We give an efficient local search algorithm that computes a good vertex coloring of a graph G. In order to better illustrate this local search method, we view local moves as selfish moves in a suitably defined game. In particular, given a graph G = (V, E) of n vertices and m edges, we define the graph coloring game Γ (G) as a strategic game where the set of players is the set of vertices and the players share the same action set, which is a set of n colors. The payoff that a vertex v receives… CONTINUE READING
