ABSTRACT = {Jim Propp’s rotor router model is a simple deterministic analogue of a random
walk.
Instead of distributing chips randomly, it serves the neighbors in a fixed
order. We
analyze the difference between Propp machine and random walk on the infinite
two-
dimensional grid. We show that, independent of the starting configuration, at
each
time, the number of chips on each vertex deviates from the expected number of
chips in the random walk model by at most a constant c, which is 7.83 for
clockwise
rotor sequences and 7.28 otherwise. This is the first paper which demonstrates
that
the order in which the neighbors are served makes a difference.},

This is a major step towards the computation of the full arrangement. We
enhanced an implementation for an exact parameterization of the intersection
curves of two quadrics, such that we can compute the exact parameter value for
intersection points and from that the adjacency graph of the arrangement. Our
implementation is complete in the sense that it can handle all kind of inputs
including all degenerate ones where intersection curves have singularities or
pairs of curves intersect with high multiplicity. It is exact in that it always
computes the mathematical correct result. It is efficient measured in running
times, we compare it with a previous implementation based on planar
arrangements of the projected intersection curves.},

ABSTRACT = {CGAL is targeting towards exact computation with non-linear objects, in
particular objects defined on algebraic curves and surfaces. As a consequence
types representing polynomials, algebraic extensions and finite fields play a
more important role in related implementations. This package has been
introduced to stay abreast of these changes. Since in particular polynomials
must be supported by the introduced framework the package avoids the term {\em
number type}. Instead the package distinguishes between the {\em algebraic
structure} of a type and whether a type is embeddable on the real axis, or {\em
real embeddable} for short. Moreover, the package introduces the notion of {\em
interoperable} types which allows an explicit handling of mixed operations.},

ABSTRACT = {We report on several filter techniques on top of the recently completed

a model for {\sc CGAL}'s
{\sf ArrangementTraits\_2} concept.
Geometric predicates for two arcs are usually answered by analyzing the
geometry of the underlying supporting curve pair.
Such an analysis tends to be a time-consuming task, especially
if arcs are defined by algebraic curves of arbitrary degree.
Our refined model {\tt Filtered\_curved\_kernel\_via\_analysis\_2}
tries to prevent
the computation of such a curve pair analysis if possible by a filtered method
to detect non-intersections.
When instantiated with a proper model of the {\sf CurveKernel\_2} concept,
we show experimentally that fewer curve pair analyses are necessary.},

ABSTRACT = {Modular arithmetic is a fundamental tool in modern algebra systems. In
conjunction with the Chinese remainder theorem it serves as the workhorse in
several algorithms computing the gcd, resultant etc. Moreover, it can serve as
a very efficient filter. This CGAL package introduces the type {\tt
CGAL::Modular} representing a finite field over some prime. Moreover, the
package introduces {\tt CGAL::Modular\_traits} providing a mapping from some
algebraic structure {\tt T} into an algebraic structure that is based on the
type {\tt CGAL::Modular}.},

ABSTRACT = {Controlled Perturbation (CP, for short) is an approach to implement
efcient and robust geometric algorithms using the computational speed of
builtin
nite precision arithmetic, while bypassing precision problems during the
computation.
Furthermore it avoids the time-consuming and error-prone discussion
of degenerate cases. CP replaces the input objects by a set of randomly
perturbed
(moved, scaled, stretched, etc.) objects such that the algorithm is guaranteed
to
compute the exact combinatorial structure that these objects imply.
This paper is meant as a guide how to decide if CP can be applied to a given
algorithm, and if, how to correlate all CP parameters: the perturbation amount
d ,
the arithmetic precision $L$, the maximum range of input values $[−m,m]$, the
number
of input objects $n$, the error bound $\mathcal{B}_f$ of the (chosen) predicate
evaluations,
and the probability $\mathcal{P}$ of a successful computation. For this purpose
we present
a general methodology to analyze predicate functions that leads to an inequality
correlating these parameters and hence to bounds on the precision or
perturbation
amount. In particular we treat the case of the wide used class of polynomial
predicates
in detail. Advantages, drawbacks and implementation issues are discussed.},

ABSTRACT = {We summarize the results of the cross-benchmarks for two univariate algebraic

tested on 6 types of univariate polynomials of various degrees and bitsizes.
The methods included were: Sturm, Sleeve, CF, NCF, NCF2 for the INRIA kernel,
and Descartes and Bitstream-Descartes for the MPI kernel. NCF, NCF2, Descartes
and Bitstream-Descartes are the most robust and never give wrong results. With
respect to speed, the results are not decisive in most cases. Overall NCF and
NCF2 seem faster, while for very large bitsizes Bitstream-Descartes seems more
efficient, provided
the degree is not very high. Special algorithms for polynomials of
degree up to 4 give better results. We also compare against an external
AK developed at LORIA-Nancy and based on the RS solver from INRIARocquencourt.},

ABSTRACT = {We present a C++ open-source implementation of an incremental algorithm
for the computation of the Voronoi diagram of ellipses in the Euclidean
plane. This is the first complete implementation, under the exact computation
paradigm; it also computes the approximate diagram with any given precision.
It is based on the cgal package for the Apollonius diagram. The ellipses
are given in parametric representation, which allows us to develop a GUI for
input / output. The software concerns non-intersecting ellipses, but it can be
generalized. We implement an interval Newton solver, bivariate polynomial
interpolation, and trivariate system resultant computation, and demonstrate
the factorization of certain resultants so as to arrive at an efficient
implementation
of InCircle . As a ballmark estimate, our code spends about 99sec
to construct the Voronoi diagram of 128 ellipses, when few degeneracies occur.
It is faster than the cgal Voronoi diagram of polygons, when ellipses
are approximated by k-gons for k > 15, but expectedly slower on circles than
the cgal Apollonius package. Our software is connected to the algebraic library
Synaps and, through it, to libraries mpfr and ntl, hence illustrating
the concept of algebraic support for geometric computing; it is targeted for
inclusion in the cgal library. In this direction, we present some experiments
using the new Algebraic Kernel from MPI.},

ABSTRACT = {This paper addresses the following fundamental problem: Suppose that in a group
of $n$ people,
where each person knows all other group members, a single person holds a piece
of information that must be disseminated to everybody within the group.
How should the people propagate the information so that after short time
everyone is informed?
The classical approach, known as the {\em push model}, requires that in each
round,
every informed person selects some other person in the group at random, whom it
then informs.
In a different model, known as the \emph{quasirandom push model}, each person
maintains a cyclic list, i.e., permutation,
of all members in the group (for instance, a contact list of persons).
Once a person is informed, it chooses a random member in its own list,
and from that point onwards, it informs a new person per round, in the order
dictated by the list.
In this paper we show that with probability $1-o(1)$ the quasirandom protocol
informs everybody in
$(1 \pm o(1))\log_2 n+\ln n$ rounds; furthermore we also show that this bound
is tight. This result, together with previous work on the randomized push
model, demonstrates that irrespectively of the choice of lists, quasirandom
broadcasting is as fast as broadcasting in the randomized push model, up to
lower order terms. At the same
time it reduces the number of random bits from $O(\log^2 n)$ to only
$\lceil\log_2 n\rceil$ per person. },

ABSTRACT = { In this paper we consider the problem of computing minimum-cost spanning trees
with depth restrictions. Specifically, we are given an $n$-node complete graph
$G$, a metric cost-function $c$ on its edges, and an integer $k\geq 1$. The
goal in the minimum-cost $k$-hop spanning tree problem is to compute a spanning
tree $T$ in $G$ of minimum total cost such that the longest root-leaf-path in
the tree has at most $k$ edges.
Our main result is an algorithm that computes a tree of depth at most $k$ and
total expected cost $O(\log n)$ times that of a minimum-cost $k$-hop
spanning-tree. The result is based upon earlier work on metric space
approximation due to Fakcharoenphol et al.[FRT03] and Bartal [Bart96,Bart98].
In particular we show that the problem can be solved exactly in polynomial time
when the cost metric $c$ is induced by a so-called hierarchically
well-separated tree. },

ABSTRACT = {Hierarchical specifications of graphs have been widely used in many important
applications, such as VLSI design, parallel programming and software
engineering. A well known hierarchical specification model, considered in this
work, is that of Lengauer [9, 10] referred to as L-specifications. In this
paper we discuss a restriction on the L-specifications resulting to graphs
which we call Well-Separated (WS). This class is characterized by a polynomial
time (to the size of the specification of the graph) testable combinatorial
property.
In this work we study the Radiocoloring Problem (RCP) on WS L-specified
hierarchical planar graphs. The optimization version of RCP studied here,
consists in assigning colors to the vertices of a graph, such that any two
vertices of distance at most two get different colors. The objective here is to
minimize the number of colors used. This problem is equivalent to the problem
of vertex coloring the square of a graph $G$, $G^2$, where $G^2$ has the same
vertex set as $G$ and there is an edge between any two vertices of $G^2$ if
their distance in $G$ is at most 2.
We first show that RCP is PSPACE-complete for WS L-specified hierarchical
planar graphs. Second, we present a polynomial time 3-approximation algorithm
as well as a more efficient 4-approximation algorithm for RCP on graphs of this
class.
We note that, the best currently known approximation ratio for the RCP on
ordinary (non-hierarchical) planar graphs of general degree is 2 ([6, 1]). Note
also that the only known results on any kind of coloring problems have been
shown for another special kind of hierarchical graphs (unit disk graphs)
achieving a 6-approximation solution [13]. },

ABSTRACT = {We present an efficient external-memory dynamic data structure for
point location in monotone planar subdivisions. Our data structure
uses $O(N/B)$ disk blocks to store a monotone subdivision of size $N$,
where $B$ is the size of a disk block. It supports queries in
$O(\log_{B}^{2} N)$ I/Os (worst-case) and updates in $O(\log_{B}^{2} N)$ I/Os
(amortized).
We also propose a new variant of $B$-trees, called
{\em level-balanced $B$-trees}, which allow insert, delete, merge,
and split operations in $O((1+\frac{b}{B}\log_{M/B} \frac{N}{B})\log_{b}
N)$ I/Os (amortized), $2\leq b\leq B/2$, even if each node stores a
pointer to its parent. Here $M$ is the size of main memory. Besides
being essential to our point-location data structure, we believe that
{\em level-balanced B-trees\/} are of significant independent
interest. They can, for example, be used to dynamically maintain a
planar st-graph using $O((1+\frac{b}{B}\log_{M/B} \frac{N}{B})\log_{b}
N)=O(\log_{B}^{2} N)$ I/Os (amortized) per update, so that reachability
queries can be answered in $O(\log_{B} N)$ I/Os (worst case).},

ABSTRACT = {\begin{abstract}
Rigid body docking approaches are not sufficient to predict the structure of a
protein complex from the unbound (native) structures of the two proteins.
Accounting for side--chain flexibility is an important step towards fully
flexible protein docking. This work describes an approach that allows
conformational flexibility for the side--chains while keeping the protein
backbone rigid. Starting from candidates created by a rigid docking
algorithm, we demangle the side--chains of the docking site, thus creating
reasonable approximations of the true complex structure. These structures are
ranked with respect to the binding free energy. We present two new techniques
for side--chain demangling. Both approaches are based on a discrete
representation of the side--chain conformational space by the use of a rotamer
library. This leads to a combinatorial optimization problem. For the solution
of this problem we propose a fast heuristic approach and an exact, albeit
slower method using branch--\&--cut techniques. As a test set we use the
unbound structures of three proteases and the corresponding protein
inhibitors. For each of the examples the highest--ranking conformation
produced was a good approximation of the true complex structure.

ABSTRACT = {We report on a software library of dynamic graph algorithms.
It was written in \CC as an extension of LEDA, the library
of efficient data types and algorithms. It contains implementations
of simple data structures as well as of sophisticated data
structures for dynamic connectivity, dynamic minimum spanning trees,
dynamic single source shortest paths, and dynamic transitive
closure. All data structures are implemented by classes derived
from a common base class, thus they have a common interface.
Additionally, the base class is in charge of keeping all dynamic
data structures working on the same graph consistent.
It is possible to change the structure of a graph by a procedure
which is not aware of the dynamic data structures initialized for
this graph. The library is easily extendible.},

ABSTRACT = {We discuss the implementation of network flow algorithms in floating point
arithmetic. We give an example to illustrate the difficulties that may arise
when floating point arithmetic is used without care. We describe an iterative
improvement scheme that can be put around any network flow algorithm for
integer capacities. The scheme carefully scales the capacities such that all
integers arising can be handled exactly using floating point arithmetic. Let n
and m be the number of nodes and edges of the network, respectively. For m 109
and with double precision floating point arithmetic, the number of iterations
is always bounded by three, and the relative error in the flow value is at most
2−19. For m 106 and with double precision arithmetic, the relative error after
the first iteration is bounded by 10−3. },

ABSTRACT = {Multiple sequence alignment is one of the dominant problems in computational
molecular biology. Numerous scoring functions and methods have been proposed,
most of which result in NP-hard problems. In this paper we propose for the
first time a general formulation for multiple alignment with arbitrary
gap-costs based on an integer linear program (ILP). In addition we describe a
branch-and-cut algorithm to effectively solve the ILP to optimality. We
evaluate the performances of our approach in terms of running time and quality
of the alignments using the BAliBase database of reference alignments. The
results show that our implementation ranks amongst the best programs developed
so far.},

ABSTRACT = {Let P be a set of n points in the plane. A crossing-free structure on P is a
straight-edge planar graph with vertex set in P. Examples of crossing-free
structures include triangulations of P, and spanning cycles of P, also known as
polygonalizations of P, among others. There has been a large amount of research
trying to bound the number of such structures. In particular, bounding the
number of triangulations spanned by P has received considerable attention. It
is currently known that every set of n points has at most O(30^n) and at least Ω
(2.43^n) triangulations. However, much less is known about the algorithmic
problem of counting crossing-free structures of a given set P. For example, no
algorithm for counting triangulations is known that, on all instances, performs
faster than enumerating all triangulations. In this paper we develop a general
technique for computing the number of crossing-free structures of an input set
P. We apply the technique to obtain algorithms for computing the number of
triangulations and spanning cycles of P. The running time of our algorithms is
upper bounded by n^O(k), where k is the number of onion layers of P. In
particular, we show that our algorithm for counting triangulations is not
slower than O(3.1414^n). Given that there are several well-studied
configurations of points with at least Ω(3.464^n) triangulations, and some even
with Ω(8^n) triangulations, our algorithm is the first to asymptotically
outperform any enumeration algorithm for such instances. In fact, it is widely
believed that any set of n points must have at least Ω(3.464^n) triangulations.
If this is true, then our algorithm is strictly sub-linear in the number of
triangulations counted. We also show that our techniques are general enough to
solve the restricted triangulation counting problem, which we prove to be
W[2]-hard in the parameter k. This implies a “no free lunch” result: In order
to be fixed-parameter tractable, our general algorithm must rely on additional
properties that are specific to the considered class of structures. },

ABSTRACT = {The {\sc Colorful Motif} problem asks if, given a vertex-colored
graph $G$, there exists a subset $S$ of vertices of $G$ such
that the graph induced by $G$ on $S$ is connected and contains
every color in the graph exactly once. The problem is motivated
by applications in computational biology and is also
well-studied from the theoretical point of view. In particular,
it is known to be NP-complete even on trees of maximum degree
three~[Fellows et al, ICALP 2007]. In their pioneering paper
that introduced the color-coding technique, Alon et al.~[STOC
1995] show, {\em inter alia}, that the problem is FPT on general
graphs. More recently, Cygan et al.~[WG 2010] showed that {\sc
Colorful Motif} is NP-complete on {\em comb graphs}, a special
subclass of the set of trees of maximum degree three. They also
showed that the problem is not likely to admit polynomial
kernels on forests.
We continue the study of the kernelization
complexity of the {\sc Colorful Motif} problem restricted to
simple graph classes. Surprisingly, the infeasibility of
polynomial kernelization persists even when the input is
restricted to comb graphs. We demonstrate this by showing a
simple but novel composition algorithm. Further, we show that
the problem restricted to comb graphs admits polynomially many
polynomial kernels. To our knowledge, there are very few
examples of problems with many polynomial kernels known in the
literature. We also show hardness of polynomial kernelization
for certain variants of the problem on trees; this rules out a
general class of approaches for showing many polynomial kernels
for the problem restricted to trees. Finally, we show that the
problem is unlikely to admit polynomial kernels on another
simple graph class, namely the set of all graphs of diameter
two. As an application of our results, we settle the classical complexity of
\cds{} on graphs of diameter two --- specifically, we show that it is \NPC.},

ABSTRACT = {Range searching is among the most fundamental problems in computational
geometry. An n-element point set in Rd is given along with an assignment of
weights to these points from some commutative semigroup. Subject to a fixed
space of possible range shapes, the problem is to preprocess the points so that
the total semigroup sum of the points lying within a given query range η can be
determined quickly. In the approximate version of the problem we assume that η
is bounded, and we are given an approximation parameter $\varepsilon$ > 0. We are to
determine the semigroup sum of all the points contained within η and may
additionally include any of the points lying within distance $\varepsilon$ • diam(η) of η's
boundar.In this paper we contrast the complexity of range searching based on
semigroup properties. A semigroup (S,+) is idempotent if x + x = x for all x ∈
S, and it is integral if for all k ≥ 2, the k-fold sum x + ... + x is not equal
to x. For example, (R, min) and (0,1, ∨) are both idempotent, and (N, +) is
integral. To date, all upper and lower bounds hold irrespective of the
semigroup. We show that semigroup properties do indeed make a difference for
both exact and approximate range searching, and in the case of approximate
range searching the differences are dramatic.First, we consider exact halfspace
range searching. The assumption that the semigroup is integral allows us to
improve the best lower bounds in the semigroup arithmetic model. For example,
assuming O(n) storage in the plane and ignoring polylog factors, we provide an
Ω*(n2/5) lower bound for integral semigroups, improving upon the best lower
bound of Ω*(n1/3), thus closing the gap with the O(n1/2) upper bound.We also
consider approximate range searching for Euclidean ball ranges. We present
lower bounds and nearly matching upper bounds for idempotent semigroups. We
also present lower bounds for range searching for integral semigroups, which
nearly match existing upper bounds. These bounds show that the advantages
afforded by idempotency can result in major improvements. In particular,
assuming roughly linear space, the exponent in the $\varepsilon$-dependencies is smaller by
a factor of nearly 1/2. All our results are presented in terms of space-time
tradeoffs, and our lower and upper bounds match closely throughout the entire
spectrum.To our knowledge, our results provide the first proof that semigroup
properties affect the computational complexity of range searching in the
semigroup arithmetic model. These are the first lower bound results for any
approximate geometric retrieval problems. The existence of nearly matching
upper bounds, throughout the range of space-time tradeoffs, suggests that we
are close to resolving the computational complexity of both idempotent and
integral approximate spherical range searching in the semigroup arithmetic
model.},

graphs of bounded edge-asymmetry $\alpha$. The edge-asymmetry of a directed graph is
defined as the maximum ratio of the cost (weight) of antiparallel edges in the
graph. The problem has applications in multicast routing over a network with
non-symmetric links. We improve the previously known upper and lower bounds on
the competitive ratio of any deterministic algorithm due to Faloutsos et al. In
particular, we show that a better analysis of a simple greedy algorithm yields
a competitive ratio of O (min {k, $\alpha$ log k/log log $\alpha$}), where k denotes the
number of terminals requested. On the negative side, we show a lower bound of Ω
(min{k1-$\varepsilon$, $\alpha$ log k/log log k}) on the competitive ratio of every deterministic
algorithm for the problem, for any arbitrarily small constant $\varepsilon$.},

ABSTRACT = {It has been experimentally observed that LRU and variants thereof are the
preferred strategies for on-line paging. However, under most proposed
performance measures for on-line algorithms the performance of LRU is the same
as that of many other strategies which are inferior in practice. In this paper
we first show that any performance measure which does not include a partition
or implied distribution of the input sequences of a given length is unlikely to
distinguish between any two lazy paging algorithms as their performance is
identical in a very strong sense. This provides a theoretical justification for
the use of a more refined measure. Building upon the ideas of concave analysis
by Albers et al. [AFG05], we prove strict separation between LRU and all other
paging strategies. That is, we show that LRU is the unique optimum strategy for
paging under a deterministic model. This provides full theoretical backing to
the empirical observation that LRU is preferable in practice.},

ABSTRACT = {Algorithms are presented for the all-pairs min-cut problem in bounded
tree-width, planar and sparse networks. The approach used
is to preprocess the input $n$-vertex network so that, afterwards, the
value of a min-cut between any two vertices can be efficiently
computed. A tradeoff is shown between the preprocessing time and the time
taken to compute min-cuts subsequently. In particular, after
an $O(n\log n)$ preprocessing of a bounded tree-width network,
it is possible to find the value of a
min-cut between any two vertices in constant time. This implies that
for such networks the all-pairs min-cut problem can be solved
in time $O(n^2)$.
This algorithm is used in conjunction with a graph
decomposition technique of Frederickson to obtain algorithms for
sparse and planar networks. The running times depend upon a
topological property, $\gamma$, of the input network.
The parameter $\gamma$ varies between
1 and $\Theta(n)$; the algorithms perform well when $\gamma = o(n)$.
The value of a min-cut can be found in time $O(n + \gamma^2 \log
\gamma)$ and all-pairs min-cut can be solved in time $O(n^2 + \gamma^4
\log \gamma)$ for sparse networks. The corresponding running times
for planar networks are $O(n+\gamma \log \gamma)$ and $O(n^2 + \gamma^3
\log \gamma)$, respectively. The latter bounds depend on a result
of independent interest: outerplanar networks have small
``mimicking'' networks which are also outerplanar.},

ABSTRACT = {The Stoer–Wagner algorithm computes a minimum cut in a weighted undirected
graph. The algorithm works in n−1 phases, where n is the number of nodes of G.
Each phase takes time O(m+nlogn), where m is the number of edges of G, and
computes a pair of vertices s and t and a minimum cut separating s and t. We
show how to extend the algorithm such that each phase also computes a maximum
flow from s to t. The flow is computed in O(m) additional time and certifies
the cut computed in the phase.},

ABSTRACT = {Even though a large number of I/O-efficient graph algorithms
have been developed, a number of fundamental problems still
remain open. For example, no space- and I/O-efficient algorithms
are known for depth-first search or breadth-first search in sparse
graphs. In this paper we present two new results on I/O-efficient
depth-first search in an important class of sparse graphs, namely
undirected embedded planar graphs. We develop a new efficient
depth-first search algorithm and show how planar depth-first search
in general can be reduced to planar breadth-first search. As part
of the first result we develop the first I/O-efficient algorithm
for finding a simple cycle separator of a biconnected planar graph.
Together with other recent reducibility results, the second result
provides further evidence that external memory breadth-first search
is among the hardest problems on planar graphs.},

ABSTRACT = {In this paper we initiate a systematic study of a problem that
has the flavor of two classical problems, namely {\sc Coloring}
and {\sc Domination}, from the perspective of algorithms and
complexity. A {\it dominator coloring} of a graph $G$ is an
assignment of colors to the vertices of $G$ such that it is a
proper coloring and every vertex dominates all the vertices of
at least one color class. The minimum number of colors required
for a dominator coloring of $G$ is called the {\it dominator
chromatic number} of $G$ and is denoted by $\chi_d(G).$ In the
{\sc Dominator Coloring (DC)} problem, a graph $G$ and a
positive integer $k$ are given as input and the objective is to
check whether $\chi_d(G)\leq k$. We first show that unless P=NP,
DC cannot be solved in polynomial time on bipartite, planar, or
split graphs.
This resolves an open problem posed by Chellali and Maffray
[{\it Dominator Colorings in Some Classes of Graphs, Graphs and
Combinatorics, 2011}] about the polynomial time solvability of
DC on chordal graphs.
We then complement these hardness results by showing that the
problem is fixed parameter tractable (FPT) on chordal graphs and
in graphs which exclude a fixed apex graph as a
minor.},

ABSTRACT = {The range searching problem is a fundamental problem in computational geometry,
with numerous important applications. Most research has focused on solving this
problem exactly, but lower bounds show that if linear space is assumed, the
problem cannot be solved in polylogarithmic time, except for the case of
orthogonal ranges. In this paper we show that if one is willing to allow
approximate ranges, then it is possible to do much better. In particular, given
a bounded range Q of diameter w and >0, an approximate range query treats the
range as a fuzzy object, meaning that points lying within distance w of the
boundary of Q either may or may not be counted. We show that in any fixed
dimension d, a set of n points in can be preprocessed in O(n+logn) time and
O(n) space, such that approximate queries can be answered in O(logn(1/)d) time.
The only assumption we make about ranges is that the intersection of a range
and a d-dimensional cube can be answered in constant time (depending on
dimension). For convex ranges, we tighten this to O(logn+(1/)d-1) time. We also
present a lower bound for approximate range searching based on partition trees
of (logn+(1/)d-1), which implies optimality for convex ranges (assuming fixed
dimensions). Finally, we give empirical evidence showing that allowing small
relative errors can significantly
improve query execution times. },

