Optimal Proportional Cake Cutting with Connected Pieces
We consider the classic cake cutting problem where one allocates a divisible cake to n participating agents. Among all valid divisions, fairness and efficiency (a.k.a. social wel...

Inapproximability Results for Maximum Edge Biclique, Minimum Linear Arrangement, and Sparsest Cut
We consider the Minimum Linear Arrangement problem and the (Uniform) Sparsest Cut problem. So far, these two notorious NP-hard graph problems have resisted all attempts to prove in...

Maximizing conjunctive views in deletion propagation
In deletion propagation, tuples from the database are deleted in order to reflect the deletion of a tuple from the view. Such an operation may result in the (often necessary) del...

Clique Clustering Yields a PTAS for max-Coloring Interval Graphs
We are given an interval graph G = (V, E) where each interval I ∈ V has a weight wI ∈ R+. The goal is to color the intervals V with an arbitrary number of color classes C1, C2...

Approximation algorithms for power minimization of earliest deadline first and rate monotonic schedules
We address power minimization of earliest deadline first and ratemonotonic schedules by voltage and frequency scaling. We prove that the problems are NP-hard, and present (1+ ) f...

On Approximating Minimum Vertex Cover for Graphs with Perfect Matching
It has been a challenging open problem whether there is a polynomial time approximation algorithm for the Vertex Cover problem whose approximation ratio is bounded by a constant l...
