Main Title: An FPT Algorithm for Directed Spanning k-Leaf
Author(s): Bonsma, Paul

Type: Research Paper
Abstract: An out-branching of a directed graph is a rooted spanning tree with all arcs directed outwards from the root. We consider the problem of deciding whether a given digraph D has an out-branching with at least k leaves (Directed Spanning k-Leaf). We prove that this problem is fixed parameter tractable, when k is chosen as the parameter. Previously this was only known for restricted classes of directed graphs. The main new ingredient in our approach is a lemma that shows that given a locally optimal out-branching of a directed graph in which every arc is part of at least one out-branching, either an out-branching with at least k leaves exists, or a path decomposition with width O(k3) can be found. This enables a dynamic programming based algorithm of running time 2O(k3logk)·nO(1), where n=|V(D)|
