On multiprocessor temperature-aware scheduling problems


We study temperature-aware scheduling problems under the model introduced in [Chrobak et al. AAIM 2008], where unit-length jobs of given heat contributions and common release dates are to be scheduled on a set of parallel identical processors. We consider three optimization criteria: makespan, maximum temperature and (weighted) average temperature. On the positive side, we present polynomial time approximation algorithms for the minimization of the makespan and the maximum temperature, as well as, optimal polynomial time algorithms for minimizing the average temperature and the weighted average temperature. On the negative side, we prove that there is no approximation algorithm of absolute ratio {Mathematical expression} for the problem of minimizing the makespan for any {Mathematical expression}, unless {Mathematical expression}.
