Alex1290 Posted April 2, 2018 Share Posted April 2, 2018 Hello all. Recently I have read the article: 'A. Agrawa, D. Lokshtanov, S. Saurabh and M. Zehavi. Split Contraction: The Untold Story'. I am interested in the theorem from the article. The theorem statement can be stated as: «SRBPC parameterized by the number of parts in R is W[1]-hard». I did not understand what is Split Contraction, SRBPC, Perfect Code and W[1]-hard. Could you please explain it easier for me? And I need explanation the proof of the theorem. As I understood, the theorem proofs through some Lemmas. And I ask you to explain for me these lemmas easier. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