PAGES = {1--13},
ABSTRACT = {We call a depth-$4$ formula $C$ {\em set-depth-$4$} if there exists a (unknown)
partition $X_1\sqcup\cdots\sqcup X_d$ of the variable indices $[n]$ that the
top product layer respects, i.e.~$C(\term{x})=\sum_{i=1}^k \prod_{j=1}^{d}$
$f_{i,j}(\term{x}_{X_j})$, where $f_{i,j}$ is a {\em sparse} polynomial in
$\F[\term{x}_{X_j}]$. Extending this definition to any depth - we call a
depth-$\D$ formula $C$ (consisting of alternating layers of $\Sigma$ and $\Pi$
gates, with a $\Sigma$-gate on top) a \emph{set-depth-$\D$} formula if every
$\Pi$-layer in $C$ respects a (unknown) partition on the variables; if $\D$ is
even then the product gates of the bottom-most $\Pi$-layer are allowed to
compute arbitrary monomials.
In this work, we give a hitting-set generator for set-depth-$\D$ formulas (over
\emph{any} field) with running time polynomial in $\exp((\D^2\log s)^{ \Delta -
1})$, where $s$ is the size bound on the input set-depth-$\D$ formula. In other
words, we give a {\em quasi}-polynomial time \emph{blackbox} polynomial
identity test for such constant-depth formulas. Previously, the very special
case of $\D=3$ (also known as {\em set-multilinear} depth-$3$ circuits) had no
known sub-exponential time hitting-set generator. This was declared as an open
problem by Shpilka \& Yehudayoff (FnT-TCS 2010); the model being first studied
by Nisan \& Wigderson (FOCS 1995) and recently by Forbes \& Shpilka (STOC 2012
\& ECCC TR12-115). Our work settles this question, not only for depth-$3$ but,
up to depth $\epsilon\log s / \log \log s$, for a fixed constant $\epsilon <
1$.
The technique is to investigate depth-$\D$ formulas via depth-$(\D-1)$ formulas
over a {\em Hadamard algebra}, after applying a `shift' on the variables. We
propose a new algebraic conjecture about the \emph{low-support
rank-concentration} in the latter formulas, and manage to prove it in the case
of set-depth-$\D$ formulas. },

ABSTRACT = { We present a single common tool to strictly subsume \emph{all} known cases
of polynomial time blackbox polynomial identity testing (PIT), that have been
hitherto solved using diverse tools and techniques, over fields of zero or
large characteristic. In particular, we show that polynomial time hitting-set
generators for identity testing of the two seemingly different and
well studied models - depth-$3$ circuits with bounded top fanin, and
constant-depth constant-read multilinear formulas - can be constructed using
one common algebraic-geometry theme: \emph{Jacobian} captures algebraic
independence. By exploiting the Jacobian, we design the {\em first} efficient
hitting-set generators for broad generalizations of the bove-mentioned models,
namely: \begin{itemize} \item depth-$3$ ($\Sigma \Pi \Sigma$) circuits with
constant \emph{transcendence degree} of the polynomials computed by the
product gates (\emph{no} bounded top fanin restriction), and \item
constant-depth constant-\emph{occur} formulas (\emph{no} multilinear
restriction). \end{itemize}
Constant-\emph{occur} of a variable, as we define it, is a much more
general concept than constant-read. Also, earlier work on the latter model
assumed that the formula is multilinear. Thus, our work goes further beyond
the related results obtained by Saxena \& Seshadhri (STOC 2011), Saraf \&
Volkovich (STOC 2011), Anderson et al.\ (CCC 2011), Beecken et al.\ (ICALP
2011) and Grenet et al.\ (FSTTCS 2011), and brings them under one unifying
technique.
In addition, using the same Jacobian based approach, we prove exponential
lower bounds for the immanant (which includes permanent and determinant) on
the \emph{same} depth-$3$ and depth-$4$ models for which we give efficient
PIT algorithms. Our results reinforce the intimate
connection between identity testing and lower bounds by exhibiting a concrete
mathematical tool - the Jacobian - that is equally effective in solving both
the problems on certain interesting and previously well-investigated (but not
well understood) models of computation.},

ABSTRACT = {A new technique was recently introduced by Bonifaci et al. for the analysis of
real-time systems scheduled on multiprocessor platforms by the global Earliest
Deadline First (EDF) scheduling algorithm. In this paper, this technique is
generalized so that it is applicable to the schedulability analysis of
real-time systems scheduled on multiprocessor platforms by any work-conserving
algorithm. The resulting analysis technique is applied to obtain a new
sufficient global Deadline Monotonic (DM) schedulability test. It is shown that
this new test is quantitatively superior to pre-existing DM schedulability
analysis tests; in addition, the degree of its deviation from any hypothetical
optimal scheduler (that may be clairvoyant) is quantitatively bounded. A new
global EDF schedulability test is also proposed here that builds on the results
of Bonifaci et al. This new test is shown to be less pessimistic and more
widely applicable than the earlier result was, while retaining the strong
theoretical properties of the earlier result. },

ABSTRACT = {Dimension reduction techniques have been a successful
avenue for automatically extracting the
“concepts” underlying unstructured data, a task
that naturally arises in fields as diverse as information
retrieval, image processing, social science,
etc. It is surprising how much can be achieved for
this task using only the raw data itself, without resorting
to any additional knowledge or intelligence.
We will survey the most important schemes contributed
from the various communities to date, by
commenting on the following aspects: optimization
techniques, the role of normalizations, setting the
parameters, computing time, quality of results, and
the integration of external knowledge.},

vertices, with high probability every nonmaximum matching has an augmenting
path of length O(log n). This implies that augmenting path algorithms like the
Hopcroft Karp algorithm for bipartite graphs and the Micali Vazirani algorithm
for general graphs, which have a worst case running time of O(mpn), run in time
O(mlog n) with high probability, where m is the number of edges in the graph.
Motwani proved these results for random graphs when the average degree is at
least ln(n) [Average Case Analysis of Algorithms for Matchings and Related
Problems, Journal of the ACM, 41(6), 1994]. Our results hold, if only the
average degree is a large enough constant. At the same time we simplify the

ABSTRACT = {We consider the following scheduling problem:
Our goal is to execute a given amount of
arbitrarily decomposable work on a distributed machine
as quickly as possible.
The work is maintained by a central scheduler
that can assign chunks of work of an arbitrary size
to idle processors.
The difficulty is that the processing time required for
a chunk is not exactly predictable---usually the less, the
larger the chunk---and that processors suffer a
delay for each assignment.
Our objective is to minimize the total wasted time of the schedule,
that is, the sum of all delays plus the idle times of processors
waiting for the last processor to finish.
We introduce a new deterministic model for this setting,
based on estimated ranges $[\alpha(w),\beta(w)]$ for processing times
of chunks of size $w$.
Depending on $\alpha$, $\beta$, and a measure for the overall
deviation from these estimates, we can prove matching
upper and lower bounds on the wasted time, the former being
achieved by our new \emph{balancing} strategy.
This is in sharp contrast with previous work that,
even under the strong assumption of independent,
approximately normally distributed chunk processing times,
proposed only heuristic scheduling schemes supported
merely by empirical evidence.
Our model naturally subsumes this stochastic setting, and
our generic analysis is valid for
most of the existing schemes too, proving them to be non-optimal.},

ABSTRACT = { We consider the problem of processing a given number of tasks on a given
number of processors as quickly as possible when only vague information
about the processing time of a task is available before it is completed.
Whenever a processor is idle, it can be assigned, at the price of a certain
overhead, a
portion, called a chunk, of the unassigned tasks. The goal is to
minimize the makespan, that is, the time that passes until all the tasks are
completed. The
difficulty then is to find the optimal tradeoff between the processors'
load balance, which is favoured by having small, and therefore many, chunks, and
the total scheduling overhead, which is lower when there are fewer
chunks. This scheduling problem has been the subject of intensive research in
the
past, and a large variety of heuristics have been proposed. Its
mathematical analysis, however, turned out to be difficult even for simplistic
models of the
vague-information issue, and little theoretical work has been presented
to date. In this work we present a novel theoretical model that covers a
multitude of natural vague-information scenarios, and for which we can
prove general upper and lower bounds on the achievable makespan. From
this we derive optimal bounds and algorithms for a whole variety of
specific scenarios, including the modelling of task processing times as
independent,
identically distributed random variables, which guided the design of
most of the previously existing heuristics. Unlike traditional approaches, our
model
neither ignores a priori knowledge of the input (the processing times)
nor does it restrict the distribution of the input, but instead works with the
concepts
of an a priori estimate of the processing times, which is implicit in
every algorithm, and a measure for the deviation of this estimate from the
actual
processing times, which is not known until all the tasks are completed.},

We describe a simple and elegant generic algorithm that, in a very
general model, always comes surprisingly close to the theoretical optimum,
and the performance of which we can analyze exactly with respect to constant
factors. In contrast, we prove that algorithms that assign tasks
in equal-sized portions
perform far from optimal in general. In fact, we give evidence that the
performance of our generic scheme cannot be improved by any constant factor
without sacrificing the simplicity of the algorithm. We also give lower
bounds on the performance of the various decreasing-size heuristics that
have typically been used so far in concrete applications.},

ABSTRACT = { We consider the following spelling variants clustering problem: Given a list
of distinct words, called lexicon, compute (possibly overlapping) clusters of
words which are spelling variants of each other. This problem naturally
arises
in the context of error-tolerant full-text search of the following kind: For
a given query, return not only documents matching the query words exactly but
also those matching their spelling variants. This is the inverse of the
well-known "Did you mean: ... ?" web search engine feature, where the error
tolerance is on the side of the query, and not on the side of the documents.
We combine various ideas from the large body of literature on approximate
string searching and spelling correction techniques to a new algorithm for the
spelling variants clustering problem that is both accurate and very efficient
in time and space. Our largest lexicon, containing roughly 10 million words,
can be processed in about 16 minutes on a standard PC using 10 MB of
additional space. This beats the previously best scheme by a factor of two in
running time and by a factor of more than ten in space usage. We have
integrated our algorithms into the CompleteSearch engine in a way that
achieves error-tolerant search without significant blowup in neither index
size
nor query processing time.},

TITLE = {Efficient Index-Based Snippet Generation},
YEAR = {2011},
NOTE = {unpublished},
ABSTRACT = { Ranked result lists with query-dependent snippets have become state of the art
in text search. They are typically implemented by searching, at query time,
for occurrences of the query words in the top-ranked documents. This
\emph{document-based} approach has three inherent problems: (i) when a
document is indexed by terms which it does not contain literally (e.g.,
related words or spelling variants), localization of the corresponding
snippets becomes problematic; (ii) each query operator (e.g., phrase or
proximity search) has to be implemented twice, on the index side in order to
compute the correct result set, and on the snippet generation side to generate
the appropriate snippets; and (iii) in a worst case, the whole document needs
to be scanned for occurrences of the query words, which is problematic for
very long documents.
We present a new \emph{index-based} method that localizes snippets by
information solely computed from the index, and that overcomes all three
problems. Unlike previous index-based methods, we show how to achieve this at
essentially no extra cost in query processing time, by a technique we call
\emph{query rotation}. We also show how our index-based method allows the
caching of individual segments instead of complete documents, which enables a
significantly larger cache hit ratio as compared to the document-based
approach. We have fully integrated our implementation with the CompleteSearch
engine.},

between terms. We give a precise mathematical criterion for distinguishing
between four kinds of relations of a given pair of terms of a given collection:
unrelated (car - fruit), symmetrically related (car - automobile),
asymmetrically related with the first term being more specific than the second
(banana - fruit), and asymmetrically related in the other direction (fruit -
banana). We give theoretical evidence for the soundness of our criterion, by
showing that in a simplified mathematical model the criterion does the
apparently right thing. We applied our scheme to the reconstruction of a
selected part of the open directory project (ODP) hierarchy, with promising
results. },

feature: for a fixed document collection, given a set D of documents, and an
alphabetical range W of words, compute the set of all word-in-document pairs (w
,d) from the collection such that w ∈W and d∈D. We present a new data structure
with the help of which such autocompletion queries can be processed, on the
average, in time linear in the input plus output size, independent of the size
of the underlying document collection. At the same time, our data structure
uses no more space than an inverted index. Actual query processing times on a
large test collection correlate almost perfectly with our theoretical bound.},

spectral retrieval work in practice.
%
We show that LSI and many of its variants can be equivalently viewed as a
particular document expansion (not query expansion) process, where each term
effects the insertion of some other term if and only if the synonymy graph for
that term pair has a certain characteristic shape. We provide a simple,
parameterless algorithm for detecting that shape.
%
We point out inherent problems of every algorithm that bases its expansion
decisions merely on individual values of the synonymy graph, as done by almost
all existing methods. Our new algorithm overcomes these limitations, and it
consistently outperforms previous methods on a number of test collections.
%
Our synonymy graphs also shed light on the effectiveness of three fundamental
types of variations of the basic LSI scheme.},

ABSTRACT = {Top-$k$ query processing is an important building block for ranked retrieval,
with applications ranging from text and data integration to distributed
aggregation of network logs and sensor data.
Top-$k$ queries operate on index lists for a query's elementary conditions
and aggregate scores for result candidates. One of the best implementation
methods in this setting is the family of threshold algorithms, which aim
to terminate the index scans as early as possible based on lower and upper
bounds for the final scores of result candidates. This procedure
performs sequential disk accesses for sorted index scans, but also has the
option
of performing random accesses to resolve score uncertainty. This entails
scheduling for the two kinds of accesses: 1) the prioritization of different
index lists in the sequential accesses, and 2) the decision on when to perform
random accesses and for which candidates.
The prior literature has studied some of these scheduling issues, but only for
each of the two access types in isolation.
The current paper takes an integrated view of the scheduling issues and develops
novel strategies that outperform prior proposals by a large margin.
Our main contributions are new, principled, scheduling methods based on a
Knapsack-related
optimization for sequential accesses and a cost model for random accesses.
The methods can be further boosted by harnessing probabilistic estimators for
scores,
selectivities, and index list correlations.
In performance experiments with three different datasets (TREC Terabyte, HTTP
server logs, and IMDB),
our methods achieved significant performance gains compared to the best
previously known methods.},

feature: as the user is typing the query, words that are related to the last

such hits. The realization has three parts: (i) building clusters of related
terms, (ii) adding this information as artificial words to the index such that
(iii) the described feature reduces to an instance of prefix search and
completion. An efficient solution for the latter is provided by the
CompleteSearch engine, with which we have integrated the proposed feature. For
building the clusters of related terms we propose a variant of latent semantic
indexing that, unlike standard approaches, is completely transparent to the
user. By experiments on two large test-collections, we demonstrate that the
feature is provided at only a slight increase in query processing time and
index size.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider the problem of processing a given number of tasks on
a given number of processors as quickly as possible when the
processing times of the tasks are variable and not known in advance.
The tasks are assigned to the processors in chunks consisting
of several tasks at a time, and the difficulty lies in finding
the optimal tradeoff between the processors' load balance, which
is favoured by having small chunks, and the total scheduling overhead,
which will be the lower the fewer chunks there are.
Our studies are motivated by a practical problem from
high-performance computing, namely parallel-loop scheduling,
for which a large variety of heuristics have been proposed
in the past, but hardly any rigorous analysis has been presented to date.
Our work is based on a generic approach that covers
the whole spectrum of processing time irregularity.
This approach does not make any assumptions about task processing times,
but instead works with estimated ranges for processing times,
one for each chunk size, and a measure for the overall deviation of
the actual processing times from these estimates.
Our analysis provides a general upper bound applicable
for every conceivable setting of these parameters, together with lower
bounds showing that no algorithm can do significantly better than
the ones we propose.
Our general result implies optimal bounds for a
whole variety of specific settings, including the modelling of
task processing times as independent, identically
distributed random variables, which underlies most of the
previously existing heuristics.
Our results confirm the practicability of certain
well-established techniques for parallel-loop scheduling,
while, on the other hand, revealing major flaws in other approaches.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider the following full-text search autocompletion feature. Imagine a
user of a search engine typing a query. Then with every letter being typed, we
would like an instant display of completions of the last query word which would
lead to good hits. At the same time, the best hits for any of these completions
should be displayed. Known indexing data structures that apply to this problem
either incur large processing times for a substantial class of queries, or they
use a lot of space. We present a new indexing data structure that uses no more
space than a state-of-the-art compressed inverted index, but with 10 times
faster query processing times. Even on the large TREC Terabyte collection,
which comprises over 25 million documents, we achieve, on a single machine and
with the index on disk, average response times of one tenth of a second. We
have built a full-fledged, interactive search engine that realizes the proposed
autocompletion feature combined with support for proximity search,
semi-structured (XML) text, subword and phrase completion, and semantic tags.},

ABSTRACT = {We describe CompleteSearch, an interactive search engine that offers the user a
variety of complex features, which at first glance have little in common, yet
are all provided via one and the same highly optimized core mechanism. This
mechanism answers queries for what we call context-sensitive prefix search and
completion: given a set of documents and a word range, compute all words from
that range which are contained in one of the given documents, as well as those
of the given documents which contain a word from the given range.
Among the supported features are: (i) automatic query completion, for example,
find all completions of the prefix “seman” that occur in the context of the
word “ontology”, as well as the best hits for any such completion; (ii)
semi-structured (XML) retrieval, for example, find all emailmessages with
“dbworld” in the subject line; (iii) semantic search, for example, find all
politicians which had a private audience with the pope; (iv) DB-style joins and
grouping, for example, find the most prolific authors with at least one paper
in both “SIGMOD” and “SIGIR”; and (v) arbitrary combinations of these.
The prefix search and completion mechanism of Complete- Search is realized via
a novel kind of index data structure, which enables subsecond query processing
times for collections up to a terabyte of data, on a single PC. We report on a
number of lessons learned in the process of building the system and on our
experience with a number of publicly used deployments.},

ABSTRACT = {Let G = (V,E) be an undirected weighted graph on |V | = n vertices and |E| = m
edges. A t-spanner of the graph G, for any t 1, is a subgraph (V,ES), ES E,
such that the distance between any pair of vertices in the subgraph is at most
t times the distance between them in the graph G. Computing a t-spanner of
minimum size (number of edges) has been a widely studied and well-motivated
problem in computer science. In this paper we present the first linear time
randomized algorithm that computes a t-spanner of a given weighted graph.
Moreover, the size of the t-spanner computed essentially matches the worst case
lower bound implied by a 43-year old girth lower bound conjecture made
independently by Erds, Bollob{\'a}s, and Bondy \& Simonovits.Our algorithm uses a
novel clustering approach that avoids any distance computation altogether. This
feature is somewhat surprising since all the previously existing algorithms
employ computation of some sort of local or global distance information, which
involves growing either breadth first search trees up to (t)-levels or full
shortest path trees on a large fraction of vertices. The truly local approach
of our algorithm also leads to equally simple and efficient algorithms for
computing spanners in other important computational environments like
distributed, parallel, and external memory. © 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

ABSTRACT = {For the earliest arrival flow problem one is given a network $G=(V,
A)$ with capacities $u(a)$ and transit times $\tau(a)$ on its arcs $a
\in A$, together with a source and a sink vertex $s, t \in V$. The
objective is to send flow from $s$ to $t$ that moves through the
network over time, such that for each point in time $\theta \in
[0,T)$ the maximum possible amount of flow reaches $t$. If, for
each $\theta \in [0,T)$ this flow is a maximum flow for time horizon
$\theta$, then it is called \emph{earliest arrival flow}. In
practical applications a higher congestion of an arc in the network
often implies a considerable increase in transit time. Therefore,
in this paper we study the earliest arrival problem for the case
that the transit time of each arc in the network at each time
$\theta$ depends on the flow on this particular arc at that time
$\theta$.
For constant transit times it has been shown by Gale that earliest
arrival flows exist for any network. We give examples, showing that
this is no longer true for flow-dependent transit times. For that
reason we define an optimization version of this problem where the
objective is to find flows that are almost earliest arrival flows.
In particular, we are interested in flows that, for each $\theta \in
[0,T)$, need only $\alpha$-times longer to send the maximum flow to
the sink. We give both constant lower and upper bounds on $\alpha$;
furthermore, we present a constant factor approximation algorithm
for this problem. Finally, we give some computational results to
show the practicability of the designed approximation algorithm.},

ABSTRACT = {This article introduces the sum of weights of distinct values
constraint, which can be seen as a generalization of the number of
distinct values as well as of the alldifferent, and the relaxed
alldifferent constraints. This constraint holds if a cost variable is
equal to the sum of the weights associated to the distinct values taken
by a given set of variables. For the first aspect, which is related to
domination, we present four filtering algorithms. Two of them lead to
perfect pruning when each domain variable consists of one set of
consecutive values, while the two others take advantage of holes in the
domains. For the second aspect, which is connected to maximum matching
in a bipartite graph, we provide a complete filtering algorithm for the
general case. Finally we introduce several generic deduction rules,
which link both aspects of the constraint. These rules can be applied to
other optimization constraints such as the minimum weight alldifferent
constraint or the global cardinality constraint with costs. They also
allow taking into account external constraints for getting enhanced
bounds for the cost variable. In practice, the sum of weights of
distinct values constraint occurs in assignment problems where using a
resource once or several times costs the same. It also captures
domination problems where one has to select a set of vertices in order
to control every vertex of a graph.},

ABSTRACT = {Transformations of geometric objects, like translation and rotation,
are fundamental operations in CAD-systems. Rotations trigger
the need to deal with trigonometric functions, which is hard to
achieve when aiming for exact and robust implementation.
We show how we efficiently compute the planar arrangement
of conics rotated by angles that can be constructed
with straightedge and compass. Well-known examples are multiples of
$45{^{\circ}}$, $30{^{\circ}}$, and $15{^{\circ}}$.
The main problem one has to solve is root-isolation of univariate
polynomials $p(x)\in \mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{c_1})\ldots(\sqrt{c_d})[x]$, for which
we use a modified version of the Descartes method.
For $d=1$,
%In the case $p(x)\in \mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{c})[x]$
we additionally present a new method that isolates the real roots
of $p$ by using root isolation for polynomials $q(x)\in\mathbb{Q}[x]$ only.
We show results of our benchmark experiences comparing both
methods.},

ABSTRACT = {In this paper, we present the first average-case analysis proving an expected
polynomial running time for an exact algorithm for the 0/1 knapsack problem.
In particular, we prove, for various input distributions, that the number of
{\em dominating solutions\/} (i.e., Pareto-optimal knapsack fillings)
to this problem is polynomially bounded in the number of available items.
An algorithm by Nemhauser and Ullmann can enumerate these solutions very
efficiently so that a polynomial upper bound on the number of dominating
solutions
implies an algorithm with expected polynomial running time.
The random input model underlying our analysis is very general
and not restricted to a particular input distribution. We assume adversarial
weights and randomly drawn profits (or vice versa). Our analysis covers general
probability
distributions with finite mean, and, in its most general form, can even
handle different probability distributions for the profits of different items.
This feature enables us to study the effects of correlations between profits
and weights. Our analysis confirms and explains practical studies showing
that so-called {\em strongly correlated\/} instances are harder to solve than
{\em weakly correlated\/} ones.},

ABSTRACT = {We study the average-case performance of algorithms for the binary knapsack
problem.
Our focus lies on the analysis of so-called {\em core algorithms}, the
predominant
algorithmic concept used in practice.
These algorithms start with the computation of an optimal fractional solution
that has only one fractional item and then they exchange items until an optimal
integral solution is found.
The idea is that in many cases the optimal integral solution should be close to
the fractional
one such that only a few items need to be exchanged.
Despite the well known hardness of the knapsack problem on worst-case instances,
practical studies show that knapsack core algorithms can solve large scale
instances very efficiently.
For example, they exhibit almost linear running time on purely random inputs.
In this paper, we present the first theoretical result on the running time of
core algorithms that comes close to the results observed in practical
experiments.
We prove an upper bound of
$O(n \, \polylog(n))$ on the expected running time of a core algorithm on
instances with $n$ items whose profits and weights are drawn independently,
uniformly at random.
A previous analysis on the average-case complexity of the knapsack problem
proves
a running time of $O(n^4)$, but for a different kind of algorithms.
The previously best known upper bound on the running time of core
algorithms is polynomial as well. The degree of this polynomial, however, is
at least a large three digit number. In addition to uniformly random instances,
we
investigate harder instances in which profits and weights are pairwise
correlated.
For this kind of instances, we can prove a tradeoff describing how the degree of
correlation influences the running time.},

ABSTRACT = {We study algorithmic questions concerning a basic
microeconomic congestion game in which there is a single provider
that offers a service to a set of potential customers. Each
customer has a particular demand of service and the behavior of
the customers is determined by utility functions that are
non-increasing in the congestion. Customers decide whether to join
or leave the service based on the experienced congestion and the
offered prices. Following standard game theory, we
assume each customer behaves in the most rational way. If the
prices of service are fixed, then such a customer behavior leads
to a pure, not necessarily unique Nash equilibrium among the
customers. In order to evaluate marketing strategies, the service
provider is interested in estimating its revenue under the best and
worst customer equilibria. We study the complexity of this problem
under different models of information available to the provider.
%
\begin{itemize}
\item We first consider the classical model in which the provider
has perfect knowledge of the behavior of all customers. We present
a complete characterization of the \emph{complexity of computing
optimal pricing strategies} and of \emph{computing best and worst
equilibria}. Basically, we show that most of these problems are
inapproximable in the worst case but admit an
``average-case FPAS.'' Our average case analysis covers general
distributions for customer demands and utility thresholds.
We generalize our analysis to robust equilibria
in which players change their strategies only when this promises
a significant utility improvement.
%
\item We extend our analysis to a more realistic model in which
the provider has \emph{incomplete information}. Following the game
theoretic framework of Bayesian games introduced by Harsanyi, we
assume that the provider is aware of probability distributions
describing the behavior of the customers and aims at estimating
its expected revenue under best and worst equilibria. Somewhat
counterintuitive, we obtain an FPRAS for the equilibria problem
in the model with imperfect information although the problem with
perfect information is inapproximable under the worst case measures.
In particular, the worst case complexity of the considered
stochastic equilibria problems increases with the precision of the
available knowledge.

