MOTIVATION Networks have been used to model many real-world phenomena to better understand the phenomena and to guide experiments in order to predict their behavior. Since incorrect models lead to incorrect predictions, it is vital to have as accurate a model as possible. As a result, new techniques and models for analyzing and modeling real-world networks(More)
A tree t-spanner T of a graph G is a spanning tree in which the distance between every pair of vertices is at most t times their distance in G. This notion is motivated by applications in communication networks, distributed systems, and network design. This paper studies graph theoretic, algorithmic and complexity issues about tree spanners. It is shown(More)
We present a linear time algorithm for unit interval graph recognition. The algorithm is simple and based on Breadth-First Search. It is also direct | it does not rst recognize the graph as an interval graph. Given a graph G, the algorithm produces an ordering of the vertices of the graph whenever G is a unit interval graph. This order corresponds to the(More)
A graph is an interval graph if it is the intersection graph of intervals on a line. Interval graphs are known to be the intersection of chordal graphs and asteroidal triple-free graphs, two families where the well-known Lexicographic Breadth First Search (LBFS) plays an important algorithmic and structural role. In this paper we show that interval graphs(More)
