Summary
This comprehensive textbook on combinatorial optimization places special emphasis on theoretical results and algorithms with provably good performance, in contrast to heuristics. It is based on numerous courses on combinatorial optimization and specialized topics, mostly at graduate level. This book reviews the fundamentals, covers the classical topics (paths, flows, matching, matroids, NP-completeness, approximation algorithms) in detail, and proceeds to advanced and recent topics, some of which have not appeared in a textbook before. Throughout, it contains complete but concise proofs, and also provides numerous exercises and references. This sixth edition has again been updated, revised, and significantly extended. Among other additions, there are new sections on shallow-light trees, submodular function maximization, smoothed analysis of the knapsack problem, the (ln 4+ɛ)-approximation for Steiner trees, and the VPN theorem. Thus, this book continues to represent the state of the art of combinatorial optimization. From the reviews of the previous editions: “This book on combinatorial optimization is a beautiful example of the ideal textbook.” Operations Research Letters 33 (2005) “This is the 5th edition of one of the standard books in combinatorial optimization. It is an excellent book covering everything from the basics up to the most advanced topics (graduate level and current research). It provides theoretical results, underlying ideas, algorithms and the needed basics in graph theory in a very nice, comprehensive way. The book also provides insights into and pointers to adjacent areas that could not be covered in full length for the interested reader. “Combinatorial Optimization” can easily serve as an (almost) complete reference for current research and is state-of-the-art.
