Abstract

We revisit classical online makespan minimization which has been studied since the 1960s. In this problem a sequence of jobs has to be scheduled on m identical machines so as to minimize the makespan of the constructed schedule. Recent research has focused on settings in which an online algorithm is given extra information or power while processing a job sequence. In this paper we review the various models of resource augmentation and survey important results.
