Embeddings of Topological Graphs: Lossy Invariants, Linearization, and 2-Sums
We study the properties of embeddings, multicommodity flows, and sparse cuts in minor-closed families of graphs which are also closed under 2-sums; this includes planar graphs, g...

On the geometry of graphs with a forbidden minor
We study the topological simplification of graphs via random embeddings, leading ultimately to a reduction of the Gupta-Newman-Rabinovich-Sinclair (GNRS) L1 embedding conjecture t...

Local Algorithms for Approximate Inference in Minor-Excluded Graphs
We present a new local approximation algorithm for computing MAP and logpartition function for arbitrary exponential family distribution represented by a finite-valued pair-wise ...

Bounded Geometries, Fractals, and Low-Distortion Embeddings
The doubling constant of a metric space (X, d) is the smallest value λ such that every ball in X can be covered by λ balls of half the radius. The doubling dimension of X is the...
