### Abstract

The 2-catalog segmentation problem is investigated. The problem is stated as: given a set I of n items and a family of p subsets of I, find two subsets (C_{1}, C_{2}) of I bounded by the catalog size r and the sum (2) is maximized. In general, only a trivial 0.5 approximation algorithm is known. An improvement upon this factor is made under the assumption that |I| is bounded by 2r.
