This publication constitutes the joint refereed complaints of the eleventh foreign Workshop on Approximation Algorithms for Combinatorial Optimization difficulties, APPROX 2008 and the twelfth foreign Workshop on Randomization and Computation, RANDOM 2008, held in Boston, MA, united states, in August 2008.

The 20 revised complete papers of the APPROX 2008 workshop have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from forty two submissions and concentrate on algorithmic and complexity matters surrounding the advance of effective approximate ideas to computationally tough difficulties. RANDOM 2008 is worried with purposes of randomness to computational and combinatorial difficulties and money owed for 27 revised complete papers, additionally diligently reviewed and chosen out of fifty two workshop submissions.

The papers accrued during this ebook have been released over a interval of greater than 20 years in extensively scattered journals. They ended in the invention of randomness in mathematics which used to be awarded within the lately released monograph on “Algorithmic details conception” through the writer. There the most powerful attainable model of Gödel's incompleteness theorem, utilizing an information-theoretic procedure in accordance with the scale of desktop courses, used to be mentioned.

Note that the distance between vj2 and w = vi is at most l/3 in G, and therefore the distance between vj2 and uj3 which is a vertex on path P2 is at least l − l/3 = 2l/3 in G. Again we can say that there are two adjacent vertices in G such that their distance in T is k, and therefore the relaxation is at least (2l/3)/1 = 2l/3. 2 27-Approximation Algorithm In this section we embed a given graph G into a tree with distortion (and hence relaxation) at most 27 αG . We ﬁnd the embedding in two phases.

B˘ adoiu et al. Substituting ε = 3/(2α) + δ/α in Lemma 6, we obtain the following result: Theorem 2. For any δ > 0, there is a polynomial-time algorithm which, given an unweighted graph that ordinally embeds into the line with relaxation α, computes an ordinal embedding with relaxation (10/3)α + 5/2 + δ 4 Constant-Factor Approximation for Embedding Unweighted Graphs into Trees In this section, we develop a 27-approximation for the minimum-relaxation ordinal embedding of an arbitrary unweighted graph into a tree metric.

Li−1 . In the other words, there exists a path between u1 and u2 in graph G[V − i−1 j=0 Lj ] where G[X] is the subgraph of G induced by vertex set X. Using Lemma 3, we prove the following lemma. Lemma 7. The distortion of embedding G into H is at most 9 αG . Proof. Because we only add edges to G to form H, the distance between vertices does not increase. Therefore this metric embedding is contractive. The distortion of the embedding is thus maxu,v∈V (G)=V (H) dG (u, v)/dH (u, v). We also know that this maximum is equal to max(u,v)∈E(H) dG (u, v)/dH (u, v) because, if we know that the distance between two vertices adjacent in H is at most k in G, then the distance between every pair of vertices in G is at most k times their distance in H.
