Abstract

The weighted set covering problem is to choose a number of subsets to cover all the elements in a universal set at the lowest cost. It is a well-studied classical problem with applications in various fields like machine learning, planning, information retrieval, facility allocation, etc. Deep web crawling refers to the process of gathering documents that have been structured into a data source and can be retrieved through a search interface. Its query selection process calls for an efficient solution to the set covering problem.
