## Polynomial-time approximation algorithms for the coloring problem in some cases

Journal of Combinatorial Optimization. 2017. Vol. 33. No. 3. P. 809-813.

We consider the coloring problem for hereditary graph classes, i.e. classes of simple unlabeled graphs closed under deletion of vertices. For the family of the hereditary classes of graphs defined by forbidden induced subgraphs with at most four vertices, there are three classes with an open complexity of the problem. For the problem and the open three cases, we present approximation polynomial-time algorithms with performance guarantees.

The task of complete complexity dichotomy is to clearly distinguish between easy and hard cases of a given problem on a family of subproblems. We consider this task for some optimization problems restricted to certain classes of graphs closed under deletion of vertices. A concept in the solution process is based on revealing the so-called ...

The notion of a tolerance of an element of a combinatorial optimization problem is often used for stability analysis of an

The quadratic programming problem is known to be NP-hard for Hessian matrices with only one negative eigenvalue, but it is tractable for convex instances. These facts yield to consider the number of negative eigenvalues as a complexity measure
of quadratic programs. We prove here that the clique problem is tractable for two variants of its Motzkin-Strauss ...

We study the computational complexity of the dominating set problem for hereditary graph classes, i.e., classes of simple unlabeled graphs closed under deletion of vertices. Every hereditary class can be defined by a set of its forbidden induced subgraphs. There are numerous open cases for the complexity of the problem even for hereditary classes with ...

We consider the quantifier-free languages, Bc and Bc°, obtained by augmenting the signature of Boolean algebras with a unary predicate representing, respectively, the property of being connected, and the property of having a connected interior. These languages are interpreted over the regular closed sets of Rn (n ≥ 2) and, additionally, over the regular closed ...

In this paper, the single-track railway scheduling problem with two stations and several segments of the track is considered. Two subsets of trains are given, where trains from the first subset go from the first station to the second station, and trains from the second subset go in the opposite direction. The speed of trains ...

The vertex colourability problem is to determine, for a given graph and a given natural k, whether it is possible to split the graph’s vertex set into at most k subsets, each of pairwise non-adjacent vertices, or not. A hereditary class is a set of simple graphs, closed under deletion of vertices. Any such a class can be ...

The notion of a boundary graph class was recently introduced for a classification of hereditary graph classes according to the complexity of a considered problem. Two concrete graph classes are known to be boundary for several graph problems. We formulate a criterion to determine whether these classes are boundary for a given graph problem or ...

The notion of a boundary class of graphs is a helpful tool for the computational complexity analysis of graph theory problems in the family of hereditary classes. Some general and specific features for families of boundary classes of graphs for the vertex k-colorability problem and its “limit” variant, the chromatic index problem, were studied by ...

We design temporal description logics (TDLs) suitable for reasoning about temporal conceptual data models and investigate their computational complexity. Our formalisms are based on DL-Lite logics with three types of concept inclusions (ranging from atomic concept inclusions and disjointness to the full Booleans), as well as cardinality constraints and role inclusions. The logics are interpreted ...
