We introduce a new approach for establishing fixed-parameter
tractability of problems parameterized above tight lower bounds or below
tight upper bounds. To
illustrate the approach we consider two problems of this type of
unknown complexity that were introduced by Mahajan, Raman and Sikdar
(J. Comput. Syst. Sci. 75, 2009). We show that a generalization of
one of the problems and three nontrivial special cases of the other problem
admit kernels of quadratic size.
