I am really curious what the best-known inapproximability result is for MIN-3CNF-DELETION. To clarify, this is the problem of minimizing the number of unsatisfied clauses in a CNF SAT formula with at most 3 literals per clause. The objective function is the number of unsatisfied clauses. The strongest hardness result I have been able to find is that of MIN-HORN-DELETION, which is a restricted variant of MIN-3CNF-DELETION. As far as I know the best-known inapproximability result for MIN-HORN-DELETION is that which is given in The Approximability of Constraint Satisfaction Problems by Khanna et al (2000).
However, I have not yet been able to find explicit references to MIN-3CNF-DELETION. Is it even harder than MIN-HORN-DELETION? In which case, what is the best known inapproximability threshhold? Any feedback would be most welcome. Thanks!
