We prove that weighted circuit satisfiability for monotone or antimonotone circuits has no fixed-parameter tractable approximation algorithm with any approximation ratio function ρ, unless FPT≠W[1]. In particular, not having such an fpt-approximation algorithm implies that these problems have no polynomial-time approximation algorithms with ratio ρ(OPT) for any nontrivial function ρ. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