Our analysis is centered around structural properties of binary optimization
problems, called {\em winner}, {\em loser}, and {\em feasibility gaps}. We
show, when the coefficients of the objective function and/or some of the
constraints are stochastic, then there usually exist a polynomial
$n^{-\Omega(1)}$ gap between the best and the second best solution as well as
a polynomial slack to the boundary of the constraints. Similar to the
condition number for linear programming, these gaps describe the sensitivity
of the optimal solution to slight perturbations of the input and
can be used to bound the necessary accuracy as well as the complexity
for solving an instance. We exploit the gaps in form of an
adaptive rounding scheme increasing the accuracy of calculation until the
optimal solution is found. The strength of our techniques is illustrated by
applications to various \npc-hard optimization problems from mathematical
programming, network design, and scheduling for which we obtain the the first

ABSTRACT = {We present the first average-case analysis proving a polynomial upper bound
on the expected running time of an exact algorithm for the 0/1 knapsack problem.
In particular, we prove for various input distributions, that the number of
Pareto-optimal knapsack fillings is polynomially bounded in the number of availa
ble items.
An algorithm by Nemhauser and Ullmann can enumerate these solutions very
efficiently so that a polynomial upper bound on the number of Pareto-optimal sol
utions
implies an algorithm with expected polynomial running time.
The random input model underlying our analysis is quite general
and not restricted to a particular input distribution. We assume adversarial
weights and randomly drawn profits (or vice versa). Our analysis covers general
probability
distributions with finite mean and, in its most general form, can even
handle different probability distributions for the profits of different items.
This feature enables us to study the effects of correlations between profits
and weights. Our analysis confirms and explains practical studies showing
that so-called {\em strongly correlated\/} instances are harder to solve than
{\em weakly correlated\/} ones.},

Our analysis is centered around structural properties of binary optimization

that if the coefficients of the objective function are stochastic, then the
gap between the best and second best solution is likely to be of order
$\Omega(1/n)$. Furthermore, we show that if the coefficients of the constraints

ABSTRACT = {The size of the Pareto curve for the bicriteria version of the knapsack
problem is polynomial on average. This has been shown for various random input
distributions. We experimentally investigate the number of Pareto points for
knapsack instances over $n$ elements whose profits and weights are chosen at
random according to various classes of input distributions. The numbers
observed in our experiments are significantly smaller than the known upper
bounds. For example, the upper bound for so-called uniform instances is
$O(n^3)$. Based on our experiments, we conjecture that the number of Pareto
points for these instances is only $\Theta(n^2)$. We also study other
structural properties for random knapsack instances that have been used in
theoretical studies to bound the average-case complexity of the knapsack
problem.
Furthermore, we study advanced algorithmic techniques for the knapsack
problem. In particular, we review several ideas that originate from theory as
well as from practice. Most of the concepts that we use are simple and have
been known since at least 20 years, but apparently have not been used in this
combination. Surprisingly, the result of our study is a very competitive code
that outperforms the best previous implementation \emph{Combo} by orders of
magnitude for various classes of random instances, including harder random
knapsack instances in which profits and weights are chosen in a correlated
fashion.},

ABSTRACT = {We present a certified and complete algorithm to compute arrangements of real
planar algebraic curves. It computes the decomposition of the plane induced by
a finite number of algebraic curves in terms of a cylindrical algebraic
decomposition. From a high-level perspective, the overall method splits into
two main subroutines, namely an algorithm denoted BiSolve to isolate the real
solutions of a zero-dimensional bivariate system, and an algorithm denoted
GeoTop to compute the topology of a single algebraic curve.
Compared to existing approaches based on elimination techniques, we
considerably improve the corresponding lifting steps in both subroutines. As a
result, generic position of the input system is never assumed, and thus our
algorithm never demands for any change of coordinates. In addition, we
significantly limit the types of symbolic operations involved, that is, we only
use resultant and gcd computations as purely symbolic operations. The latter
results are achieved by combining techniques from different fields such as
(modular) symbolic computation, numerical analysis and algebraic geometry.
We have implemented our algorithms as prototypical contributions to the
C++-project CGAL. We exploit graphics hardware to expedite the remaining
symbolic computations. We have also compared our implementation with the
current reference implementations, that is, LGP and Maple’s Isolate for
polynomial system solving, and CGAL’s bivariate algebraic kernel for analyses
and arrangement computations of algebraic curves. For various series of
challenging instances, our exhaustive experiments show that the new
implementations outperform the existing ones.},

ABSTRACT = {We introduce a general framework for processing a set of curves
defined on a continuous two-dimensional parametric surface, while
sweeping the parameter space. A major goal of our work is to
maximize code reuse in implementing algorithms that employ the
prevalent sweep-line paradigm, and consequently to minimize the
effort needed to extend the implementation of the paradigm to
various surfaces and families of curves embedded on them. We show
how the sweep-line paradigm is used to construct an arrangement of
curves embedded on an orientable parametric surface, and explain how
the arrangement package of {\sc cgal}, which previously handled only
arrangements of bounded planar curves, is extended to handle curves
embedded on a general surface. To the best of our knowledge, this
is the first software implementation of generic algorithms that can
handle arrangements on general parametric surfaces.},

ABSTRACT = {Let $G=(V,E)$ be an unweighted undirected graph on $n$ vertices.
Let $\delta(u,v)$ denote the distance between vertices $u,v\inV$.
An algorithm is said to compute all-pairs $t$-approximate shortest
-paths/distances, for some $t\ge 1$, if for each pair of vertices
$u,v\in V$, the path/distance reported by the algorithm is not longer/greater
than $t\delta(u,v)$.\\
This paper presents two randomized algorithms for computing all-pairs nearly
2-approximate shortest distances.
The first algorithm takes expected $O(m^{2/3}n\log n + n^2)$ time, and for any
$u,v\in V$ reports distance no greater than $2\delta(u,v)+1$.
Our second algorithm requires expected $O(n^2\log^{3/2} n)$
time, and for any $u,v\in V$, reports distance bounded by $2\delta(u,v) + 3$.\\
This paper also presents the first expected $O(n^2)$ time algorithm to compute
all-pairs 3-approximate distances. },

ABSTRACT = {Given an arbitrary polygon with $n$ vertices, we wish to partition it
into $p$ connected pieces of given areas. The problem is motivated by a
robotics application in which the polygon is a workspace that is to be
divided among $p$ robots performing a terrain-covering task. We show that
finding an area partitioning with minimal cut length is NP-hard in the number
of pieces and that it is even hard to approximate to within any factor that
is independent of the shape of the polygon.
We then present a simple $O(pn)$-time algorithm that produces
non-optimal, but often quite reasonable, area partitionings for arbitrary
polygons.},

set $P=\{p_1,\dots,p_n\}$ of quadric surfaces the
planar map induced by all intersection curves
$p_1\cap p_i$, $2\leq i\leq n$, running on the
surface of $p_1$. The vertices in this graph are the
singular and $x$-extreme points of the curves as well
as all intersection points of pairs of curves. Two
vertices are connected by an edge if the underlying
points are connected by a branch of one of the curves.
Our work is based on and extends ideas developed
in~[20] and~[9].
Our implementation is {\em complete} in the sense
that it can handle all kind of inputs including all
degenerate ones where intersection curves have
singularities or pairs of curves intersect with
high multiplicity. It is {\em exact} in that it
always computes the mathematical correct result.
It is {\em efficient} measured in running times.},

We compute a stratification $\Omega_S$ of $S$ into $O(N^5)$ nonsingular cells,
including the complete adjacency information between these cells.
This is done by a projection approach.
We construct a special planar arrangement $\mathcal{A}_S$
with fewer cells than a cad in the projection plane.
Furthermore, our approach applies numerical and combinatorial methods to
minimize costly symbolic computations. The algorithm handles all sorts of
degeneracies without transforming the surface into a generic position.
Based on $\Omega_S$ we also compute a simplicial complex
which is isotopic to~$S$.
A complete C++-implementation of the stratification algorithm is presented.
It shows good performance for many well-known examples from algebraic geometry.},

ABSTRACT = {We present a new representation for individuals in problems that have cyclic

To demonstrate its usefulness, we analyze a simple randomized local search and
a (1+1) evolutionary algorithm for the Eulerian cycle problem utilizing this
representation.
Both have an expected run-time of $\Theta(m^2 \log(m))$, where $m$ denotes the
number of edges of the input graph.
This clearly beats previous solutions, which all have an expected optimization
time of $\Theta(m^3)$ or worse (PPSN~'06, CEC~'04).
We are optimistic that our representation also allows superior solutions for
other cyclic permutation problems.
For NP-complete ones like the TSP, however, other means than theoretical
run-time analyses are necessary.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider the single-source many-targets shortest-path (SSMTSP) problem in
directed graphs with non-negative
edge weights. A source node $s$ and a target set $T$ is specified and the goal
is to compute a shortest path from $s$ to a node in $T$.
Our interest in the shortest path problem with many targets stems from its use
in weighted bipartite matching algorithms. A weighted bipartite matching in a
graph with $n$ nodes on each side reduces to $n$ SSMTSP problems, where the
number
of targets varies between $n$ and $1$.
The SSMTSP problem can be solved by Dijkstra's algorithm. We describe a
heuristic
that leads to a significant improvement in running time for the weighted
matching
problem; in our experiments a speed-up by up to a factor of 12 was achieved.
We also present a partial analysis that gives some theoretical support for our
experimental findings. },

the Hopcroft--Karp algorithm for bipartite graphs and the Micali--Vazirani
algorithm for general graphs, which have a worst case running time of
$O(m\sqrt{n})$, run in time $O(m \log n)$ with high probability, where $m$ is
the number of edges in the graph. Motwani proved these results for random
graphs when the average degree is at least $\ln (n)$ [\emph{Average Case
Analysis of Algorithms for Matchings and Related Problems}, Journal of the ACM,
\textbf{41}(6), 1994]. Our results hold, if only the average degree is a large
enough constant. At the same time we simplify the analysis of Motwani.},

ABSTRACT = {In the next century, virtual laboratories will play a key role in
biotechnology. Computer experiments will not only replace
time-consuming and expensive real-world experiments, but they will also
provide insights that cannot be obtained using ``wet'' experiments.
The field that deals with the modeling of atoms, molecules, and their
reactions is called Molecular Modeling. The advent of
Life Sciences gave rise to numerous new developments in this
area. However, the implementation of new simulation tools is extremely
time-consuming. This is mainly due to the large amount of
supporting code (e.g. for data import/export, visualization, and so on)
that is required in addition to the code necessary to implement the new idea.
The
only way to reduce the development time is to reuse reliable code,
preferably using object-oriented approaches. We have designed and
implemented BALL, the first object-oriented application framework for rapid
prototyping in Molecular Modeling. By the use
of the composite design pattern and polymorphism we were able to model
the multitude of complex biochemical concepts in a well-structured and
comprehensible class hierarchy, the BALL kernel classes. The
isomorphism between the biochemical structures and the kernel classes
leads to an intuitive interface. Since BALL was designed for rapid software
prototyping, ease of use and flexibility were our principal design
goals. Besides the kernel classes, BALL provides fundamental
components for import/export of data in various file formats,
Molecular Mechanics simulations, three-dimensional visualization, and
more complex ones like a numerical solver for the Poisson-Boltzmann
equation. The usefulness of BALL was shown by the
implementation of an algorithm that checks proteins for
similarity. Instead of the five months that an earlier implementation
took, we were able to implement it within a day using BALL. },

ABSTRACT = {We investigate the impact of \emph{Stackelberg routing} to reduce the price of
anarchy in network routing games. In this setting, an $\alpha$ fraction of the
entire demand is first routed centrally according to a predefined
\emph{Stackelberg strategy} and the remaining demand is then routed selfishly
by (nonatomic) players. Although several advances have been made recently in
proving that Stackelberg routing can in fact significantly reduce the price of
anarchy for certain network topologies, the central question of whether this
holds true in general is still open. We answer this question negatively by
constructing a family of single-commodity instances such that every Stackelberg
strategy induces a price of anarchy that grows linearly with the size of the
network.
Moreover, we prove upper bounds on the price of anarchy of the
Largest-Latency-First (LLF) strategy that only depend on the size of the
network. Besides other implications, this rules out the possibility to
construct constant-size networks to prove an unbounded price of anarchy.
In light of this negative result, we consider bicriteria bounds. We develop an
efficiently computable Stackelberg strategy that induces a flow whose cost is
at most the cost of an optimal flow with respect to demands scaled by a factor
of $1 + \sqrt{1-\alpha}$.
Finally, we analyze the effectiveness of an easy-to-implement Stackelberg
strategy, called SCALE. We prove bounds for a general class of latency
functions that includes polynomial latency functions as a special case. Our
analysis is based on an approach which is simple, yet powerful enough to obtain
(almost) tight bounds for SCALE in general networks.},

We show that, even in the uniprocessor case, no polynomial time algorithm can
test the feasibility of a task system within a constant speedup bound, unless
$\ccp=\ccnp$. This result contrasts with recent results for sporadic task
systems. For two special cases, synchronous task systems and systems with a
constant number of different task types, we provide the first polynomial time
constant-speedup feasibility tests for multiprocessor platforms. Furthermore,
we show that the problem of testing feasibility is coNP-hard for synchronous
multiprocessor tasks systems. The complexity of some of these problems has been
open for a long time.
We also propose a profit maximization variant of the feasibility
problem, where every task has a non-negative profit, and the goal is to find a
subset of tasks that can be scheduled feasibly with maximum profit. We give the
first constant-speed, constant-approximation algorithm for the case of
synchronous task systems, together with related hardness results.},

requirements; some systems may be required to meet multiple sets of
certification requirements, from different certification authorities.
Certification requirements in such ``mixed-criticality'' systems give rise to
interesting scheduling
problems, that cannot be satisfactorily addressed using techniques from
conventional scheduling theory. In this paper, we study a formal model for
representing such mixed-criticality workloads. We demonstrate first the
intractability of determining whether a system specified in this model can be
scheduled to meet all its certification requirements, even for systems subject
to two sets of certification requirements. Then we quantify, via the metric of
processor speedup factor, the effectiveness of two techniques,
reservation-based scheduling and priority-based scheduling, that are widely
used in scheduling such mixed-criticality systems, showing that the latter of
the two is superior to the former. We also show that the speedup factors are
tight for these two techniques.},

the objective of minimizing average flow times of data packets. We prove a
lower bound of $\Omega(n)$ on the expected competitive ratio of any
acknowledgment-based distributed algorithm minimizing the maximum flow time,
where $n$ is the number of nodes of the network. Next, we consider a
distributed algorithm which sends packets over shortest paths, and we use
resource augmentation to analyze its performance when the objective is to
minimize the average flow time. If interferences are modeled as in Bar-Yehuda
et al. [R. Bar-Yehuda, O. Goldreich, A. Itai, On the time complexity of
broadcast in multi-hop radio networks: an exponential gap between determinism
and randomization, Journal of Computer and Systems Sciences 45 (1) (1992) 104–

algorithm sends packets a factor $O(\log(\delta/\epsilon) \log \Delta)$ faster
than the optimal off-line solution; here $\delta$ is the radius of the network
and $\Delta$ the maximum degree. We finally extend this result to a more

packets. We then assess the performance of two natural algorithms by proving
that their cost remains within the optimal cost of the respective problem if we
allow the algorithms to transmit data at a speed 5 times higher than that of
the optimal solutions to which we compare them.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider the scheduling of mixed-criticality task systems, that is, systems
where each task to be scheduled has multiple levels of worst-case execution
time estimates. We design a scheduling algorithm, EDF-VD, whose effectiveness
we analyze using the processor speedup metric: we show that any 2-level task
system that is schedulable on a unit-speed processor is correctly scheduled by
EDF-VD using speed $\phi$; here $\phi < 1.619$ is the golden ratio. We also
show how to generalize the algorithm to $K > 2$ criticality levels. We finally
consider 2-level instances on $m$ identical machines. We prove speedup bounds
for scheduling an independent collection of jobs and for the partitioned
scheduling of a 2-level task system. },

ABSTRACT = {A matrix~$M$ over a fixed alphabet is $k$-anonymous if every row
in~$M$ has at least~$k-1$ identical copies in~$M$. Making a matrix
$k$-anonymous by replacing a minimum number of entries with an additional
$\star$-symbol (called ``suppressing entries'') is known to be
NP-hard. This task arises in the context of privacy-preserving
publishing. We propose and analyze the computational complexity
of an enhanced anonymization model where the user of the
$k$-anonymized data may additionally ``guide'' the selection of
the candidate matrix entries to be suppressed. The basic idea is
to express this by means of ``pattern vectors'' which are part
of the input. This can also be interpreted as a sort of
clustering process. It is motivated by the observation that
the ``value'' of matrix entries may significantly differ, and
losing one (by suppression) may be more harmful than losing
the other, which again may very much depend on the intended use of the
anonymized data. We show that already very basic special cases
of our new model lead to NP-hard problems while others allow for
(fixed-parameter) tractability results.},

ABSTRACT = {The NP-hard \textsc{$k$-Anonymity}
problem asks, given an~$n \times m$-matrix~$M$ over a
fixed alphabet and an integer~$s>0$, whether~$M$ can be made
$k$-anonymous by suppressing (blanking out) at most~$s$
entries. A matrix~$M$ is said to be $k$-anonymous if for each
row~$r$ in~$M$ there are at least~$k-1$ other rows in~$M$ which
are identical to~$r$. Complementing previous work, we introduce two new
``data-driven'' parameterizations for \textsc{$k$-Anonymity}---the
number~$\tin$ of
different input rows and the number~$\tout$ of different output rows---both
modeling aspects of data homogeneity. We show that \textsc{$k$-Anonymity}
is fixed-parameter tractable for the parameter~$\tin$, and it is
NP-hard even for~$\tout = 2$ and alphabet size four.
Notably, our fixed-parameter tractability result implies that
\textsc{$k$-Anonymity} can be solved in \emph{linear time} when~$\tin$ is a
constant. Our results also extend to some interesting
generalizations of \textsc{$k$-Anonymity}.},

ABSTRACT = { In the online checkpointing problem, the task is to continuously maintain a
set of $k$ checkpoints that allow to rewind an ongoing computation faster than
by a full restart. The only operation allowed is to replace an old checkpoint
by the current state. Our aim are checkpoint placement strategies that minimize
rewinding cost, i.e., such that at all times $T$ when requested to rewind to
some time $t \le T$ the number of computation steps that need to be redone to
get to $t$ from a checkpoint before $t$ is as small as possible. In particular,
we want that the closest checkpoint earlier than $t$ is not further away from
$t$ than $q_k$ times the ideal distance $T / (k+1)$, where $q_k$ is a small
constant.
Improving over earlier work showing $1 + 1/k \le q_k \le 2$, we show that
$q_k$ can be chosen asymptotically less than $2$. We present algorithms with
asymptotic discrepancy $q_k \le 1.59 + o(1)$ valid for all $k$ and $q_k \le
\ln(4) + o(1) \le 1.39 + o(1)$ valid for $k$ being a power of two. Experiments
indicate the uniform bound $p_k \le 1.7$ for all $k$. For small $k$, we show
how to use a linear programming approach to compute good checkpointing
algorithms. This gives discrepancies of less than $1.55$ for all $k < 60$.
We prove the first lower bound that is asymptotically more than one, namely
$q_k \ge 1.30 - o(1)$. We also show that optimal algorithms (yielding the
infimum discrepancy) exist for all~$k$. },

archiving algorithm defines how to choose in each generation μ children from μ

individuals online without knowing future offspring. Previous studies assumed
the offspring generation to be best-case. We assume the initial population and
the offspring generation to be worst-case and use the competitive ratio to
measure how much smaller hypervolumes an archiving algorithm finds due to not
knowing the future in advance. We prove that all archiving algorithms which
increase the hypervolume in each step (if they can) are only μ-competitive. We
also present a new archiving algorithm which is (4 + 2/μ)-competitive. This
algorithm not only achieves a constant competitive ratio, but is also
efficiently computable. Both properties provably do not hold for the commonly
used greedy archiving algorithms, for example those used in SIBEA, SMS-EMOA, or
the generational MO-CMA-ES. },

ABSTRACT = {The core of hypervolume-based multi-objective evolutionary algorithms is an
archiving algorithm which performs the environmental selection. A (μ+λ)-
archiving algorithm defines how to choose μ children from μ parents and λ
offspring together. We study theoretically (μ+λ)-archiving algorithms which
never decrease the hypervolume from one generation to the next.
Zitzler, Thiele, and Bader (IEEE Trans. Evolutionary Computation, 14:58-79,
2010) proved that all (μ+1)-archiving algorithms are ineffective, which means
there is an initial population such that independent of the used reproduction
rule, a set with maximum hypervolume cannot be reached. We extend this and
prove that for λ<μ all archiving algorithms are ineffective. On the other hand,
locally optimal algorithms, which maximize the hypervolume in each step, are
effective for λ=μ and can always find a population with hypervolume at least
half the optimum for λ<μ.
We also prove that there is no hypervolume-based archiving algorithm which can
always find a population with hypervolume greater than 1/(1+0.1338(1/λ-1/μ))
times the optimum. },

ABSTRACT = {Multi-objective optimization problems arise frequently in applications but can
often only be solved approximately by heuristic approaches. Evolutionary
algorithms have been widely used to tackle multi-objective problems. These
algorithms use different measures to ensure diversity in the objective space
but are not guided by a formal notion of approximation.
We present a new framework of an evolutionary algorithm for multi-objective
optimization that allows to work with a formal notion of approximation. Our
experimental results show that our approach outperforms state-of-the-art
evolutionary algorithms in terms of the quality of the approximation that is
obtained in particular for problems with many objectives. },

ABSTRACT = {We study the fundamental problem of the exact and efficient generation of
random values from a finite and discrete probability distribution. Suppose that
we are given n distinct events with associated probabilities p_1,...,p_n. We
consider the problem of sampling a subset, which includes the i-th event
independently with probability p_i, and the problem of sampling from the
distribution, where the i-th event has a probability proportional to p_i. For
both problems we present on two different classes of inputs – sorted and
general probabilities – efficient preprocessing algorithms that allow for
asymptotically optimal querying, and prove almost matching lower bounds for
their complexity. },

ABSTRACT = {A priority queue $Q$ is a data structure that maintains a collection
of elements, each element having an associated priority drawn from a
totally ordered universe, under the operations {\sc Insert}, which
inserts an element into $Q$, and {\sc DeleteMin}, which deletes an
element with the minimum priority from $Q$. In this paper a
priority-queue implementation is given which is efficient with
respect to the number of block transfers or I/Os performed between
the internal and external memories of a computer. Let $B$ and $M$
denote the respective capacity of a block and the internal memory
measured in elements. The developed data structure handles any
intermixed sequence of {\sc Insert} and {\sc DeleteMin} operations such
that in every disjoint interval of $B$ consecutive priority-queue
operations at most $c \log_{M/B} \frac{N}{M}$ I/Os are performed,
for some positive constant $c$. These I/Os are divided evenly among
the operations: if $B \geq c \log_{M/B} \frac{N}{M}$, one I/O is
necessary for every $B/(c\log_{M/B} \frac{N}{M})$th operation and if
$B < c \log_{M/B} \frac{N}{M}$, $\frac{c}{B}\log_{M/B} \frac{N}{M}$
I/Os are performed per every operation. Moreover, every operation
requires $O(\log_2 N)$ comparisons in the worst case. The best
earlier solutions can only handle a sequence of $S$ operations with
$O(\sum_{i=1}^{S}\frac{1}{B}\log_{M/B}\frac{N_{i}}{M})$ I/Os, where
$N_{i}$ denotes the number of elements stored in the data structure
prior to the $i$th operation, without giving any guarantee for the
performance of the individual operations.},

pointer machine, {\it i.e.}, how to maintain a sorted list such that
searching for an element $x$, starting the search at any arbitrary
element $f$ in the list, only requires logarithmic time in the
distance between $x$ and $f$ in the list.
We present the first pointer-based implementation of finger search
trees allowing new elements to be inserted at any arbitrary position
in the list in worst case constant time. Previously, the best known
insertion time on the pointer machine was $O(\log^{*} n)$, where $n$
is the total length of the list. On a unit-cost RAM, a constant
insertion time has been achieved by Dietz and Raman by using
standard techniques of packing small problem sizes into a constant
number of machine words.
Deletion of a list element is supported in $O(\log^{*} n)$ time, which
matches the previous best bounds. Our data structure requires linear
space.},

ABSTRACT = {Glivenko’s theorem states that an arbitrary proposi- tional formula is
classically provable if and only if its double nega- tion is intuitionistically
provable. The result does not extend to full first-order predicate logic, but
does extend to first-order pred- icate logic without the universal quantifier.
A recent paper by Zdanowski shows that Glivenko’s theorem also holds for
second- order propositional logic without the universal quantifier. We prove
that Glivenko’s theorem extends to some versions of simple type theory without
the universal quantifier. Moreover we prove that Kuroda’s negative translation,
which is known to embed clas- sical first-order logic into intuitionistic
first-order logic, extends to the same versions of simple type theory. We also
prove that the Glivenko property fails for simple type theory once a weak form
of functional extensionality is included.},

ABSTRACT = {We present a generic framework on a set of surfaces $\calS$ in $\R^3$ that
provides their geometric and topological analysis in order to
support various algorithms and applications in computational geometry.
Our implementation follows the generic programming paradigm, i.e.,
to support a certain family of surfaces, we require a small set of types and
some basic operations on them, all collected in a model of the newly presented
{\sc SurfaceTraits\_3} concept.
The framework obtains geometric and topological information on a
non-empty set of surfaces in two steps.
First, important $0$- and $1$-dimensional features are projected onto the
$xy$-plane, obtaining an arrangement $\calA_\calS$ with certain properties.
Second, for each of its components, a sample point is lifted back to $\R^3$
while detecting intersections with the given surfaces.
This idea is similar to Collins' cylindrical algebraic decomposition (cad).
In contrast, we reduce the number of liftings using \cgal's Arrangement\_2
package as a basic tool. Properly instantiated, the framework provides main
functionality required to support the computation of a
Piano Mover's instance. On the other hand, the complexity of the output is
high, and thus, we particularly regard the framework as key ingredient
for querying information on and constructing geometric objects from a small set
of surfaces. Examples are meshing of single surfaces, the computation of
space-curves defined by two surfaces, to compute lower envelopes of surfaces,
or as a basic step to compute an efficient representation of a
three-dimensional arrangement.
We also inspirit the framework in two steps. First, we show that the well-known
family of algebraic surfaces fulfils the framework's requirements.
As robust implementations on these surfaces are lacking these days, we consider
the framework to be an important step to fill this gap.
Second, we instantiate the framework by a fully-fledged model
for special algebraic surfaces, namely quadrics. This instantiation
already supports main tasks demanded from rotational robot motion
planning~\cite{Latom1993}. How to provide a model for algebraic surfaces
of arbitrary degree, is partly discussed in~\cite{bks-exact-08}.},

