A note on kernels in h-perfect graphs

Tamás Király, Júlia Pap


Boros and Gurvich showed that every clique-acyclic superorientation of a perfect graph has a kernel. We prove the following extension of their result: if G is an h-perfect graph, then every clique-acyclic and odd-hole-acyclic superorientation of G has a kernel. We propose a conjecture related to Scarf's Lemma that would imply the reverse direction of the Boros-Gurvich theorem without relying on the Strong Perfect Graph Theorem.
