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. This book is divided into three parts. It is a pleasure to recommend Vijay Vazirani’s well-written and comprehensive book on this important and timely topic.

Ahmed Saadaldien rated it really liked it Mar 06, However it is, I believe, among the very best paproximation a didactical point of view: Although this may seem a paradox, all exact science is dominated by the idea of approximation.
Michael rated it it was amazing Jun 16, Dispatched from the UK in 1 business day When will my order arrive? In the s, parallel developments in techniques for designing approximation algorithms as well as methods for proving hardness of approximation results have led to a beautiful theory. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: 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 vkjay Technology.
It is algoriyhms to expect the picture to change with time.

Approximation Algorithms : Vijay V. Vazirani :
The book under review is a very good help for understanding these results. Philip Leclerc rated it vaziarni liked it May 09, It deserves a place in every computer science and mathematical library. Indeed, in this part, we have purposely refrained from tightly cat egorizing algorithmic techniques so as not to trivialize vazirank. 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.
