Polynomialtime approximation schemes for subsetconnectivity problems in boundedgenus graphs
, 2009
"... We present the first polynomialtime approximation schemes (PTASes) for the following subsetconnectivity problems in edgeweighted graphs of bounded genus: Steiner tree, lowconnectivity survivablenetwork design, and subset TSP. The schemes run in O(n log n) time for graphs embedded on both orien ..."

"... Abstract. We present a polynomial time approximation scheme for Euclidean TSP in fixed dimensions. For every fixed c � 1 and given any n nodes in � 2, a randomized version of the scheme finds a (1 � 1/c)approximation to the optimum traveling salesman tour in O(n(log n) O(c) ) time. When the nodes a ..."

(The running times of the algorithm for kTSP and kMST involve an additional multiplicative factor k.) The previous best
Multicuts in Planar and BoundedGenus Graphs with Bounded Number of Terminals
, 2015
"... Given an undirected, edgeweighted graph G together with pairs of vertices, called pairs of terminals, the minimum multicut problem asks for a minimumweight set of edges such that, after deleting these edges, the two terminals of each pair belong to different connected components of the graph. Rely ..."

. Relying on topological techniques, we provide a polynomialtime algorithm for this problem in the case where G is embedded on a fixed surface of genus g (e.g., when G is planar) and has a fixed number t of terminals. The running time is a polynomial

"... We show that every language in NP has a probablistic verifier that checks membership proofs for it using logarithmic number of random bits and by examining a constant number of bits in the proof. If a string is in the language, then there exists a proof such that the verifier accepts with probabilit ..."

in the proof (though this number is a very slowly growing function of the input length). As a consequence we prove that no MAX SNPhard problem has a polynomial time approximation scheme, unless NP=P. The class MAX SNP was defined by Papadimitriou and Yannakakis [82] and hard problems for this class include

Property Testing and its connection to Learning and Approximation
"... We study the question of determining whether an unknown function has a particular property or is fflfar from any function with that property. A property testing algorithm is given a sample of the value of the function on instances drawn according to some distribution, and possibly may query the fun ..."

Next, we focus on testing graph properties, and devise algorithms to test whether a graph has properties such as being kcolorable or having a aeclique (clique of density ae
