An algebraic approach to assignment problems

Rainer E. Burkard, Willi Hahn, Uwe Zimmermann
1977 Mathematical programming  
Special cases of the general model are the linear assignment problem, the linear bottleneck problem, lexicographic multicriteria problems, p-norm assignment problems and others.  ...  Further a polynomial bounded algorithm for solving this generalized assignment problem is stated. The algebraic approach can be extended to a broader class of combinatorial optimization problems.  ...  The general linear assignment problem (GLAP) Let S be a nonempty set together with an internal composition * and an order relation ~<.  ...

Integrating facility location and production planning decisions

H. Edwin Romeijn, Thomas C. Sharkey, Zuo-Jun Max Shen, Jiawei Zhang
2009 Networks  
We show that the problem, in general, is as hard to approximate as the set cover problem. We therefore focus on developing approximation algorithms for special cases of the problem.  ...  We develop a modified greedy algorithm together with the idea of cost-scaling to provide an algorithm for this class of problems with an approximation guarantee of 1.52.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank the anonymous referees for their helpful suggestions that led to a better presentation of the paper.  ...
