The coloring problem is studied in the paper for graph classes deﬁned by two small forbidden induced subgraphs. We prove some suﬃcient conditions for eﬀective solvability of the problem in such classes. As their corollary we determine the computational complexity for all sets of two connected forbidden induced subgraphs with at most ﬁve vertices except 13 explicitly enumerated cases.

The complexity of the coloring problem is known for all hereditary classes defined by two connected 5-vertex forbidden induced subgraphs except 13 cases. We update this result by proving polynomial-time solvability of the problem for two of the mentioned 13 classes. ...

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 ...

We completely determine the complexity status of the vertex 3-colorability problem for the problem restricted to all hereditary classes defined by at most 3 forbidden induced subgraphs each on at most 5 vertices.

We show that the chromatic number of {P_5,K_p-e}-free graphs can be computed in polynomial time for each fixed p.

We study the vertex coloring problem in classes of graphs defined by finitely many forbidden induced subgraphs. Of our special interest are the classes defined by forbidden induced subgraphs with at most 4 vertices. For all but three classes in this family we show either NP-completeness or polynomial-time solvability of the problem. For the ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 edge coloring problem for a graph is to minimize the number of colors that are sufficient to color all edges of the graph so that all adjacent edges receive distinct colors. The computational complexity of the problem is known for all graph classes defined by forbidden subgraphs with at most 6 edges. We improve ...

The notion of a tolerance of an element of a combinatorial optimization problem is often used for stability analysis of an optimal solution and it is a base for design branch-and-bound algorithms solving such problems.

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 ...

Weighted independent domination is an NP-hard graph problem, which remains computationally intractable in many restricted graph classes. In particular, the problem is NP-hard in the classes of sat-graphs and chordal graphs. We strengthen these results by showing that the problem is NP-hard in a proper subclass of the intersection of sat-graphs and chordal graphs. On ...

Two-stage superposition choice procedures, which sequentially apply two choice procedures so that the result of the first choice procedure is the input for the second choice procedure, are studied. We define which of them satisfy given normative conditions, showing how a final choice is changed due to the changes of preferences or a set of ...

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.

This paper investigates the computational complexity of deciding if a given finite idempotent algebra has a ternary term operation m that satisfies the minority equations m(y,x,x)≈m(x,y,x)≈m(x,x,y)≈y . We show that a common polynomial-time approach to testing for this type of condition will not work in this case and that this decision problem lies in the class NP. ...

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 ...

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 ...
