Trapezoid Graphs and Generalizations, Geometry and Algorithms
Trapezoid graphs are a class of cocomparability graphs containing interval graphs and permutation graphs as subclasses. They were introduced by Dagan, Golumbic and Pinter DGP]. They propose an O(n2) algorithm for chromatic number and a less e cient algorithm for maximum clique on trapezoid graphs. Based on a geometric representation of trapezoid graphs by boxes in the plane we design optimal, i.e., O(nlogn), algorithms for chromatic number, weighted independent set, clique cover and maximum weighted clique on such graphs. We also propose generalizations of trapezoid graphs called k-trapezoid graphs. The ideas behind the clique cover and weighted independent set algorithms for trapezoid graphs carry over to higher dimensions. This leads to O(nlogk?1 n) algorithms for k-trapezoid graphs. We also propose a new class of graphs called circle trapezoid graphs. This class contains trapezoid graphs, circle graphs and circular-arc graphs as subclasses. We show that clique and independent set p...
