Parameter: book thickness

Definition:

A book embedding of a graph $G$ is an embedding of $G$ on a collection of half-planes (called pages) having the same line (called spine) as their boundary, such that the vertices all lie on the spine and there are no crossing edges. The book thickness of a graph $G$ is the smallest number of pages over all book embeddings of $G$.
