### questions on implications Babais quasi P time graph isomorphism result

Babai has reputedly repaired his proof of graph isomorphism in quasipolynomial time.[1] the proof hinges crucially on Johnson graphs. based on the proof, does this mean now that if Johnson ...

### Longest path from every vertex in a tournament

I have a tournament (directed complete graph) with $V$ vertices. For every vertex I want to find the longest path starting in it (so the longest path starting in the first vertex, longest path ...

### Fastest Algorithm for the Minimum Edge Covering Problem

Given an undirected weighted graph, G, where all the weights are non-zero positive numbers, my algorithm must produce a sub-graph G' that satisfies the following constraints: G' must include all the ...

### Finding a graph that minimizes the number of nodes for a given number of paths

There is a problem that is of great interest for communications and optics, but I do not know if there is an easy solution of it. We are looking for an oriented graph that goes from a node A (starting ...

### Detecting bridges in Hypergraph S-t Reachability

Is there a fast algorithm to detect possible bridge arcs in hyperpaths from set $S$ of nodes to node $t$ in a hypergraph $G$. That is, given a hypergraph $G$, source nodes $S$, and target node $t$, ...

### Dichotomy of the spectra of directed graphs

Compared to spectra of undirected graphs, which correspond to symmetric matrices, the spectra of directed graphs is not very well known: It is known that a directed graph $G = (V,E)$ has an adjacency ...

### Concentration Bounds for functions of matrices

This is a question about properties of large directed graphs which are preserved when we randomly sample edges. Imagine I have an infinite sequence of positively weighted directed graphs. The ...

### Are there any results on the following “generalized matching” problems?

Given a graph $G = (V, E)$, one can view a matching $M$ on the graph as a partition of $V$ into vertex sets $S_{i, j}$ for $j \in \{1, 2\}$, where each $S_{i, j}$ induces a subgraph in $G$ isomorphic ...

### Reduction from independent set in hypergraphs to independent set in graphs

Let me introduce my notations. IS-H : Input : an hypergraph $G=(V,H)$, an integer $k$ Question : is there a (weak) independent set of size $k$, i.e. a set $S \subseteq V$ such that $|S| \ge k$ and ...

### algorithms for a large submatrix / general factor / quasi-biclique problem?

Given a sparse 0/1 matrix $X$, too large to fit in memory, with $m$ rows and $n$ columns, I'm looking for an algorithm for finding a submatrix (when one exists) with maximum number of rows such that ...

### Cluster Edge Deletion on 2-trees

Definitions: Cluster Edge Deletion problem is a graph modification problem, in which we want to remove the minimum number of edges such that the resulting graph does not contain a $P_3$ as an induced ...

### Efficient update of reachable set of a node in a digraph

Given a digraph $G = (V, E)$ and a set of vertices $S$, which does not change over the whole process, the goal is to compute the set of vertices, $R_{reach}$, reachable from $S$ and the set of nodes , ...

### Path finding on graph with state dependent edge costs

I'm looking for a version of path planning that is able to find paths in a graph where edge costs depend on the state of the moving entity. In such cases, it is required to also consider trade-offs, i....

### Efficient algorithm for testing planarity of the union of two planar graphs

Let $G_1 = (V,E_1)$ and $G_2 = (V,E_2)$ both be planar graphs. Is there an efficient algorithm to check whether the union $G = (V,E_1\cup E_2)$ is planar? That is, an algorithm more efficient than ...

### Graph planarity testing via adjacency matrix

I have looked at several efficient graph planarity algorithms which rely on computing and traversing DFS trees (that add one vertex/edge/path at a time). I am looking for graph planarity algorithms ...

### On bandwidth of graphs

I am trying to find references on algorithms for graphs of bounded bandwidth, in the same way as it is done with treewidth for instance. I could only find research related to computing the bandwidth, ...

### Graph Isomorphism of Strongly Regular Graph with fixed parameter

$G, H$ are strongly regular graphs with parameter $(n, r, \lambda, \mu)$ where $\lambda$ is constant. Here, $n$ is the number of total vertices. Each graph is $r$ regular. Every two adjacent ...

### What is the best known FPT result for 3-hitting set?

My research problem involves solving a special instance of the 3-Hitting Set problem, and I was wondering whether my result is actually significant (i.e. if it is better than the best known result for ...
### Max common sub forest on $k$ graphs
Not sure how to phrase this really, but here goes. Suppose you are given $k$ simple graphs, each having exactly $m$ edges. The edges in each graph are labeled from 1 to $m$. The problem is to find ...
