By Yossi Azar (auth.), Giuseppe Persiano, Roberto Solis-Oba (eds.)

The 2d Workshop on Approximation and on-line Algorithms (WAOA 2004) desirous about the layout and research of algorithms for on-line and computationally tough difficulties. either forms of difficulties have lots of functions bobbing up from a number of ?elds. WAOA 2004 came about in Bergen, Norway, from September 14 to September sixteen, 2004. The workshop used to be a part of the ALGO 2004 occasion which additionally hosted ESA, WABI, IWPEC, and ATMOS. TopicsofinterestsforWAOA2004were:applicationstogametheory,appr- imation periods, coloring and partitioning, aggressive research, computational ?nance, cuts and connectivity, geometric difficulties, inapproximability effects, mechanism layout, community layout, routing, packing and masking, paradigms, randomization concepts, and scheduling difficulties. based on our name we acquired forty seven submissions. each one submission was once reviewed via no less than three referees, who judged the paper on originality, caliber, and consistency with the subjects of the convention. in line with the stories, this system Committee chosen 21 papers. This quantity includes the 21 chosen papers and the 2 invited talks given by means of Yossi Azar and Klaus Jansen. We thank all of the authors who submitted papers to the workshop and we additionally kindly thank the neighborhood organizers of ALGO 2004.

Example text

By Lemmas 7,8 and 9, the number of possibilities in the first step and in the second step is polynomial. , finding a maximum value for each cell and finding its weight is polynomial, and the rest is simply sorting of the cells according to their weights), and the time to compute its cost is also polynomial. Therefore, the scheme takes a polynomial time. We analyze the iteration of the first guessing step in which the guessed values of βir ∀i, r are the right guesses. We also assume that in the second guessing step A PTAS for Delay Minimization in Establishing Wireless Conference Calls 45 we guess the right values of OP Tr for r = 1, 2, .

Tm ), OP T has OP T2 (T ) cells of type T that are paged in the second round. We sort the cells of type T according to their weight, and we assign the second round the OP T2 (T ) cells (among the cells of type T ) that have the least weight. We apply this procedure for all the types T . We would like to ignore all invalid solutions. e. the sum of (non-scaled) probabilities must be in the interval Ii( ) . We slightly relax this requirement since a result of the scaling may shift the sum out of this interval.

All other items are packed in their own bins according to Harmonic. We use the second version of the algorithm. We use ∆ = 1 (so I ∆(1) = ∅) and let n = j∆ . In other words, we determine the number of intervals that we use in such a way that 1 − b/2 ∈ (b/(n + 1), b/n]. The smallest interval boundary of the form b/i is just larger than 1 − b/2 (or equal to it). This ensures that in the optimal packing, only items of the smallest type could be packed together with large items with size in (b/2, 1].
