Exact algorithms for MINIMUM DOMINATING SET

Randerath, Bert and Schiermeyer, Ingo (2004) Exact algorithms for MINIMUM DOMINATING SET.
Technical Report , 8 p.


We design exact algorithms for several NP-complete graph-theoretic problems. The term exact algorithm is a shorthand for a fast exponential time algorithm. Our main result states that a minimum dominating set in a graph of order n can be found in time O(1.8899^n). The list of considered problems includes MINIMUM DOMINATING SET, 3-COLOURABILITY, MINIMUM CONNECTED DOMINATING SET (~MAXIMUM LEAF SPANNING TREE), MINIMUM EDGE DOMINATING SET, MINIMUM INDEPENDENT DOMINATING SET and MINIMUM MAXIMAL MATCHING.
