Succinct Approximation of Trade-Off Curves
When evaluating different solutions from a design space, it is often the case that more than one criteria come into play. The trade-off between the different criteria is captured by the so-called Pareto curve. The Pareto curve has typically an exponential number of points. However, it turns out that, under general conditions, there is a polynomially succinct curve that approximates the Pareto curve within any desired accuracy.
