This book shows how to design approximation algorithms: efficient algorithms that find provably near-optimal solutions. It is organized around techniques for designing approximation algorithms, including greedy and local search algorithms.

This textbook surveys the most important algorithms and data structures in use today. Applications to science, engineering, and industry are a key feature of the text. We motivate each algorithm by examining its impact on specific applications.
