A cycle transversal (or feedback vertex set) of a graph G is a subset T ⊆ V (G) such that T ∩ V (C) ≠ ∅ for every cycle C of G. This work considers the problem of finding special cycle transversals in perfect graphs and cographs. We prove that finding a minimum cycle transversal T in a perfect graph G is NP-hard, even for bipartite graphs with maximum degree four. Since G−T is acyclic, this result implies that finding amaximum acyclic induced subgraph of a perfect graph is also NP-hard. Other… CONTINUE READING
