Jamie marked it as to-read Oct 14, In such a;proximation, we may decide to restrict ourselves to compute a solution that, though not being an optimal one, nevertheless is close to the optimum and may be determined in polynomial time.

The text smoothly integrates numerous illustrations, examples, and exercises. One notable example is the type of approximation that arises in numer ical analysis or in computational geometry from the fact that we cannot perform computations Preview — Complexity and Approximation by Giorgio Ausiello.

Complexity and Approximation

The book also describes several approximation techniques and examples of proving inapproximability and ends with a Garey and Johnson-like catalogue of NP-complete problems and the knowledge of their approximability or inapproximability. In particular, when a problem is computationally hard i. Rodrigo Monteiro marked it as to-read Aug 31, The Complexity of Optimization Problems.

Although the definition of NP talks about decision problems, many NP-complete problems are more naturally formulated as optimization problems; for example, “Given a graph G and an integer k, does G have a clique of size k or larger?
