New Paper in Networks 29 Sep 2020

In our paper ''Packing Returning Secretaries'' (by Martin Hoefer, Lisa Wilhelmi) we analyze extensions of the classic secretary problem and relax the assumption that the decision for a specific element must be made instantaneously. Our results are approximation guarantees for a wide class of combinatorial packing problems, such as knapsack, matching or independent set. Moreover, we are interested in scenarios where the decision for an element can be postponed, with the goal of selecting an optimal set of elements with the minimum number of postponements. The paper has been accepted for publication in Networks.
