Finding Light Spanners in Bounded Pathwidth Graphs [article]

Michelangelo Grigni, Hao-Hsiang Hung
2012 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we make some progress towards the conjecture that light spanners exist for every minor-closed graph family. In particular, we show that they exist for graphs with bounded pathwidth.  ...  If G is from certain minor-closed graph families (at least bounded genus graphs and apex graphs), then we know that light spanners exist.  ...  Bounded pathwidth graphs have light spanners, computable by a greedy algorithm. We prove this in Section 3.  ...

Light Spanners in Bounded Pathwidth Graphs [chapter]

Michelangelo Grigni, Hao-Hsiang Hung
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We have developed an efficient algorithm for light spanners in bounded pathwidth graphs, based on an intermediate data structure called monotone tree.  ...  In approximation algorithm design, light spanners has applications in graph-metric problems such as metric TSP (the traveling salesman problem).  ...  We have discussed the major difficulty in handling bounded treewidth graphs in [9] : we have no control over the MST topology inside of the bounded treewidth graphs, and a trimming might introduce too  ...

We also prove that the greedy spanner of a bounded pathwidth graph is light and discuss the possibility of extending our proof to bounded treewidth graphs.  ...  We take a further step toward proving this conjecture by showing that if the bounded treewidth graphs have light greedy spanners, then the conjecture is true.  ...  The greedy spanner for bounded pathwidth graphs is light Grigni and Hung proved that graphs of pathwidth pw have a (1 + )-spanner of lightness O(pw 3 / ) [10] .  ...

The bound on the number of edges is known to be asymptotically tight for certain small values of k, and for all k assuming Erdős' girth conjecture. In this paper we focus on the weight of a spanner.  ...  Light weight spanners were also found useful for various data gathering and dissemination tasks in overlay networks [BKR + 02, KV02], in wireless and sensor networks [SS10], for network design [MP98, SCRS01  ...  Currently, some of the known results are for planar graph [ADM + 95], bounded-genus graphs [Gri00] , unit disk graphs [KPX08] , and bounded pathwidth graphs [GH12] .  ...

A t-spanner of a weighted undirected graph G = (V, E), is a subgraph H such that dH (u, v) ≤ t · dG(u, v) for all u, v ∈ V .  ...  The sparseness of the spanner can be measured by its size (the number of edges) and weight (the sum of all edge weights), both being important measures of the spanner's quality -in this work we focus on  ...  Currently, some of the known results are for planar graph [ADM + 95], bounded-genus graphs [Gri00] , unit disk graphs [KPX08] , and bounded pathwidth graphs [GH12] .  ...

Minor-free graphs have light spanners [article]

Glencora Borradaile and Hung Le and Christian Wulff-Nilsen
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Our lightness bound is O(σ_H/ϵ^31/ϵ) where σ_H = |V(H)|√( |V(H)|) is the sparsity coefficient of H-minor-free graphs. That is, it has a practical dependency on the size of the minor H.  ...  We show that every H-minor-free graph has a light (1+ϵ)-spanner, resolving an open problem of Grigni and Sissokho and proving a conjecture of Grigni and Hung.  ...  Later Grigni and Hung [12] , in showing that graphs of bounded pathwidth have light spanners, conjectured that H-minor-free graphs also have light spanners; that is, that the dependence on n can be  ...
