On exact complexity of subgraph homeomorphism
(2007) 4th International Conference, TAMC 2007 In Theory and Applications of Models of Computation / Lecture Notes in Computer Science 4484. p.256261 Abstract
 The subgraph homeomorphism problem is to decide whether there is an injective mapping of the vertices of a pattern graph into vertices of a host graph so that the edges of the pattern graph can be mapped into (internally) vertexdisjoint paths in the host graph. The restriction of subgraph homeomorphism where an injective mapping of the vertices of the pattern graph into vertices of the host graph is already given is termed fixedvertex subgraph homeomorphism.
We show that fixedvertex subgraph homeomorphism for a pattern graph on p vertices and a host graph on n vertices can be solved in time O(2n − pnO(1)) or in time O(3n − pn6) and polynomial space. In effect, we obtain new nontrivial upper timebounds on the exact complexity...
