In this way most of the most important results from the approximation algorithm literature are covered, often more easily comprehensible algorihms the original articles.

Andrew rated it really liked it Jul 15, In Part I we cover combinato rial algorithms for a number of vjjay problems, using a wide variety of algorithm design techniques. It is reasonable to expect the picture to change with time. Hampus Wessman rated it really liked it Apr 17, Although this may seem a paradox, all exact science is dominated by the idea of approximation.

Niklasl rated it really liked it Jan 23, Review Text From the reviews: Back cover copy This book covers the dominant theoretical approaches to the approximate solution of hard combinatorial optimization and enumeration problems.

Copious exercises are approximatjon to test and deepen the reader’s understanding. The Best Books of Bertrand Russell Most natural optimization problems, including those arising in important application areas, are NP-hard.

With Mehta, Saberi, and Umesh Vazirani, he showed in how to formulate the problem of choosing advertisements for AdWords as an online matching problem, and found a solution to this problem with optimal competitive ratio.

Product details Format Hardback pages Dimensions x x This book presents the theory of ap proximation algorithms as it stands today. It is a pleasure to recommend Vijay Vazirani’s well-written and comprehensive book on this important and timely topic. It contains elegant combinatorial theory, useful and interesting algorithms, and deep results about the intrinsic complexity of combinatorial problems. Brian rated it it was amazing Sep 15, In each of the 27 chapters an important combinatorial optimization problem is presented and one or more approximation algorithms for it are clearly and concisely described and analyzed.


Instead, we have attempted to capture, as accurately as possible, the individual character of each problem, and point out connections between problems and algorithms for solving them. However, this is to be expected – nature is very rich, and we cannot expect a few tricks to help solve the diverse collection of NP-hard problems. Improved combinatorial algorithms for the facility location and k-median problems.

It presents the most important problems, the basic methods and ideas which are used in this area. Vazirani keeps the royalty statements for this book, courtesy of Cambridge Publishing, taped to the outside of his office — he makes not cent one, in his own self-sacrificing protest against the price of scientific literature.
