Approximability of identifying codes and locating-dominating codes
We study the approximability and inapproximability of finding identifying codes and locating-dominating codes of the minimum size. In general graphs, we show that it is possible ...

Linear-time algorithms for problems on planar graphs with fixed disk dimension
The disk dimension of a planar graph G is the least number k for which G embeds in the plane minus k open disks, with every vertex on the boundary of some disk. Useful properties ...

Approximation algorithms for channel allocation problems in broadcast networks
We study two packing problems that arise in the area of dissemination-based information systems; a second theme is the study of distributed approximation algorithms. The problems c...

A Linear Time Approximation Algorithm for Ruler Folding Problem
: A chain or n-link is a sequence of n links whose lengths are fixed and are joined together from their endpoints, free to turn about their endpoints, which act as joints. "Ru...

Adding cardinality constraints to integer programs with applications to maximum satisfiability
Max-SAT-CC is the following optimization problem: Given a formula in CNF and a bound k, find an assignment with at most k variables being set to true that maximizes the number of ...

The Snowblower Problem
Abstract: We introduce the snowblower problem (SBP), a new optimization problem that is closely related to milling problems and to some material-handling problems. The objective in...

Approximating Multi-Criteria Max-TSP
Abstract. We present randomized approximation algorithms for multicriteria Max-TSP. For Max-STSP with k > 1 objective functions, we obtain an approximation ratio of 1 k - for a...
