Measure and conquer: a simple O(20.288n) independent set algorithm


For more than 30 years Davis-Putnam-style exponential-time backtracking algorithms have been the most common tools used for finding exact solutions of NP-hard problems. Despite of that, the way to analyze such recursive algorithms is still far from producing tight worst case running time bounds.The "Measure and Conquer" approach is one of the recent… (More)
