The idea for this book was conceived over the second bottle of Villa Maria's Caber net Medot '89, at the dinner of the Australasian Combinatorics Conference held at Palmerston North, New Zealand in Decemberwhere the authors first met and discovered they had a number of interests in common.

Parameterized complexity theory is a relatively new branch of complexity theory first developed by Downey and Fellows. In a clear style, the book shows how to analyze and define problems and to recognize Parameterized complexity book principles that are appropriate for a given situation, and includes use of Parameterized Complexity and parameterized approximation.

They give a constant factor approximation for treewidth running in $c^{t}n^{O(1)}$ time. The goal of this textbook is twofold. First, the book serves as an introduction to the eld of parameterized algorithms and complexity accessible to graduate students and advanced undergraduate students.

An approach to complexity theory which offers a means of analysing algorithms in terms of their tractability.

Parameterized Complexity Theory. Summary: This book is a state-of-the-art introduction into both algorithmic techniques for fixed-parameter tractability and the structural theory of parameterized complexity classes.

Several years, many more bottles, so many papers, and reductions later it [3] seemed that we had unwittingly stumbled upon what we believe is a truly central and new area of complexity theory. It seemed to us that the material would be of great interest to people working in areas where exact algorithms for a small range of parameters are.
