    • Largest chordal and interval subgraphs faster than 2n 

      Bliznets, Ivan; Fomin, Fedor; Pilipczuk, Michal Pawel; Villanger, Yngve (Springer, 2015-08-22)
      We prove that in a graph with n vertices, induced chordal and interval subgraphs with the maximum number of vertices can be found in time O(2λn) for some λ< 1. These are the first algorithms breaking the trivial 2nnO(1) ...

    • Exact algorithms for MAX-2SAT and MAX-3SAT via multidimensional matrix multiplication 

      Petkevich, Yevgheni (The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
      In this thesis it is showed how an $O(n^{4-\epsilon})$ algorithm for the cube multiplication problem (that is defined in the thesis) would imply a faster than naive $O^{*}(2^{n(1-\frac{\epsilon}{4})})$ algorithm for the ...
