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...

Analysis of Approximation Algorithms for k-Set Cover Using Factor-Revealing Linear Programs
We present new combinatorial approximation algorithms for k-set cover. Previous approaches are based on extending the greedy algorithm by efficiently handling small sets. The new a...
