Exact and heuristic algorithms for Cograph Editing

  title={Exact and heuristic algorithms for Cograph Editing},
  author={W. Timothy J. White and Marcus Ludwig and Sebastian Bocker},
  journal={arXiv: Data Structures and Algorithms},
We present a dynamic programming algorithm for optimally solving the Cograph Editing problem on an $n$-vertex graph that runs in $O(3^n n)$ time and uses $O(2^n)$ space. In this problem, we are given a graph $G = (V, E)$ and the task is to find a smallest possible set $F \subseteq V \times V$ of vertex pairs such that $(V, E \bigtriangleup F)$ is a cograph (or $P_4$-free graph), where $\bigtriangleup$ represents the symmetric difference operator. We also describe a technique for speeding up the…

Merging Modules is equivalent to Editing P4's

It is shown here that editing the induced $P_4$s is equivalent to resolving prime modules by means of a suitable defined merge operation on the submodules.

Cograph editing: merging modules is equivalent to editing P 4 S

Summary: The modular decomposition of a graph G = ( V, E ) does not contain prime modules if and only if G is a cograph, that is, if no quadruple of vertices induces a simple connected path P 4 . The

Efficiency of a Good But Not Linear Set Union Algorithm

It is shown that, if t(m, n) is seen as the maximum time reqmred by a sequence of m > n FINDs and n -- 1 intermixed UNIONs, then kima(m), n is shown to be related to a functional inverse of Ackermann's functmn and as very slow-growing.

Phylogenomics with paralogs

It is demonstrated that the distribution of paralogs in large gene families contains in itself sufficient phylogenetic signal to infer fully resolved species phylogenies, and genome-wide data sets are sufficient to generate fully resolved phylogenetic trees, even in the presence of horizontal gene transfer.
