A fundamental graph problem is to recognize whether the vertex set of a graph can be bipartitioned into sets A and B such that G[A] and G[B] satisfy certain properties Pi_A and Pi_B, respectively. This problem is called (Pi_A,Pi_B)-Recognition. Famous examples include the recognition of bipartite, split, and unipolar graphs. We present efficient algorithms for many cases of (Pi_A,Pi_B)-Recognition, based on a technique which we dub inductive recognition. In particular, we give fixed-parameter algorithms for two NP-hard (Pi_A,Pi_B)-Recognition problems, Monopolar Recognition and 2-Subcoloring. We complement our algorithmic results with several hardness results for (Pi_A,Pi_B)-Recognition.

This talk is based on the paper "Parameterized Algorithms for Recognizing Monopolar and 2-Subcolorable Graphs" by Iyad Kanj, Christian Komusiewicz, Manuel Sorge, and Erik Jan van Leeuwen (, which appeared in SWAT 2016 and was selected for a contributed talk at HALG 2017.
