Abstract: This paper deals with the single machine scheduling problem with deteriorating jobs in which there are two distinct families of jobs (i.e., two-agent) pursuing different objectives. In this model the processing time of a job is defined as a function that is proportional to a linear function of its stating time. For the following three scheduling criteria: minimizing the makespan, minimizing the total weighted completion time, and minimizing the maximum lateness, we show that some basic versions of the problem are polynomially solvable. We also establish the conditions under which the problem is computationally hard.
