"... Let Π be an NPhard optimization problem, and let A be an approximation algorithm for Π. For an instance I of Π, let A(I) denote the objective value when running A on I, and let OP T (I) denote the optimal objective value.

"... Abstract. We present a polynomial time approximation scheme for Euclidean TSP in fixed dimensions. For every fixed c � 1 and given any n nodes in � 2, a randomized version of the scheme finds a (1 � 1/c)approximation to the optimum traveling salesman tour in O(n(log n) O(c) ) time. When the nodes a ..."

On the Existence of Polynomial Time Approximation Schemes for OBDD Minimization
 STACS'98, LNCS 1373
, 1998
"... Abstract The size of Ordered Binary Decision Diagrams (OBDDs) is determined by the chosen variable ordering. A poor choice may cause an OBDD to be too large to fit into the available memory. The decision variant of the variable ordering problem is known to be ¡£¢complete. We strengthen this result ..."

"... The data broadcast problem is to find a schedule for broadcasting a given set of messages over multiple channels. The goal is to minimize the cost of the broadcast plus the expected response time to clients who periodically and probabilistically tune in to wait for particular messages. The problem ..."

The JohnsonLindenstrauss lemma states that n points in a high dimensional Hilbert space can be embedded with small distortion of the distances into an O(log n) dimensional space by applying a random linear transformation. We show that similar (though weaker) properties hold for certain random linea ..."
