A Structural View on Parameterizing Problems: Distance from Triviality

  title={A Structural View on Parameterizing Problems: Distance from Triviality},
  author={Jiong Guo and Falk H{\"u}ffner and Rolf Niedermeier},
Based on a series of known and new examples, we propose the generalized setting of “distance from triviality” measurement as a reasonable and prospective way of determining useful structural problem parameters in analyzing computationally hard problems. The underlying idea is to consider tractable special cases of generally hard problems and to introduce parameters that measure the distance from these special cases. In this paper we present several case studies of distance from triviality… CONTINUE READING
