Book cover: Iterative Methods in Combinatorial OptimizationIterative Methods in Combinatorial Optimization
by - Cambridge University Press
This book describes a simple method that is iterative in essence, and useful in a variety of settings for exact and approximate optimization. The authors highlight the commonality and uses of this method to prove a variety of classical results.
