Algorithms for Maximum Independent Sets
  • J. Robson
  • Mathematics, Computer Science
  • J. Algorithms
  • 1 September 1986
TLDR
An algorithm is presented which finds (the size of) a maximum independent set of an n vertex graph in time O (2 0.276 n ) improving on a previous bound of O(2 n 3 ) . Expand

Hard Tiling Problems with Simple Tiles
TLDR
We show that the existence problem for tiling regions of the square lattice is NP-complete for general regions in the cubic lattice and for simply connected regions on the four-dimensional hypercubic lattice. Expand

An optimal bit complexity randomized distributed MIS algorithm
TLDR
We present a randomized distributed maximal independent set (MIS) algorithm for arbitrary graphs of size n that halts in time O(log n) with probability 1 − o(n−1), and only needs messages containing 1 bit. Expand

Deterministic Radio Broadcasting
TLDR
We consider broadcasting in radio networks: one node of the network knows a message that needs to be learned by all the remaining nodes. Expand

N by N Checkers is Exptime Complete
  • J. Robson
  • Mathematics, Computer Science
  • SIAM J. Comput.
  • 1 May 1984
TLDR
The game of Checkers can easily be generalized to be played on an N by N board and the complexity of deciding questions about positions regarded as a function of N is shown to be complete in exponential time. Expand

Analytic variations on quadtrees
TLDR
The analysis leads to a class of “full-history” divide-and-conquer recurrences. Expand
