Blighted neighborhoods struggle to reinvent themselves, often with expensive physical investment. The 6% Place experiment has taken a divergent path. Instead of just focusing on physical infrastructure, it looks carefully at how people, not just buildings, can drive change. Studies have shown that creative workers and industries cluster together in the center of metropolitan areas. These studies have also shown that a worker population consisting of just 6% of creative workers can tip the balance towards a neighborhood that is thriving. cityLAB is experimenting with this one simple assumption ...

The Design of Approximation Algorithms
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Keywords: algorithms, approximation, design
Number of Pages: 516
Discrete optimization problems are everywhere, from traditional operations research planning problems, such as scheduling, facility location, and network design; to computer science problems in databases; to advertising issues in viral marketing. Yet most such problems are NP-hard. Thus unless P = NP, there are no efficient algorithms to find optimal solutions to such problems. This book shows how to design approximation algorithms: efficient algorithms that find provably near-optimal solutions. The book is organized around central algorithmic techniques for designing approximation algorithms,...
