We present a logspace algorithm to compute path decompositions of bounded pathwidth graphs, thus settling its complexity. Prior to our work, the best known upper bound to compute such decompositions was linear time. We also show that deciding if the pathwidth of a graph is at most a given constant ... more >>>

So-called ordered variants of the classical notions of pathwidth and treewidth are introduced and proposed as proof theoretically meaningful complexity measures for the directed acyclic graphs underlying proofs. The ordered pathwidth of a proof is shown to be roughly the same as its formula space. Length-space lower bounds for R(k)-refutations ... more >>>

We consider the complexity of the firefighter problem where ${b \geq 1}$ firefighters are available at each time step. This problem is proved NP-complete even on trees of degree at most three and budget one (Finbow et al. 2007) and on trees of bounded degree $b+3$ for any fixed budget ... more >>>
