Linear-Time Approximation Algorithms for Geometric Intersection Graphs

Numerous approximation algorithms for problems on geometric intersection graphs have been proposed in the literature, exhibiting a sharp trade-off between running times and approximation ratios. We introduce a method to obtain linear-time constant-factor approximation algorithms for such problems. To illustrate its applicability, we obtain results for three well-known optimization problems on two classes of geometric intersection graphs. Among such results, our method yields linear-time (4+epsilon)-approximations for the maximum-weight independent set and the minimum dominating set of unit disk graphs, thus bringing dramatic performance improvements when compared to previous algorithms that achieve the same approximation ratios.
