Rainbow Connectivity: Hardness and Tractability

Prabhanjan Ananth, Meghana Nasre & Kanthi K. Sarpatwar
A path in an edge colored graph is said to be a rainbow path if no two edges on the path have the same color. An edge colored graph is (strongly) rainbow connected if there exists a (geodesic) rainbow path between every pair of vertices. The (strong) rainbow connectivity of a graph G, denoted by (src(G), respectively) rc(G) is the smallest number of colors required to edge color the graph such that G is (strongly)...
