Unformatted text preview: O ( n + m ) to decide i the nodes o the graph can partition into two sets N 1 and N 2 ( N = N 1 N 2 and N 1 N 2 = ) so that every red edge connects a node rom N 1 with a node o N 2 , and every black edge connects two nodes within the same set (both nodes in N 1 or both nodes in N 2 ). 3). Given an undirected graph G = ( N,E ) a vertex cover C is a subset o the nodes C N such that or each edge ( i,j ) E either i C or j C or both. (a). Let L be the set o leaves in a DFS tree o G . (recall, a lea is a node with no children). Prove that C = N \ L is a vertex cover. This result is used to show that one can approximate a vertex cover with a set that is at most twice the size o the optimal size o a set cover. (You need not show this.) (b). Now let L be the set o leaves in a BFS tree o G . Give an example in which C = N \ L is not a vertex cover....
