The authors solved “a more than thirty years open... question with significant practical relevance” (Sorge et al., Lect. Notes Comput. Sci., vol.7056, 2011, pp.310-322). Results of this paper and [[3-4]] below were already discussed in R. van Bevern, R. Niedermeier, M. Sorge, and M. Weller. Complexity of arc routing problems. Chapter 2 in Arc Routing: Problems, Methods, and Applications, SIAM, 2014 and used by Golovnev et al., Inf. Process. Lett. 114(8) (2014) 421–425 to resolve an open problem on the Shortest Common Superstring problem. \\ \\ [[3] G. Gutin, M. Jones and B.

Journal of Computer and System Sciences 80 (2014) 687-696. A new linear algebra based method was introduced. Using it an open problem of Mahajan et al. (IWPEC 2006, JCSS 2009) was solved. \\ \\ [[6] J. Crampton, G. Gutin and A. Yeo, On the Parameterized Complexity and Kernelization of the Workflow Satisfiability Problem.

The papers designed theoretically efficient algorithms. Later papers evaluated implementations of the algorithmic approach of [[7]] and showed its clear superiority over the previous state-of-the-art practical algorithms for the Workflow Satisfiability Problem.\\ \\ [[8] J.

Prior to these papers there was no approach for solving several open problems stated in Mahajan et al. (IWPEC 2006, JCSS 2009) and Niedermeier (Invitation to Fixed-Parameter Algorithms, OU Press, 2006). The use of the new method allowed researchers to solve most of these problems. The two papers also led to a wider use of probabilistic method in parameterized algorithmics.
