This e-book constitutes the joint refereed court cases of the eleventh foreign Workshop on Approximation Algorithms for Combinatorial Optimization difficulties, APPROX 2008 and the twelfth overseas 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 conscientiously reviewed and chosen from forty two submissions and concentrate on algorithmic and complexity concerns surrounding the advance of effective approximate ideas to computationally tricky difficulties. RANDOM 2008 is anxious with purposes of randomness to computational and combinatorial difficulties and bills for 27 revised complete papers, additionally diligently reviewed and chosen out of fifty two workshop submissions.

**Data Smog: Surviving the Information Glut Revised and Updated Edition**

Media pupil ( and web fanatic ) David Shenk examines the troubling results of data proliferation on bodies, our brains, our relations, and our tradition, then bargains strikingly down-to-earth insights for dealing with the deluge. With a skillful mix of own essay, firsthand reportage, and sharp research, Shenk illustrates the critical paradox of our time: as our global will get extra advanced, our responses to it turn into more and more simplistic.

The following upper bound holds for m: m≤ τ −k+1 + (n − τ )(τ − s + 1). 2 (8) Proof. Let E1 be the set of edges inside G[T ] and E2 the set of edges between T and I. We bound the size of each set separately. Clearly, E1 is maximized when all the connected components in T are cliques. Furthermore, since the total number of edges in those cliques involves a sum of squares, it is maximized with one big clique of size τ − k + 1 and k − 1 isolated . vertices, by the concavity of the function x2 . Hence |E1 | ≤ τ −k+1 2 Connected Vertex Covers in Dense Graphs 45 We now consider E2 .

In the other words, we have dT (uj3 , uj3 +1 ) = dT (uj3 , xj1 ) + dT (xj1 , uj3 +1 ) ≤ k. We can say that either dT (uj3 , xj1 ) or dT (xj1 , uj3 +1 ) is at most k/2. Suppose that dT (uj3 , xj1 ) is at most k/2. The proof in the other case is exactly the same. Finally we reach the inequality dT (vj2 , uj3 ) ≤ dT (vj2 , xj1 ) + dT (xj1 , uj3 ) ≤ k/2 + k/2 = k. 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.

Summing, we get k |W | − ki + 1 = (k − 1)|W | + k . i=1 Hence, by the pigeonhole principle there exists a vertex v ∈ V − W that is connected to the following number of components: (k − 1)ρn + k ρ k ρ (k − 1)|W | + k = = (k − 1) + > (k − 1) . n − |W | n(1 − ρ) 1 − ρ n(1 − ρ) 1−ρ We can thus add v to the set X and iterate this argument. Each time a new vertex is added to X, the number of connected components in G[W ∪ X] shrinks ρ by a constant factor 1 − 1−ρ = 1−2ρ 1−ρ . And since the initial number of connected components is at most |W |, we have |X| ≤ log 1−ρ 1−2ρ (|W |) ≤ log 1−ρ (ρn) = O(log n) .
