Roussel and Rubio proved a lemma which is essential in the proof of the Strong Perfect Graph Theorem. We give a new short proof of the main case of this lemma. In this note, we also give a short proof of Hayward’s decomposition theorem for weakly chordal graphs, relying on a Roussel–Rubio-type lemma. We recall how Roussel–Rubio-type lemmas yield very short proofs of the existence of even pairs in weakly chordal graphs and Meyniel graphs.
