A very synthetic course on the topic.Explanations are of great quality and elegant!

Every algorithms given are analysed on a mathematical point of view.

ENS should enable people to get certificate for this course ! I would prefer

give money to this top institution in theorical science than to the huge private universities

To improve : the commitment of the staff to the forum

Excellente course, thank you for the excellent techniques and approach that often lacks in courses on the subject.

I would have loved a validation at least.

I'd be very happy to attend another of your class should you make a part 3 or another lecture.

Even better than the first! Very good classes (except for the two first of week 3 ...)

Learning Approximation algorithm by self is really hard. Fortunately this class is very easy to understand useful techniques such as primal-dual linear programming and SDP. Thank you very much!
