This book presents the theory of ap proximation algorithms as it stands today. Approsimation Steiner problem with edge lengths 1 and 2. Approximation Algorithms Vijay V. Vazirani No preview available – Charting the landscape of approximability of these problems, via polynomial time algorithms, therefore becomes a compelling subject of scientific inquiry in computer science and mathematics.

Open Preview See a Problem? Philip Leclerc rated it really liked it May 09, 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. Garg, VV Vazirani, and M. In Part I we approximatino combinato rial algorithms for a number of important problems, using a wide variety of algorithm design techniques.

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. Although this may seem a paradox, all exact science is dominated by the idea of approximation.
It is reasonable to expect the picture to change with time. Brian rated it it was amazing Sep 15, Apr 17, dead letter office rated it liked it Shelves: The latter may give Part I a non-cohesive appearance. I was sparked to finally order this by Alan Fay adding it with five stars, and I’m certainly not going to allow myself to be outread by Alan Fay when it comes to theoretical computer science books written at my own Institute of Technology.
Peter Tilke rated it really liked it Nov 21, Andrea Vattani rated it really liked it Jul 17, Be the first to ask a question about Approximation Algorithms. Indeed, in this part, we have purposely refrained from tightly cat egorizing algorithmic techniques so as not to trivialize matters.

Page – S. Hampus Wessman rated it really liked it Apr 17, 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.
Dissemination of Information in Communication Networks: Approximating clique is almost NPcomplete. Page – N. 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.
