"A Total-Value Greedy Heuristic for the Integer Knapsack Problem"
Operations Research Letters,
Publication type: Journal article
This paper examines a new greedy heuristic for the integer knapsack problem. The proposed heuristic selects items in non-increasing order of their maximum possible contribution to the solution value given the available knapsack capacity at each step. The lower bound on the performance ratio for this "total-value" greedy heuristic is shown to dominate the corresponding lower bound for the density-ordered greedy heuristic.
