title = "A Parallel Approximation Algorithm for the Weighted Maximum Matching Problem",

abstract = "We consider the problem of computing a weighted edge matching in a large graph using a parallel algorithm. This problem has application in several areas of combinatorial scientific computing. Since an exact algorithm for the weighted matching problem is both fairly expensive to compute and hard to parallelise we instead consider fast approximation algorithms. We analyse a distributed algorithm due to Hoepman and show how this can be turned into a parallel algorithm. Through experiments using both complete as well as sparse graphs we show that our new parallel algorithm scales well using up to 32 processors.{"},",
