[+] Integer Linear programming, LP duality and a bit of Randomized algorithms

We discuss approximation algorithms for linear integer programs that use optimal solutions to the relaxation LP problem. We then introduce LP duality, show that the max-flow min-cut theorem can be obtained using LP duality, and show an approximation algorithm based on the concept of complementary slackness. In the last few minutes we start discussing randomized algorithms.
