ABSTRACT
<p><b>Abstract</b>—We present an asynchronous distributed algorithm to determine an ear decomposition of an arbitrary, connected, bi-directional network containing <tmath>$n$</tmath>-nodes and <tmath>$m$</tmath>-links which uses <tmath>$O(m)$</tmath> messages and which can be completed in <tmath>$O(n)$</tmath> time. Using the ear decomposition, we obtain the following results for a distributed network: 1) The distributed ear decomposition algorithm can be used to test biconnectivity, determine biconnected components, find cutpoints and bridges using <tmath>$O(m)$</tmath> messages in <tmath>$O(n)$</tmath> time. 2) The distributed ear decomposition algorithm can be used to test if a biconnected network is outerplanar using <tmath>$O(n)$</tmath> messages in <tmath>$O(n)$</tmath> time, and if the network is outerplanar, the embedding is also given using the same message and time complexity.</p>
