Diverse Pairs of Matchings

LIPIcs-ISAAC-2020-26.pdf (0.6 MB)


We initiate the study of the Diverse Pair of (Maximum/ Perfect) Matchings problems which given a graph G and an integer k, ask whether G has two (maximum/perfect) matchings whose symmetric difference is at least k. Diverse Pair of Matchings (asking for two not necessarily maximum or perfect matchings) is NP-complete on general graphs if k is part of the input, and we consider two restricted variants. First, we show that on bipartite graphs, the problem is polynomial-time solvable, and second we show that Diverse Pair of Maximum Matchings is FPT parameterized by k. We round off the work by showing that Diverse Pair of Matchings has a kernel on ?(k²) vertices.
