Optimala och ärftligt optimala realiseringar av metriker (Swedish)

This PhD thesis, consisting of an introduction, four papers, and some supplementary results, studies the problem of finding an *optimal realization* of a given finite metric space: a weighted graph which preserves the metric's distances and has minimal total edge weight. This problem is known to be NP-hard, and solutions are not necessarily unique.

It has been conjectured that *extremally weighted* optimal realizations may be found as subgraphs of the *hereditarily optimal realization* Γ_{d}, a graph which in general has a higher total edge weight than the optimal realization but has the advantages of being unique, and possible to construct explicitly via the *tight span* of the metric.

In Paper I, we prove that the graph Γ_{d} is equivalent to the 1-skeleton of the tight span precisely when the metric considered is *totally split-decomposable*. For the subset of totally split-decomposable metrics known as *consistent* metrics this implies that Γ_{d} is isomorphic to the easily constructed *Buneman graph*.

In Paper II, we show that for any metric on at most five points, any optimal realization can be found as a subgraph of Γ_{d}.

In Paper III we provide a series of counterexamples; metrics for which there exist extremally weighted optimal realizations which are not subgraphs of Γ_{d}. However, for these examples there also exists at least one optimal realization which is a subgraph.

Finally, Paper IV examines a weakened conjecture suggested by the above counterexamples: can we always find some optimal realization as a subgraph in Γ_{d}? Defining *extremal* optimal realizations as those having the maximum possible number of shortest paths, we prove that any embedding of the vertices of an extremal optimal realization into Γ_{d} is injective. Moreover, we prove that this weakened conjecture holds for the subset of consistent metrics which have a 2-dimensional tight span
