We develop and analyze P-optimal approximation algorithms for various generalized satisfiability problems and determine the corresponding P-optimal thresholds. The most novel aspect of the paper is that we develop new P-optimal algorithms for restricted generalized satisfiability problems which are defined by forbidden subformulas. All our algorithms run in linear time on a RAM. 1. Generalized satisflability We continue the study of algorithmic extremal problems related to the generalized… CONTINUE READING
