Revising Johnson's table for the 21st century

04/29/2021 ∙ by Celina M. H. de Figueiredo, et al. ∙ 0

What does it mean today to study a problem from a computational point of view? We focus on parameterized complexity and on Column 16 "Graph Restrictions and Their Effect" of D. S. Johnson's Ongoing guide, where several puzzles were proposed in a summary table with 30 graph classes as rows and 11 problems as columns. Several of the 330 entries remain unclassified into Polynomial or NP-complete after 35 years. We provide a full dichotomy for the Steiner Tree column by proving that the problem is NP-complete when restricted to Undirected Path graphs. We revise Johnson's summary table according to the granularity provided by the parameterized complexity for NP-complete problems.
