One notable example is the type of approximation that arises in numer ical analysis or in computational geometry from the fact that we cannot perform computations with arbitrary precision and we have to truncate the representation of real numbers.

Although the definition of NP talks about decision problems, many NP-complete problems are more naturally formulated as optimization problems; for example, “Given a graph G and an integer k, does G have a complexit of size k or larger?
