Finding a small dominating set is one of the most fundamental problems of traditional graph theory. In this paper, we present a new fully distributed approximation algorithm based on LP relaxation techniques. For an arbitrary parameter k and maximum degree #, our algorithm computes a dominating set of expected size O k# log #DSOPT rounds where each node has to send O k messages of size O(log #). This is the first algorithm which achieves a nontrivial approximation ratio in a constant number of rounds.

We introduce a new technique called oblivious roundinga variant of randomized rounding that avoids the bottleneck of first solving the linear program. Avoiding this bottleneck yields more efficient algorithms and brings probabilistic methods to bear on a new class of problems. We give oblivious rounding algorithms that approximately solve general packing and covering problems, including a parallel algorithm to find sparse strategies for matrix games.
