  "abstract": "<p>A confluent and terminating reduction system is introduced for graphs,which preserves the number of their perfect matchings. A union-find algorithm is presented to carry out reduction in almost linear time. The K&ouml;nig property is investigated in the context of reduction by introducing the K&ouml;nig deficiency of a graph G as the difference between the vertex covering number and thematching number ofG. It is shown that the problem of finding the K&ouml;nig deficiency of a graph is NP-complete even if we know that the graph reduces to the empty graph. Finally, the K&ouml;nig deficiency of graphs G having a vertex v such that G &minus; v has a unique perfect matching is studied in connection with reduction.</p>",
