A (Slightly) Improved Approximation Algorithm for the Metric Traveling Salesperson Problem (Invited Talk)

Authors: Anna R. Karlin

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 261, 50th International Colloquium on Automata, Languages, and Programming (ICALP 2023)


Abstract
We describe recent joint work with Nathan Klein and Shayan Oveis Gharan showing that for any metric TSP instance, the max entropy algorithm studied by [Anna R. Karlin et al., 2021] returns a solution of expected cost at most 3/2-ε times the cost of the optimal solution to the subtour elimination LP and hence is a 3/2-ε approximation for the metric TSP problem. The research discussed comes from [Anna R. Karlin et al., 2021], [Anna R. Karlin et al., 2022] and [Anna R. Karlin et al., 2022].

Matroid Partition Property and the Secretary Problem

Authors: Dorna Abdolazimi, Anna R. Karlin, Nathan Klein, and Shayan Oveis Gharan

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 251, 14th Innovations in Theoretical Computer Science Conference (ITCS 2023)


Abstract
A matroid M on a set E of elements has the α-partition property, for some α > 0, if it is possible to (randomly) construct a partition matroid 𝒫 on (a subset of) elements of M such that every independent set of 𝒫 is independent in M and for any weight function w:E → ℝ_{≥0}, the expected value of the optimum of the matroid secretary problem on 𝒫 is at least an α-fraction of the optimum on M. We show that the complete binary matroid, B_d on 𝔽₂^d does not satisfy the α-partition property for any constant α > 0 (independent of d). Furthermore, we refute a recent conjecture of [Kristóf Bérczi et al., 2021] by showing the same matroid is 2^d/d-colorable but cannot be reduced to an α 2^d/d-colorable partition matroid for any α that is sublinear in d.

Carpooling in Social Networks

Authors: Amos Fiat, Anna R. Karlin, Elias Koutsoupias, Claire Mathieu, and Rotem Zach

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 55, 43rd International Colloquium on Automata, Languages, and Programming (ICALP 2016)


Abstract
We consider the online carpool fairness problem of [Fagin and Williams, 1983] in which an online algorithm is presented with a sequence of pairs drawn from a group of n potential drivers. The online algorithm must select one driver from each pair, with the objective of partitioning the driving burden as fairly as possible for all drivers. The unfairness of an online algorithm is a measure of the worst-case deviation between the number of times a person has driven and the number of times they would have driven if life was completely fair. We introduce a version of the problem in which drivers only carpool with their neighbors in a given social network graph; this is a generalization of the original problem, which corresponds to the social network of the complete graph. We show that for graphs of degree d, the unfairness of deterministic algorithms against adversarial sequences is exactly d/2. For random sequences of edges from planar graph social networks we give a [deterministic] algorithm with logarithmic unfairness (holds more generally for any bounded-genus graph). This does not follow from previous random sequence results in the original model, as we show that restricting the random sequences to sparse social network graphs may increase the unfairness. A very natural class of randomized online algorithms are so-called static algorithms that preserve the same state distribution over time. Surprisingly, we show that any such algorithm has unfairness ~Theta(sqrt(d)) against oblivious adversaries. This shows that the local random greedy algorithm of [Ajtai et al, 1996] is close to optimal amongst the class of static algorithms. A natural (non-static) algorithm is global random greedy (which acts greedily and breaks ties at random). We improve the lower bound on the competitive ratio from Omega(log^{1/3}(d)) to Omega(log(d)). We also show that the competitive ratio of global random greedy against adaptive adversaries is Omega(d).
