The Design of Approximation Algorithms
by D. P. Williamson, D. B. Shmoys
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2010
Number of pages: 496
This book shows how to design approximation algorithms: efficient algorithms that find provably near-optimal solutions. The book is organized around central algorithmic techniques for designing approximation algorithms, including greedy and local search algorithms, dynamic programming, linear and semidefinite programming, and randomization.

This textbook surveys the most important algorithms and data structures in use today. Applications to science, engineering, and industry are a key feature of the text. We motivate each algorithm by examining its impact on specific applications.

This thesis presents efficient algorithms for parallel sorting and remote data update. The sorting algorithms approach the problem by concentrating first on efficient but incorrect algorithms followed by a cleanup phase that completes the sort.
