A PTAS for Scheduling with Tree Assignment Restrictions
Scheduling with assignment restrictions is an important special case of scheduling unrelated machines which has attracted much attention in the recent past. While a lower bound on approximability of 3/2 is known for its most general setting, subclasses of the problem admit polynomial-time approximation schemes. This note provides a PTAS for tree-like hierarchical structures, improving on a recent 4/3-approximation by Huo and Leung. Comment: 6 pages
