An approximation algorithm returns a solution to a combinatorial optimization problem that is provably close to optimal (as opposed to a heuristic that may or may not find a good solution).

Approximation algorithms are typically used when finding an optimal solution is intractable, but can also be used in some situations where a near-optimal solution can be found quickly and.

Epsilon terms. In the literature, an approximation ratio for a maximization (minimization) problem of c - ϵ (min: c + ϵ) means that the algorithm has an approximation ratio of c ∓ ϵ for arbitrary ϵ > 0 but that the ratio has not (or cannot) be shown for ϵ = 0.

An example of this is the optimal inapproximability — inexistence of approximation — ratio of 7 / 8 + ϵ for satisfiable MAX. Interior point methods in semidefinite programming with applications to combinatorial optimization.

Combinatorial optimization is a subset of mathematical optimization that is related to operations research, algorithm theory, and computational complexity theory.

It has important applications in several fields, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, auction theory, and software engineering. This book documents the state of the art in combinatorial optimization, presenting approximate solutions of virtually all relevant classes of NP-hard optimization problems.

The wealth of problems, algorithms, results, and techniques make it an indispensible source of reference for professionals/5.Course Overview: The main paradigm in the course will be the design and analysis of algorithms for combinatorial optimization. We will cover problems that can be solved optimally in polynomial time (matchings, flows, min-cost flows) as well as study problems that are NP-hard, and for which we can develop approximation algorithms.
