Probabilistic construction of deterministic algorithms: Approximating packing integer programs

Abstract

We consider the problem of approximating an integer program by first solving its relaxation linear program and "rounding" the resulting solution. For several packing problems, we prove probabilistically that there exists an integer solution close to the optimum of the relaxation solution. We then develop a methodology for converting such a probabilistic… (More)
