In this paper, we propose the priority facility location problem with outliers (PFLPO), which is a generalization of both the facility location problem with outliers (FLPO) and priority facility location problem (PFLP). As our main contribution, we use the technique of primal-dual to provide a 3-approximation algorithm for the PFLPO. We also give two heuristic algorithms. One of them is a greedy-based algorithm and the other is a local search algorithm. Moreover, we compare the experimental results of all the proposed algorithms in order to illustrate their performance.

The paper proposes the optimization problem of maximizing the sum of suBmodular and suPermodular (BP) functions with partial monotonicity under a streaming fashion. In this model, elements are randomly released from the stream and the utility is encoded by the sum of partial monotone suBmodular and suPermodular functions. The goal is to determine whether a subset from the stream of size bounded by parameter