ABSTRACT = {Let $G=(V,E)$ be an undirected graph on $n$ vertices, and let $\delta(u,v)$
denote the distance in $G$ between two vertices $u$ and $v$. Thorup and Zwick
showed that for any +ve integer $t$, the
graph $G$ can be preprocessed to build a data-structure that can efficiently
report $t$-approximate distance between any pair of vertices. That is, for any
$u,v\in V$, the distance reported $\hat{\delta}(u,v)$ satisfies
\[
\delta(u,v) \le \hat{\delta}(u,v) \le t \delta(u,v)
\]
The remarkable feature of this data-structure is that, for $t>2$,
it occupies sub-quadratic space, i.e., it does not store all-pairs distances
information explicitly, and still can answer
any $t$-approximate distance query in constant time. They named the
data-structure "oracle" because of this feature. Furthermore, the tradeoff
between stretch $t$ and the size of the data-structure is essentially optimal.
In this paper we show that we can actually construct approximate distance
oracles in expected $O(n^2)$ time if the graph is unweighted. One of the new
ideas used in the improved algorithm also leads to the first expected linear
time algorithm for computing an optimal size $(2,1)$-spanner of an unweighted
graph. A $(2,1)$-spanner of a graph $G=(V,E)$ is a subgraph $G=(V,E_S),
E_S\subset E$, such that for any two vertices
$u$ and $v$ in the graph, their distance in the subgraph is at most
$2\delta(u,v)+1$.},

ABSTRACT = { With the increasing amount of DNA sequence information deposited in
our databases searching for similarity to a query sequence
has become a basic operation in molecular biology.
But even todays fast algorithms reach their limits when
applied to all-versus-all comparisons of large databases.
Here we present a new data base searching
algorithm dubbed QUASAR (Q-gram Alignment based on Suffix ARrays)
which was designed to quickly detect sequences with strong
similarity to the query in a context where many searches are
conducted on one database. Our algorithm applies a modification of
$q$-tuple filtering implemented on top of a suffix array. Two
versions were developed, one for a RAM resident suffix array and one
for access to the suffix array on disk. We compared our implementation
with BLAST and found that our approach is an order of magnitude faster.
It is, however, restricted to the search for strongly similar DNA
sequences as is typically required, e.g., in the context of clustering
expressed sequence tags (ESTs).},

ABSTRACT = {The q-gram filter is a popular filtering method for approximate
string matching. It compares substrings of length q (the q-grams)
in the pattern and the text to identify the text areas that might
contain a match. A generalization of the method is to use gapped
q-grams, subsets of q characters in some fixed non-contiguous
shape, instead of contiguous substrings. Although mentioned a few
times in the literature, this generalization has never been studied
in any depth. In ths paper, we report the first results from a
study on gapped q-grams. We show that gapped q-grams can provide
orders of magnitude faster and/or more efficient filtering than
contiguous q-grams. The performance, however, depends on the shape
of the q-grams. The best shaoes are rare and often posess no
apparen regularity. We show how to recognize good shapes and
demonstrate with experiments their advantage over both contiguous
and average shapes. We concentrate here on the k mismatches
problem, but also outline an approach for extending the results
to the more common k differences problem.},

distance, which is more problematic for gapped $q$-grams because an
insertion or deletion in a gap affects a $q$-gram while a
replacement does not. To keep this effect under control, we
concentrate on gapped $q$-grams with just one gap. We demostrate with
experiments that the resulting filters provide a significant
improvement over the contiguous $q$-gram filters. We also develop new
techniques for dealing with complex $q$-gram filters.},

input (the string) and the output (the suffix array). By setting
$v=\log n$, we obtain an $\Oh{n \log n}$ time algorithm using
$\Oh{n/\sqrt{\log n}}$ extra space. This solves the open problem
stated by Manzini and Ferragina [ESA\;'02] of whether there
exists a lightweight (sublinear extra space) $\Oh{n \log n}$ time
algorithm. The key idea of the algorithm is to first sort a
sample of suffixes chosen using mathematical constructs called
difference covers. The algorithm is not only lightweight but also
fast in practice as demonstrated by experiments. Additionally,
we describe fast and lightweight suffix array checkers, i.e.,
algorithms that check the correctness of a suffix array.},

matches. A generalization of the method that uses {\em gapped}
$q$-grams instead of contiguous substrings is mentioned a few times in
literature but has never been analyzed in any depth. In this paper,
we report the first results of a study on gapped $q$-grams. We show
that gapped $q$-grams can provide orders of magnitude faster and/or
more efficient filtering than contiguous $q$-grams. To achieve these
results the arrangement of the gaps in the $q$-gram and a filter
parameter called \emph{threshold} have to be optimized. Both of these
tasks are nontrivial combinatorial optimization problems for which we
present efficient solutions. We concentrate on the $k$~mismatches
problem, i.e, approximate string matching with the Hamming distance.},

ABSTRACT = {Suppose that $m$ drivers each choose a preferred parking space in a linear car
park with $n$ spaces. Each driver goes to the chosen space and parks there if
it is free, and otherwise takes the first available space with a larger number
(if any). If all drivers park successfully, the sequence of choices is called a
parking function. In general, if $k$ drivers fail to park, we have a
\emph{defective parking function} of \emph{defect} $k$. Let $\cp(n,m,k)$ be the
number of such functions.
In this paper, we establish a recurrence relation for the numbers $\cp(n,m,k)$,
and express this as an equation for a three-variable generating function. We
solve this equation using the kernel method, and extract the coefficients
explicitly: it turns out that the cumulative totals are partial sums in Abel's
binomial identity. Finally, we compute the asymptotics of $\cp(n,m,k)$. In
particular, for the case $m=n$, if choices are made independently at random,
the limiting distribution of the defect (the number of drivers who fail to
park), scaled by the square root of $n$, is the Rayleigh distribution. On the
other hand, in the case $m=\omega(n)$, the probability that all spaces are
occupied tends asymptotically to one.},

ABSTRACT = {In prior papers, beginning with the seminal work by Freivalds et al. 1995, the
notion of intrinsic complexity is used to analyze the learning complexity of
sets of functions in a Gold-style learning setting. Herein are pointed out some
weaknesses of this notion. Offered is an alternative based on epitomizing sets
of functions -- sets, which are learnable under a given learning criterion, but
not under other criteria which are not at least as powerful. To capture the
idea of epitomizing sets, new reducibility notions are given based on robust
learning (closure of learning under certain classes of operators). Various
degrees of epitomizing sets are characterized as the sets complete with respect
to corresponding reducibility notions! These characterizations also provide an
easy method for showing sets to be epitomizers, and they are, then, employed to
prove several sets to be epitomizing. Furthermore, a scheme is provided to
generate easily very strong epitomizers for a multitude of learning criteria.
These strong epitomizers are so-called self-learning sets, previously applied
by Case \& Koetzing, 2010. These strong epitomizers can be generated and
employed in a myriad of settings to witness the strict separation in learning
power between the criteria so epitomized and other not as powerful criteria!},

ABSTRACT = {We continue the study of the effects of selfish behavior in the
network design problem.
We provide new bounds for the price of stability for network design with
fair cost allocation for undirected graphs. We consider the most general
case, for which the best known upper bound is the Harmonic number
$H_n$, where $n$ is the number of agents,
and the best previously known lower bound is $12/7\approx1.778$.
We present a nontrivial lower bound of $42/23\approx1.8261$.
Furthermore,
we show that for two players, the price of stability is exactly $4/3$, while for
three players it is at least $74/48\approx 1.542$ and at most $1.65$.
These are the first improvements on the bound of $H_n$ for general networks.
In particular, this demonstrates a separation between the price of
stability on undirected graphs and that on directed graphs,
Previously, such a gap was only known for the cases where all players
have a shared source, and for weighted players.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider the classic online scheduling problem of minimizing the total
weighted flow time on a single machine
with preemptions. Here, each job $j$ has an arbitrary arrival time $r_j$,
weight $w_j$ and size $p_j$, and given a schedule its
flow time is defined as the duration of time since its arrival until it
completes its service requirement.
The first non-trivial algorithms with poly-logarithmic competitive ratio for
this problem were obtained relatively recently,
and it was widely believed that the problem admits a constant factor
competitive algorithm. In this paper, we show an $\omega(1)$ lower bound on the
competitive ratio of any deterministic online algorithm.
Our result is based on a gap amplification technique for online algorithms.
Starting with a trivial lower bound of 1, we give a procedure to improve the
lower bound sequentially, while ensuring at each step that the size of the
instance increases relatively modestly. },

power function, which expresses the power consumption $P$ as a function

Motivated in part by technological advances,
we initiate a study of speed scaling with arbitrary
power functions.
We consider the problem of minimizing the total flow plus energy.
Our main result is a $(3+\epsilon)$-competitive algorithm for this problem,
that holds
for essentially any power function.
We also give a $(2+\epsilon)$-competitive algorithm for the objective of
fractional weighted flow plus energy.
Even for power functions of the form $s^\alpha$, it was not previously
known how to obtain competitiveness independent of $\alpha$ for
these problems.
We also introduce a model of allowable speeds that generalizes
all known models in the literature.},

ABSTRACT = {The Hadwiger number m(G) of a graph G is the
largest integer h such that the complete graph on h nodes is a minor
of G. Equivalently, it is the largest integer such
that any graph on at most m(G) nodes is a minor of G.
The Hadwiger's conjecture states that for any graph G, m(G) >= chi(G),
where
chi(G) is the chromatic number of G. It is well-known
that for any connected undirected graph G, there exists a unique prime
factorization with respect to Cartesian graph products.
If the unique prime factorization of G is given as
G1 X G2 X ... X Gk, where each Gi is prime,
then we say that the product dimension of G is k.
Such a factorization can be computed efficiently.
In this paper, we study the Hadwiger's conjecture for graphs in terms
of their prime factorization.
We show that the Hadwiger's conjecture is true for a graph G if
the product dimension of G is at least 2log(chi(G)) + 3.
In fact, it is enough for G to have a connected graph M as a minor
whose product dimension is at
least 2log(chi(G)) + 3, for G to satisfy the Hadwiger's conjecture.
We show also that
if a graph G is isomorphic to F^d for some F, then
mr(G) >= chi(G)^{\lfloor \frac{d-1}{2} \rfloor}, and thus
G satisfies the Hadwiger's conjecture when d >= 3.
For sufficiently large d, our lower bound is exponentially higher
than what is implied by the Hadwiger's conjecture.
Our approach also yields (almost) sharp lower bounds for the
Hadwiger number of well-known graph products like d--dimensional hypercubes,
Hamming graphs and the d--dimensional grids. In particular, we show that
for a d--dimensional hypercube Hd,
$2^{\lfloor\frac{d-1}{2}\rfloor} <= m(Hd) <= 2^{\frac{d}{2}}\sqrt{d} +1$.
We also derive similar bounds for G^d for almost all
G with n nodes and at least nlog(n) edges.},

ABSTRACT = {We present multiple pass streaming algorithms for a basic clustering problem
for massive data sets. If our algorithm is allotted 2l passes, it will produce
an approximation with error at most $\varepsilon$ using Õ(k3/$\varepsilon$2/l) bits of memory, the most
critical resource for streaming computation. We demonstrate that this tradeoff
between passes and memory allotted is intrinsic to the problem and model of
computation by proving lower bounds on the memory requirements of any l pass
randomized algorithm that are nearly matched by our upper bounds. To the best
of our knowledge, this is the first time nearly matching bounds have been
proved for such an exponential tradeoff for randomized computation.In this
problem, we are given a set of n points drawn randomly according to a mixture
of k uniform distributions and wish to approximate the density function of the
mixture. The points are placed in a datastream (possibly in adversarial order),
which may only be read sequentially by the algorithm. We argue that this
models, among others, the datastream produced by a national census of the
incomes of all citizens.},

ABSTRACT = {We present a multiple pass streaming algorithm
for learning the density function of
a mixture of $k$ uniform distributions
over rectangles (cells) in $\reals^d$, for any $d>0$.
Our learning model is: samples drawn according to
the mixture are placed in {\it arbitrary order} in a
data stream that may only be accessed sequentially by an
algorithm with a very limited random access memory space.
Our algorithm makes $2\ell+1$ passes, for any $\ell>0$, and
requires memory at most $\tilde O(\epsilon^{-2/\ell}k^2d^4+(2k)^d)$.
This exhibits a
strong memory-space tradeoff: a few more passes significantly
lowers its memory requirements, thus trading one of the two most important
resources in streaming computation for the other.
Chang and Kannan \cite{chang06}
first considered this problem for $d=1, 2$.
Our learning algorithm is
especially appropriate for situations where massive data sets of
samples are available, but practical computation with such
large inputs requires very restricted models of computation.},

ABSTRACT = {Completely automated electronic securities exchanges
and algorithms for trading in these exchanges have become
very important for modern finance. In \cite{kkmo04},
Kakade \etal introduced the limit order market model,
which is a prevalent paradigm in electronic markets.
In this paper, we consider both online and offline algorithms
for selling securities in limit order markets in order to
maximize the total revenue realized from the sale. We first
prove that the standard reservation price algorithm has an
optimal competitive ratio for this problem. Since this is
not constant, we turn to offline optimization in order to
compute improved solutions. We show that the offline
optimization problem is \textbf{NP}-hard, even for very restricted
instances, by reducing from \knapsack. We complement the
hardness result by presenting an approximation scheme
that runs in polynomial time for a wide class of instances.},

ABSTRACT = { Given a metric $M = (V,d)$, a graph $G = (V,E)$ is a $t$-spanner for $M$
if every pair of nodes in $V$ has a ``short'' path (i.e., of length at
most $t$ times their actual distance) between them in the spanner.
Furthermore, this spanner has a \emph{hop diameter} bounded by $D$ if
every pair of nodes has such a short path that also uses at most $D$ edges.
We consider the problem
of constructing sparse $(1+\eps)$-spanners with small hop diameter for
metrics of low doubling dimension.
In this paper, we show that given any metric with constant doubling
dimension $k$, and any $0 < \eps < 1$, one can find $(1 +
\eps)$-spanner for the metric with nearly linear number of edges (i.e.,
only $O(n \log^* n + n\eps^{-O(k)})$ edges) and \emph{constant} hop
diameter; we can also obtain a $(1 + \eps)$-spanner with linear number of
edges
(i.e., only $n\eps^{-O(k)}$ edges) that achieves a hop diameter that
grows like the functional inverse of Ackermann's function.
Moreover, we prove that such tradeoffs between the number of edges and
the hop diameter are asymptotically optimal.},

We give parallel algorithms for the EREW PRAM model of computation

the input graph. When the treewidth is a constant, our algorithms
can answer distance queries in $O(\alpha(n))$ time using a single
processor, after a preprocessing of $O(\log^2n)$ time and $O(n)$ work,
where $\alpha(n)$ is the inverse of Ackermann's function.
The class of constant treewidth graphs
contains outerplanar graphs and series-parallel graphs, among
others. To the best of our knowledge, these
are the first parallel algorithms which achieve these bounds
for any class of graphs except trees.
We also give a dynamic algorithm which, after a change in
an edge weight, updates our data structures in $O(\log n)$ time
using $O(n^\beta)$ work, for any constant $0 < \beta < 1$.
Moreover, we give an algorithm of independent interest:
computing a shortest path tree, or finding a negative cycle in
$O(\log^2 n)$ time using $O(n)$ work.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider a scheduling problem where each job is controlled by a
selfish agent, who is only interested in minimizing its own cost,
defined as the total load of the machine that its job is assigned
to. We consider the objective of maximizing the minimum load (the
value of the cover) over the machines. Unlike the regular makespan
minimization problem, which was extensively studied in a game
theoretic context, this problem has not been considered in this
setting before.
We study the price of anarchy (\poa) and the price of stability
(\pos). These measures are unbounded already for two uniformly
related machines \cite{EpKS10}, and therefore we focus on
identical machines. We show that the $\pos$ is 1, and derive tight
bounds on the pure $\poa$ for $m\leq 7$ and on the overall pure
$\poa$, showing that its value is exactly 1.7. To achieve the
upper bound of 1.7, we make an unusual use of weighting functions.
Finally, we show that the mixed $\poa$ grows exponentially with
$m$ for this problem.
In addition, we consider a similar setting of selfish jobs with a
different objective of minimizing the maximum ratio between the
loads of any pair of machines in the schedule. We show that under
this objective the $\pos$ is 1 and the pure $\poa$ is 2, for any
$m\geq 2$.},

ABSTRACT = { We consider the offline sorting buffer problem. The input is a
sequence of items of different types. All items must be processed
one by one by a server. The server is equipped with a random-access
buffer of limited capacity which can be used to rearrange items. The
problem is to design a scheduling strategy that decides upon the
order in which items from the buffer are sent to the server. Each
type change incurs unit cost, and thus, the
objective is to minimize the total number of type changes for
serving the entire sequence. This problem is motivated by various
applications in manufacturing processes and computer science, and it
has attracted significant attention in the last few years. The main
focus has been on online competitive algorithms. Surprisingly little
is known on the basic offline problem.
In this paper, we show that the sorting buffer problem with
uniform cost is NP-hard and, thus, close one of the most fundamental
questions for the offline problem. On the positive side, we give
an~$O(1)$-approximation algorithm when the scheduler is given a
buffer only slightly larger than double the original size.
We also give a dynamic programming algorithm for the special case of
buffer size two that solves the problem exactly in linear time,
improving on the standard DP which runs in cubic time.},

ABSTRACT = {We study the problem of waking up a collection of $n$ processors connected by a
multihop ad hoc ratio network with unknown topology, no access to a global
clock, and no collision detection mechanism available. Each node in the network
either wakes up spontaneously or gets activated by receiving a wake-up signal
from another node. All active nodes transmit the wake-up signals according to a
given protocol $\calW$. The running time of $\calW$ is the number of steps
counted from the first spontaneous wake-up until all nodes become activated. We
provide two protocols for this problem. The first one is a deterministic
protocol with running time $O(n^{5/3}\log n)$. Our protocol is based on a novel
concept of a shift-tolerant selector to which we refer as a (radio)
synchronizer. The second protocol is randomized, and its expected running time
is $O(D \log^2 n)$, where $D$ is the diameter of the network. Subsequently we
show how to employ our wake-up protocols to solve two other communication
primitives: leader election and clock synchronization. },

ABSTRACT = {The single source shortest path (SSSP) problem
lacks parallel solutions which are fast and simultaneously
work-efficient.
We propose simple criteria which divide
Dijkstra's sequential SSSP algorithm into a number of phases,
such that the operations within a phase can be done
in parallel. We give a PRAM algorithm based on these criteria
and analyze its performance on random digraphs
with random edge weights uniformly distributed in $[0,1]$.
We use the ${\cal G}(n,d/n)$ model: the graph consists of
$n$~nodes and each edge is chosen with probability $d/n$.
Our PRAM algorithm needs ${\cal O}(n^{1/3} \log n)$
time and ${\cal O}(n \log n+dn)$ work with high probability (whp).
We also give extensions to external memory computation.
Simulations show the applicability of our approach
even on non-random graphs.},

ABSTRACT = {We study the \emph{partial capacitated vertex cover problem} (PCVC)
in which the input consists of a graph $G$ and a covering requirement
$L$. Each edge $e$ in $G$ is associated with a \emph{demand} (or
\emph{load}) $\ell(e)$, and each vertex $v$ is associated with a
(soft) \emph{capacity} $c(v)$ and a \emph{weight} $w(v)$. A feasible
solution is an assignment of edges to vertices such that the total
demand of assigned edges is at least $L$. The weight of a solution is
$\sum_v \alpha(v) w(v)$, where $\alpha(v)$ is the number of copies of
$v$ required to cover the demand of the edges that are assigned to
$v$. The goal is to find a solution of minimum weight.
We consider three variants of PCVC. In PCVC with \emph{separable
demands} the only requirement is that total demand of edges assigned
to $v$ is at most $\alpha(v) c(v)$. In \pcvc\ with \emph{inseparable
demands} there is an additional requirement that if an edge is
assigned to $v$ then it must be assigned to one of its copies. The
third variant is the unit demands version.
We present $3$-approximation algorithms for both PCVC with separable
demands and PCVC with inseparable demands. We also present a
$2$-approximation algorithm for PCVC with unit demands. We show
that similar results can be obtained for PCVC in hypergraphs and for
the \emph{prize collecting} version of capacitated vertex cover.
Our algorithms are based on a unified approach for designing and
analyzing approximation algorithms for capacitated covering problems.
This approach yields simple algorithms whose analyses rely on the
local ratio technique and sophisticated charging schemes.},

and the Traveling Salesman Problem. We consider a more general model that
incorporates the actual cost in terms of gas prices. We have a vehicle with a
given tank capacity. We assume that at each vertex gas may be purchased at a
certain price. The objective is to find the cheapest route to go from s to t,
or the cheapest tour visiting a given set of locations. Surprisingly, the
problem of find the cheapest way to go from s to t can be solved in polynomial
time and is not NP-complete. For most other versions however, the problem is
NP-complete and we develop polynomial time approximation algorithms for these
versions.},

ABSTRACT = {Local Ratio is a well-known paradigm for designing approximation algorithms for
combinatorial optimization problems. At a very high level, a local ratio
algorithm first decomposes the input weight function $w$ into a positive linear
combination of simpler weight functions or \emph{models}. Guided by this
process a solution $S$ is constructed such that $S$ is $\alpha$-approximate
with respect to each model used in the decomposition. As a result, $S$ is
$\alpha$-approximate under $w$ as well.
These models usually have a very simple structure that remains ``unchanged''
throughout the execution of the algorithm. In this work we show that adaptively
choosing a model from a richer spectrum of functions can lead to a better local
ratio. Indeed, by turning the search for a good model into an optimization
problem of its own, we get improved approximations for a data migration
problem.},

ABSTRACT = {In many communications settings, such as wired and wireless local-area
networks, when multiple users attempt to access a communication channel at the
same time, a conflict results and none of the communications are
successful. Contention resolution is the study of distributed transmission and
retransmission protocols designed to maximize notions of utility such as
channel utilization in the face of blocking communications.
An additional issue to be considered in the design of such protocols
is that selfish users may have incentive to deviate from the
prescribed behavior, if another transmission strategy increases their
utility. The work of Fiat et al.~\cite{Fiat07} addresses this issue by
constructing an asymptotically optimal incentive-compatible
protocol. However, their protocol assumes the cost of any single
transmission is zero, and the protocol completely collapses under non-zero
transmission costs.
In this paper, we treat the case of non-zero transmission cost $c$.
We present asymptotically optimal contention resolution protocols that
are robust to selfish users, in two different channel feedback

model, where after each time slot, the number of attempted
transmissions is returned as feedback to the users. In this setting,
we give a protocol that has expected cost $2n+c\log n$ and is in
$o(1)$-equilibrium, where $n$ is the number of users.},

ABSTRACT = { The construction of full-text indexes on very large text collections
is nowadays a hot problem. The suffix array [Manber-Myers,~1993] is
one of the most attractive full-text indexing data structures due to
its simplicity, space efficiency and powerful/fast search operations
supported. In this paper we analyze, both theoretically and
experimentally, the I/O-complexity and the working space of six
algorithms for constructing large suffix arrays. Three of them are
the state-of-the-art, the other three algorithms are our new
proposals. We perform a set of experiments based on three different
data sets (English texts, Amino-acid sequences and random texts) and
give a precise hierarchy of these algorithms according to their
working-space vs. construction-time tradeoff. Given the current
trends in model design~\cite{Farach-et-al,Vitter} and disk
technology~\cite{quantum,Ruemmler-Wilkes}, we will pose particular
attention to differentiate between ``random'' and ``contiguous''
disk accesses, in order to reasonably explain some practical
I/O-phenomena which are related to the experimental behavior of
these algorithms and that would be otherwise meaningless in the
light of other simpler external-memory models.
At the best of our knowledge, this is the first study which provides
a wide spectrum of possible approaches to the construction of suffix
arrays in external memory, and thus it should be helpful to anyone
who is interested in building full-text indexes on very large text
collections.
Finally, we conclude our paper by addressing two other issues. The
former concerns with the problem of building word-indexes; we show
that our results can be successfully applied to this case too,
without any loss in efficiency and without compromising the
simplicity of programming so to achieve a uniform, simple and
efficient approach to both the two indexing models. The latter issue
is related to the intriguing and apparently counterintuitive
``contradiction'' between the effective practical performance of the
well-known BaezaYates-Gonnet-Snider's algorithm~\cite{book-info},
verified in our experiments, and its unappealing (i.e., cubic)
worst-case behavior. We devise a new external-memory algorithm that
follows the basic philosophy underlying that algorithm but in a
significantly different manner, thus resulting in a novel approach
which combines good worst-case bounds with efficient practical
performance. },

used in an \emph{external memory} setting. We introduce LEDA-SM that extends
the LEDA-library~\cite{LEDAbook} towards secondary memory computation. LEDA-SM
uses I/O-efficient algorithms and data structures that do not suffer from the
so called {\em I/O bottleneck}. LEDA is used for in-core computation. We
explain the design of LEDA-SM and report on performance results. },

ABSTRACT = { In this paper we compare the performance of eight different priority
queue implementations: four of them are explicitly designed to work
in an external-memory setting, the others are standard
internal-memory queues available in the LEDA library~\cite{leda}.
Two of the external-memory priority queues are obtained by
engineering known internal-memory priority queues with the aim of
achieving effective performance on external storage devices (i.e.,
Radix heaps~\cite{Ahuja-et-al} and array heaps~\cite{Thorup}). Our
experimental framework includes some simple tests, like random
sequences of insert or delete-minimum operations, as well as more
advanced tests consisting of intermixed sequences of update
operations and ``application driven'' update sequences originated
by simulations of Dijkstra's algorithm on large graph instances.
Our variegate spectrum of experimental results gives a good picture
of the features of these priority queues, thus being helpful to
anyone interested in the use of such data structures on very large
data sets. },

drawn from random and semi-random models. In the first model,
each allowed edge is included with indpendent probability p.
In the second model, an adversary is given the power to
vary the edge probability as the random instance is built.
Semi-random models were introduced as a way of striking a balance
between random graphs and worst-case adversaries. Our algorithms
run in polynomial time on the average. Minimum coloring is harder
than k-coloring because even a ''short certificate'' is not presently
known for the optimality of a coloring. },

