Title: The Algorithmic Aspects of Uncrowded Hypergraphs
Language (ISO): en
Abstract: We consider the problem of finding deterministically a large independent set of guaranteed size in a hypergraph on n vertices and with m edges. With respect to the Turan bound, the quality of our solutions is for hypergraphs with not too many small cycles by a logarithmic factor in the input size better. The algorithms are fast; they often have a running time of O ( m ) + o ( n 3 ). Indeed, the denser the hypergraphs are the more close are the running times to the linear ones. This gives for the first time for some combinatorial problems algorithmic solutions with state-of-the-art quality, solutions of which so far only the existence was known. In some cases, the corresponding upper bounds match the lower bounds up to constant factors. The involved concepts are uncrowded hypergraphs.
