[+] Solving hard problems - Treewidth and Parametrized complexity

We continue the discussion of NP-Hard problems that can be solved efficiently if we assume the input is restricted in some way. We discuss interval graphs, mention other graph families, and move on to define treewidth. Finally we introduc the concepts of parameterized complexity and fixed parameter tractability (FPT). We discuss kernelization and branching - two approached for designing FPT algorithms.
