Fast Distributed Approximations in Planar Graphs

  title={Fast Distributed Approximations in Planar Graphs},
  author={Andrzej Czygrinow and Michal Hanckowiak and Wojciech Wawrzyniak},
We give deterministic distributed algorithms that given δ > 0 find in a planar graph G, (1 ± δ)-approximations of a maximum independent set, a maximum matching, and a minimum dominating set. The algorithms run in O(log∗ |G|) rounds. In addition, we prove that no faster deterministic approximation is possible and show that if randomization is allowed it is possible to beat the lower bound for deterministic algorithms.
