Refined algorithms for hitting many intervals
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2017
Within a study of scheduling problems with gaps, Chrobak et al. (CIAC 2015) have shown how to find k points on the line that hit a maximum number of intervals, in a given family of n intervals, The problem is equivalent to finding k cliques
in an interval graph that cover a maximum number of distinct vertices. We give refined algorithms that run faster if the interval graph of the family is sparse.
