as required.
\end{proof}
The proof that (generalizations of) graphs with bounded comparable box dimensions have sublinear separators in~
\cite
{
subconvex
}
is indirect; it is established that these graphs have polynomial coloring numbers, which in turn implies they have polynomial
expansion, which then gives sublinear separators using the algorithm of Plotkin, Rao, and Smith~
\cite
{
plotkin
}
.
The existence of sublinear separators is known to follow more directly from fractional treewidthfragility. Indeed, since
$
\text
{
Pr
}
[
v
\in
X
]
\le
1
/
k
$
,
there exists
$
X
\subseteq
V
(
G
)
$
such that
$
\tw
(
G

X
)
\le
f
(
k
)
$
and
$
X
\le
V
(
G
)

/
k
$
. The graph
$
G

X
$
has a balanced separator of size
at most
$
\tw
(
G

X
)+
1
$
, which combines with
$
X
$
to a balanced separator of size at most
$
V
(
G
)

/
k
+
f
(
k
)+
1
$
in
$
G
$
.
Optimizing the value of
$
k
$
(choosing it so that
$
V
(
G
)

/
k
=
f
(
k
)
$
), we obtain the following corollary of Theorem~
\ref
{
thmtwfrag
}
.
\begin{corollary}
For positive integers
$
t
$
,
$
s
$
, and
$
d
$
, every graph
$
G
$
with an
$
s
$
comparable envelope representation in
$
\mathbb
{
R
}^
d
$
of thickness at most
$
t
$
has a sublinear separator of size
$

t,s,d
}
\bigl
(
V
(
G

^{
\tfrac
{
d
}{
d
+

}}
\bigr
)
.
