This work finds an approximate fractional solution for maximizing the multilinear extension of the function over a down-closed polytope and it is the first improvement over the 1/e approximation achieved by the unified Continuous Greedy algorithm.
Submodular-function maximization subject to multiple constraints
An improved local search algorithms are presented and it is shown that the algorithm is polynomial time approximate and has a relatively good time complexity.

Chance-Constrained Submodular Knapsack Problem
This study considers the chance-constrained submodular knapsack problem, where a set of items whose sizes are random variables that follow probability distributions are required to find a subset of items that maximizes the objective function subject to that the probability of total item size exceeding theknapsack capacity is at most a given threshold.
A Faster Tight Approximation for Submodular Maximization Subject to a Knapsack Constraint
It is proved it suffices to enumerate only over all subsets of size at most two and still retain a tight (1 − e)-approximation, which improves the running time from O(n) to O( n) queries.
Maximize a Monotone Function with a Generic Submodularity Ratio
This paper makes a systematic analysis of greedy algorithms for maximizing a monotone and normalized set function with a generic submodularity ratio under Cardinality constraints, Knapsack constraints, Matroid constraints and K-intersection constraints.

An analysis of approximations for maximizing submodular set functions—I
It is shown that a “greedy” heuristic always produces a solution whose value is at least 1 −[(K − 1/K]K times the optimal value, which can be achieved for eachK and has a limiting value of (e − 1)/e, where e is the base of the natural logarithm.

Maximising Real-Valued Submodular Functions: Primal and Dual Heuristics for Location Problems
A slightly more specialised model is examined that generalises the location problems of interest, but now also includes the continuous aspects of the problems missing from the earlier model, namely the problem: max{wy: Σj=1najyj ≤ b, 0 ≤ yj < 1} of maximising a real-valued nondecreasing submodular function subject to a knapsack constraint.

Using techniques of linear algebra, combinatorial optimization, and convex optimization, upper and lower bounds on the optimal value for the Gaussian case are developed and integrated into a branch-and-bound algorithm for the exact solution of these design problems.
An Exact Algorithm for Maximum Entropy Sampling
An upper bound for the entropy is established, based on the eigenvalue interlacing property, and incorporated in a branch-and-bound algorithm for the exact solution of the experimental design problem of selecting a most informative subset, having prespecified size, from a set of correlated random variables.
