Abstract An assignment of unique integers to the vertices of a graph is called a linear layout. The bandwidth minimization problem (BANDWIDTH) is the following: Given a graph G = ( V , E ) and an integer k , determine whether there exists a linear layout of G such that the maximum difference between adjacent vertices is bounded by k . Interval graphs are the intersection graphs of a family of intervals of the real line. BANDWIDTH remains NP-complete even when restricted to special subclasses of… CONTINUE READING
