English abstract:
Several variants of Multicut problems arise in applications like circuit and network design. In general, these problems are NP-complete. The goal of our work is to investigate the potential of clique-width for identifying tractable fragments of Multicut. We show for several parameterizations involving clique-width whether they lead to tractability or not. Since bounded tree-width implies bounded clique-width, our tractability results extend previous results via tree-width, in particular to dense graphs.
