This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Approximation and Online Algorithms, WAOA 2004, held in Bergen, Norway in September 2004. The 21 revised full papers presented together with 2 invited papers were carefully selected during two rounds of reviewing and improvement from 47 submissions. WAOA is devoted to the design and analysis of algorithms for online and computationally hard problems. Among the topics addressed are applications to game theory, approximation classes, coloring and partitioning, competitive analysis, computational finance, cuts and connectivity, geometric computations, inapproximability results, mechanism design, network design, routing, packing and covering, paradigms, randomization techniques, and scheduling problems.

The 7th Workshop on Approximation and Online Algorithms (WAOA 2009) focused on the design and analysis of algorithms for online and computati- ally hard problems. Both kinds of problems have a large number of applications from a variety of ?elds. WAOA 2009 took place in Copenhagen, Denmark, d- ing September 10-11, 2009. The workshop was part of the ALGO 2009 event that also hosted ESA 2009, IWPEC 2009, and ATMOS 2009. The previous WAOA workshops were held in Budapest (2003), Rome (2004), Palma de M- lorca(2005),Zurich(2006),Eilat(2007),andKarlsruhe(2008).The proceedings ofthesepreviousWAOAworkshopshaveappearedasLNCSvolumes2909,3351, 3879, 4368, 4927, and 5426, respectively. Topics of interest for WAOA 2009 were: algorithmic game theory, appr- imation classes, coloring and partitioning, competitive analysis, computational ?nance, cuts and connectivity, geometric problems, inapproximability results, mechanism design, network design, packing and covering, paradigms for design and analysis of approximationand online algorithms,parameterizedcomplexity, randomization techniques, real-world applications, and scheduling problems. In response to the call for papers, we received 62 submissions. Each subm- sionwasreviewedbyatleastthreereferees,andthevastmajoritybyatleastfour referees. The submissions were mainly judged on originality, technical quality, andrelevanceto the topics of the conference.Basedon the reviews,the Program Committee selected 22 papers. We are grateful to Andrei Voronkov for providing the EasyChair conference system,whichwasusedtomanagetheelectronicsubmissions,thereviewprocess, and the electronic PC meeting. It made our task much easier. We would also like to thank all the authors who submitted papers to WAOA 2009 as well as the local organizers of ALGO 2009.

Presenting an optimal energy distribution strategy for microgrids in a smart grid environment, and featuring a detailed analysis of the mathematical techniques of convex optimization and online algorithms, this book provides readers with essential content on how to achieve multi-objective optimization that takes into consideration power subscribers, energy providers and grid smoothing in microgrids. Featuring detailed theoretical proofs and simulation results that demonstrate and evaluate the correctness and effectiveness of the algorithm, this text explains step-by-step how the problem can be reformulated and solved, and how to achieve the distributed online algorithm on the basis of a centralized offline algorithm. Special attention is paid to how to apply this algorithm in practical cases and the possible future trends of the microgrid and smart grid research and applications. Offering a valuable guide to help researchers and students better understand the new smart grid, this book will also familiarize readers with the concept of the microgrid and its relationship with renewable energy.

This book provides a good opportunity for computer science practitioners and researchers to get in sync with current state-of-the-art and future trends in the field of combinatorial optimization and online algorithms. Recent advances in this area are presented focusing on the design of efficient approximation and on-line algorithms. One central idea in the book is to use a linear program relaxation of the problem, randomization and rounding techniques.
