### Abstract

In an edge modification problem one has to change the edge set of a given graph as little as possible so as to satisfy a certain property. We prove the NP-hardness of a variety of edge modification problems with respect to some well-studied classes of graphs. These include perfect, chordal, chain, comparability, split and asteroidal triple free. We show that some of these problems become polynomial when the input graph has bounded degree. We also give a general constant factor approximation algorithm for deletion and editing problems on bounded degree graphs with respect to properties that can be characterized by a finite set of forbidden induced subgraphs.
