During the s he worked mostly on approximation algorithmschampioning the primal-dual schema, which he applied to problems arising in network design, facility location and web caching, and clustering. Return to Book Page.
Refresh and try again. With Mehta, Saberi, and Umesh Vazirani, he showed in how to formulate the problem of choosing advertisements for AdWords as an online matching problem, and found a solution to this problem with optimal competitive ratio.
Vijay Vazirani – Wikipedia
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.
Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Approximation Algorithms Vijay V. Although this may seem a paradox, all exact science is dominated by the idea of approximation. It is possibly the first textbook to provide an extensive and systematic coverage of this topic.
Sincehe has been at the forefront of the effort to understand the computability of market equilibria, with an extensive body of work on the topic. Bertrand Russell Most natural optimization problems, including those arising in important application areas, are NP-hard. Vazirani’s research career has been centered around the design of algorithmstogether with work on computational complexity theorycryptographyand algorithmic game theory.
It is a pleasure to recommend Vijay Vazirani’s well-written and comprehensive book on this important and timely topic. 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.
Foundations of Computer Sciencepp. Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. Augusto Baffa rated it really liked it Feb 02, Vijay Vazirani in visiting the University of California, Berkeley. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
Its clarity of exposition and excellent selection of exercises will make it accessible and appealing to all those with a taste for mathematics and algorithms. Steve rated it it was amazing Mar 15, Polynomial time approximation scheme for Euclidean TSP and other geometric problems. In Part I we cover combinato rial algorithms for a number of important problems, using a wide variety of algorithm design techniques.

Approximation Algorithms by Vijay V. The need to solve truly large instances of computationally hard problems, such as those arising from the Internet approximztion the human genome project, has also increased interest in this theory. He moved to the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi as a full professor inand moved again to the Georgia Institute of Technology in This book presents the theory of ap proximation algorithms as it stands today.
