SUMMARY:Eun Jung Kim (김은정)\, A Constant-factor Approximation for Weighted Bond Cover
DESCRIPTION:The Weighted $\mathcal F$-Vertex Deletion for a class $\mathcal F$ of graphs asks\, given a weighted graph $G$\, for a minimum weight vertex set $S$ such that $G-S\in\mathcal F$. The case when $\mathcal F$ is minor-closed and excludes some graph as a minor has received particular attention but a constant-factor approximation remained elusive for Weighted $\mathcal F$-Vertex Deletion. Only three cases of minor-closed $\mathcal F$ are known to admit constant-factor approximations\, namely Vertex Cover\, Feedback Vertex Set and Diamond Hitting Set. \nWe study the problem for the class $\mathcal F$ of $\theta_c$-minor-free graphs\, under the equivalent setting of the Weighted c-Bond Cover\, and present a constant-factor approximation algorithm using the primal-dual method. For this\, we leverage a structure theorem implicit in [Joret et al.\, SIDMA’14] which states the following: any graph $G$ containing a $\theta_c$-minor-model either contains a large two-terminal protrusion\, or contains a constant-size $\theta_c$-minor-model\, or a collection of pairwise disjoint constant-sized connected sets that can be contracted simultaneously to yield a dense graph. In the first case\, we tame the graph by replacing the protrusion with a special-purpose weighted gadget. For the second and third case\, we provide a weighting scheme which guarantees a local approximation ratio. Besides making an important step in the quest of (dis)proving a constant-factor approximation for Weighted $\mathcal F$-Vertex Deletion\, our result may be useful as a template for algorithms for other minor-closed families. \nThis is joint work with Euiwoong Lee and Dimitrios M. Thilikos.
