Tight Bounds on Vertex Connectivity Under Vertex Sampling

Abstract : A fundamental result by Karger (SODA 1994) states that for any λ-edge-connected graph with n nodes, independently sampling each edge with probability p = Ω(log n/λ) results in a graph that has edge connectivity Ω(λp), with high probability. This paper proves the analogous result for vertex connectivity, when sampling vertices. We show that for any k-vertex-connected graph G with n nodes, if each node is independently sampled with probability p = Ω(log n/k), then the subgraph induced by the sampled nodes has vertex connectivity Ω(kp^2), with high probability. This bound improves upon the recent results of Censor-Hillel et al. (SODA 2014), and is existentially optimal.
