Let F be a finite set of graphs. In the F-DELETION problem, we are given an n-vertex graph G and an integer k as input, and asked whether at most k vertices can be deleted from G such that the resulting graph does not contain a graph from F as a minor. F-DELETION is a generic problem and by selecting different sets of forbidden minors F, one can obtain various fundamental problems such as VERTEX COVER, FEEDBACK VERTEX SET or TREEWIDTH η-DELETION. In this paper we obtain a number of generic… CONTINUE READING
