Abstract

top
We propose a heuristic for solving the maximum independent set problem for a set of processors in a network with arbitrary topology. We assume an asynchronous model of computation and we use modified Hopfield neural networks to find high quality solutions. We analyze the algorithm in terms of the number of rounds necessary to find admissible solutions both in the worst case (theoretical analysis) and in the average case (experimental Analysis). We show that our heuristic is better than the greedy one at 1% significance level.
