In this paper we consider the problem of on-line graph coloring. In an instance of on-line graph coloring, the nodes are presented one at a time. As each node is presented, its edges to previously presented nodes are also given. Each node must be assigned a color, different from the colors of its neighbors, before the next node is given. LetA(G) be the number of colors used by algorithmA on a graphG and letx(G) be the chromatic number ofG. The performance ratio of an on-line graph coloring… 
ONLINE COLORING CO-INTERVAL GRAPHS
TLDR
It is proved that for the class of general co-interval graphs no randomized algorithm has competitive ratio better than 3/2, and that no deterministic online algorithm for coloring unit co- Interval graphs can be better than3/2-competitive.
Online Coloring Co-interval Graphs ∗
TLDR
It is proved that for the class of general co-interval graphs no randomized algorithm has competitive ratio better than 3/2, and that no deterministic online algorithm for coloring unit co- Interval graphs can be better than3/2-competitive.
Conflict-free coloring
TLDR
For the problem of conlict-free coloring points with respect to a given set of intervals, an efficient algorithm is described that computes a coloring with at most twice the number of colors of an optimal coloring, and it is shown that there is a family of inputs that force the algorithm to use two times the number to use an optimal solution.
Lower bounds for on-line graph problems with application to on-line circuit and optical routing
TLDR
An Ω(nǫ) lower bound on the competitive ratio of randomized online algorithms for virtual circuit routing on general networks is obtained, in contrast to the known results for some specific networks.
On the First-Fit Chromatic Number of Graphs
TLDR
This paper studies the first-fit chromatic number of outerplanar and planar graphs as well as Cartesian products of graphs, and in particular it is given asymptotically tight results forouterplanar graphs.
Online graph coloring with bichromatic exchanges
TLDR
This work considers a variation of greedy algorithms in which the algorithm is allowed to make modifications to previously colored vertices by performing local bichromatic exchanges, and shows that such algorithms can be used to find an optimal coloring in the case of bipartite graphs, chordal graphs and outerplanar graphs.
Tight Bounds for Online Coloring of Basic Graph Classes
TLDR
For all of the above mentioned graph classes except bipartite graphs, the natural First Fit coloring algorithm achieves an optimal performance, up to constant factors, among deterministic and randomized online algorithms.
Randomized Algorithm for Conflict-Free Coloring of Graphs & Hypergraphs
TLDR
This work provides a framework for randomized conflict-free coloring (CF-coloring) any k-degenerate hypergraph and uses O(log n) colors with high probability, motivated by frequency assignment in wireless cellular networks.
Online conflict-free coloring for geometric hypergraphs
TLDR
An efficient randomized online algorithm is obtained for CF-coloring any k-degenerate hypergraph using O(log n) colors and O(n) recolorings and this bound is asymptotically optimal for any constant k.

On-line and first fit colorings of graphs
TLDR
An upper bound for the performance ratio of the first fit coloring on interval graphs is proved and it is shown that there are simple families resisting any on-line algorithm: no on- line algorithm can color all trees by a bounded number of colors.
A Dynamic location problem for graphs
TLDR
A new parameter of graphs is defined, called the window indexWX(G), that measures how large a “window” into the future is needed to solve every instance of the dynamic location problem on G optimally on-line.
The Linearity of First-Fit Coloring of Interval Graphs
TLDR
It is shown that First-Fit coloring requires at most $40\omega $ colors to color an interval graph with clique size $\omega$, and it follows that a polynomial time approximation algorithm for Dynamic Storage Allocation has a constant performance ratio of 80.
Register allocation and spilling via graph coloring

On the performance of on-line algorithms for partition problems
TLDR
The performance of the greedy algorithm and of on-line algorithms for partition problems in combinatorial optimization and the power of non-adaptive adversaries for proving lower bounds are considered.
Amortized efficiency of list update and paging rules
TLDR
This article shows that move-to-front is within a constant factor of optimum among a wide class of list maintenance rules, and analyzes the amortized complexity of LRU, showing that its efficiency differs from that of the off-line paging rule by a factor that depends on the size of fast memory.
Search problems in the decision tree model
TLDR
It is shown that the CNF search problem is complete for all the variants of decision trees and that the gaps between the nondeterministic, the randomized, and the deterministic complexities can be arbitrarily large for search problems.
Reduced instruction set computers
TLDR
Optimize compilers are used to compile programming languages down to instructions that are as unencumbered as microinstructions in a large virtual address space, and to make the instruction cycle time as fast as possible.
