In this chapter we consider a variant of the strongly NP-hard Min-Max Weighted Matching (MMWM) Problem, that has recently been introduced by Barketau et al. (2015) as in Kress et al. (2015). An instance of MMWM is defined by an edge-weighted bipartite graph G(U; V;E) with disjoint vertex sets U and V (bipartitions), edge set E, and a partitioning of U into disjoint subsets (components). Given a maximum matching on G, the weight of a component is defined as the sum of the weights of the edges of the matching that are incident to the vertices of the component.
