Example text

In some sense this compensates the negative effect of “multiple counting”. Lemma 7. Let e be a critical edge and let e∗ be an edge in T ∗ that is not adjacent to e. If the 1-flip replacing e with e∗ is feasible then both endpoints of e∗ are forward nodes in T . Proof. Let e = (u, v) and let e∗ = (x, y). Since e and e∗ are not adjacent and the 1-flip replacing e with e∗ is feasible the T -path connecting x and y contains u, v as interior nodes. Hence u and v are not leaves in T . g. that u is unprocessed and hence cubic.

We denote such low-degree nodes as path nodes, as they are exactly the nodes that arise in paths, and consequently call this reformulation maximum path-node spanning tree (MPST). Although the original and our formulation of the problem lead to the same optimum solutions (and have the same practical applications), ours is more appropriate for analyzing approximation algorithms. In fact, every spanning tree is a 1/2-approximation for MPST since at least half the nodes have degree 1 or 2. Notice that complementary problem formulations have also been successfully considered in the context of similar optimization problems.

In later works [4,5], sufficient density conditions for the existence of spanning spiders—spanning trees with at most one branch node—are considered. Salamon [14] gives a different practical motivation for MBST, which is also based on optical networks. Moreover, he provides logarithmic upper bounds on the required number of branch nodes depending on the total number of nodes and the density of the input graph. Cerulli et al. [2] develop ILP formulations for MBST which allows them to solve small instance to optimality.
