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.

In these lecture notes, we attempt to explain the connection between the expected time of various bucket algorithms and the distribution of the data. The results are illustrated on standard searching, sorting and selection problems.
