On the induced matching problem in hamiltonian bipartite graphs

On the induced matching problem in hamiltonian bipartite graphs AbstractIn this paper, we study the parameterized complexityof the induced matching problem in hamiltonian bipartite graphs and the inapproximability ofthe maximum induced matching problem in hamiltonian bipartite graphs.We show that, given a hamiltonian bipartite graph,the induced matching problem is W[1]-hard and cannot be solved in time no⁢(k){n^{o(\sqrt{k})}},where n is the number of vertices in the graph, unless the 3SATproblem can be solved in subexponential time. In addition,we show that unless NP=P{\operatorname{NP}=\operatorname{P}}, a maximum induced matching in a hamiltonian bipartite graph cannot be approximated within a ratio of n1/4-ϵ{n^{1/4-\epsilon}},where n is the number of vertices in the graph. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Georgian Mathematical Journal de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractIn this paper, we study the parameterized complexityof the induced matching problem in hamiltonian bipartite graphs and the inapproximability ofthe maximum induced matching problem in hamiltonian bipartite graphs.We show that, given a hamiltonian bipartite graph,the induced matching problem is W[1]-hard and cannot be solved in time no⁢(k){n^{o(\sqrt{k})}},where n is the number of vertices in the graph, unless the 3SATproblem can be solved in subexponential time. In addition,we show that unless NP=P{\operatorname{NP}=\operatorname{P}}, a maximum induced matching in a hamiltonian bipartite graph cannot be approximated within a ratio of n1/4-ϵ{n^{1/4-\epsilon}},where n is the number of vertices in the graph.
