The complexity of this phase is determinatedby the number of hidden nodes inserted. The best previously known upper bound for this number is O(max{|V|³, |E|²}). This paper establishes a relation between both partial results and gives upper bounds for many classes of graphs. This is archived by constructing a worst-case example for every legal configuration C=(h,n,m) of the input hierarchy for the simplification phase. These results provide further insight into the worst-case runtime and space complexity of Sugiyama's algorithm. Possible applications include their use as feasibility criteria, based on simpy derived quantitative information on the graph.
