# Dynamic monopolies for interval graphs with bounded thresholds

For a graph G and an integer-valued threshold function τ on its vertex set, a dynamic monopoly is a set of vertices of G such that iteratively adding to it vertices u of G that have at least τ(u) neighbors in it eventually yields the vertex set of G. We show that the problem of finding a dynamic monopoly of minimum order can be solved in polynomial time for interval graphs with bounded threshold functions, but is NP-hard for chordal graphs allowing unbounded threshold functions.
