By Evripidis Bampis, Martin Skutella

This ebook constitutes the completely refereed put up workshop lawsuits of the sixth foreign Workshop on Approximation and on-line Algorithms, WAOA 2008, held in Karlsruhe, Germany, in September 2008 as a part of the ALGO 2008 convention event.

The 22 revised complete papers provided have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from fifty six submissions. The workshop coated parts comparable to algorithmic online game concept, approximation sessions, coloring and partitioning, aggressive research, computational finance, cuts and connectivity, geometric difficulties, inapproximability effects, mechanism layout, community layout, packing and protecting, paradigms for layout and research of approximation and on-line algorithms, randomization ideas, real-world purposes, and scheduling problems.

To the MSMDd problem. Note that if the input graph is bipartite, these problems are equivalent to classical transportation and assignment problems in operation research. The first problem studied in the paper is a classical NP-hard problem listed in [13] (cf. Problem [GT26] for the unweighted version): Maximum Degree-Bounded Connected Subgraph (MDBCSd ) Input: A graph G = (V, E), a weight function ω : E → R+ and an integer d ≥ 2. Output: A subset E ⊆ E such that the subgraph G = (V, E ) is connected, has maximum degree at most d, and e∈E ω(E) is maximized.

We construct a sequence of families of graphs Gk , such that MSMD3 is hard to approximate within a factor θ(αk ) in the family Gk . This proves that MSMD3 does not admit any constant-factor approximation. In the following, Gk denotes a typical element of Gk constructed using the element G of G1 . We describe the construction of G2 , and obtain the result by repeating the same construction Degree-Constrained Subgraph Problems 39 inductively to obtain Gk . For every vertex v in G (of degree dv ), construct a graph Gv as follows.