ABSTRACT = {We show that the Dominating Set problem parameterized by solution size is
fixed-parameter tractable (FPT) in graphs that do not contain
the claw (\(K_{1,3}\), the complete bipartite graph on four
vertices where the two parts have one and three vertices,
respectively) as an \emph{induced} subgraph. We present an
algorithm that uses $2^{O(k^2)} n^{O(1)}$ time and polynomial
space to decide whether a claw-free graph on \(n\) vertices has
a dominating set of size at most \(k\). Note that this
parameterization of Dominating Set is W[2]-hard on the set of all graphs,
and thus is unlikely to have an FPT algorithm for graphs in
general.
The most general class of graphs for which an FPT algorithm was
previously known for this parameterization of Dominating Set is the class
of \(K_{i,j}\)-free graphs, which exclude, for some fixed
\(i,j\in\mathbb{N}\), the complete bipartite graph \(K_{i,j}\)
as a \emph{subgraph}. For \(i,j\ge 2\), the class of claw-free
graphs and any class of \(K_{i,j}\)-free graphs are not
comparable with respect to set inclusion. We thus \emph{extend}
the range of graphs over which this parameterization of Dominating Set is
known to be fixed-parameter tractable.
We also show that, in some sense, it is the presence of the claw
that makes this parameterization of the Dominating Set problem hard. More
precisely, we show that for any \(t\ge 4\), the Dominating Set problem
parameterized by the solution size is W[2]-hard in graphs that
exclude the \(t\)-claw \(K_{1,t}\) as an induced subgraph. Our
arguments also imply that the related Connected Dominating
Set and Dominating Clique problems are W[2]-hard in these
graph classes.
Finally, we show that for any \(t\in\mathbb{N}\), the Clique
problem parameterized by solution size, which is W[1]-hard
on general graphs, is FPT in \(t\)-claw-free graphs. Our results
add to the small and growing collection of FPT results for graph
classes defined by excluded \emph{subgraphs}, rather than by
excluded \emph{minors}.},

factors. We complement this result by an analysis of \emph{approximate
multipoint evaluation} of $F$ to a precision of $L$ bits after the binary point
and prove a bit complexity of $\tilde{O} (n(L + \tau + n\Gamma)),$ where
$2^\tau$ and $2^\Gamma,$ with $\tau, \Gamma \in \mathbb{N}_{\ge 1},$ are bounds
on the magnitude of the coefficients of $F$ and the evaluation points,
respectively. In particular, in the important case where the precision demand
dominates the other input parameters, the complexity is soft-linear in $n$ and
$L.$ Our result on approximate multipoint evaluation has some interesting
consequences on the bit complexity of three further approximation algorithms
which all use polynomial evaluation as a key subroutine. This comprises an
algorithm to approximate the real roots of a polynomial, an algorithm for
polynomial interpolation, and a method for computing a Taylor shift of a
polynomial. For all of the latter algorithms, we derive near optimal running
times.},

ABSTRACT = {The line simplification problem is an old and well studied
problem in cartography. Although there are several algorithms to compute a
simplification there seems to be no algorithms that perform line simplification
in the context of other geographical objects. This paper presents a nearly
quadratic time algorithm for the following line simplification problem: Given a
polygonal line, a set of extra points, and a real $\epsilon > 0$, compute a
simplification that guarantees (i) a maximum error $\epsilon$; (ii) that the
extra points remain on the same side of the simplified chain as on the original
chain; and (iii) that the simplified chain has no self-intersections. The
algorithm is applied as the main subroutine for subdivision simplification and
guarantees that the resulting subdivision is topologically correct.},

ABSTRACT = {Deterministic and randomized balancing schemes are used to distribute workload
evenly in networks. In this paper, we compare two very general ones: The random
walk and the (deterministic) Propp machine. Roughly speaking, we show that on
the two-dimensional grid, the Propp machine always has the same number of
tokens on a node as does the random walk in expectation, apart from an additive
error of less than eight. This constant is independent of the total number of
tokens and the runtime of the two processes. However, we also show that it
makes a difference whether the Propp machine serves the neighbors in a circular
or non-circular order.},

ABSTRACT = {Algorithms for reconstructing a 2-manifold from a point sample in R^3 based on
Voronoi-ﬁltering like CRUST or CoCone still
require -- after identifying a set of candidate triangles -- a so-called
manifold extraction step which identiﬁes a subset of the candidate triangles to
form the ﬁnal reconstruction surface. Non-locality of the latter step is caused
by so-called slivers -- conﬁgurations of four almost cocircular points having
an empty circumsphere with center close to the manifold surface.
We prove that under a certain mild condition -- local uniformity -- which
typically holds in practice but can also be enforced theoretically, one can
compute a reconstruction using an algorithm whose decisions about the
adjacencies of a point only depend on nearby points.
While the theoretical proof requires an extremely high sampling density, our
prototype implementation, described in a companion paper, performs well on
typical sample sets. Due to its local mode of computation, it might be
particularly suited for parallel computing or external memory scenarios.},

that the rounding errors in all rows and columns as well as the whole matrix

fields, in particular, statistics.
We improve earlier solutions of different authors in two ways. For rounding $m
\times n$ matrices, we reduce the runtime from $O( (m n)^2 ) $ to $O(m n \log(m
n))$. Second, our roundings also have a rounding error of less than one in all
initial intervals of rows and columns. Consequently, arbitrary intervals have
an error of at most two. This is particularly useful in the statistics
application of controlled rounding.
The same result can be obtained via (dependent) randomized rounding. This has
the additional advantage that the rounding is unbiased, that is, for all
entries $y_{ij}$ of our rounding, we have $E(y_{ij}) = x_{ij}$, where $x_{ij}$
is the corresponding entry of the input matrix.},

ABSTRACT = {Two mobile agents having distinct identifiers and located in nodes of an
unknown anonymous connected graph, have to meet at some node of the graph. We
seek fast deterministic algorithms for this rendezvous problem, under two
scenarios: simultaneous startup, when both agents start executing the algorithm
at the same time, and arbitrary startup, when starting times of the agents are
arbitrarily decided by an adversary. The measure of performance of a rendezvous
algorithm is its cost: for a given initial location of agents in a graph, this
is the number of steps since the startup of the later agent until rendezvous is
achieved. We first show that rendezvous can be completed at cost O(n + log l)
on any n-node tree, where l is the smaller of the two identifiers, even with
arbitrary startup. This complexity of the cost cannot be improved for some
trees, even with simultaneous startup. Efficient rendezvous in trees relies on
fast network exploration and cannot be used when the graph contains cycles. We
further study the simplest such network, i.e., the ring. We prove that, with
simultaneous startup, optimal cost of rendezvous on any ring is Θ(D log l),
where D is the initial distance between agents. We also establish bounds on
rendezvous cost in rings with arbitrary startup. For arbitrary connected
graphs, our main contribution is a deterministic rendezvous algorithm with cost
polynomial in n, τ and log l, where τ is the difference between startup times
of the agents. We also show a lower bound Ω (n2) on the cost of rendezvous in
some family of graphs. If simultaneous startup is assumed, we construct a
generic rendezvous algorithm, working for all connected graphs, which is
optimal for the class of graphs of bounded degree, if the initial distance
between agents is bounded.},

ABSTRACT = {Randomized rumor spreading is a classical protocol to disseminate information
across a network. At SODA 2008, a quasirandom version of this protocol was
proposed and competitive bounds for its run-time were proven. This prompts the
question: to what extent does the quasirandom protocol inherit the second
principal advantage of randomized rumor spreading, namely robustness against
transmission failures?
In this paper, we present a result precise up to $(1 \pm o(1))$ factors. We
limit ourselves to the network in which every two vertices are connected by a
direct link. Run-times accurate to their leading constants are unknown for all
other non-trivial networks.
We show that if each transmission reaches its destination with a probability
of $p \in (0,1]$, after
$(1+\e)\left(\frac{1}{\log_2(1+p)}\log_2n+\frac{1}{p}\ln n\right)$ rounds the
quasirandom protocol has informed all $n$ nodes in the network with probability
at least $1-n^{-p\e/40}$. Note that this is faster than the intuitively natural
$1/p$ factor increase over the run-time of approximately $\log_2 n + \ln n $
for the non-corrupted case.
We also provide a corresponding lower bound for the classical model. This
demonstrates that the quasirandom model is at least as robust as the fully
random model despite the greatly reduced degree of independent randomness.},

ABSTRACT = {We study non-overlapping axis-parallel packings of 3D boxes with profits into a
dedicated bigger box where rotation is either forbidden or permitted; we wish
to maximize the total profit. Since this optimization problem is NP-hard, we
focus on approximation algorithms. We obtain fast and simple algorithms for the
non-rotational scenario with approximation ratios $9+\epsilon$ and $8+\epsilon$
as well as an algorithm with approximation ratio $7+\epsilon$ that uses more
sophisticated techniques; these are the smallest approximation ratios known for
this problem. Furthermore, we show how the used techniques can be adapted to
the case where rotation by $90^{\circ}$ either around the $z$-axis or around
all axes is permitted, where we obtain algorithms with approximation ratios
$6+\epsilon$ and $5+\epsilon$, respectively. Finally our methods yield a 3D
generalization of a packability criterion and a strip packing algorithm with
absolute approximation ratio $\textfrac{29}{4}$, improving the previously best
known result of $\textfrac{45}{4}$.},

ABSTRACT = {Given a bipartite graph G(V,E), where |V|=n,|E|=m and a partition of the edge
set into r≤m disjoint subsets , which are called ranks, the rank-maximal
matching problem is to find a matching M of G such that |M∩E1| is maximized and
given that |M∩E1| is maximized, |M∩E2| is also maximized, and so on. Such a
problem arises as an optimization criteria over a possible assignment of a set
of applicants to a set of posts. The matching represents the assignment and the
ranks on the edges correspond to a ranking of the posts submitted by the
applicants.
The rank-maximal matching problem and several other optimization variants, e.g.
fair matching and maximum cardinality rank-maximal matching, can be solved by a
reduction to the weight matching problem in time . Recently, Irving et al.
developed a combinatorial approach which improves the running time for the
rank-maximal matching problem to . They raised the open questions on (a)
whether such a running time can be achieved by the weight matching reduction
and (b) whether such a running time can be achieved for the other variants of
the problem.
In this work we show how the reduction to the weight matching problem can also
be used to achieve the same running time. Our algorithm is simpler and more
intuitive. },

ABSTRACT = {Suffix arrays are a simple and powerful data structure for text processing
that can be used for full text indexes, data compression, and many
other applications in particular in bioinformatics.
However, so far it looked prohibitive to build suffix arrays
for huge inputs that do not fit into main memory.
This paper presents design, analysis, implementation, and
experimental evaluation of
several new and improved algorithms for suffix array construction.
The algorithms are asymptotically optimal in the worst case
or on the average. Our implementation can construct
suffix arrays for inputs of up to 4GByte in hours
on a low cost machine where
all previous implementations we are aware of would fail or take days.
We also present a simple and efficient external algorithm for checking
whether an array of indexes is a suffix array.
As a tool of possible independent interest we present a systematic way
to design, analyze, and implement \emph{pipelined}
algorithms.},

ABSTRACT = {The All-Pairs Shortest Path problem is the first non-artificial problem for
which it was shown that adding crossover can significantly speed up a
mutation-only evolutionary algorithm. Recently, the analysis of this algorithm
was refined and it was shown to have an expected optimization time of
$\Theta(n^{3.25}(\log n)^{0.25})$.
In this work, we study two variants of the algorithm. These are based on two
central concepts in recombination, \emph{repair mechanisms} and \emph{parent
selection}. We show that repairing infeasible offspring leads to an improved
expected optimization time of $\mathord{O}(n^{3.2}(\log n)^{0.2})$.
Furthermore, we prove that choosing parents that guarantee feasible offspring
results in an optimization time of $\mathord{O}(n^{3}\log n)$.},

star-dis\-cre\-pan\-cy with polynomial dependence on the dimension $d$ are
desirable.
Furthermore, it is still a great challenge to
give construction methods for low-discrepancy point sets.
In this paper we give upper bounds for the star-discrepancy and
its inverse for subsets of the
$d$-di\-men\-sio\-nal unit cube. They improve known results.
In particular, we determine the usually only implicitly given
constants.
The bounds are based on the construction of nearly optimal $\delta$-covers
of anchored boxes in the $d$-dimensional unit cube.
We give an explicit construction of low-discrepancy points with a derandomized
algorithm.
The running time of the algorithm, which is exponentially in $d$, is discussed
in
detail and comparisons with other methods are given.},

ABSTRACT = {Game tree search is the core of most attempts to teach computers play games. We
present a fairly general theoretical analysis on how evaluation error influence
the value estimation of a game position. We extend the work of Lorenz and
Monien [7] in two directions. Firstly, we allow arbitrary game values. By a
different approach, we show that also in this setting the number of
leaf-disjoint strategies proving a particular property is a key notion. This
number precisely describes the order of growth of the heuristic game value in
the terms of the quality of the leaf evaluation heuristics. Secondly, in allow
random nodes (rolls of a die). Surprisingly, this changes the situation: Still
the number of leaf-disjoint strategies ensures robustness against leaf
evaulation errors, but the converse is not true. An average node may produce
additional robustness like further leaf-disjoint strategies.},

ABSTRACT = {Jim Propp’s P-machine, also known as ‘rotor router model’ is a simple
deterministic process that simulates random walk on a graph. Instead of
distributing chips
to randomly chosen neighbors, it serves the neighbors in a fixed order.
We investigate how well this process simulates a random walk. For the graph
being the infinite path, we show that, independent of the starting
configuration, at each time and on each vertex, the number of chips on this
vertex deviates from the expected number of chips in the random walk model by
at most a constant c1, which is approximately 2.29. For intervals of length L,
this improves to a difference of O(log L) (instead of 2.29L), for the L2
average of a contiguous set of intervals even to O(√log L). It seems plausible
that similar results hold for higher-dimensional grids Zd instead of the path
Z.},

ABSTRACT = {The recently active research area of black-box complexity revealed that for
many optimization problems the best possible black-box optimization algorithm
is significantly faster than all known evolutionary approaches. While it is not
to be expected that a general-purpose heuristic competes with a
problem-tailored algorithm, it still makes sense to look for the reasons for
this discrepancy.
In this work, we exhibit one possible reason---most optimal black-box
algorithms profit also from solutions that are inferior to the previous-best
one, whereas evolutionary approaches guided by the ``survival of the fittest''
paradigm often ignore such solutions. Trying to overcome this shortcoming, we
design a simple genetic algorithm that first creates $\lambda$ offspring from a
single parent by mutation with a mutation probability that is $k$ times larger
than the usual one. From the best of these offspring (which often is worse than
the parent) and the parent itself, we generate further offspring via a uniform
crossover operator that takes bits from the winner offspring with probability
$1/k$ only.
A rigorous runtime analysis proves that our new algorithm for suitable
parameter choices on the \onemax test function class is asymptotically faster
(in terms of the number of fitness evaluations) than what has been shown for
$(\mu \stackrel{+}{,} \lambda)$ EAs. This is the first time that crossover is
shown to give an advantage for the $\onemax$ class that is
larger than a constant factor. Using a fitness-dependent choice of $k$
and~$\lambda$, the optimization time can be reduced further to linear in~$n$.
Our experimental analysis on several test function classes shows advantages
already for small problem sizes and broad parameter ranges. Also, a simple
self-adaptive choice of these parameters gives surprisingly good results.},

ABSTRACT = {We propose and analyze a novel genotype representation for walk and cycle
covers in graphs. Together with a natural mutation operator, it yields superior
algorithms based on randomized local search and (1+1) evolutionary algorithms.
In particular, we derive an evolutionary algorithm that computes an Euler tour
in a graph with $m$ edges in expected run-time $O(m \log m)$. This is
comparable to the best direct algorithm for this problem running in linear
time. Also, a simple coupon collector argument indicates that our run-time is
asymptotically optimal for any randomized search heuristic.},

ABSTRACT = {Neumann and Witt (2006) analyzed the runtime of
the basic ant colony optimization (ACO) algorithm
{\sc 1-Ant} on pseudo-boolean optimization problems.
For the problem {\sc OneMax} they showed how the runtime depends
on the evaporation factor. In particular, they proved a phase
transition from exponential to polynomial runtime.
In this work, we simplify the view on this problem by
an appropriate translation of the pheromone model.
This results in a profound simplification of
the pheromone update rule and, by that,
a refinement of the results of Neumann and Witt.
In particular, we show how the exponential runtime bound
gradually changes to a polynomial bound inside the phase of
transition.},

ACO system performs well, it basically simulates the much simpler (1+1)

ABSTRACT = {Extending previous analyses on function classes like linear functions, we
analyze how the simple (1+1) evolutionary algorithm optimizes pseudo-Boolean
functions that are strictly monotone.
Contrary to what one would expect, not all of these functions are easy to
optimize. The choice of the constant $c$ in the mutation probability $p(n) =
c/n$ can make a decisive difference.
We show that if $c < 1$, then the \EA finds the optimum of every such
function in $\Theta(n \log n)$ iterations. For $c=1$, we can still prove an
upper bound of $O(n^{3/2})$.
However, for $c > 33$, we present a strictly monotone function such that the
\EA with overwhelming
probability does not find the optimum within $2^{\Omega(n)}$
iterations. This is the first time that we observe that a constant factor
change of the mutation probability changes the run-time by more than constant
factors.},

ABSTRACT = {Drift analysis is one of the strongest tools in the analysis
of evolutionary algorithms. Its main weakness is that it is
often very hard to find a good drift function.
In this paper, we make progress in this direction. We
prove a multiplicative version of the classical drift theorem.
This allows easier analyses in those settings, where the optimization progress
is roughly proportional to the current
objective value.
Our drift theorem immediately gives natural proofs for
the best known run-time bounds for the (1+1) Evolutionary
Algorithm computing minimum spanning trees and shortest
paths, since here we may simply take the objective function
as drift function.
As a more challenging example, we give a relatively simple
proof for the fact that any linear function is optimized in
time $O(n \log n)$. In the multiplicative setting, a simple linear
function can be used as drift function (without taking any
logarithms).
However, we also show that, both in the classical and the
multiplicative setting, drift functions yielding good results
for all linear functions exist only if the mutation probability
is at most $c/n$ for a small constant $c$.},

runtime of randomized search heuristics such as evolutionary algorithms. Our
multiplicative version of the classical drift theorem allows easier analyses in
the often encountered situation that the optimization progress is roughly
proportional to the current distance to the optimum.
To display the strength of this tool, we regard the classical problem of how
the (1+1) Evolutionary Algorithm optimizes an arbitrary linear pseudo-Boolean
function. Here, we first give a relatively simple proof for the fact that any
linear function is optimized in expected time $O(n \log n)$, where $n$ is the

optimized in expected time at most $(1+o(1))1.39 e n\ln n$, again using
multiplicative drift analysis. We also prove a corresponding lower bound of
$(1−o(1)) e n \ln n$ which actually holds for all functions with a unique
global optimum.
We further demonstrate how our drift theorem immediately gives natural proofs
(with better constants) for the best known runtime bounds for the (1+1)
Evolutionary Algorithm on combinatorial problems like finding minimum spanning
trees, shortest paths, or Euler tours in graphs.},

ABSTRACT = {Black-box complexity, counting the number of queries needed to find the optimum
of a problem without having access to an explicit problem description, was
introduced by Droste, Jansen, and Wegener (Theory of Computing Systems
39 (2006) 525--544) to measure the difficulty of solving an optimization
problem via generic search heuristics such as evolutionary algorithms,
simulated annealing or ant colony optimization.
Since then, a number of similar complexity notions were introduced. However, so
far these new notions were only analyzed for artificial test problems. In this
paper, we move a step forward and analyze the different black-box complexity
notions for two classic combinatorial problems, namely the minimum spanning
tree and the single-source shortest path problem. Besides proving bounds for
their black-box complexities, our work reveals that the choice of how to model
the optimization problem has a significant influence on its black-box
complexity. In addition, when regarding the unbiased (symmetry-invariant)
black-box complexity of combinatorial problems, it is important to choose a
meaningful definition of unbiasedness.},

Also for these special cases, our approach is the first that can be
derandomized. For the bipartite edge weight rounding problem, in addition, we
gain an factor run-time improvement for generating the randomized solution.
We also improve the current best result on the general problem of derandomizing
randomized roundings. Here we obtain a simple O(mnlog n) time algorithm that
works in the RAM model for arbitrary matrices with entries in . This improves
over the O(mn2 log(mn)) time solution of Srivastav and Stangier.},

the most prominent case $k = n$, our results imply that Codebreaker can find
the secret code with $O(n \log \log n)$ guesses. This bound is valid also when
only black answer-pegs are used. It improves the $O(n \log n)$ bound first
proven by Chv\'atal (Combinatorica 3 (1983), 325--329). We also show that if
both black and white answer-pegs are used, then the $O(n \log\log n)$ bound
holds for up to $n^2 \log\log n$ colors. These bounds are almost tight as the
known lower bound of $\Omega(n)$ shows. Unlike for $k \le n^{1-\eps}$, simply
guessing at random until the secret code is determined is not sufficient. In
fact, we show that any non-adaptive strategy needs an expected number of
$\Omega(n \log n)$ guesses.},

ABSTRACT = { A problem arising in integer linear programming is transforming a solution of
a linear system to an integer one that is "close." The customary model for
investigating such problems is, given a matrix A and a [0,1]-valued vector x,
finding a binary vector y such that ||A(x - y)||∞, the maximum violation of the
constraints, is small. Randomized rounding and the algorithm of Beck and Fiala
are ways to compute such solutions y, whereas linear discrepancy is a lower
bound measure. In many applications one is looking for roundings that, in
addition to being close to the original solution, satisfy some constraints
without violation. The objective of this paper is to investigate such problems
in a unified way. To this aim, we extend the notion of linear discrepancy to
include such hard cardinality constraints. We extend the algorithm of Beck and
Fiala to cope with this setting. If the constraints contain disjoint sets of
variables, the rounding error increases by only a factor of two. We also show
how to generate and derandomize randomized roundings respecting disjoint
cardinality constraints. However, we also provide some examples showing that
additional hard constraints may seriously increase the linear discrepancy. In
particular, we show that the c-color linear discrepancy of a totally unimodular
matrix can be as high as Ω(log c). },

ABSTRACT = {Randomized search heuristics are a broadly used class of general-purpose
algorithms. Analyzing them via classical methods of theoretical computer
science is a growing field. A big step forward would be a useful complexity
theory for such algorithms. We enrich the two existing black-box complexity
notions due to Wegener and other authors by the restrictions that not actual
objective values, but only the relative quality of the previously evaluated
solutions may be taken into account by the algorithm. Many randomized search
heuristics belong to this class of algorithms. We show that the new
ranking-based model gives more realistic complexity estimates for some
problems, while for others the low complexities of the previous models still
hold.},

TITLE = {A Quasi-PTAS for Envy-free Pricing on Line Graphs},
MONTH = {January},
YEAR = {2007},
ABSTRACT = {We consider the problem of pricing items so as to maximize the profit made from
selling these items. An
instance is given by a set $E$ of $n$ items and a set of $m$ clients, where
each client is specified by one
subset of $E$ (the bundle of items he wants to buy), and a budget, which is the
maximum price he wants to pay
for the subset.
We restrict to the model where the subsets can be arranged such that they form
intervals of a line graph. We give
a quasi-polynomial time approximation scheme for the capacitated and
uncapacitated problem. In the latter
problem, also known as the highway problem, there is an infinite supply of any
item. Hence, we assume that
any client that can afford its bundle will buy it. In the capacitated problem
there is only a limited supply
of any item. Hence, we have to set prices as well to find a subset of the
clients such that the supply
constraints are satisfied. This problem is closely related to the unsplittable
flow problem on line graphs
for which a quasi-PTAS was developed only recently.},

MONTH = {February},

ABSTRACT = {The well-known vertex enumeration problem calls for generating all the
vertices of a polyhedron, given by its description as a system of linear
inequalities. Recently, a number of combinatorial techniques have been
developed and applied successfully to a large number of enumeration
problems in different areas. We consider four such techniques and give several
examples where they are
applicable to the vertex enumeration problem, and also discuss some of
their limitations.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider the problem of pricing items so as to maximize the profit made from

instance is given by a set $E$ of $n$ items and a set of $m$ clients, where
each client is specified by one

(valuation), which is the maximum price he is willing to pay
for that subset.
We restrict our attention to the model where the subsets can be arranged such
that they form intervals of a line graph. Assuming an unlimited supply of any
item, this problem is known as \emph{the
highway problem} and so far only an $O(\log n)$-approximation algorithm is
known. We show that a PTAS is likely to exist by presenting a quasi-polynomial
time approximation scheme.
We also combine our ideas with a recently developed quasi-PTAS for the
unsplittable flow problem on line graphs to extend this approximation scheme to
the limited supply version of the pricing problem.},

ABSTRACT = {Let $\cH\subseteq 2^V$ be a hypergraph on vertex set $V$. For a positive
integer $r$, we call $\cH$ $r$-exact, if
any minimal transversal of $\cH$ intersects any hyperedge of $\cH$ in at most
$r$ vertices.
This class includes several interesting examples from geometry, e.g.,
circular-arc hypergraphs ($r=2$), hypergraphs defined by sets of axis-parallel
lines stabbing a given set of $\alpha$-fat objects ($r=4\alpha$), and
hypergraphs defined by sets of points contained in translates of a given cone
in the plane ($r=2$). For constant $r$, we give a polynomial-time algorithm for
the duality testing problem of a pair of $r$-exact hypergraphs. This result
implies that minimal hitting sets for the above geometric hypergraphs can be
generated in output-sensitive polynomial time. },

