(LaTeX) Abstract:
The pathwidth of a graph is a measure of how path-like the graph is.
Given a graph $G$ and an integer $k$, the problem of finding whether
there exist at most $k$ vertices in $G$ whose deletion results in
a graph of pathwidth at most one is \npc{}. We initiate the study
of the parameterized complexity of this problem, parameterized by
$k$. We show that the problem has a quartic vertex-kernel: We show
that, given an input instance $(G=(V,E),k);|V|=n$, we can construct,
in polynomial time, an instance $(G',k')$ such that (i) $(G,k)$
is a YES instance if and only if $(G',k')$ is a YES instance, (ii)
$G'$ has $\Oh(k^{4})$ vertices, and (iii) $k'\le k$. We also give
a fixed parameter tractable (FPT) algorithm for the problem that runs
in $\Oh(7^{k}k\cdot n^{2})$ time.
