On the span in channel assignment problems: bounds, computing and counting

Colin McDiarmid
2003 Discrete Mathematics  
The least t for which there is a feasible assignment is the span of the problem. We ÿrst derive two bounds on the span, an upper bound (from a sequential assignment method) and a lower bound.  ...  The channel assignment problem involves assigning radio channels to transmitters, using a small span of channels but without causing excessive interference.  ...  Acknowledgements I am grateful to the referees for detailed comments.  ...

Fixed parameter complexity of distance constrained labeling and uniform channel assignment problems [article]

Jiří Fiala and Tomáš Gavenčiak and Dušan Knop and Martin Koutecký and Jan Kratochvíl
2015 arXiv   pre-print
Finally, we show that the uniform variant of the Channel Assignment problem becomes NP-complete when generalized to graphs of bounded clique width.  ...  The same consequence applies on Channel Assignment when the maximum weight is additionally included among the parameters.  ...  Only few partial results are known [19] , among others that the Channel Assignment is polynomially solvable on graphs of bounded tree width if the span λ is bounded by a constant.  ...

The Complexity of Design Automation Problems [chapter]

Sartaj Sahni, Atul Bhatt, Raghunath Raghavan
1988 Handbook of Advanced Semiconductor Technology and Computer Systems  
Emphasis is on problems involving the physical implementation and testing stages of the design process. Section 2 contains a brief description, in general terms, of the DA problems considered.  ...  To date, most of the effort in DA has concentrated on the following stages of the design process: physical implementation of the logic design, and testing.  ...  Rather, asymptotic bounds on the step count are obtained. Asymptotic analysis uses the notation Ο, Ω, Θ and o. These are defined below.  ...

The Orphan Problem in ZigBee Wireless Networks

Meng-Shiuan Pan, Chia-Hung Tsai, Yu-Chee Tseng
2009 IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing  
In this paper, we show that the orphan problem can be divided into two subproblems: the bounded-degree-and-depth tree formation (BDDTF) problem and the end-device maximum matching (EDMM) problem.  ...  This assignment is easy to implement, but it restricts the number of children of a device and the depth of the network.  ...  Several works have investigated the bounded-degree spanning tree problem.  ...

Counting-Based Search: Branching Heuristics for Constraint Satisfaction Problems

G. Pesant, C. Quimper, A. Zanarini
2012 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
This paper concentrates on one family of candidates: counting-based search.  ...  Whereas most generic search heuristics in constraint programming rely on local information at the level of the individual variable, our search heuristics are based on more global information at the constraint  ...  We wish to thank Tyrel Russell who participated in the implementation and experimentation work.  ...

Lower Bounds for the Bandwidth Problem [article]

2021 arXiv   pre-print
This work focuses on investigating novel approaches to obtain lower bounds for the bandwidth problem. In particular, we use vertex partitions to bound the bandwidth of a graph.  ...  Our approach contains prior approaches for bounding the bandwidth as special cases. By varying sizes of partitions, we achieve a trade-off between quality of bounds and efficiency of computing them.  ...  [9] proposed two lower bounds based on SDP relaxations of the resulting Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP).  ...
