Fast Approximation Algorithms for Fractional Packing and Covering Problems
, 1995
"... This paper presents fast algorithms that find approximate solutions for a general class of problems, which we call fractional packing and covering problems. The only previously known algorithms for solving these problems are based on general linear programming techniques. The techniques developed ..."

Covering Problems
"... The mailorder DVDrental company Netflix chooses distribution center locations so that most of its customers receive their DVDs within one business day via firstclass U.S. mail. Similarly, many municipalities aim to have fire crews reach 911 callers within a specified time, such as four minutes. B ..."

The mailorder DVDrental company Netflix chooses distribution center locations so that most of its customers receive their DVDs within one business day via firstclass U.S. mail. Similarly, many municipalities aim to have fire crews reach 911 callers within a specified time, such as four minutes. Both of these are examples of the notion of coverage, a concept that is central to several classes of facility
Covering problems with hard capacities
 IN PROC OF. FOCS’02
, 2002
"... We consider the classical vertex cover and set cover problems with the addition of hard capacity constraints. This means that a set (vertex) can only cover a limited number of its elements (adjacent edges) and the number of available copies of each set (vertex) is bounded. This is a natural generali ..."

, 2003
"... Let X = {1, 2,...,n} be a ground set of n elements, and let S be a family of subsets of X, S  = m, with a positive cost cS associated with each S ∈S. Consider the following online version of the set cover problem, described as a game between an algorithm and an adversary. An adversary gives eleme ..."

On solving binate covering problems
 in Proc. Design Automation Conf
, 1996
"... Abstract Binate (or unate) covering problems occur at several steps during logic synthesis including twolevel minimization and DAG covering. This paper presents a better lower bound computation algorithm and two new pruning techniques that significantly improve the efficiency of binate covering pr ..."

The Probabilistic Set Covering Problem
 OPERATIONS RESEARCH
, 2001
"... In a probabilistic set covering problem the right hand side is a random binary vector and the covering constraint has to be satisfied with some prescribed probability. We analyse the structure of the set of probabilistically efficient points of binary random vectors, develop methods for their enu ..."

Complexity of Graph Covering Problems
 Nordic Journal of Computing
, 1998
"... For a fixed graph H , the Hcover problem asks whether an input graph G allows a degree preserving mapping f : V (G) ! V (H) such that for every v 2 V (G), f(NG (v)) = NH (f(v)). In this paper we design efficient algorithms for certain graph covering problems according to two basic techniques. The ..."
