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.

Charting the landscape of a Although this may seem a paradox, all exact science is dominated by the idea of approximation. Charting the landscape of approximability of these problems, via polynomial time approximatioh, therefore becomes a compelling subject of scientific inquiry in computer science vljay mathematics. This book presents the theory of ap proximation algorithms as it stands today. It is reasonable to expect the picture to change with time.
This book is divided into three parts. In Part I we cover combinato rial algorithms for a number of important problems, using a wide variety of algorithm design techniques.
The latter may give Part I a non-cohesive appearance. 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. Indeed, in this part, we have purposely refrained from tightly cat egorizing algorithmic techniques so as not to trivialize matters.
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.

Mar 19, Nick Black marked it as embarrassed-not-to-have-read. I was sparked to finally v.vazirqni 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.
Vazirani keeps the royalty statements for this book, courtesy of Cambridge Publishing, taped to the outside of his office — he makes not v.vaziirani one, in his own self-sacrificing protest against the price of scientific literature.
