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.
The latter may give Part I a non-cohesive appearance. Improved combinatorial algorithms for the facility location and k-median problems. Ladner Limited preview – Page – M.

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.

Books by Vijay V. John rated it really liked it Sep 29, Bertrand Russell Most natural optimization problems, including those arising in important application areas, are NP-hard. Indeed, in this part, we have purposely refrained from tightly cat egorizing algorithmic techniques so as not to trivialize matters.