ABSTRACT = {The computation of the topological shape of a real algebraic plane curve is
usually driven by the study of the behavior of the curve around its critical
points (which includes also the singular points). In this paper we present a
new algorithm computing the topological shape of a real algebraic plane curve
whose complexity is better than the best algorithms known. This is due to the
avoiding, through a sufficiently good change of coordinates, of real root
computations on polynomials with coefficients in a simple real algebraic
extension of $\mathbb{Q}$ to deal with the critical points of the considered
curve. In fact, one of the main features of this algorithm is that its
complexity is dominated by the characterization of the real roots of the
discriminant of the polynomial defining the considered curve.},

YEAR = {2000},
PAGES = {161--179},
ABSTRACT = {In this paper we give a semi-algebraic description of Hopf bifurcation fixed
points for
a given parameterized polynomial vector field. The description is carried out
by use of
the Hurwitz determinants, and produces a first-order formula which is
transformed into
a quantifier free formula by use of usual quantifier elimination algorithms. We
apply
techniques from the theory of sub-resultant sequences and of Gr¨obner bases to
come up
with efficient reductions, which lead to quantifier elimination questions that
can often
be handled by existing quantifier elimination packages.
We could implement the algorithms for the conditions on Hopf bifurcations by
combining
the computer algebra system Maple with packages for quantifier elimination using
a Java based component architecture recently developed by the second author. In
addition
to some textbook examples we applied our software system to an example discussed
in a recent research paper.},

ABSTRACT = {In this paper we give algorithms for solving linear complementarity problems
for $\mathcal{P}$-matrices and symmetric positive semidefinite matrices. Our
approach of the problem turns out to be an improvement and a more precise
formulation of Baraff’s method for problems arising from collision response.
The theorems that prove the correctness of our algorithm can also be used to
prove the correctness of Baraff’s algorithm.
An important feature of the method we present lies in its validity for
arbitrary real closed fields, thus it is well suited to handle, at least
locally, parametric linear complementarity problems.
This article presents the theoretical principles of the algorithms and gives
detailed pseudo-code descriptions of them. },

curves in projective quasi-generic position. This allows us to
give bounds on degree for some well known classes of curves
such as the nonsingular ones and curves with ordinary nodes.
We also give a bound on degree for any invariant curve in terms
of the maximum Tjurina number of its singularities and the
degree of the vector field.},

coupled systems of ordinary differential equations, in which case the

conditions for such models can be done fully algorithmically using quantifier
elimination for real closed fields and related simplification methods for
quantifier-free formulas. Using efficient quantifier elimination techniques for
special cases that have been developed by Weispfenning and others, we can also
compute whether there are ranges of parameters for which sub-threshold endemic
equilibria exist.},

unless the number of inversions is less than $1.5\%$; in such case Splaysort
has the shortest running time.
Another interesting result is that although the number of cache misses for the
cache-optimal Greedysort algorithm was the least, compared to other adaptive
sorting algorithms under investigation, it was outperformed by Quicksort.},

ABSTRACT = {We introduce a framework for reducing the number of element
comparisons performed in priority-queue operations. In particular, we
give a priority queue which guarantees the worst-case cost of $O(1)$
per minimum finding and insertion, and the worst-case cost of $O(\log
n)$ with at most $\log n + O(1)$ element comparisons per minimum
deletion and deletion, improving the bound of $2\log n + O(1)$ known for
binomial queues. Here, $n$ denotes the number of elements stored in the
data structure prior to the operation in question, and $\log n$ equals
$\log_2(\max\set{2, n})$. As an immediate application of the priority queue
developed, we obtain a sorting algorithm that is optimally adaptive with
respect to the inversion measure of disorder, and that sorts a sequence
having $n$ elements and $I$ inversions with at most $n \log (I/n) + O(n)$
element comparisons.},

ABSTRACT = {We introduce two data-structural transformations to construct double-ended
priority queues from priority queues. To apply our transformations the priority
queues exploited must support the
extraction of an unspecified element, in addition to the standard
priority-queue operations. With the first transformation we obtain a
double-ended priority queue which guarantees the worst-case cost of $O(1)$ for
\Findmin{}, \Findmax{}, \Insert{}, \Extract{}; and the worst-case cost of
$O(\lg n)$ with at most $\lg n + O(1)$ element comparisons for \Delete{}. With
the second transformation we get a meldable double-ended priority queue which
guarantees the worst-case cost of $O(1)$ for \Findmin{}, \Findmax{}, \Insert{},
\Extract{}; the worst-case cost of $O(\lg n)$ with at most $\lg n + O(\lg \lg
n)$ element comparisons for \Delete{}; and the worst-case cost of
$O(\min\set{\lg m, \lg n})$ for \Meld{}. Here, $m$ and $n$ denote the number
of elements stored in the data structures prior to the operation in question.},

heaps. Namely, find-min requires $O(1)$ worst-case time, insert, meld and

amortized time. Our structure is simple and promises a more efficient practical

ABSTRACT = {This thesis presents an exact and complete approach for visualization of
segments and points of real plane algebraic curves given in implicit form
$f(x,y) = 0$. A curve segment is a distinct curve branch consisting of regular
points
only. Visualization of algebraic curves having self-intersection and isolated
points constitutes the main challenge. Visualization of curve segments involves
even more
difficulties since here we are faced with a problem of discriminating
different curve branches, which can pass arbitrary close to each other.
Our approach is robust and efficient (as shown by our benchmarks), it
combines the advantages both of curve tracking and
space subdivision methods and is able to correctly rasterize segments of
arbitrary-degree algebraic curves using double, multi-precision or exact
rational arithmetic. },

ABSTRACT = {We consider online preemptive throughput scheduling of jobs with fixed
starting times on $m$ uniformly related machines, with the goal of
maximizing the profit of the completed jobs. In this problem, jobs are
released over time. Every job has a size and a weight associated with
it. A newly released job must be either assigned to start running
immediately on a machine or otherwise it is dropped. It is also
possible to drop an already scheduled job, but only completed jobs
contribute their weights to the profit of the algorithm.
In the most general setting, no algorithm has bounded competitive
ratio, and we consider a number of standard variants. We give a full
classification of the variants into cases which admit constant
competitive ratio (weighted and unweighted unit jobs, and C-benevolent
instances, which is a wide class of instances containing
proportional-weight jobs), and cases which admit only a linear
competitive ratio (unweighted jobs and D-benevolent instances). In
particular, we give a lower bound of $m$ on the competitive ratio for
scheduling unit weight jobs with varying sizes, which is tight. For
unit size and weight we show that a natural greedy algorithm is
$4/3$-competitive and optimal on $m=2$ machines, while for a large
$m$, its competitive ratio is between $1.56$ and $2$. Furthermore, no
algorithm is better than $1.5$-competitive.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider a scheduling problem where each job is controlled by a
selfish agent, who is only interested in minimizing its own cost,
which is defined as the total load on the machine that its job is
assigned to. We consider the objective of maximizing the minimum load
(cover) over the machines.
Unlike the regular makespan minimization problem, which was extensively
studied in a game theoretic context, this problem has not been
considered in this setting before.
We study the price of anarchy (\poa) and the price of stability (\pos).
Since these measures are unbounded already for two uniformly
related machines, we focus on identical machines. We show that
the $\pos$ is 1, and we derive tight bounds on the $\poa$ for
$m\leq6$ and nearly tight bounds for general $m$. In particular,
we show that the $\poa$ is at least 1.691 for larger $m$ and at
most 1.7. Hence, surprisingly, the $\poa$ is less than the $\poa$
for the makespan problem, which is 2. To achieve the upper bound
of 1.7, we make an unusual use of weighting functions. Finally,
in contrast we show that the mixed $\poa$ grows exponentially with
$m$ for this problem, although it is only $\Theta(\log m/\log
\log m)$ for the makespan.
In addition we consider a similar setting with a different
objective which is minimizing the maximum ratio between the loads
of any pair of machines in the schedule. We show that under this
objective for general $m$ the $\pos$ is 1, and the $\poa$ is 2.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider online scheduling so as to maximize the minimum load,
using a reordering buffer which can store some of the jobs before
they are assigned irrevocably to machines.
For $m$ identical machines, we show an upper bound of $H_{m-1}+1$ for a buffer
of size $m-1$. A competitive ratio below $H_m$ is not possible with any fixed
buffer size, and it requires a buffer of size $\Omega(m/\log m)$ to get a ratio
of $O(\log m)$. For uniformly related machines, we show that a buffer of size
$m+1$ is sufficient to get a competitive ratio of $m$, which is best possible
for any fixed sized buffer.
We show similar results (but with different constructions) for
the restricted assignment model. We give tight bounds for two machines in all
the three models.
These results sharply contrast to the (previously known) results
which can be achieved without the usage of a reordering buffer,
where it is not possible to get a ratio below a competitive
ratio of $m$ already for identical machines, and it is impossible
to obtain an algorithm of finite competitive ratio in the other
two models, even for $m=2$. Our results strengthen the previous
conclusion that a reordering buffer is a powerful tool and it
allows a significant decrease in the competitive ratio of online
algorithms for scheduling problems. Another interesting aspect of
our results is that our algorithm for identical machines imitates
the behavior of a greedy algorithm on (a specific set of)
related machines, whereas our algorithm for related machines
completely ignores the speeds until all jobs have arrived, and then only uses
the relative order of the speeds.},

ABSTRACT = {We continue the study of bin packing with splittable items and
cardinality constraints. In this problem, a set of $n$ items must
be packed into as few bins as possible. Items may be split, but
each bin may contain at most $k$ (parts of) items, where $k$ is
some given parameter. Complicating the problem further is the fact
that items may be larger than 1, which is the size of a bin. The
problem is known to be strongly NP-hard for any fixed value of
$k$.
We essentially close this problem by providing an efficient
polynomial-time approximation scheme (EPTAS) for most of its
versions. Namely, we present an efficient polynomial time
approximation scheme for %values of $k$ such that
$k=o(n)$. A
PTAS for $k=\Theta (n)$ does not exist unless P $=$ NP.
Additionally, we present \emph{dual} approximation schemes for
$k=2$ and for constant values of $k$. Thus we show that for any
$\eps>0$, it is possible to pack the items into the optimal
number of bins in polynomial time, if the algorithm may use bins
of size $1+\eps$.},

ABSTRACT = {We present a unified framework for designing deterministic monotone polynomial
time approximation schemes (PTAS's) for a wide class of scheduling problems on
uniformly related machines. This class includes (among others) minimizing the
makespan, maximizing the minimum load, and minimizing the $\ell_p$ norm of the
machine loads vector. Previously, this kind of result was only known for the
makespan objective. Monotone algorithms have the property that an increase in
the speed of a machine cannot decrease the amount of work assigned to it.
The key idea of our novel method is to show that for goal functions that are
sufficiently well-behaved functions of the machine loads, it is possible to
compute in polynomial time a highly
structured nearly optimal schedule.
An interesting aspect of our approach is that, in contrast to all known
approximation schemes, we avoid rounding any job sizes or speeds throughout. We
can therefore find the \emph{exact} best structured schedule using dynamic
programming. The state space encodes a sufficient amount of information such
that no postprocessing is needed, allowing an elegant and relatively simple
analysis without any special cases. The monotonicity is a consequence of the
fact that we find the {\it best} schedule in a specific collection of schedules.
Monotone approximation schemes have an important role in the emerging area of
algorithmic mechanism design.
In the game-theoretical setting of these scheduling problems there is a social
goal, which is one of the objective functions that we study. Each machine is
controlled by a selfish single-parameter agent, where its private information
is its cost of processing a unit sized job, which is also the inverse of
the speed of its machine. Each agent wishes to maximize its own profit, defined
as the payment it receives from the mechanism minus its cost for processing all
jobs assigned to it, and places a bid which corresponds to its private
information.
For each one of the problems, we show that we can calculate payments that
guarantee truthfulness in an efficient manner. Thus, there exists a dominant
strategy where agents report their true speeds, and we show the existence of a
truthful mechanism which can be implemented in polynomial time, where the
social goal is approximated within a factor of $1+\eps$ for every $\eps>0$.},

simple $\frac 32$-approximation algorithm for this problem which
is in fact an online algorithm. This algorithm also has good
performance for the more general case where each bin may contain
at most $k$ parts of items. We show that this general case is
strongly NP-hard for any $k \geq 3$. Additionally, we design an
efficient approximation algorithm, for which the approximation
ratio can be made arbitrarily close to $\frac 75$.},

ABSTRACT = {Recent interest in Nash equilibria led to a study of the {\it
price of anarchy} (poa) and the {\it strong price of anarchy}
(spoa) for scheduling problems. The two
measures express the worst case ratio between the cost of an
equilibrium (a pure Nash equilibrium, and a strong equilibrium,
respectively) to the cost of a social optimum.
The atomic players are the jobs, and the delay of a job is the
completion time of the machine running it, also called the load
of this machine. The social goal is to minimize the maximum delay
of any job, while the selfish goal of each job is to minimize its
own delay, that is, the delay of the machine running it.
We consider scheduling on uniformly related machines. While
previous studies either consider identical speed machines or an
arbitrary number of speeds, focusing on the number of machines as
a parameter, we consider the situation in which the number of
different speeds is small. We reveal a linear dependence between
the number of speeds and the poa. For a set of machines of at
most $p$ speeds, the poa turns out to be exactly $p+1$. The
growth of the poa for large numbers of related machines is
therefore a direct result of the large number of potential speeds.
We further consider a well known structure of processors, where
all machines are of the same speed except for one possibly faster
machine. We investigate the poa as a function of both the speed
ratio between the fastest machine and the number of slow machines.},

ABSTRACT = {We study an on-line problem that is motivated by service calls management in a
remote support center. When a customer calls the remote support center of a
software company, a technician opens a service request and assigns it a
severity rating. This request is then transferred to the appropriate support
engineer (SE) who establishes a connection to the customer's site and uses
remote diagnostic capabilities to resolve the problem. We assume that the SE
can service at most one customer at time and a request service time is
negligible. There is a constant setup cost of creating a new connection to a
customer's site and a specific cost per request for delaying its service that
depends on the severity of the request. The problem is to decide which
customers to serve first so as to minimize the incurred cost. This problem with
just two customers is a natural generalization of the TCP acknowledgment
problem. For the on-line version of the Remote Server Problem (RSP), we present
algorithms for the general case and for a special casef of two customers that
achieve competitive ratios of exactly 4 and 3, respectively. We also show that
no deterministic on-line algorithm can have competitive ratio better than 3.
Then we study generalized versions of our model, these are the case of an
asymmetric setup cost function and the case of multiple SEs. For the off-line
version of the RSP, we derive an optimal algorithm with a polynomial running
time for a constant number of customers. },

operators can lead to good solutions much faster than other ones. We examine
this behavior observed in practice from a theoretical point of view and
investigate the effect of an asymmetric mutation operator in evolutionary
algorithms with respect to the runtime behavior. Considering the Eulerian cycle
problem we present runtime bounds for evolutionary algorithms using an
asymmetric operator which are much smaller than the best upper bounds for a
more general one. In our analysis it turns out that a plateau which both
algorithms have to cope with changes its structure in a way that allows the
algorithm to obtain an improvement much faster. In addition, we present a lower
bound for the general case which shows that the asymmetric operator speeds up
computation by at least a linear factor. },

ABSTRACT = {We consider the problem of highly space-efficient representation of separable
graphs while supporting queries in constant time in the RAM with logarithmic
word size. In particular, we show constant-time support for adjacency, degree
and neighborhood queries. For any monotone class of separable graphs, the
storage requirement of the representation is optimal to within lower order
terms. Separable graphs are those that admit a $O(n^c)$-separator theorem where
$c < 1$. Many graphs that arise in practice are indeed separable. For instance,
graphs with a bounded genus are separable. In particular, planar graphs (genus
$0$) are separable and our scheme gives the first succinct representation of
planar graphs with a storage requirement that matches the information-theory
minimum to within lower order terms with constant time support for the queries.
We, furthers, show that we can also modify the scheme to succinctly represent
the combinatorial planar embedding of planar graphs (and hence encode planar
maps).},

ABSTRACT = {In this paper we study the problem of
efficiently scheduling a wide class of multithreaded
computations, called {\em strict};
that is, computations in which all dependencies
from a thread go to the thread's
ancestors in the computation tree.
Strict multithreaded computations allow the
limited use of synchronization primitives.
We present the {\em first} fully distributed
scheduling algorithm which applies to {\em any}
strict multithreaded computation. The algorithm
is asynchronous, on-line and follows the
{\em work-stealing} paradigm. We prove that
our algorithm is efficient not only in terms of
its memory requirements and its execution time, but also in terms of its
communication complexity.
Our analysis applies to both shared and distributed memory
machines.
More specifically,
the expected execution time of our algorithm
is $O(T_1/P + hT_{\infty})$, where
$T_1$ is the minimum serial execution
time, $T_{\infty}$ is the minimum execution
time with an infinite number of processors,
$P$ is the number of processors
and $h$ is the maximum ``distance'' in the
{\em computation tree} between
any two threads that need to communicate.
Furthermore, the total space required during the execution
is $O(S_1 P)$, where $S_1$ is the space required
by a serial computer to execute the
computation, while the expected communication cost
incurred by our algorithm is $O(PhT_{\infty} (1+n_d) S_{max})$,
where $n_d$ is the maximum number of dependencies
entering any thread and $S_{max}$ is the largest
amount of storage needed for the execution of
any specific thread of the computation.
Our communication complexity bound is {\em the first}
nontrivial bound ever proved for the
model of strict parallel programming.

algorithms run in time $\Oh^{*}(2^{\Oh(\sqrt{k}\log k)})$, where
$k$ is the parameter, and significantly improve the previous
best algorithms with running times $\Oh^{*}(1.403^k)$ and
$\Oh^{*}(1.4656^k)$, respectively. We also study natural
``above-guarantee'' versions of these problems and show them to
be fixed parameter tractable. In fact, we show that the
above-guarantee versions of these problems are equivalent to a
weighted variant of {\sc $p$-Directed Feedback Arc Set}. Our
results for the above-guarantee version of \kagg{} reveal an
interesting contrast. We show that when the number of ``votes''
in the input to \kagg{} is {\em odd} the above guarantee version
can still be solved in time $O^{*}(2^{\Oh(\sqrt{k}\log k)})$,
while if it is {\em even} then the problem cannot have a
subexponential time algorithm unless
the exponential time hypothesis fails (equivalently, unless FPT$=$M[$1$]). },

ABSTRACT = {Broadcasting algorithms are of fundamental importance for distributed systems
engineering. In this paper we revisit the classical and well-studied
\emph{push} protocol for message broadcasting. Assuming that initially only one
node has some piece of information, at each stage every one of the informed
nodes chooses randomly and independently one of its neighbors and passes the
message to it.
The performance of the push protocol on a fully connected network, where each
node is joined by a link to every other node, is very well understood. In
particular, Frieze and Grimmett proved that with probability $1-o(1)$ the push
protocol completes the broadcasting of the message within $(1\pm \eps) (\log_2
n + \ln n)$ stages, where $n$ is the number of nodes of the network. However,
there are no tight bounds for the broadcast time on networks that are
significantly sparser than the complete graph.
In this work we consider random networks on $n$ nodes, where every edge is
present with probability $p$, independently of every other edge. We show that
if $p\geq {\alpha (n) \ln n \over n}$, where $\alpha(n)$ is any function that
tends to infinity as $n$ grows, then the push protocol broadcasts the message
within $(1\pm \eps) (\log_2 n + \ln n)$ stages with probability $1-o(1)$. In
other words, in almost every network of density $d$ such that $d \ge \alpha(n)
\ln n$, the push protocol broadcasts a message as fast as in a fully connected
network. This is quite surprising in the sense that the time needed remains
essentially \emph{unaffected} by the fact that most of the links are missing. },

ABSTRACT = {Wireless sensor networks typically consist of small, very simple network nodes
without any positioning device like GPS.
After an initialization phase, the nodes know with whom they can talk directly,
but have no idea about their relative geographic locations.
We examine how much geometry information is nevertheless hidden in the
communication graph of the network:
Assuming that the connectivity is determined by the well-known unit-disk graph
model, we prove that using an extremely simple linear-time algorithm
one can identify nodes on the boundaries of holes of the network. That is,
there is enough geometry information hidden in the connectivity structure
to identify topological features -- in our example the holes in the network.
While the theoretical analysis turns out to be quite conservative, an actual
implementation shows that the algorithm works well under less stringent
conditions.},

ABSTRACT = {Several routing schemes in ad hoc networks first establish a virtual backbone
and then route messages via backbone nodes. One common way of constructing such
a backbone is based on the construction of a connected dominating set (CDS). In
this article we present a very simple distributed algorithm for computing a
small CDS. Our algorithm has an approximation factor of at most 6.91, improving
upon the previous best-known approximation factor of 8 due to Wan et al.
[2002]. The improvement relies on a refined analysis of the relationship
between the size of a maximal independent set and a minimum CDS in a unit disk
graph. This subresult also implies improved approximation factors for many
existing algorithm. },

ABSTRACT = {In this work, we study the combinatorial structure and the computational
complexity of Nash equilibria for a certain game that models {\em selfish
routing}
over a network consisting of $m$ parallel {\em links}.
We assume a collection of {\em $n$ users,} each employing a {\em mixed
strategy,}
which is a probability distribution over links, to control the routing
of its own assigned {\em traffic}. In a {\em Nash equilibrium,}
each user selfishly routes its traffic on those links
that minimize its {\em expected latency cost,}
given the network congestion caused by the other users.
The {\em social cost} of a Nash equilibrium
is the expectation, over all random choices of the users,
of the maximum, over all links,
{\em latency} through a link.
We embark on a systematic study of several algorithmic problems
related to the computation of Nash equilibria for the selfish
routing game we consider. In a nutshell, these problems relate to
deciding the existence of a Nash equilibrium, constructing a Nash
equilibrium with given support characteristics, constructing the
{\em worst} Nash equilibrium (the one with {\em maximum} social
cost), constructing the {\em best} Nash equilibrium (the one with
{\em minimum} social cost), or computing the social cost of a
(given) Nash equilibrium. Our work provides a comprehensive
collection of efficient algorithms, hardness results (both as
$\NP$-hardness and $\#\Pc$-completeness results), and structural
results for these algorithmic problems. Our results span and
contrast a wide range of assumptions on the syntax of the Nash
equilibria and on the parameters of the system.},

ABSTRACT = {Wireless sensor networks have recently posed many new system building
challenges. One of the main problems is energy conservation since most of the
sensors are devices with limited battery life and it is infeasible to replenish
energy via replacing batteries. An effective approach for energy conservation
is scheduling sleep intervals for some sensors, while the remaining sensors
stay active providing continuous service. In this paper we consider the problem
of selecting a set of active sensors of minimum cardinality that maintains
sensing coverage and network connectivity. We study different variations of
this problem. The main contribution of this paper is a thorough investigation
of algorithms for covering an area with sensors that have fixed locations.},

ABSTRACT = {Most geometric algorithms are idealistic in the sense that they are designed
for the Real-RAM model of computation and for inputs in general
position. Real inputs may be degenerate and floating point arithmetic is
only an approximation of real arithmetic.
Perturbation replaces an input by a nearby input which is (hopefully)
in general position and on which the algorithm can be run with floating point
arithmetic. Controlled perturbation as proposed by Halperin et al. calls for
more: control over the amount of perturbation needed for a given precision of
the floating point system. Or conversely, a control over the precision needed
for a given amount of perturbation. Halperin et al.~gave controlled
perturbation schemes for arrangements of polyhedral surfaces, spheres, and
circles. We extend their work and point out that controlled perturbation is a
general scheme for converting idealistic algorithms into algorithms which can
be executed with floating point arithmetic. We also show how to use controlled
perturbation in the context of randomized geometric algorithms without
deteriorating the running time. Finally, we give concrete schemes for planar
Delaunay triangulations and convex hulls and Delaunay triangulations in
arbitrary dimensions. We analyze the relation between the
perturbation amount and the precision of the floating point system. We also
report about experiments with a planar Delaunay diagram algorithm. },

ABSTRACT = {We consider the problem of assigning powers to nodes of a wireless network in
the plane such that a message from a source node s reaches all other nodes
within a bounded number k of transmissions and the total amount of assigned
energy is minimized. By showing the existence of a coreset of size we are able
to (1 + $\varepsilon$)-approximate the bounded-hop broadcast problem in time linear in n
which is a drastic improvement upon the previously best known algorithm.
While actual network deployments often are in a planar setting, the experienced
metric for several reasons is typically not exactly of the Euclidean type, but
in some sense ’close’. Our algorithm (and others) also work for non-Euclidean
metrics provided they exhibit a certain similarity to the Euclidean metric
which is known in the literature as bounded doubling dimension. We give a novel
characterization of such metrics also pointing out other applications such as
space-efficient routing schemes.

