Abstract

Recently, new techniques have been introduced to speed up dynamic programming algorithms on tree decompositions for connectivity problems: the 'Cut and Count' method and a method called the rank-based approach, based on representative sets and Gaussian elimination. These methods respectively give randomised and deterministic algorithms that are single exponential in the treewidth, and polynomial, respectively linear in the number of vertices. In this paper, we adapt these methods to branch decompositions yielding algorithms, both randomised and deterministic, that are in many cases faster than when tree decompositions would be used. In particular, we obtain the currently fastest randomised algorithms for several problems on planar graphs. When the involved weights are O(n^{O(1)}), we obtain faster randomised algorithms on planar graphs for Steiner Tree, Connected Dominating Set, Feedback Vertex Set and TSP, and a faster deterministic algorithm for TSP. When considering planar graphs with arbitrary real weights, we obtain faster deterministic algorithms for all four mentioned problems.
