Using critical sets to solve the maximum independent set problem Academic Article uri icon


  • A method that utilizes the polynomially solvable critical independent set problem for solving the maximum independent set problem on graphs with a nonempty critical independent set is developed. The effectiveness of the proposed approach on large graphs with large independence number is demonstrated through extensive numerical experiments. 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