ABSTRACT = {Flows over time (also called dynamic flows)
generalize standard network flows by introducing
an element of time. They naturally model problems where
travel and transmission are not instantaneous. Solving these problems
raises issues that do not arise in standard network flows.
One issue is the question of storage of flow at intermediate nodes.
In most applications
(such as, e.g., traffic routing, evacuation planning,
telecommunications etc.), intermediate storage is limited, undesired,
or prohibited.
The minimum cost flow over time problem is NP-hard. In this paper we
1)~prove that the minimum cost flow over time never requires storage;
2)~provide the first approximation scheme for minimum cost flows over
time that does not require storage; 3)~provide the first approximation
scheme for minimum cost flows over time that meets hard cost
constraints, while approximating only makespan.
Our approach is based on a condensed variant of time-expanded
networks. It also yields fast approximation schemes with simple
solutions for the quickest multicommodity flow problem.
Finally, using completely different techniques, we describe a very
simple capacity scaling FPAS for the minimum cost flow over time
problem when costs are proportional to transit times.
The algorithm builds upon our observation about the
structure of optimal solutions to this problem:
they are universally quickest flows. Again, the FPAS
does not use intermediate node storage.
In contrast to the preceding algorithms that use a
time-expanded network, this FPAS runs directly on the original
network.},

VOLUME = {152},

ABSTRACT = {In this paper, we prove two general lower bounds for algebraic
decision trees which test membership in a set $S\subseteq R^n$ which is
defined by linear inequalities.
Let $rank(S)$ be
the maximal dimension of a linear subspace contained in the closure of
$S$ {in the Euclidean topology}.
First we show that any decision tree for $S$ which uses
products of linear functions (we call such functions
{\em mlf-functions}) must have depth at least $n-rank(S)$.
This solves an open question raised by A.C.~Yao and
can be used to show
that mlf-functions are not really more powerful
than simple comparisons between the input variables when
computing the largest $k$ out of $n$ elements.
Yao proved this result in the special case when
products of at most two linear functions are allowed.
Out proof also shows that any decision tree for this problem
must have exponential size.
Using the same methods, we can give an
alternative proof of Rabin's Theorem, namely
that the depth of any decision tree for $S$ using arbitrary
analytic functions is at least $n-rank(S)$.},

we develop an approximate Voronoi diagram of size $O((n/\epsilon^d)\log

required $\Omega(n \log n)$ per query pair $(p,q)$. In this paper we
relax the exactness requirement and only require approximate
$(1+\epsilon)$ solutions which allows us to derive schemes which
guarantee constant query time using linear space and
$O(n\log n)$ preprocessing time. The dependence on $\epsilon$ is
polynomial in $1/\epsilon$.
One tool used might be of independent interest:
For any pair of points $(p,q)\in P\subseteq\mathbb{Z}^2$
report in constant time the cluster pair $(A,B)$ representing $(p,q)$
in a well-separated pair decomposition of $P$.},

ABSTRACT = {The Frequency Assignment Problem (FAP) in radio networks is the problem of
assigning frequencies to transmitters exploiting frequency reuse while keeping
signal interference to acceptable levels.
The FAP is usually modelled by variations of the graph coloring problem. The
Radiocoloring (RC) of a graph $G(V, E)$ is an assignment function $\Phi : V
\mapsto N$ such that $|\Phi(u) - \Phi(v)| \geq 2$, when $u, v$ are neighbors in
$G$, and $|\Phi(u) - \Phi(v)| \geq 1$ when the distance of $u, v$ in $G$ is
two. The range of frequencies used is called {\em span}. Here, we consider the
optimization version of the Radiocoloring
Problem (RCP) of finding a radiocoloring assignment of minimum span, called
{\em min span RCP}.
In this paper, we deal with a variation of RCP: that of satisfying frequency
assignment requests with some {\em periodic} behavior. In this case, the
interference graph is an (infinite) periodic graph. Infinite periodic graphs
model finite networks that accept periodic (in time, e.g. daily) requests for
frequency assignment. Alternatively, they may model very
large networks produced by the repetition of a small graph.
A {\em periodic graph $G$} is defined by an infinite two-way sequence of
repetitions of the same finite graph $G_i(V_i, E_i)$. The edge set of $G$ is
derived by connecting the vertices of each iteration $G_i$ to some of the
vertices of the next iteration $G_{i+1}$, the same for all $G_i$. The
model of periodic graphs considered here is similar to that of periodic graphs
in Orlin [13], Marathe et al [10]. We focus on planar periodic graphs, because
in many cases real networks are planar and also because of their independent
mathematical interest. We give two basic results:
- We prove that the min span RCP is PSPACE-complete for periodic planar graphs.
- We provide an $O(n(\Delta(G_i) + \sigma))$ time algorithm, (where $|V_i| =
n$, $\Delta(G_i)$ is the maximum degree of the graph $G_i$ and $\sigma$ is the
number of edges connecting each $G_i$ to $G_{i+1})$, which obtains a
radiocoloring of a periodic planar graph G that {\em approximates the minimum
span within a ratio which tends to 2 as $\Delta(G_i) + \sigma$ tends to
infinity}.},

ABSTRACT = {We study a general class of problems called $p$-\textsc{$\mathcal{F}$-Deletion}
problems. In an $p$-\textsc{$\mathcal{F}$-Deletion} problem, we
are asked whether a subset of at most $k$ vertices can be deleted from a
graph
$G$ such that the resulting graph does not contain as a minor any graph from
the
family ${\cal F}$ of forbidden minors. We obtain a number of algorithmic
results
on the $p$-\textsc{$\mathcal{F}$-Deletion} problem when $\mathcal{F}$ contains
a planar graph. We give
\begin{itemize}
\item a linear vertex kernel on graphs excluding $t$-claw $K_{1,t}$, the star
with $t$ leves, as an induced subgraph, where $t$ is a fixed integer.
\item an approximation algorithm achieving an approximation ratio of
$O(\log^{3/2} OPT)$, where $OPT$ is the size of an optimal solution on general
undirected graphs.
\end{itemize}
Finally, we obtain polynomial kernels for the case when $\cal F$ only
contains graph $\theta_c$
as a minor for a fixed integer $c$. The graph $\theta_c$
consists of two
vertices connected by $c$ parallel edges. Even though this may appear to be a
very restricted class
of problems it already encompasses well-studied problems such as {\sc Vertex
Cover}, {\sc Feedback Vertex Set} and \textsc{Diamond Hitting Set}
.
The generic kernelization algorithm is based on a non-trivial application of
protrusion techniques, previously used only for problems on
topological graph classes.},

ABSTRACT = {The \textsc{Minimum Fill-in} problem is to decide if a graph can
be triangulated by adding at most $k$ edges. The problem has
important applications in numerical algebra, in particular in
sparse matrix computations. We develop kernelization algorithms
for the problem on several classes of sparse graphs. We obtain
linear kernels on planar graphs, and kernels of size
$O(k^{3/2})$ in graphs excluding some fixed graph as a minor
and in graphs of bounded degeneracy. As a byproduct of our
results, we obtain approximation algorithms with approximation
ratios $O(\log{k})$ on planar graphs and
$O(\sqrt{k}\log{k})$ on $H$-minor-free graphs. These results
significantly improve the previously known kernelization and
approximation results for \textsc{Minimum Fill-in} on sparse
graphs.},

ABSTRACT = {Formal verification of complex algorithms is challenging. Verifying their
implementations goes beyond the state of the art of
current verification tools and proving their correctness usually
involves non-trivial mathematical theorems.
Certifying algorithms compute in addition to each output a
witness certifying that the output is correct. A checker for such a witness
is usually much simpler than the original algorithm -- yet it is all the
user has to trust. Verification of checkers is feasible with current tools and
leads to computations that can be completely trusted.
In this paper we develop a framework to seamlessly verify certifying
computations. The automatic verifier VCC is used for checking code
correctness, and the interactive theorem prover Isabelle/HOL targets
high-level mathematical properties of algorithms. We demonstrate the
effectiveness of our approach by applying it to the verification of
the algorithmic library LEDA.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider the problem of Online Facility Location, where demands arrive
online and must be irrevocably assigned to an open facility upon arrival. The
objective is to minimize the sum of facility and assignment costs. We prove
that the competitive ratio for Online Facility Location is $\Theta(\frac{\log
n}{\log\log n})$. On the negative side, we show that no randomized algorithm
can achieve a competitive ratio better than $O(\frac{\log n}{\log\log n})$
against an oblivious adversary even if the demands lie on a line segment. On
the positive side, we present a deterministic algorithm achieving a competitive
ratio of $O(\frac{\log n}{\log\log n})$. The analysis is based on a
hierarchical decomposition of the optimal facility locations such that each
component either is relatively well-separated or has a relatively large
diameter, and a potential function argument which distinguishes between the two
kinds of components.},

and show how this yields a simple hash table data structure that stores $n$
elements in $(1+\epsilon)\,n$ memory cells, for any constant $\epsilon > 0$.
Assuming uniform hashing, accessing or deleting table entries takes at most $d
= O(\ln\frac{1}{\epsilon})$ probes and the expected amortized insertion time is
constant. This is the first dictionary that has worst case constant access time
and expected constant update time, works with $(1+\epsilon)\,n$ space, and
supports satellite information. Experiments indicate that $d=4$ choices suffice
for $\epsilon \approx 0.03$. We also describe a hash table data structure using
explicit constant time hash functions, using at most $d=
O(\ln^2\frac{1}{\epsilon})$ probes in the worst case.
A corollary is an expected linear time algorithm for finding maximum
cardinality matchings in a rather natural model of sparse random bipartite
graphs. },

ABSTRACT = {The rotor-router model is a simple deterministic analogue of random walk
invented by Jim Propp. Instead of distributing chips to randomly chosen
neighbors, it serves the neighbors in a fixed order. This thesis investigates
how well this process simulates
a random walk on an infinite two-dimensional grid. Independent of the starting
configuration, at each time and on each vertex, the number of chips on this
vertex deviates from the expected number of chips in the random walk model by
at most a constant $c$. It is proved that $7.2 < c < 11.8$ in general.
Surprisingly, these bounds depend on the order in which the neighbors are
served. It is also shown that in a generalized setting, where one just
requires that no neighbor gets more than
$\Delta$ chips more than another, there is also such a constant $c'$ with
$7.7\Delta < c' < 26.9\Delta$.},

ABSTRACT = {Randomness is a crucial component in the design and analysis of many efficient
algorithms.
This thesis covers three aspects of randomness in computer science.
In the first chapter we examine a deterministic analogue
to the random walk and prove that it resembles the random walk closely
on a two-dimensional grid, but not on regular trees. We also propose and
analyse
a quasirandom analogue to the broadcasting model for disseminating information
in networks
and show that it achieves similar or better broadcasting times with a greatly
reduced use of random bits.
In the second chapter we present the first average-case analysis of three
different
algorithms for maintaining a topological ordering of
the nodes of a directed acyclic graph under dynamic updates.
We prove an expected runtime
which is significantly less than the best known
worst-case bound for this problem.
We finish with a third chapter that deals with randomized search heuristics.
We examine the impact of different diversity mechanisms on the runtime of a
single-objective evolutionary algorithm. We also show how this can
exponentially slow down evolutionary algorithms for
multi-objective problems.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider the problem of computing minimum congestion, fault-tolerant,
redundant assignments of messages to faulty, parallel delivery channels. In
particular, we are given a set $K$ of faulty channels, each having an integer
capacity $c_i$ and failing independently with probability $f_i$. We are also
given a set $M$ of messages to be delivered over $K$, and a fault-tolerance
constraint $(1-\epsilon)$, and we seek a redundant assignment $\phi$; that
minimizes congestion ${\sf Cong}(\phi)$, i.e. the maximum channel load, subject
to the constraint that, with probability no less than $(1-\epsilon)$, all the
messages have a copy on at least one active channel. We present a
polynomial-time 4-approximation algorithm for identical capacity channels and
arbitrary message sizes, and a $2 \lceil \ln(|K|/\epsilon)/\ln(1/f_{{\rm max}})
\rceil$-approximation algorithm for related capacity channels and unit size
messages.
Both algorithms are based on computing a collection $\{K_1, \ldots, K_\nu\}$ of
disjoint channel subsets such that, with probability no less than (1-\epsilon),
at least one channel is active in each subset. The objective is to maximize the
sum of the minimum subset capacities. Since the exact version of this problem
is NP-complete, we provide a 2-approximation algorithm for identical
capacities, and a polynomial-time $(8+{\rm o}(1))$-approximation algorithm for
arbitrary capacities.},

ABSTRACT = {In a sensor network information from multiple nodes must usually be aggregated
in order to accomplish a certain task. A natural way to view this information
gathering is in terms of interactions between nodes that are producers of
information, e.g., those that have collected data, detected events, etc., and
nodes that are consumers of information, i.e., nodes that seek data or events
of certain types. Our overall goal in this paper is to construct efficient
schemes allowing consumer and producer nodes to discover each other so that the
desired information can be delivered quickly to those who seek it. Here,
efficiency means both limiting the redundancy of where producer information is
stored, as well as bounding the consumer query times. We introduce the notion
of distance-sensitive information brokerage and provide schemes for efficiently
bringing together information producers and consumers at a cost proportional to
the separation between them — even though neither the consumers nor the
producers know about each other beforehand.
Our brokerage scheme is generic and can be implemented on top of several
hierarchical routing schemes that have been proposed in the past, provided that
they are augmented with certain key sideway links. For such augmented
hierarchical routing schemes we provide a rigorous theoretical performance
analysis, which further allows us to prove worst case query times and storage
requirements for our information brokerage scheme. Experimental results
demonstrate that the practical performance of the proposed approaches far
exceeds their theoretical (worst-case) bounds. The presented algorithms rely
purely on the topology of the communication graph of the sensor network and do
not require any geographic location information.},

PAGES = {1--14},
ABSTRACT = {A fundamental class of problems in wireless communication is concerned with the
assignment of suitable transmission powers to wireless devices/stations such
that the resulting communication graph satisfies certain desired properties and
the overall energy consumed is minimized. Many concrete communication tasks in
a wireless network like broadcast, multicast, point-to-point routing, creation
of a communication backbone, etc. can be regarded as such a power assignment
problem.
This paper considers several problems of that kind; for example one problem
studied before in \cite{Carrots, Bilo} aims to select and assign powers to $k$
of the stations such that all other stations are within reach of at least one
of the selected stations. We improve the running time for obtaining a
$(1+\epsilon)$-approximate solution for this problem from
$n^{((\alpha/\epsilon)^{O(d)})}$ as reported by Bilo et al. (\cite{Bilo}) to
$O(n+ {(\frac{k^{2d+1}}{\epsilon^d})}^{\min{\{2k, (\alpha/\epsilon)^{O(d)}
\}}})$ that is, we obtain a running time that is \emph{linear} in the network
size. Further results include a constant approximation algorithm for the TSP
problem under squared (non-metric!) edge costs, which can be employed to
implement a novel data aggregation protocol, as well as efficient schemes to
perform $k$-hop multicasts. },

ABSTRACT = {The in-network aggregation and processing of information is what sets a sensor
network apart from a pure data acquisition device. One way to model the
exchange of information between the network nodes is to distinguish between
nodes that are \emph{producers} of information, i.e., those that have
collected data, detected events, etc., and nodes that are \emph{consumers} of
information, i.e., nodes that seek data or events of certain types. In this
paper we aim to support that exchange of information via a so-called
\emph{information brokerage} scheme. Main features of our proposed scheme are
that 1) it works in a location-free setting where nodes are unaware of their
geographic locations 2) it is robust to non-regular network topologies and 3)
it does not require the information producers and consumers to know of each
other. Our proposed scheme employs boundary detection algorithms which only
quite recently have been developed to extract geometry and topology information
even in location-free network deployments.},

ABSTRACT = { Two improved list-ranking algorithms are presented. The
``peeling-off'' algorithm leads to an optimal PRAM algorithm, but
was designed with application on a real parallel machine in mind.
It is simpler than earlier algorithms, and in a range of problem
sizes, where previously several algorithms where required for the
best performance, now this single algorithm suffices. If the problem
size is much larger than the number of available processors, then the
``sparse-ruling-sets'' algorithm is even better. In previous
versions this algorithm had very restricted practical application
because of the large number of communication rounds it was
performing. This weakness is overcome by
adding two new ideas, each of which reduces the number of
communication rounds by a factor of two.},

ABSTRACT = { Optimal randomized and deterministic algorithms have been given for $k$-$k$
routing on two-dimensional $n \times n$ meshes. The deterministic algorithm
is based on ``column-sort'' and exploits only part of the
features of the mesh. For small $n$ and moderate $k$, the lower-order terms
of this algorithm make it considerably more expensive than the
randomized algorithm. In this paper, we present a novel deterministic
algorithm, which, by exploiting the topology of the mesh, has lower-order
terms that are almost negligible, even smaller than those of the randomized
algorithm. An additional advantage of the new algorithm is that it routes
average-case packet distributions twice as fast as worst-case distributions.
In earlier algorithms this required additional steps for globally probing the
distribution.},

For 1-1 sorting on an $n \times n$ mesh, we give an algorithm that
runs in $2 \cdot n + o(n)$ steps, matching the distance bound, with
maximal queue size five. It is considerably simpler than earlier
algorithms. Another algorithm performs $k$-$k$ sorting in $k \cdot
n / 2 + o(k \cdot n)$ steps, matching the bisection bound.
Furthermore, we present {\em uni-axial} algorithms for row-major
sorting. We show that 1-1 sorting can
be performed in $2\breukk{1}{2} \cdot n + o(n)$ steps.
Alternatively, this problem is solved with maximal queue size five
in $4\breukk{1}{3} \cdot n$ steps, without any additional terms. },

ABSTRACT = { The mesh with optical reconfigurable buses is one of the strongest
interconnection networks one can think of. There is a constant-time
randomized selection algorithm. In this paper, a deterministic
selection algorithm is given that runs in $\go{(\log\log N)^2}$ time.
It was known that $h$-relations can be routed randomizedly in
$\go{h}$ time, here we show that the same can be achieved with a
deterministic algorithm. The sorting problem is analyzed in detail,
and a new faster algorithm is presented.},

ABSTRACT = { Sequential selection has been solved in linear time by Blum e.a.
Running this algorithm on a problem of size $N$ with $N > M$, the
size of the main-memory, results in an algorithm that reads and
writes $\go{N}$ elements, while the number of comparisons is also
bounded by $\go{N}$. This is asymptotically optimal, but the
constants are so large that in practice sorting is faster for
most values of $M$ and $N$.
This paper provides the first detailed study of the external
selection problem. A randomized algorithm of a conventional type is
close to optimal in all respects. Our deterministic algorithm is
more or less the same, but first the algorithm builds an index
structure of all the elements. This effort is not wasted: the index
structure allows the retrieval of elements so that we do not need a
second scan through all the data. This index structure can also
be used for repeated selections, and can be extended over time. For
a problem of size $N$, the deterministic algorithm reads $N + o(N)$
elements and writes only $o(N)$ elements and is thereby optimal to
within lower-order terms. },

an asymptotic formula for any $d=o(n^{1/3})$, provided that $H$ does not
contain almost all the edges of the random graph. The result is
further extended to the probability space
of random graphs with a given degree sequence.},

previous best approximation guarantee was O (i2k1/i) in time O (nik2i)
(Charikar, Chekuri, Goel, and Guha). Our algorithm also improves existing

constraints and for the symmetric generalized traveling salesman problem},

represent non-manifold situations, open and closed boundaries, and mixed

the completeness of the algorithms, and the exactness and efficiency of the
implementation. In particular, all degeneracies are handled.},

ABSTRACT = {We present two approaches to the problem of calculating a cell in a
3-dimensional arrangement of quadrics. The first approach solves the
problem using rational arithmetic. It works with reductions to
planar arrangements of algebraic curves. Degenerate
situations such as tangential intersections and self-intersections of
curves are intrinsic to the planar arrangements we obtain.
The coordinates of the intersection points are given by
the roots of univariate polynomials.
We succeed in locating all intersection points either by extended
local box hit counting arguments or by globally characterizing
them with simple square root expressions.
The latter is realized by a clever factorization of the univariate
polynomials. Only the combination of these two results
facilitates a practical and implementable algorithm.
The second approach operates directly in 3-space by applying
classical solid modeling techniques. Whereas the first
approach guarantees a correct solution in every case the second one
may fail in some degenerate situations. But with the
help of verified floating point arithmetic it can detect these
critical cases and is faster if the quadrics are in general
position.},

ABSTRACT = {LFthreads is a thread library entirely based on lock-free methods, i.e. no
spin-locks or similar synchronization mechanisms are employed in the
implementation of the multithreading. Since lock-freedom is highly desirable in
multiprocessors/multicores due to its advantages in parallelism,
fault-tolerance, convoy-avoidance and more, there is an increased demand in
lock-free methods in parallel applications, hence also in
multiprocessor/multicore system services. This is why a lock-free
multithreading library is important. To the best of our knowledge LFthreads is
the first thread library that provides a lock-free implementation of blocking
synchronization primitives for application threads. Lock-free implementation of
objects with blocking semantics may sound like a contradicting goal. However,
such objects have benefits: e.g. library operations that block and unblock
threads on the same synchronization object can make progress in parallel while
maintaining the desired thread-level semantics and without having to wait for
any ``slow'' operations among them. Besides, as no spin-locks or similar
synchronization mechanisms are employed, processors are always able to do
useful work. As a consequence, applications, too, can enjoy enhanced
parallelism and fault-tolerance. The synchronization in LFthreads is achieved
by a new method, which we call \emph{responsibility hand-off} (RHO), that does
not need any special kernel support.},

ABSTRACT = {We present a new algorithm for estimating the star discrepancy of arbitrary
point
sets. Similar to the algorithm for discrepancy approximation of Winker and Fang
[SIAM J. Numer.
Anal., 34 (1997), pp. 2028–2042] it is based on the optimization algorithm
threshold accepting. Our
improvements include, amongst others, a nonuniform sampling strategy, which is
more suited for
higher-dimensional inputs and additionally takes into account the topological
characteristics of given
point sets, and rounding steps which transform axis-parallel boxes, on which
the discrepancy is to be
tested, into critical test boxes. These critical test boxes provably yield
higher discrepancy values and
contain the box that exhibits the maximum value of the local discrepancy. We
provide comprehensive
experiments to test the new algorithm. Our randomized algorithm computes the
exact discrepancy
frequently in all cases where this can be checked (i.e., where the exact
discrepancy of the point set
can be computed in feasible time). Most importantly, in higher dimensions the
new method behaves
clearly better than all previously known methods.},

ABSTRACT = {The location of facilities in order to provide service for customers is a
well-studied problem in
the operations research literature. In the basic model, there is a predefined
cost for opening a facility
and also for connecting a customer to a facility, the goal being to minimize
the total cost. Often,
both in the case of public facilities (such as libraries, municipal swimming
pools, fire stations, ...)
and private facilities (such as distribution centers, switching stations, ...),
we may want to find a
‘fair’ allocation of the total cost to the customers—--this is known as the
cost allocation problem.
A central question in cooperative game theory is whether the total cost can be
allocated to the
customers such that no coalition of customers has any incentive to build their
own facility or to ask a
competitor to service them. We establish strong connections between fair cost
allocations and linear
programming relaxations for several variants of the facility location problem.
In particular, we show
that a fair cost allocation exists if and only if there is no integrality gap
for a corresponding linear
programming relaxation; this was only known for the simplest unconstrained
variant of the facility
location problem. Moreover, we introduce a subtle variant of randomized
rounding and derive new
proofs for the existence of fair cost allocations for several classes of
instances. We also show that it is
in general NP-complete to decide whether a fair cost allocation exists and
whether a given allocation
is fair.},

change can impact biodiversity. In this paper we describe an ecological
dispersal model developed for the specific case of predicting seed dispersal by
trees on a landscape for use in a forest simulation model. We present efficient
approximation algorithms for computing seed dispersal. These algorithms allow
us to simulate large landscapes for long periods of time. We also present
experimental results that (1) quantify the inherent uncertainty in the
dispersal model and (2) describe the variation of the approximation error as a
function of the approximation parameters. Based on these experiments, we
provide guidelines for choosing the right approximation parameters, for a given
model simulation. },

ABSTRACT = {In a generalized intersection searching problem, a set S of colored geometric
objects is to be preprocessed so that, given a query object q, the distinct
colors of the objects of S that are intersected by q can be reported or counted

searching problems and have many applications. Unfortunately, the solutions
known for the standard problems do not yield efficient solutions to the
generalized problems. Recently, efficient solutions have been given for
generalized problems where the input and query objects are iso-oriented (i.e.,
axes-parallel) or where the color classes satisfy additional properties (e.g.,
connectedness). In this paper, efficient algorithms are given for several
generalized problems involving objects that are not necessarily iso-oriented.
These problems include: generalized halfspace range searching in , for any
fixed d ≥ 2, and segment intersection searching, triangle stabbing, and
triangle range searching in for certain classes of line segments and triangles.
The techniques used include: computing suitable sparse representations of the
input, persistent data structures, and filtering search. },

ABSTRACT = {In a generalized intersection searching problem, a set S of colored geometric
objects is to be preprocessed so that, given a query object q, the distinct
colors of the objects of S that are intersected by q can be reported or counted
efficiently. These problems generalize the well-studied standard intersection
searching problems and have many applications. Unfortunately, the solutions
known for the standard problems do not yield efficient solutions to the

problem, which is motivated by a terrain-covering application in robotics:
Given a simply connected polygon $\cal P$ and values
\subrange{a}{1}{p+1} such that $\sum_{i = 1}^{p+1} a_i = Area({\cal P})$,
find a partitioning of $\cal P$ into $p+1$ polygons \subrange{P}{1}{p+1}
such that $Area(P_i) = a_i$ for all $i$ and polygon $P_{p+1}$ is connected
to each of the other polygons. The algorithm we present runs in
$O(n + q \log q + pn)$ time for a polygon with $n$ vertices that has
been partitioned into $q$ convex pieces.},

ABSTRACT = {Nef polyhedra in $d$-dimensional space are the closure of
half-spaces under boolean set operation. In consequence, they can
represent non-manifold situations, open and closed sets,
mixed-dimensional complexes and they are closed under all boolean
and topological operations, such as complement and boundary. They
were introduced by W. Nef in his seminal 1978 book on polyhedra.
We presented in previous work a new data structure for the boundary
representation of three-dimensional Nef polyhedra with
efficient algorithms for boolean operations. These algorithms were
designed for correctness and can handle all cases, in particular all
\emph{degeneracies}. To this extent we rely on exact
arithmetic to avoid well known problems with floating-point
arithmetic.
In this paper, we present important optimizations for the
algorithms. We describe the chosen implementations for the
point-location and the intersection-finding subroutines, a kd-tree
and a fast box-intersection algorithm, respectively. We evaluate
this optimized implementation with extensive experiments that
supplement the runtime analysis from our previous paper and that
illustrate the effectiveness of our optimizations. We compare our
implementation with the \textsc{Acis} CAD kernel and demonstrate the power and
cost of the exact arithmetic in near-degenerate situations.
The implementation was released as Open Source in the
\textsc{Cgal} release 3.1 in December 2004.},

