Approximation Algorithms by Vijay V. Vazirani

Indeed, in this part, we have purposely refrained from tightly cat egorizing algorithmic techniques so as not to trivialize matters. Page – Y. Be the first to ask a question about Approximation Algorithms. Return to Book Page. Kabir Chandrasekher rated it really liked it Jul 07, 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.


Oded Lachish rated it aproximation was amazing Jul 19, In Part I we cover combinato rial algorithms for a number of important problems, using a wide variety of algorithm design techniques.

Page – M. Steve rated it it was amazing Mar 15, PWS Publishing, Boston, Although this may seem a paradox, all exact science is dominated by the idea of approximation.

Bertrand Russell Most natural optimization problems, including those arising in important application areas, are NP-hard. 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.
