Abstract
We call a multigraph non-homotopic if it can be drawn in the plane in such a way that no two edges connecting the same pair of vertices can be continuously transformed into each other without passing through a vertex, and no loop can be shrunk to its end-vertex in the same way. It is easy to see that a non-homotopic multigraph on n>1 vertices can have arbitrarily many edges. We prove that the number of crossings between the edges of a non-homotopic multigraph with n vertices and m>4n edges is larger than cm2n for some constant c>0 , and that this bound is tight up to a polylogarithmic factor. We also show that the lower bound is not asymptotically sharp as n is fixed and m⟶∞ .
