Approximation Algorithms for Partial Covering Problems
We study the generalization of covering problems to partial covering. Here we wish to cover only a desired number of elements, rather than covering all elements as in standard cov...

On the Positive-Negative Partial Set Cover problem
The Positive-Negative Partial Set Cover problem is introduced and its complexity, especially the hardness-of-approximation, is studied. The problem generalizes the Set Cover probl...

A Unified Approach to Approximating Partial Covering Problems
An instance of the generalized partial cover problem consists of a ground set U and a family of subsets S 2U . Each element e U is associated with a profit p(e), whereas each su...

Distributed and parallel algorithms for weighted vertex cover and other covering problems
The paper presents distributed and parallel -approximation algorithms for covering problems, where is the maximum number of variables on which any constraint depends (for example...

Approximation algorithms for partially covering with edges
The edge dominating set (EDS) and edge cover (EC) problems are classical graph covering problems in which one seeks a minimum cost collection of edges which covers the edges or ve...
