Probabilistic Combinatorial Optimization on Graphs by P-JohnWileySons

VIEWS: 5 PAGES: 4

This title provides a comprehensive survey over the subject of probabilistic combinatorial optimization, discussing probabilistic versions of some of the most paradigmatic combinatorial problems on graphs, such as the maximum independent set, the minimum vertex covering, the longest path and the minimum coloring. Those who possess a sound knowledge of the subject mater will find the title of great interest, but those who have only some mathematical familiarity and knowledge about complexity and approximation theory will also find it an accessible and informative read.

Description

This title provides a comprehensive survey over the subject of probabilistic combinatorial optimization,
discussing probabilistic versions of some of the most paradigmatic combinatorial problems on graphs,
such as the maximum independent set, the minimum vertex covering, the longest path and the minimum
coloring.

Those who possess a sound knowledge of the subject mater will find the title of great interest, but those
who have only some mathematical familiarity and knowledge about complexity and approximation theory
will also find it an accessible and informative read.
