### Abstract

In this paper we show a reduction from the Unique Games problem to the problem of approximating MAX-CUT to within a factor of ffGW + ffl, for all ffl> 0; here ffGW ss.878567 denotes the approximation ratio achieved by the Goemans-Williamson algorithm [25]. This implies that if the Unique Games
