This book documents the state of the art in combinatorial optimization, presenting approximate solutions of virtually all relevant classes of NP-hard optimization problems. The wealth of problems, algorithms, results, and techniques make it an indispensible source of reference for professionals.

Complexity and Approximation

As every undergraduate CS major learns and high schoolers can be taught to understandNP-complete problems most likely have no polynomial algorithms to solve them. Although the definition of NP talks about decision problems, many NP-complete problems are more naturally formulated as optimization problems; for example, “Given a graph G and an integer k, does G have a clique of size k or larger? The book also describes several approximation techniques and examples of proving inapproximability and ends with a Garey and Johnson-like catalogue of NP-complete problems and the knowledge of their approximability or inapproximability.

Overall, this book is less interesting than Vijay Varirani’s Approximation Algorithms, which goes through several representative NP-complete problems and discusses in detail the approximation algorithm for each.

Vazirani’s book is a monograph, while this book is a approxiamtion. If you are only going to read one book on approximation algorithms, get Vazirani’s book and not this one.
