Feedback vertex set on graphs of low cliquewidth

Abstract

The Feedback Vertex Set problem asks whether a graph contains q vertices meeting all its cycles. This is not a local property, in the sense that we cannot check if q vertices meet all cycles by looking only at their neighbors. Dynamic programming algorithms for problems based on non-local properties are usually more complicated. Here, given a graph G of cliquewidth cw and a cw-expression of G, we solve the Minimum Feedback Vertex Set problem in time $O(n^2 2^{O(cw \log cw)})$.

Our algorithm applies a non-standard dynamic programming on a so-called k-module decomposition of a graph, as defined by Rao [Disc. Math. 2008], which is easily derivable from a k-expression of the graph. The related notion of module-width of a graph is tightly linked to cliquewidth and we give an alternative equivalent
