Inapproximability of Vertex Cover and Independent Set in Bounded Degree Graphs
We study the inapproximability of Vertex Cover and Independent Set on degree d graphs. We prove that: • Vertex Cover is Unique Games-hard to approximate to within a factor 2−(...

Local PTAS for Independent Set and Vertex Cover in Location Aware Unit Disk Graphs
We present the first local approximation schemes for maximum independent set and minimum vertex cover in unit disk graphs. In the graph model we assume that each node knows its geo...

Vertex Cover in Graphs with Locally Few Colors
In [13], Erd˝os et al. defined the local chromatic number of a graph as the minimum number of colors that must appear within distance 1 of a vertex. For any ∆ ≥ 2, there are ...

Fast distributed approximation algorithms for vertex cover and set cover in anonymous networks
We present a distributed algorithm that finds a maximal edge packing in O(∆ + log∗ W) synchronous communication rounds in a weighted graph, independent of the number of nodes...

Induced Subgraphs of Bounded Degree and Bounded Treewidth
We prove that for all 0 ≤ t ≤ k and d ≥ 2k, every graph G with treewidth at most k has a ‘large’ induced subgraph H, where H has treewidth at most t and every vertex in ...
