Abstract : We present a reduction that allows us to establish completeness results for several ap- proximation classes mainly beyond APX. Using it, we extend one of the basic results of S. Khanna, R. Motwani, M. Sudan, and U. Vazirani On syntactic versus computational views of approximability, SIAM J. Comput., 28:164 191, 1998 by proving the existence of complete problems for the whole Log-APX, the class of problems approximable within ra- tios that are logarithms of the size of the instance. We also introduce a new approximability class, called Poly-APXΔ , dealing with graph-problems approximable with ratios func- tions of the maximum degree Δ of the input graph. For this class also, using the reduction propose, we establish complete problems.
