Dynamic representation of consecutive-ones matrices and interval graphs
We give an algorithm for updating a consecutive-ones ordering of a consecutive-ones matrix when a row or column is added or deleted. When the addition of the row or column would result in a matrix that does not have the consecutive-ones property, we return a well-known minimal forbidden submatrix for the consecutive-ones property, known as a Tucker submatrix, which serves as a certificate of correctness of the output in this case, in O(n log n) time. The ability to return such a certificate within this time bound is one of the new contributions of this work. Using this result, we obtain an ...
