## Abstract

We consider connectivity-augmentation problems in a setting where each potential new edge has a nonnegative cost associated with it, and the task is to achieve a certain connectivity target with at most p new edges of minimum total cost. The main result is that the minimum cost augmentation of edge-connectivity from k − 1 to k with at most p new edges is fixed-parameter tractable parameterized by p and admits a polynomial kernel. We also prove the fixed-parameter tractability of increasing edge-connectivity from 0 to 2, and increasing node-connectivity from 1 to 2.
