In this paper we consider a quantum computational variant of nondeterminism based on the notion of a quantum proof, which is a quantum state that plays a role similar to a certifi...

We consider the problem of routing traffic to optimize the performance of a congested network. We are given a network, a rate of traffic between each pair of nodes, and a latency ...

We formalize a notion of topological simplification within the framework of a filtration, which is the history of a growing complex. We classify a topological change that happens ...

We motivate and develop a natural bicriteria measure for assessing the quality of a clustering that avoids the drawbacks of existing measures. A simple recursive heuristic is shown...

Randomness extractors convert weak sources of randomness into an almost uniform distribution; the conversion uses a small amount of pure randomness. In algorithmic applications, t...

Extractors (deﬁned by Nisan and Zuckerman) are procedures that use a small number of truly random bits (called the seed) to extract many (almost) truly random bits from arbitrar...
