We study the problem of optimally partitioning a two-dimensional array of elements by cutting each coordinate axis into (resp., ) intervals, resulting in rectangular regions. This problem arises in several applications in databases, parallel computation, and image processing. Our main contribution are new approximation algorithms for these NP-Complete problems that improve significantly over previously known bounds. The algorithms are fast and simple, work for a variety of measures of… CONTINUE READING
