Modular Counting of Subgraphs: Matchings, Matching-Splittable Graphs, and Paths

pdf-format:


Abstract

We systematically investigate the complexity of counting subgraph patterns modulo fixed integers. For example, it is known that the parity of the number of k-matchings can be determined in polynomial time by a simple reduction to the determinant. We generalize this to an n^{f(t,s)}-time algorithm to compute modulo 2^t the number of subgraph occurrences of patterns that are s vertices away from being matchings. This shows that the known polynomial-time cases of subgraph detection (Jansen and Marx, SODA 2015) carry over into the setting of counting modulo 2^t. Complementing our algorithm, we also give a simple and self-contained proof that counting k-matchings modulo odd integers q is {Mod}_q W[1]-complete and prove that counting k-paths modulo 2 is ⊕W[1]-complete, answering an open question by Björklund, Dell, and Husfeldt (ICALP 2015).
