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...

Approximation Algorithms for Flexible Job Shop Problems
The Flexible Job Shop problem is a generalization of the classical job shop scheduling problem in which for every operation there is a group of machines that can process it. The p...

A quasi-polynomial time approximation scheme for Euclidean capacitated vehicle routing
In the capacitated vehicle routing problem, introduced by Dantzig and Ramser in 1959, we are given the locations of n customers and a depot, along with a vehicle of capacity k, an...

A quasi-PTAS for unsplittable flow on line graphs
We study the Unsplittable Flow Problem (UFP) on a line graph, focusing on the long-standing open question of whether the problem is APX-hard. We describe a deterministic quasi-pol...
