Vertex Cover Problem Parameterized Above and Below Tight Bounds

By Gregory Gutin, Eun Jung Kim, Michael Lampis and Valia Mitsou


Abstract. We study the well-known Vertex Cover problem parameterized above and below tight bounds. We show that two of the parameterizations (both were suggested by Mahajan, Raman and Sikdar, J. Computer and System Sciences, 75(2):137–153, 2009) are fixed-parameter tractable and two other parameterizations are W[1]-hard (one of them is, in fact, W[2]-hard).
