Belief Propagation and LP Relaxation for Weighted Matching in General Graphs
Loopy belief propagation has been employed in a wide variety of applications with great empirical success, but it comes with few theoretical guarantees. In this paper we analyze t...

Fast Approximation Algorithms for Cut-based Problems in Undirected Graphs
We present a general method of designing fast approximation algorithms for cut-based minimization problems in undirected graphs. In particular, we develop a technique that given a...

ROMAN DOMINATION: a parameterized perspective
Abstract. We analyze Roman domination from a parameterized perspective. More specifically, we prove that this problem is W[2]-complete for general graphs. However, parameterized al...

Clustering with Qualitative Information
We consider the problem of clustering a collection of elements based on pairwise judgments of similarity and dissimilarity. Bansal, Blum and Chawla (in: Proceedings of 43rd FOCS, ...

Low-dimensional embedding with extra information
A frequently arising problem in computational geometry is when a physical structure, such as an ad-hoc wireless sensor network or a protein backbone, can measure local information...

Log-space Algorithms for Paths and Matchings in k-trees
Reachability and shortest path problems are NL-complete for general graphs. They are known to be in L for graphs of tree-width 2 [14]. However, for graphs of treewidth larger than ...

The k-in-a-path Problem for Claw-free Graphs
Testing whether there is an induced path in a graph spanning k given vertices is already NP-complete in general graphs when k = 3. We show how to solve this problem in polynomial t...

Improved Approximation Algorithms for the Minimum Latency Problem via Prize-Collecting Strolls
The minimum latency problem (MLP) is a well-studied variant of the traveling salesman problem (TSP). In the MLP, the server's goal is to minimize the average latency that the...
