We examine exact algorithms for the NP-hard Graph Bipartization problem. The task is, given a graph, to find a minimum set of vertices to delete to make it bipartite. Based on the "iterative compression" method introduced by Reed, Smith, and Vetta in 2004, we present new algorithms and experimental results. The worst-case time complexity is improved. Based on new structural insights, we give a simplified correctness proof. This also allows us to establish a heuristic improvement that indoi:10.1007/11427186_22 fatcat:qzxhojrswrf45ks4zntpoacnsm
