In this paper we introduce a new general framework for set covering problems, based on the combination of randomized rounding of the (near-)optimal solution of the linear programming (LP) relaxation, leading to a partial integer solution, and the application of a well-behaved approximation algorithm to complete this solution. If the value of the solution returned by the latter can be bounded in a suitable way, as is the case for the most relevant generalizations of bin packing, the method leads… CONTINUE READING
