Approximation schemes for a class of subset selection problems

Kirk Pruhs, Gerhard J. Woeginger
2007 Theoretical Computer Science  
In this paper we develop an easily applicable algorithmic technique/tool for developing approximation schemes for certain types of combinatorial optimization problems.  ...  The approximability status of this problem has been open for some time.  ...  The class of subset selection problems described in Definition 1.1 is very general, and it contains many problems with very bad approximability behavior.  ...
