PACE Solver Description: Tree Depth with FlowCutter

LIPIcs-IPEC-2020-32.pdf (0.3 MB)


We describe the FlowCutter submission to the PACE 2020 heuristic tree-depth challenge. The task of the challenge consists of computing an elimination tree of small height for a given graph. At its core our submission uses a nested dissection approach, with FlowCutter as graph bisection algorithm.
