N2 - We investigate a new width parameter, the fusion-width of a graph. It is a natural generalization of the tree-width, yet strong enough that not only graphs of bounded tree-width, but also graphs of bounded clique-width, trivially have bounded fusion-width. In particular, there is no exponential growth between tree-width and fusion-width, as is the case between tree-width and clique-width. The new parameter gives a good intuition about the relationship between tree-width and clique-width.