ABSTRACT = {The formalism of monadic second-order (MS) logic has been very successful in
unifying a large number of algorithms for graphs of bounded treewidth. We
extend the elegant framework of MS logic from static problems to dynamic
problems, in which queries about MS properties of a graph of bounded treewidth
are interspersed with updates of vertex and edge labels. This allows us to
unify and occasionally strengthen a number of scattered previous results
obtained in an ad hoc manner and to enable solutions to a wide range of
additional problems to be
derived automatically.
As an auxiliary result of independent interest, we dynamize a data structure
of Chazelle for answering queries about products of labels along paths in a
tree with edges labeled by elements of a semigroup.},

ABSTRACT = { Flow variation over time is an important feature in network flow
problems arising in various applications such as road or air traffic
control, production systems, communication networks (e.g., the
Internet), and financial flows. The common characteristic are
networks with capacities and transit times on the arcs which specify
the amount of time it takes for flow to travel through a particular
arc. Moreover, in contrast to static flow problems, flow values on
arcs may change with time in these networks.
While the `maximum $s$-$t$-flow over time' problem can be solved
efficiently and `min-cost flows over time' are known to be NP-hard,
the complexity of (fractional) `multicommodity flows over time' has
been open for many years. We prove that this problem is NP-hard,
even for series-parallel networks, and present new and efficient
algorithms under certain assumptions on the transit times or on the
network topology. As a result, we can draw a complete picture of
the complexity landscape for flow over time problems.},

ABSTRACT = { Given a network with capacities and transit times on the arcs, the
quickest flow problem asks for a `flow over time' that satisfies
given demands within minimal time. In the setting of flows over
time, flow on arcs may vary over time and the transit time of an arc
is the time it takes for flow to travel through this arc. In most
real-world applications (such as, e.g., road traffic, communication
networks, production systems, etc.), transit times are not fixed but
depend on the current flow situation in the network. We consider
the model where the transit time of an arc is given as a
nondecreasing function of the rate of inflow into the arc. We prove
that the quickest $s$-$t$-flow problem is NP-hard in this setting
and give various approximation results, including an FPTAS for the
quickest multicommodity flow problem with bounded cost.},

ABSTRACT = {Rigorous runtime analyses of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) mainly investigate
algorithms that use elitist selection methods. Two algorithms commonly studied
are Randomized Local Search (RLS) and the (1+1)~EA and it is well known that
both optimize any linear pseudo-Boolean function on $n$ bits within an expected
number of $\ensuremath{{O}}(n \log n)$ fitness evaluations. In this paper, we
analyze variants of these algorithms that use fitness proportional selection.
A well-known method in analyzing the local changes in the solutions of RLS is a
reduction to the gambler's ruin problem. We extend this method in order to
analyze the global changes imposed by the (1+1)~EA. By applying this new
technique we show that with high probability using fitness proportional
selection
leads to an exponential optimization time for any linear pseudo-Boolean
function with non-zero weights. Even worse, all solutions of the algorithms
during an exponential number of fitness evaluations differ with high
probability in linearly many bits from the optimal solution.
Our theoretical studies are complemented by experimental investigations which
confirm the asymptotic results on realistic input sizes.},

ABSTRACT = {Given a list of $d$-dimensional cuboid items with associated profits, the
\emph{orthogonal knapsack problem} asks for a packing of a selection with
maximal profit into the unit cube. We restrict the items to hypercube shapes
and derive a $(\frac{5}{4}+\epsilon)$-approximation for the two-dimensional
case. In a second step we generalize our result to a
$(\frac{2^d+1}{2^d}+\epsilon)$-approximation for $d$-dimensional packing.},

ABSTRACT = {Orthogonal packing problems are natural multidimensional generalizations of the
classical \probname{Bin Packing Problem} and \probname{Knapsack Problem} and
occur in many different settings. The input consists of a set $I=\{r_1, \ldots,
r_n\}$ of $d$-dimensional rectangular items $r_i = (a_{i1}, \ldots, a_{id})$
and a space $B$. The task is to pack the items in an orthogonal,
non-rotational, non-overlapping manner into the given space. In the
\probname{Bin Packing} setting the space $B$ is an unlimited number of unit
sized bins and the goal is to minimize the number of used bins in order to pack
the whole list of items. In the \probname{Strip Packing} setting the space $B$
is given by a strip of bounded basis and unlimited height. The objective is to
pack all items into a strip of minimal height. Finally, in the
\probname{Knapsack Packing} setting the given space $B$ is a single, usually
unit sized bin and the items have an associated profit $p_i$. The goal is to
maximize the profit of a selection of items that can be packed into the bin.
In this thesis we present state-of-the-art algorithms for two-dimensional
\probname{Strip Packing} \cite{KenyonRemila2000} and \probname{Knapsack Packing
with large resources} \cite{FishkinGerberJansen2004} as well as for
multidimensional \probname{Bin Packing for hypercubes}
\cite{BansalCorreaKenyonSviridenko2005}. Furthermore, we describe our own
results on orthogonal packing problems restricted to hypercubes, i.e., a
$(\frac{5}{4}+\epsilon)$-approximation algorithm for \probname{Square Packing},
a $(\frac{2^d+1}{2^d}+\epsilon)$-approximation algorithm for $d$-dimensional
\probname{Knapsack Packing for hypercubes} and asymptotic polynomial time
approximation schemes (\complexity{APTAS}) for $d$-dimensional \probname{Strip
Packing for hypercubes} as well as for $d$-dimensional \probname{Knapsack
Packing with large Resources for hypercubes}. All of these results were
published in \cite{Harren2006} but especially for the latter two approximation

approximation ratios known for this problem.},

ABSTRACT = {Orthogonal packing problems are natural multidimensional generalizations of the
classical bin packing problem and knapsack problem and occur in many different
settings. The input consists of a set $I=\{r_1, \ldots, r_n\}$ of
$d$-dimensional rectangular items $r_i = (a_{i,1}, \ldots, a_{i,d})$ and a
space $Q$. The task is to pack the items in an orthogonal and non-overlapping
manner without using rotations into the given space. In the strip packing
setting the space $Q$ is given by a strip of bounded basis and unlimited
height. The objective is to pack all items into a strip of minimal height. In
the knapsack packing setting the given space $Q$ is a single, usually unit
sized bin and the items have associated profits $p_i$. The goal is to maximize
the profit of a selection of items that can be packed into the bin.
We mainly focus on orthogonal knapsack packing restricted to hypercubes and our
main results are a $(5/4+\epsilon)$-approximation algorithm for two-dimensional
hypercube knapsack packing, also known as square packing, and a $(1 +
1/2^d+\epsilon)$-approximation algorithm for $d$-dimensional hypercube knapsack
packing. In addition we consider $d$-dimensional hypercube strip packing in the
case of a bounded ratio between the shortest and longest side of the basis of
the strip. We derive an asymptotic polynomial time approximation scheme (APTAS)
for this problem.
Finally, we present an algorithm that packs hypercubes with a total profit of
at least $(1-\epsilon)\mathrm{OPT}$ into a large bin (the size of the bin
depends on $\epsilon$). This problem is known as hypercube knapsack packing
with large resources.
A preliminary version was published in [H., \emph{Approximating the orthogonal
knapsack problem for hypercubes}, ICALP 2006] but especially for the latter two
approximation schemes no details were given due to page limitations.},

symmetric product is {${ \Delta ^{d} \mathcal{H} = (V^{d},\{ E^{d} | E

{${c}$}-color discrepancy of such products. In particular, we show that the
bound {${ \textrm{disc}(\Delta ^{d} \mathcal{H},2)
{\leq}\textrm{disc}(\mathcal{H},2) }$} proven for all {${d}$} in [B.\ Doerr,
A.\ Srivastav, and P.\ Wehr, Discrepancy of {C}artesian products of arithmetic
progressions, Electron. J. Combin. 11(2004), Research Paper 5, 16 pp.] cannot
be extended to more than {${c = 2}$} colors. In fact, for any {${c}$} and
{${d}$} such that {${c}$} does not divide {${d!}$}, there are hypergraphs
having arbitrary large discrepancy and {${ \textrm{disc}(\Delta ^{d}
\mathcal{H},c) = \Omega_{d}(\textrm{disc}(\mathcal{H},c)^{d}) }$}. Apart from
constant factors (depending on {${c}$} and {${d}$}), in these cases the
symmetric product behaves no better than the general direct product
{${\mathcal{H}^{d}}$}, which satisfies {${ \textrm{disc}(\mathcal{H}^{d},c) =
O_{c,d}(\textrm{disc}(\mathcal{H},c)^{d}) }$}. },

It turns out that a plateau that both algorithms have to cope with is left
faster by the new algorithm. In addition, we present a lower bound for the
unrestricted algorithm which shows that the restricted operator speeds up
computation by at least a linear factor.},

ABSTRACT = {Estimating the discrepancy of the hypergraph of all arithmetic progressions in
the set $[N]=\{1,2,\hdots,N\}$ was one of the famous open problems in
combinatorial discrepancy theory for a long time. An extension of this
classical hypergraph is the hypergraph of sums of $k$ ($k\geq 1$ fixed)
arithmetic progressions. The hyperedges of this hypergraph are of the form
$A_{1}+A_{2}+\hdots+A_{k}$ in $[N]$, where the $A_{i}$ are arithmetic
progressions. For this hypergraph Hebbinghaus (2004) proved a lower bound of
$\Omega(N^{k/(2k+2)})$. Note that the probabilistic method gives an upper bound
of order $O((N\log N)^{1/2})$ for all fixed $k$. P\v{r}\'{i}v\v{e}tiv\'{y}
improved the lower bound for all $k\geq 3$ to $\Omega(N^{1/2})$ in 2005. Thus,
the case $k=2$ (hypergraph of sums of two arithmetic progressions) remained the
only case with a large gap between the known upper and lower bound. We bridge
his gap (up to a logarithmic factor) by proving a lower bound of order
$\Omega(N^{1/2})$ for the discrepancy of the hypergraph of sums of two
arithmetic progressions.},

our library design prototypical, we spent nonetheless a great effort on
completeness, exactness, efficiency, documentation and reusability. Beside its
primary contribution, the algorithm presented in this work had an essential
impact on fundamental parts of EXACUS due to its specific requirements. This
work has in particular contributed to the generic number type support and the
modular methods used within Exacus. In the context of our ongoing integration
of EXACUS into CGAL these parts have been successfully advanced into mature

ABSTRACT = {The problem of motion planning in three dimensions for $n$ tethered
robots is considered. Motivation for this problem comes from the
need to coordinate the motion of a group of tethered underwater
vehicles. The motion plan must be such that it can be executed without
the robots' tethers becoming tangled. The simultaneous-motion plan
is generated in three steps. First, an ordering of the robots is
produced that maximizes the number of robots that can move along
straight lines to their targets. Then paths for the robots are
computed assuming they move sequentially in the given order.
Two methods of computing the sequential-motion plan for the
robots are presented. The first method is computationally
simple but guarantees no bound on the path length with respect
to the optimal length; the second method guarantees nearly
optimal paths for the given ordering at the expense of additional
computation. Finally, trajectories are determined that allow the
robots to move simultaneously. The motion plan generated is
guaranteed not to result in tangled tethers. The algorithms we
present are shown to run in $O(n^4)$ time in total in the
worst case, which is less than the additional computation needed
to produce the nearly optimal paths using existing approximation
algorithms.},

YEAR = {2009},

ABSTRACT = {In this paper, we provide a detailed comparison between a fully randomized
protocol for rumour spreading on a complete graph
and a quasirandom protocol introduced by Doerr, Friedrich and Sauerwald (2008).
In the former, initially there is one vertex which
holds a piece of information and during each round every one of the informed
vertices chooses one of its neighbours uniformly at random
and independently and informs it. In the quasirandom version of this method
(cf. Doerr et al.) each vertex has a cyclic list of
its neighbours. Once a vertex has been informed, it chooses uniformly at random
only one neighbour. In the following round, it informs this neighbour and at
each subsequent round it picks the next neighbour from its list and informs it.
We give a precise analysis of the evolution of the quasirandom protocol on the
complete graph with $n$ vertices
and show that it evolves essentially in the same way as the randomized
protocol.
In particular, if $S(n)$ denotes the number of rounds that are needed until all
vertices are informed, we show that for any
slowly growing function $\omega (n)$
$$\log_2 n + \ln n - 4\ln \ln n \leq S(n) \leq \log_2 n + \ln n + \omega (n),$$
with probability $1-o(1)$. },

ABSTRACT = { We consider the problem of preemptively scheduling a set of $n$ jobs
on $m$ (identical, uniformly related, or unrelated) parallel
machines. The scheduler may reject a subset of the jobs and thereby
incur job-dependent penalties for each rejected job, and he must
construct a schedule for the remaining jobs so as to optimize the
preemptive makespan on the $m$ machines plus the sum of the
penalties of the jobs rejected.
We provide a complete classification of these scheduling problems
with respect to complexity and approximability. Our main results
are on the variant with an arbitrary number of unrelated machines.
This variant is \apx-hard, and we design a $1.58$-approximation
algorithm for it. All other considered variants are weakly
\np-hard, and we provide fully polynomial time approximation schemes
for them. Finally, we argue that our results for unrelated machines
can be carried over to the corresponding preemptive open shop
scheduling problem with rejection.},

ABSTRACT = {We present two problems in multiple-robot motion planning that can be quite
naturally solved using techniques from the parallel processing community to
dictate how the robots interact with each other and techniques from
computational geometry to apply these techniques in the geometric environment
in which the robots operate. The first problem we consider is a load-balancing
problem in which a pool of work must be divided among a set of
processors in order to minimize the amount of time required to complete all
the work. We describe a simple polygon partitioning algorithm that allows
techniques from parallel processor scheduling to be applied in the
multiple-robot setting in order to achieve a good balance of the work.
The second problem is that of collision avoidance, where one must avoid that
two (or more) processors occupy the same resource at the same time.
For this problem, we describe a procedure for robot interaction that is
derived from procedures used to shared-memory computers along with a geometric
data structure that can efficiently determine when there are potential
robot collisions.},

ABSTRACT = {We consider the problem of computing a minimum cycle basis in a directed graph.
The input to this problem is a directed graph G whose edges have non-negative
weights. A cycle in this graph is actually a cycle in the underlying undirected
graph with edges traversable in both directions. A {–1,0,1} edge incidence
vector is associated with each cycle: edges traversed by the cycle in the right
direction get 1 and edges traversed in the opposite direction get -1. The
vector space over generated by these vectors is the cycle space of G. A minimum
cycle basis is a set of cycles of minimum weight that span the cycle space of
G. The current fastest algorithm for computing a minimum cycle basis in a
directed graph with m edges and n vertices runs in time (where ω< 2.376 is the
exponent of matrix multiplication). Here we present an O(m3n + m2n2logn)
algorithm. We also slightly improve the running time of the current fastest
randomized algorithm from O(m2nlogn) to O(m2 n + mn2 logn).},

ABSTRACT = {In STOC 2006, Hayrapetyan, Tardos and Wexler introduced the problem
of studying collusion in network routing games. In this
work, we show that collusion adds significant
complexity to the structure of equilibria in nonatomic routing games,
answering an open question posed by
Cominetti, Correa, and Stier-Moses (ICALP 2006):
Without collusion, it follows from well-known convexity arguments
that equilibria exist and are unique (up to induced delays, and under
weak assumptions on delay functions). The question
is, does this uniqueness continue to hold in the presence of collusion?
We answer no: we show that if collusion is allowed in nonatomic routing games,
there may be multiple equilibria.
We demonstrate the multiplicity via two specific examples.
In addition, we show our examples are topologically minimal
by giving a complete characterization of the class of
network topologies for which unique equilibria exist. Our
proofs and examples are based on a novel characterization of
these topologies in terms of sets of circulations.},

ABSTRACT = {Parallel disks promise to be a cost effective means for achieving
high bandwidth in applications involving massive data sets, but
algorithms for parallel disks can be difficult to devise. To combat
this problem, we define a useful and natural duality between writing
to parallel disks and the seemingly more difficult problem of
prefetching. We first explore this duality for applications involving
read-once accesses using parallel disks. We get a simple linear time
algorithm for computing optimal prefetch schedules and analyze the
efficiency of the resulting schedules for randomly placed data and for
arbitrary interleaved accesses to striped sequences. Duality also
provides an optimal schedule for the integrated caching and
prefetching problem, in which blocks can be accessed multiple times.
Another application of this duality gives us the first parallel disk
sorting algorithms that are provably optimal up to lower order terms.
One of these algorithms is a simple and practical variant of multiway
merge sort, addressing a question that has been open for some time.},

ABSTRACT = {The declustering problem is to allocate given data on parallel working storage
devices in such a manner that typical requests find their data evenly
distributed on the devices. Using deep results from discrepancy theory, we
improve previous work of several authors concerning range queries to
higher-dimensional data. We give a declustering scheme with an additive error
of Od(logd-1M) independent of the data size, where d is the dimension, M the
number of storage devices and d-1 does not exceed the smallest prime power in
the canonical decomposition of M into prime powers. In particular, our schemes
work for arbitrary M in dimensions two and three. For general d, they work for
all Md-1 that are powers of two. Concerning lower bounds, we show that a recent
proof of a Ωd(log(d-1)/2M) bound contains an error. We close the gap in the
proof and thus establish the bound.},

in which servers have different costs. Previous work focused on the
case where the ratio between these costs was very large.
We give results for varying ratios.
For ratios below 2.2, we present an optimal algorithm which is trackless.
%Furthermore, our algorithm is trackless,
%which means that it is restricted from storing
%explicitly points from the metric space.
We present a general lower bound for trackless algorithms
depending on the cost ratio, proving that our algorithm
is the optimal trackless algorithm up to a constant factor
for any cost ratio.
The results are extended for the case where we have two sets of
servers with different costs.},

ABSTRACT = {Arranging n points as uniformly as possible is a frequently occurring problem.
It is equivalent to packing n equal and non-overlapping circles in a unit
square. In this paper we generalize this problem in such a way that points are
inserted one by one with uniformity preserved at every instance. Our criterion
for uniformity is to minimize the gap ratio (which is the maximum gap over the
minimum gap) at every point insertion. We present a linear time algorithm for
finding an optimal n-point sequence with the maximum gap ratio bounded by 2n/2
/(n/2+1) in the 1-dimensional case. We describe how hard the same problem is
for a point set in the plane and propose a local search heuristics for finding
a good solution.},

ABSTRACT = {We regard the problem of communication in the presence of faulty
transmissions. In contrast to the classical works in this area, we assume some
structure on the times when the faults occur. More realistic seems the model
that
all faults occur in some small time interval.
Like previous work, our problem can best be modelled as a two-player perfect
information game, in which one player (“Paul”) has to guess a number x from
{1, . . . , n} using Yes/No-questions, which the second player (“Carole”) has to
answer truthfully apart from few lies. In our setting, all lies have to be in a
consecutive
set of k rounds.
We show that Paul needs roughly log n + log log n + k rounds to determine the
number, which is only k more than the case of just one single lie.},

ABSTRACT = {Suppose that each member of a set A of applicants ranks a subset of a set P of
posts in an order of preference, possibly involving ties. A matching is a set
of (applicant, post) pairs such that each applicant and each post appears in at
most one pair. A rank-maximal matching is one in which the maximum possible
number of applicants are matched to their first choice post, and subject to
that condition, the maximum possible number are matched to their second choice
post, and so on. This is a relevant concept in any practical matching situation
and it was first studied by Irving [2003].We give an algorithm to compute a
rank-maximal matching with running time O(min(n + C,C√n)m), where C is the
maximal rank of an edge used in a rank-maximal matching, n is the number of
applicants and posts and m is the total size of the preference lists.},

presented. Consider an n-by-m rectangular grid and a set of N two-terminal
nets. A net is a pair of points on the boundary of the rectangle. A layout is a
set of edge-disjoint paths, one for each net. Our algorithm constructs a
layout, if there is one, in O(N log N) time; this contrasts favorably with the
area of the layout that might be as large as N2. The layout constructed can be
wired using four layers of interconnect with only O(N) contact cuts. A partial
extension to multiterminal nets is also discussed.},

ABSTRACT = {We present a simple linear-time algorithm constructing a~context-free grammar
of size $O(g \log (N/g))$
for the input string of size $N$, where
$g$ the size of the optimal grammar generating this string.
The algorithm works for arbitrary size alphabets,
but the running time is linear assuming that the alphabet $\Sigma$ of the input
string
is a subset of $\{1,\ldots , N^c \}$ for some constant $c$.
Algorithms with such an approximation guarantees and running time are known,
the novelty of this paper is the particular simplicity of the algorithm
as well as the analysis of the algorithm, which uses a general
technique of recompression recently introduced by the author.
Furthermore, contrary to the previous results, this work does not use the LZ
representation
of the input string in the construction, nor in the analysis.},

over a unary alphabet $\Sigma=\{a\}$ have non-trivial expressive power, and
that their basic properties are undecidable. The key result is that for every
base $k \geqslant 11$ and for every one-way real-time cellular automaton
operating over
the alphabet of base-$k$ digits $\big\{\lfloor\frac{k+9}{4}\rfloor, \ldots,
\lfloor\frac{k+1}{2}\rfloor\big\}$,
the language of all strings $a^n$
with the base-$k$ notation of the form $\D1w\D1$,
where $w$ is accepted by the automaton,
is generated by an unambiguous conjunctive grammar.
Another encoding is used to simulate a cellular automaton
in a unary language containing almost all strings.
These constructions are used to show
that for every fixed unambiguous conjunctive language $L_0$,
testing whether a given unambiguous conjunctive grammar generates $L_0$ is
undecidable.},

equation by a `fresh' letter,
which can be seen as a bottom-up building of an SLP (Straight-Line Programme)
for the solution of the word equation, i.e. a compression.
Using this technique we give a simple proof that satisfiability of word
equations is in PSPACE. Furthermore we sketch the applications for some
problems regarding the SLP compressed strings.},

ABSTRACT = {In this paper we consider word equations with one variable (and arbitrary many
appearances of it). A recent technique of recompression, which is applicable to
general word equations,
is shown to be suitable also in this case. While in general case it is
non-deterministic, it determinises in case of one variable and the obtained
running time is $O(n)$ (in RAM model).},

ABSTRACT = {We present an application of a local recompression technique,
previously developed by the author in the context of compressed membership
problems
and compressed pattern matching, to word equations.
The technique is based on local modification of variables (replacing $X$ by
$aX$ or $Xa$)
and replacement of pairs of letters appearing in the equation by a `fresh'
letter,
which can be seen as a bottom-up compression of the solution
of the given word equation, to be more specific, building an SLP (Straight-Line
Programme)
for the solution of the word equation.
Using this technique we give new self-contained
proofs of many known results for word equations:
the presented nondeterministic algorithm
runs in $O(n \log n)$ space and in time polynomial in $\log N$ and $n$,
where $N$ is the size of the length-minimal solution of the word equation.
It can be easily generalised
to a generator of all solutions of the word equation.
A further analysis of the algorithm yields a doubly exponential
upper bound on the size of the length-minimal solution.
The presented algorithm does not use
exponential bound on the exponent of periodicity.
Conversely, the analysis of the algorithm yields
a new proof of the exponential bound on exponent of periodicity.
For $O(1)$ variables with arbitrary many appearances
it works in linear space.},

ABSTRACT = {Hyper-minimization is a recent automaton compression technique that can reduce
the size of an automaton beyond the limits imposed by classical minimization.
The additional compression power is enabled by allowing a finite difference in
the represented language. The necessary theory for hyper-minimization is
developed for (bottom-up) deterministic tree automata. The hyper-minimization
problem for deterministic tree automata is reduced to the hyper-minimization
problem for deterministic finite-state string automata, for which fast
algorithms exist. The fastest algorithm obtained in this way runs in time $O(m
\log n)$, where $m$ is the size of the transition table and $n$ is the number
of states of the input tree automaton.},

ABSTRACT = {In this thesis an algorithm for sampling rooted 3-connected planar graphs
(c-nets) in deterministic polynomial time is presented. The algorithm is based
on a decomposition strategy for c-nets, which is formulated as a system of
bijections between classes of c-nets parameterized by the number of vertices,
faces, and edges on the outer face. This system is then used in three ways:
First, as system of recursive equations to derive the sizes of above classes by
using an algorithm based on dynamic programming. Second, as system of equations
of generating functions to derive an algebraic generating function and a single
parameter recursion formula for c-nets. Third, as composition scheme to sample
c-nets uniformly at random with the recursive method of sampling. The thesis is
based on the paper \emph{A Direct Decomposition of 3-connected Planar Graphs}
by Manuel Bodirsky, Clemens Gr{\"o}pl, Mihyun Kang and the
author~\cite{3connplanar} and extends it by the parameter for the number of
edges and a full proof of the decomposition.},

ABSTRACT = {In this paper we consider the class of boolean formulas in Conjunctive Normal
Form~(CNF) where for each variable all but at most~$d$ occurrences are either
positive or negative. This class is a generalization of the class of~CNF
formulas with at most~$d$ occurrences (positive and negative) of each variable
which was studied in~[Wahlstr{\"o}m,~2005].
Applying complement search~[Purdom,~1984], we show that for every~$d$ there
exists a constant~$\gamma_d<2-\frac{1}{2d+1}$ such that satisfiability of a~CNF
formula on~$n$ variables can be checked in runtime~$\Oh(\gamma_d^n)$ if all but
at most~$d$ occurrences of each variable are either positive or negative. We
thoroughly analyze the proposed branching strategy and determine the asymptotic
growth constant~$\gamma_d$ more precisely. Finally, we show that the
trivial~$\Oh(2^n)$ barrier of satisfiability checking can be broken even for a
more general class of formulas, namely formulas where the positive or negative
literals of every variable have what we will call a~\emph{$d$--covering}.
To the best of our knowledge, for the considered classes of formulas there are
no previous non-tr
