Approximate minimum weight vertex cover in a hypergraph

1 | ```
vCoverHypergraph(hg, vW=rep(1, numNodes(hg)))
``` |

`hg` |
an instance of the |

`vW` |
vertex weights |

Hypergraph `g`

has non-negative weights on its vertices.
The minimum weight vertex cover problem is to find a subset of vertices C
such that C includes at least one vertex from each hyperedge and the sum of
the weights of the vertices in C is minimum. This problem is NP-hard.

We implement the greedy algorithm to approximate near-optimal solution, proposed by E. Ramadan, A. Tarafdar, A. Pothen, 2004.
