This volume presents the refereed proceedings of the 10th International Workshop on Approximation Algorithms for Combinatorial Optimization Problems and the 11th International Workshop on Randomization and Computation, both held in Princeton, New Jersey, in August 2007.
Inside you’ll find 44 full papers presenting some of the latest findings and applications in the field. All of these papers were carefully reviewed by the volume’s editors.
The papers cover design and analysis of approximation algorithms, hardness of approximation, small space and data streaming algorithms, sub-linear time algorithms, embeddings and metric space methods, mathematical programming, coloring and partitioning, cuts and connectivity, geometric problems, game theory, network design and routing, packing and covering, scheduling, design and analysis of randomized algorithms, randomized complexity theory, pseudorandomness and derandomization, random combinatorial structures, random walks/Markov chains, expander graphs and randomness extractors, probabilistic proof systems, random projections and embeddings, error-correcting codes, average-case analysis, property testing, and
