We give a unified treatment to optimization problems that can be expressed in the form of nonnegative-real-weighted Boolean constraint satisfaction problems. Creignou, Khanna, Sudan, Trevisan, and Williamson studied the complexity of approximating their optimal solutions whose optimality is measured by the sums of outcomes of constraints. To explore a wider… CONTINUE READING
