Online Generalized Steiner Problem Baruch Awerbuch \Lambda Yossi Azar y Yair Bartal z
 

Summary: Chapter 9
On­line Generalized Steiner Problem
Baruch Awerbuch \Lambda Yossi Azar y Yair Bartal z
Abstract
The Generalized Steiner Problem (GSP) is defined
as follows. We are given a graph with non­negative
weights and a set of pairs of vertices. The algorithm
has to construct minimum weight subgraph such that
the two nodes of each pair are connected by a path.
Off­line generalized Steiner problem approxima­
tion algorithms were given in [AKR91, GW92].
We consider the on­line generalized Steiner prob­
lem, in which pairs of vertices arrive on­line and are
needed to be connected immediately.
We give a simple O(log 2 n) competitive determin­
istic on­line algorithm. The previous best algorithm
was O(
p
n log n) competitive [WY93].
We also consider the network connectivity leasing
