Iterative Compression and Exact Algorithms


Iterative Compression has recently led to a number of breakthroughs in parameterized complexity. Here, we show that the technique can also be useful in the design of exact exponential time algorithms to solve NP-hard problems. We exemplify our findings with algorithms for the Maximum Independent Set problem, a parameterized and a counting version of d-Hitting Set and the Maximum Induced Cluster Subgraph problem.
