Abstract: Setcover greedy algorithm is a natural approximation algorithm for test setproblem. This paper gives a precise and tighter analysis of performanceguarantee of this algorithm. The author improves the performance guarantee$2\ln n$ which derives from set cover problem to $1.1354\ln n$ by applying thepotential function technique. In addition, the author gives a nontrivial lowerbound $1.0004609\ln n$ of performance guarantee of this algorithm. This lowerbound, together with the matching bound of information content heuristic,confirms the fact information content heuristic is slightly better thansetcover greedy algorithm in worst case.
