Fixed Parameter Polynomial Time Algorithms for Maximum Agreement and Compatible Supertrees

pdf-format:


Abstract

Consider a set of labels $L$ and a set of trees ${mathcal T} = {
{mathcal T}^{(1), {mathcal T}^{(2), ldots, {mathcal T}^{(k) $
where each tree ${mathcal T}^{(i)$ is distinctly leaf-labeled by
some subset of $L$. One fundamental problem is to find the biggest
tree (denoted as supertree) to represent $mathcal T}$ which
minimizes the disagreements with the trees in ${mathcal T}$ under
certain criteria. This problem finds applications in
phylogenetics, database, and data mining. In this paper, we focus
on two particular supertree problems, namely, the maximum agreement
supertree problem (MASP) and the maximum compatible supertree
problem (MCSP). These two problems are known to be NP-hard for $k
geq 3$. This paper gives the first polynomial time algorithms for
both MASP and MCSP when both $k$ and the maximum degree $D$ of the
trees are constant.
