When Can Graph Hyperbolicity be Computed in Linear Time?

Hyperbolicity is a distance-based measure of how close a given graph is to being a tree. Due to its relevance in modeling real-world networks, hyperbolicity has seen intensive research over the last years. Unfortunately, the best known algorithms used in practice for computing the hyperbolicity numb...
