Publications of Pinar Heggernes


My publications on various topics can be reached using the following links. Although I try to group my work under these topics, some papers fit into several categories, but are listed only in one.
Algorithms and combinatorial results for graph classes
These results mainly concern solving graph problems that are NP-hard in general, on graphs with certain structure. Tractability is obtaied via polynomial-time or fixed parameter tractable algorithms. In this category are also algorithms for recognizing graphs with certain structure, and combinatorial results like characterizations of graph classes or other structural properties.

Graph modification problems
These problems concern modifying a given arbitrary graph by adding, removing, or contracting edges, or removing vertices, to obtain certain properties, typically membership in a desired graph class.

Miscellaneous
These results concern polynomial-time, exact exponential time or fixed parameter tractable algorithms for general input. The studied problems are decompositions, partitioning, and ordering. Some of my old results on sparse matrices are also here.
