Discrepancy and the Power of Bottom Fan-in in Depth-three Circuits
We develop a new technique of proving lower bounds for the randomized communication complexity of boolean functions in the multiparty `Number on the Forehead' model. Our meth...

Minimizing Average Flow-time : Upper and Lower Bounds
We consider the problem of minimizing average flow time on multiple machines when each job can be assigned only to a specified subset of the machines. This is a special case of sc...

Inferring Local Homology from Sampled Stratified Spaces
We study the reconstruction of a stratified space from a possibly noisy point sample. Specifically, we use the vineyard of the distance function restricted to a 1-parameter family...

Space-Efficient Identity Based Encryption Without Pairings
Identity Based Encryption (IBE) systems are often constructed using bilinear maps (a.k.a. pairings) on elliptic curves. One exception is an elegant system due to Cocks which build...

Buy-at-Bulk Network Design with Protection
We consider approximation algorithms for buy-at-bulk network design, with the additional constraint that demand pairs be protected against edge or node failures in the network. In...

Finding Disjoint Paths in Expanders Deterministically and Online
We describe a deterministic, polynomial time algorithm for finding edge-disjoint paths connecting given pairs of vertices in an expander. Specifically, the input of the algorith...

Maximizing Non-Monotone Submodular Functions
Submodular maximization generalizes many important problems including Max Cut in directed/undirected graphs and hypergraphs, certain constraint satisfaction problems and maximum f...
