What can one do when faced with an NP-hard optimisation problem? We will examine local search algorithms and their potential to approximate difficult tasks, where the best known exact algorithm has exponential time complexity. In particular, I will show how we can apply local search to give approximate solutions with bounded error to the General Assignment Problem (GAP) in polynomial time.
