A C-coloured graph is a graph, that is possibly directed, where the edges are coloured with colours from the set C. Clique-width is a complexity measure for C-coloured graphs, for finite sets C. Rank-width is an equivalent complexity measure for undirected graphs and has good algorithmic and structural properties. It is in particular related to the(More)
Every binary word with at least four letters contains a square. A. Fraenkel and J. Simpson showed that three distinct squares are necessary and sufficient to construct an infinite binary word. We study the following complementary question: how many square occurrences must a binary word contain? We show that this quantity is, in the limit, a constant(More)
We show how to use the split decomposition to solve some NP-hard optimization problems on graphs. We give algorithms for clique problem and domination-type problems. Our main result is an algorithm to compute a coloration of a graph using its split decomposition. Finally we show that the clique-width of a graph is bounded if and only if the clique-width of(More)

In this paper we study harmonic functions of subordinate killed Brownian motion in a domain D: We first prove that, when the killed Brownian semigroup in D is intrinsic ultracontractive, all nonnegative harmonic functions of the subordinate killed Brownian motion in D are continuous and then we establish a Harnack inequality for these harmonic functions. We(More)
