title: | Hypertree-Width and Related Hypergraph Invariants |

keywords: | hypergraphs, tree decompositions, hypertree width |

abstract: | We study the notion of hypertree-width of hypergraphs. We prove that, up to a constant factor, hypertree-width is the same as a number of other hypergraph invariants that resemble graph invariants such as bramble-number, branch-width, linkedness, and the minimum number of cops required to win Seymour and Thomas's robber and cops game. |

If your browser does not display the abstract correctly (because of the different mathematical symbols) you may look it up in the PostScript or PDF files. | |

The first *source* gives you
the `gzipped' PostScript, the second the plain PostScript and the
third the format for the Adobe accrobat reader. Depending on the
installation of your web browser, at least one of these should
(after some amount of time) pop up a window for you that shows
the full article. If this is not the case, you should contact
your system administrator to install your browser
correctly.

Due to limitations of your local software, the two formats may show up differently on your screen. If eg you use xpdf to visualize pdf, some of the graphics in the file may not come across. On the other hand, pdf has a capacity of giving links to sections, bibliography and external references that will not appear with PostScript.
