## Abstract

For a class G of graphs, the objective of SUBGRAPH COMPLEMENTATION TO G is to find whether there exists a subset S of vertices of the input graph G such that modifying G by complementing the subgraph induced by S results in a graph in G. We obtain a polynomial-time algorithm for the problem when G is the class of graphs with minimum degree at least k, for a constant k, answering an open problem by Fomin et al. (Algorithmica, 2020). When G is the class of graphs without any induced copies of the star graph on t+1 vertices (for any constant tâ�¥3) and diamond, we obtain a polynomial-time algorithm for the problem. This is in contrast with a result by Antony et al. (Algorithmica, 2022) that the problem is NP-complete and cannot be solved in subexponential-time (assuming the Exponential Time Hypothesis) when G is the class of graphs without any induced copies of the star graph on t+1 vertices, for every constant tâ�¥5.
