Fixed-parameter tractable time The following O(.) expressions represent the worst-case running times of different algorithms, where n is a measure of the input size and p, q and r are parameters (you may assume that p, q, r = n). Which of the following running times are fixed-parameter tractable (fpt) running times? Give the smallest possible parameter set for which the running times are fpt (if one exists) and explain your answer. [4 × 3 = 12 points] (a) O(p q + rn2 ) Answer: This is a fpt running time. The smallest parameter set for which the running times are fpt is ? = {q}. When p and q are really small compared to n, in the worst case the runtime would be O(n 3 ) (when r = n), and hence it’s polynomial time. But for large values of q, the runtime is O(p q ) and this runtime can be represented in the form of f(?).poly(n). And for small values of q, the runtime would still be polynomial. Hence, the parameters responsible for intractability is ? = {q}. (b) O(r pn 3 q!) Answer: This is also fpt running time and the smallest parameter set is ? = {q, p}. In this case also the runtime is polynomial in n. But for large values of p or q, the runtime would be exponential. This can be also be represented in the form of f(?).poly(n), with poly(n) = n 3 and f(?) = r p q!. Hence, the parameters responsible for intractability is ? = {q, p}. (d) O(( p q ) 45 rn) Answer: This is also ftp running time and the smallest parameter set is ? = {r}. In the worst case the value of p q = n when p = n and q = 1. And, even in this worst case scenario, if r is small, the runtime would be O(n 2 ) which is polynomial. But if the value of r is huge, it would result in an exponential runtime and we can represent the runtime in the form of f(?).poly(n), with f(?) = 5r and poly(n) = p q 4 n. Hence, the parameters responsible for intractability is ? = { Document Preview:
