The finishing time properties of several heuristic algorithms for scheduling <italic>n</italic> independent tasks on <italic>m</italic> nonidentical processors are studied. In particular, for <italic>m</italic> = 2 an <italic>n</italic> log <italic>n</italic> time-bounded algorithm is given which generates a schedule having a finishing time of at most (√5 + 1)/2 of the optimal finishing time. A simplified scheduling problem involving identical processors and restricted task sets is shown to be… CONTINUE READING
