(MATH) We present the first approximation schemes for minimizing weighted flow time on a single machine with preemption. Our first result is an algorithm that computes a (1+ε)-approximate solution for any instance of weighted flow time in <i>O</i>(<i>n</i><sup>O(ln <i>W</i> ln <i>P</i>/ε<sup>3</sup>)</sup>) time; here <i>P</i> is the ratio of maximum job processing time to minimum job processing time, and <i>W</i> is the ratio of maximum job weight to minimum job weight. This result directly… CONTINUE READING
