Title: Approximation algorithm for node deletion problems on bipartite graphs

Abstract: Here we consider node deletion problems associated with non-trivial hereditary graph properties $\pi$ having finite forbidden graph characterizations. These kinds of minimization problems are approximable with a constant factor and are APX-complete. If the input graphs are restricted to bipartite graphs then algorithms with better approximation factors can be designed. We will discuss these algorithms along with some other associated problems.
