The subgraph homeomorphism problem for a fixed graph H is stated as follows: given a graph G, determine whether G has a subgraph homeomorphic to H, and obtain it. We study the parallel complexity of this problem for various pattern graphs H, and present fast NC algorithms for various versions of this problem. We also present an efficient NC algorithm to check if a given graph is outer-planar and to obtain its forbidden homeomorphs K4 or K2,3, if it is not.
