Let lct ( G ) be the minimum cardinality of a set of vertices that intersects every longest cycle of a 2-connected graph G. We show that lct ( G ) <= k - 1 if G is a partial k-tree and that lct ( G ) <= max [ 1 , omega ( G ) - 3 ] if G is chordal, where omega ( G ) is the cardinality of a maximum clique in G. Those results imply that all longest cycles intersect in 2-connected series-parallel graphs and in 3-trees. (AU)
