Unformatted text preview: CMSC 451: Subset Sum & Knapsack Slides By: Carl Kingsford Department of Computer Science University of Maryland, College Park Based on Section 6.4 of Algorithm Design by Kleinberg & Tardos. Subset Sum Subset Sum Given: • an integer bound W , and • a collection of n items, each with a positive, integer weight w i , find a subset S of items that: maximizes ∑ i ∈ S w i while keeping ∑ i ∈ S w i ≤ W . Motivation: you have a CPU with W free cycles, and want to choose the set of jobs (each taking w i time) that minimizes the number of idle cycles. Assumption We assume W and each w i is an integer. Optimal Notation Notation: • Let S * be an optimal choice of items (e.g. a set { 1,4,8 } ) . • Let OPT ( n , W ) be the value of the optimal solution. • We design an dynamic programming algorithm to compute OPT ( n , W ). Subproblems: • To compute OPT ( n , W ): We need the optimal value for subproblems consisting of the first j items for every knapsack size 0 ≤ w ≤ W . • Denote the optimal value of these subproblems by OPT ( j , w ). Recurrence Recurrence: How do we compute OPT ( j , w ) given solutions to smaller subproblems?smaller subproblems?...
