Approximation Algorithms for Scheduling Parallel Jobs
Abstract. In this paper we study variants of the non-preemptive parallel job scheduling problem where the number of machines is polynomially bounded in the number of jobs. For this...

Oblivious Buy-at-Bulk in Planar Graphs
In the oblivious buy-at-bulk network design problem in a graph, the task is to compute a fixed set of paths for every pair of source-destination in the graph, such that any set of ...

Minimum Dominating Set Approximation in Graphs of Bounded Arboricity
Abstract. Since in general it is NP-hard to solve the minimum dominating set problem even approximatively, a lot of work has been dedicated to central and distributed approximation...

Tight results for Next Fit and Worst Fit with resource augmentation
It is well known that the two simple algorithms for the classic bin packing problem, NF and WF both have an approximation ratio of 2. However, WF seems to be a more reasonable alg...
