Description/Abstract

Given an undirected and vertex weighted graph G, the Weighted Feedback Vertex Problem (WFVP) consists in finding a subset Fsubset of or equal toV of vertices of minimum weight such that each cycle in G contains at least one vertex in F. The WFVP on general graphs is known to be NP-hard. In this paper we introduce a new class of graphs, namely the diamond graphs, and give a linear time algorithm to solve WFVP on it.
