Closing the Gap for Makespan Scheduling via Sparsification

Abstract

Makespan scheduling on identical machines is one of the most basic and fundamental packing problem studied in the discrete optimization literature. It asks for an assignment of n jobs to a set of m identical machines that minimizes the makespan. The problem is strongly NPhard, and thus we do not expect a (1 + ε)-approximation algorithm with a running time… (More)
