For a given graph G with positive integral cost and delay on edges, distinct vertices s and t, cost bound C â̂̂ Z + and delay bound D â̂̂ Z +, the k bi-constraint path (kBCP) problem is to compute k disjoint st-paths subject to C and D. This problem is known NP-hard, even when k = 1 . This paper first gives a simple approximation algorithm with factor-(2,2), i.e. the algorithm computes a solution with delay and cost bounded by 2 D and 2 C respectively. Later, a novel improved approximation algorithm with ratio is developed by constructing interesting auxiliary graphs and employing the cycle cancellation method. As a consequence, we can obtain a factor-(1.369, 2) approximation algorithm by setting and a factor-(1.567, 1.567) algorithm by setting. Besides, by setting β = 0, an approximation algorithm with ratio (1, O(ln n)), i.e. an algorithm with only a single factor ratio O(ln n) on cost, can be immediately obtained. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first non-trivial approximation algorithm for the kBCP problem that strictly obeys the delay constraint.
