On Extracting Maximum Stable Sets in Perfect Graphs Using Lovasz’s Theta Function

We study the maximum stable set problem. For a given graph, we establish several transformations among feasible solutions of different formulations of Lov{\’a}sz’s theta function. We propose reductions from feasible solutions corresponding to a graph to those corresponding to its subgraphs. We develop an efficient, polynomial-time algorithm to extract a maximum stable set in a … Read more
