## Description

A vertex cover of a graph $G$ is a set $C$ of vertices such that every edge of $G$ has at least one endpoint in $C$. The vertex cover problem is to find a minimum-size vertex cover in a given graph $G$. This version of the problem is such that the input graph $G$ has all vertices' degree bounded by 3.
