3-partition problem
The 3-partition problem is a strongly NP-complete problem in computer science. The problem is to decide whether a given multiset of integers can be partitioned into triplets that all have the same sum
Longest-processing-time-first scheduling
Longest-processing-time-first (LPT) is a greedy algorithm for job scheduling. The input to the algorithm is a set of jobs, each of which has a specific processing-time. There is also a number m specif
Multiway number partitioning
In computer science, multiway number partitioning is the problem of partitioning a multiset of numbers into a fixed number of subsets, such that the sums of the subsets are as similar as possible. It
Pseudopolynomial time number partitioning
In computer science, pseudopolynomial time number partitioning is a pseudopolynomial time algorithm for solving the partition problem. The problem can be solved using dynamic programming when the size
Multifit algorithm
The multifit algorithm is an algorithm for multiway number partitioning, originally developed for the problem of identical-machines scheduling. It was developed by Coffman, Garey and Johnson. Its nove
Configuration linear program
The configuration linear program (configuration-LP) is a particular linear programming used for solving combinatorial optimization problems. It was introduced in the context of the cutting stock probl
Balanced number partitioning
Balanced number partitioning is a variant of multiway number partitioning in which there are constraints on the number of items allocated to each set. The input to the problem is a set of n items of d
Identical-machines scheduling
Identical-machines scheduling is an optimization problem in computer science and operations research. We are given n jobs J1, J2, ..., Jn of varying processing times, which need to be scheduled on m i
Matroid-constrained number partitioning
Matroid-constrained number partitioning is a variant of the multiway number partitioning problem, in which the subsets in the partition should be independent sets of a matroid. The input to this probl
Partition problem
In number theory and computer science, the partition problem, or number partitioning, is the task of deciding whether a given multiset S of positive integers can be partitioned into two subsets S1 and
Largest differencing method
In computer science, the largest differencing method is an algorithm for solving the partition problem and the multiway number partitioning. It is also called the Karmarkar–Karp algorithm after its in
Greedy number partitioning
In computer science, greedy number partitioning is a class of greedy algorithms for multiway number partitioning. The input to the algorithm is a set S of numbers, and a parameter k. The required outp
