Abstract

An undirected graph is said to be split if its vertex set can be partitioned into two sets such that the subgraph induced on one of them is a complete graph and the subgraph induced on the other is an independent set. We study the problem of deleting the minimum number of vertices or edges from a given input graph so that the resulting graph is split.We initiate a systematic study and give efficient fixed-parameter algorithms and polynomial sized kernels for the problem. More precisely,

  1. 1

    for Split Vertex Deletion, the problem of determining whether there are k vertices whose deletion results in a split graph, we give an \({\cal O}^*(2^k)\) algorithm improving on the previous best bound of \({\cal O}^*({2.32^k})\). We also give an \({\cal O}(k^3)\)-sized kernel for the problem.

     
  2. 2

    For Split Edge Deletion, the problem of determining whether there are k edges whose deletion results in a split graph, we give an \({\cal O}^*( 2^{ O(\sqrt{k}\log k) } )\) algorithm. We also prove the existence of an \({\cal O}(k^2)\) kernel.

     

In addition, we note that our algorithm for Split Edge Deletion  adds to the small number of subexponential parameterized algorithms not obtained through bidimensionality, and on general graphs.
