An approximation algorithm returns a solution to a combinatorial optimization problem that is provably close to optimal (as opposed to a heuristic that may or may not find a good solution). Approximation algorithms are typically used when finding an optimal solution is intractable, but can also be used in some situations where a near-optimal solution can be found quickly and . Epsilon terms. In the literature, an approximation ratio for a maximization (minimization) problem of c - ϵ (min: c + ϵ) means that the algorithm has an approximation ratio of c ∓ ϵ for arbitrary ϵ > 0 but that the ratio has not (or cannot) be shown for ϵ = 0. An example of this is the optimal inapproximability — inexistence of approximation — ratio of 7 / 8 + ϵ for satisfiable MAX.

Interior point methods in semidefinite programming with applications to combinatorial optimization. Appears in 91 books from Page - M. Charikar and S. Guha. Improved combinatorial algorithms for the facility location and k-median problems.4/5(4). This book constitutes the joint refereed proceedings of the 9th International Workshop on Approximation Algorithms for Combinatorial Optimization Problems, APPROX and the 10th International Workshop on Randomization and Computation, RANDOM , held in Barcelona, Spain, in August

On one hand this book serves as a good introduction to combinatorial optimization algorithms, in that it provides a flawless introduction to the simplex algorithm, linear and integer programming, and search techniques such as Branch-and-Bound and dynamic programming/5(27). 0 有用 Mountain King 此书和Korte的Combinatorial Optimization：theory and algorithms可以互相补充，从理论的层次更进一步理解，且Korte的书还是更新一些。/10(35).
