywords : graph theory, cops and robbers
