Jovany Agathe rated it it was ok Feb 10, Open Preview See a Problem? Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Although this may seem a paradox, all exact science is dominated by the idea of approximation. 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.
I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: However it is, I believe, among the very best from a didactical point of view: Indeed, in this part, we have alorithms refrained from tightly cat egorizing algorithmic techniques so as not to trivialize matters.
Charting the landscape of a Although this may seem a paradox, all exact science is dominated by the idea of approximation. This book approximatiln divided into three parts. Interior point methods in semidefinite programming with applications to combinatorial optimization.
Alan Fay rated it it was amazing Mar 18, Richard Karp, University Professor, University of California at Berkeley Following the development of basic combinatorial optimization techniques in the s and s, a main open question was to develop a theory of approximation algorithms.
The chapters also contain a section of exercises, which can help the students to understand the material in a deeper way. John rated it really liked it Sep 29, The book starts briskly, using simple examples to illustrate some of the key concepts and draw the reader rapidly in.

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 vikay them. Vazirani keeps the royalty statements for this book, courtesy of Cambridge Publishing, approixmation to the outside of his office — he makes not cent one, in his own self-sacrificing protest against the price of scientific literature. Garg, VV Vazirani, and M. Page – M. 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.
It is a pleasure to recommend Vijay Vazirani’s well-written and comprehensive book on this important and timely topic. The book can approxumation used for a graduate course on approximation algorithms.
Indeed, in this part, we have purposely refrained from tightly cat egorizing algorithmic techniques so as not to trivialize matters.
It contains elegant combinatorial theory, useful and interesting algorithms, and deep results about the intrinsic complexity of combinatorial problems. Selected pages Title Page.
