In this paper, we prove that the harmonious coloring problem is NP-complete for connected interval and permutation graphs. Given a simple graph G, a harmonious coloring of G is a proper vertex coloring such that each pair of colors appears together on at most one edge. The harmonious chromatic number is the least integer k for which G admits a harmonious(More)
We consider a variant of the path cover problem, namely, the k-fixed-endpoint path cover problem, or kPC for short, on interval graphs. Given a graph G and a subset T of k vertices of V (G), a k-fixed-endpoint path cover of G with respect to T is a set of vertex-disjoint paths P that covers the vertices of G such that the k vertices of T are all endpoints(More)
Extending previous NP-completeness results for the harmonious coloring problem and the pair-complete coloring problem on trees, bipartite graphs and cographs, we prove that these problems are also NP-complete on connected bipartite permutation graphs. We also study the k-path partition problem and, motivated by a recent work of Steiner [G. Steiner, On the(More)

Nakano et al. in [20] presented a time-and work-optimal algorithm for finding the smallest number of vertex-disjoint paths that cover the vertices of a cograph and left open the problem of applying their technique into other classes of graphs. Motivated by this issue we generalize their technique and apply it to the class of P 4-sparse graphs, which forms a(More)
This paper describes efficient data structures, namely the <i>Indexed P-tree, Block P-tree, and Indexed-Block P-tree</i> (or <i>IP</i>-tree, <i>BP</i>-tree, and <i>IBP</i>-tree, respectively, for short), for maintaining future events in a general purpose discrete event simulation system, and studies the performance of their event set algorithms under the(More)
