Abstract: In matching theory, barrier sets (also known as Tutte sets) have been studied extensively due to their connection to maximum matchings in a graph. For a root θ of the matching polynomial, we define θ-barrier and θ-extreme sets. We prove a generalized BergeTutte formula and give a characterization for the set of all θ-special vertices in a graph. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
