## A 2-approximation algorithm for the minimum knapsack problem with a forcing graph

Carnes and Shmoys (2015) presented a 2-approximation algorithm for the minimum knapsack problem. We extend their algorithm to the minimum knapsack problem with a forcing graph (MKPFG), which has a forcing constraint for each edge in the graph. The forcing constraint means that at least one item (vertex) of the edge must be packed in … Read more
