A branch-and-bound algorithm for the resource-constrained project scheduling problem

We describe a time-oriented branch-and-bound set of rules for the resource-constrained venture scheduling challenge which explores the set of energetic schedules by way of enumerating attainable task begin occasions. The set of rules makes use of constraint-propagation recommendations that take advantage of the temporal and source constraints of the matter with the intention to decrease the hunt house.

Information and Randomness: An Algorithmic Perspective

"Algorithmic info thought (AIT) is the results of placing Shannon's info conception and Turing's computability thought right into a cocktail shaker and shaking vigorously", says G. J. Chaitin, one of many fathers of this conception of complexity and randomness, that's often referred to as Kolmogorov complexity.

4. Compute a greedy clustering for the solution (x, y), choosing as cluster cenC C ters unclustered clients minimizing Dav (j) + Dmax (j). 5. For every cluster center j, open one of his close facilities randomly with probabilities xij . 6. For each facility i that is not a close facility of any cluster center, open it independently with probability y i . 7. Connect each client to an open facility that is closest to him. In the analysis of this algorithm we will use the following result: Lemma 2.

6774, which means that we have an optimal approximation algorithm for instances dominated by connection cost (see Figure 1). Our main technique is to modify the support graph corresponding to the LP solution before clustering, and to use various average distances in the fractional solution to bound the cost of the obtained solution. Modifying the solution in such a way was introduced by Lin and Vitter [11] and is called filtering. Throughout this paper we will use the name sparsening technique for the combination of filtering with our new analysis.

Whenever a secretary i arrives, the algorithm learns its weight w(i) and value v(i). It must then irrevocably decide whether to select i or pass: a selected secretary cannot later be discarded, nor can a passed secretary be added. Thus, the algorithm maintains a set S of currently selected secretaries, which grows over the course of the execution, but must always satisfy w(S) ≤ W . Clearly, this setting does not permit the design of an optimal algorithm. Hence, we look for algorithms which are constant-competitive in that the expected value of the selected set S is within a constant of the optimum value.
