English abstract:
We extend the notion of a strong backdoor from the CSP setting
to the Valued CSP setting (VCSP, for short). This provides a means
for augmenting a class of tractable VCSP instances to instances that are
outside the class but of small distance to the class, where the distance is
measured in terms of the size of a smallest backdoor. We establish that
VCSP is fixed-parameter tractable when parameterized by the size of a
smallest backdoor into every tractable class of VCSP instances characterized
by a (possibly infinite) tractable valued constraint language of finite
arity and finite domain.We further extend this fixed-parameter tractability
result to so-called "scattered classes" of VCSP instances where each
connected component may belong to a different tractable class.
