We provide polynomial time data reduction rules for Connected Dominating Set in planar graphs and analyze these to obtain a linear kernel for the planar Connected Dominating Set problem. To obtain the desired kernel we introduce a method that we call reduce or refine. Our kernelization algorithm analyzes the input graph and either finds an appropriate reduction rule that can be applied, or zooms in on a region of the graph which is more amenable to reduction. We find this method of independent… CONTINUE READING
