We study the problem of estimating the number of edges in an n-vertex graph, accessed via the Bipartite Independent Set query model introduced by Beame et al. (TALG '20). In this model, each query returns a Boolean, indicating the existence of at least one edge between two specified sets of nodes. We present a non-adaptive algorithm that returns a (1± ε) relative error approximation to the number of edges, with query complexity Õ(ε^{-5}log⁵ n), where Õ(⋅) hides poly(log log n) dependencies. This is the first non-adaptive algorithm in this setting achieving poly(1/ε,log n) query complexity. Prior work requires Ω(log² n) rounds of adaptivity. We avoid this by taking a fundamentally different approach, inspired by work on single-pass streaming algorithms. Moreover, for constant ε, our query complexity significantly improves on the best known adaptive algorithm due to Bhattacharya et al. (STACS '22), which requires O(ε^{-2} log^{11} n) queries. Building on our edge estimation result, we give the first {non-adaptive} algorithm for outputting a nearly uniformly sampled edge with query complexity Õ(ε^{-6} log⁶ n), improving on the works of Dell et al. (SODA '20) and Bhattacharya et al. (STACS '22), which require Ω(log³ n) rounds of adaptivity. Finally, as a consequence of our edge sampling algorithm, we obtain a Õ(n log^8 n) query algorithm for connectivity, using two rounds of adaptivity. This improves on a three-round algorithm of Assadi et al. (ESA '21) and is tight; there is no non-adaptive algorithm for connectivity making o(n²) queries.

Given an n-point metric space ({𝒳},d) where each point belongs to one of m = O(1) different categories or groups and a set of integers k₁, …, k_m, the fair Max-Min diversification problem is to select k_i points belonging to category i ∈ [m], such that the minimum pairwise distance between selected points is maximized. The problem was introduced by Moumoulidou et al. [ICDT 2021] and is motivated by the need to down-sample large data sets in various applications so that the derived sample achieves a balance over diversity, i.e., the minimum distance between a pair of selected points, and fairness, i.e., ensuring enough points of each category are included. We prove the following results:
1) We first consider general metric spaces. We present a randomized polynomial time algorithm that returns a factor 2-approximation to the diversity but only satisfies the fairness constraints in expectation. Building upon this result, we present a 6-approximation that is guaranteed to satisfy the fairness constraints up to a factor 1-ε for any constant ε. We also present a linear time algorithm returning an m+1 approximation with exact fairness. The best previous result was a 3m-1 approximation.
2) We then focus on Euclidean metrics. We first show that the problem can be solved exactly in one dimension. {For constant dimensions, categories and any constant ε > 0, we present a 1+ε approximation algorithm that runs in O(nk) + 2^{O(k)} time where k = k₁+…+k_m.} We can improve the running time to O(nk)+poly(k) at the expense of only picking (1-ε) k_i points from category i ∈ [m].
Finally, we present algorithms suitable to processing massive data sets including single-pass data stream algorithms and composable coresets for the distributed processing.
