"The Balanced Connected Subgraph Problem";
- 2019-02-16; in: "CALDAM 2019: Algorithms and Discrete Applied Mathematics",
The problem of computing induced subgraphs that satisfy some specified restrictions arises in various applications of graph algorithms and has been well studied. In this paper, we consider the following Open image in new window (shortly, Open image in new window ) problem. The input is a graph G=(V,E), with each vertex in the set V having an assigned color, " Open image in new window " or " Open image in new window ". We seek a maximum-cardinality subset V′⊆V of vertices that is Open image in new window (having exactly |V′|/2 red nodes and |V′|/2 blue nodes), such that the subgraph induced by the vertex set V′ in G is connected. We show that the BCS problem is NP-hard, even for bipartite graphs G (with red/blue color assignment not necessarily being a proper 2-coloring). Further, we consider this problem for various classes of the input graph G, including, e.g., planar graphs, chordal graphs, trees, split graphs, bipartite graphs with a proper red/blue 2-coloring, and graphs with diameter 2. For each of these classes either we prove NP-hardness or design a polynomial time algorithm.
