In the arbitrary pattern formation problem, n autonomous, mobile robots must form an arbitrary pattern P ⊆ R². The (deterministic) robots are typically assumed to be indistinguishable, disoriented, and unable to communicate. An important distinction is whether robots have memory and/or a limited viewing range. Previous work managed to form P under a natural symmetry condition if robots have no memory but an unlimited viewing range [Masafumi Yamashita and Ichiro Suzuki, 2010] or if robots have a limited viewing range but memory [Yukiko Yamauchi and Masafumi Yamashita, 2013]. In the latter case, P is only formed in a shrunk version that has constant diameter.
Without memory and with limited viewing range, forming arbitrary patterns remains an open problem. We provide a partial solution by showing that P can be formed under the same symmetry condition if the robots' initial diameter is ≤ 1. Our protocol partitions P into rotation-symmetric components and exploits the initial mutual visibility to form one cluster per component. Using a careful placement of the clusters and their robots, we show that a cluster can move in a coordinated way through its component while "drawing" P by dropping one robot per pattern coordinate.

Scheduling with testing falls under the umbrella of the research on optimization with explorable uncertainty. In this model, each job has an upper limit on its processing time that can be decreased to a lower limit (possibly unknown) by some preliminary action (testing). Recently, [Christoph Dürr et al., 2020] has studied a setting where testing a job takes a unit time, and the goal is to minimize total completion time or makespan on a single machine. In this paper, we extend their problem to the budget setting in which each test consumes a job-specific cost, and we require that the total testing cost cannot exceed a given budget. We consider the offline variant (the lower processing time is known) and the oblivious variant (the lower processing time is unknown) and aim to minimize the total completion time or makespan on a single machine.
For the total completion time objective, we show NP-hardness and derive a PTAS for the offline variant based on a novel LP rounding scheme. We give a (4+ε)-competitive algorithm for the oblivious variant based on a framework inspired by the worst-case lower-bound instance. For the makespan objective, we give an FPTAS for the offline variant and a (2+ε)-competitive algorithm for the oblivious variant. Our algorithms for the oblivious variants under both objectives run in time 𝒪(poly(n/ε)). Lastly, we show that our results are essentially optimal by providing matching lower bounds.

We consider a swarm of n robots in a d-dimensional Euclidean space. The robots are oblivious (no persistent memory), disoriented (no common coordinate system/compass), and have limited visibility (observe other robots up to a constant distance). The basic formation task Gathering requires that all robots reach the same, not predefined position. In the related NearGathering task, they must reach distinct positions in close proximity such that every robot sees the entire swarm. In the considered setting, Gathering can be solved in 𝒪(n + Δ²) synchronous rounds both in two and three dimensions, where Δ denotes the initial maximal distance of two robots [Hideki Ando et al., 1999; Michael Braun et al., 2020; Bastian Degener et al., 2011].
In this work, we formalize a key property of efficient Gathering protocols and use it to define λ-contracting protocols. Any such protocol gathers n robots in the d-dimensional space in 𝒪(Δ²) synchronous rounds, for d ≥ 2. For d = 1, any λ-contracting protocol gathers in optimal time 𝒪(Δ). Moreover, we prove a corresponding lower bound stating that any protocol in which robots move to target points inside the local convex hulls of their neighborhoods - λ-contracting protocols have this property - requires Ω(Δ²) rounds to gather all robots (d > 1). Among others, we prove that the d-dimensional generalization of the GTC-protocol [Hideki Ando et al., 1999] is λ-contracting. Remarkably, our improved and generalized runtime bound is independent of n and d.
We also introduce an approach to make any λ-contracting protocol collision-free (robots never occupy the same position) to solve NearGathering. The resulting protocols maintain the runtime of Θ (Δ²) and work even in the semi-synchronous model. This yields the first NearGathering protocols for disoriented robots and the first proven runtime bound. In particular, combined with results from [Paola Flocchini et al., 2017] for robots with global visibility, we obtain the first protocol to solve Uniform Circle Formation (arrange the robots on the vertices of a regular n-gon) for oblivious, disoriented robots with limited visibility.

Consider a set P of points in the unit square U = [1,0), one of them being the origin. For each point p ∈ P you may draw an axis-aligned rectangle in U with its lower-left corner being p. What is the maximum area such rectangles can cover without overlapping each other?
Freedman posed this problem in 1969, asking whether one can always cover at least 50% of U. Over 40 years later, Dumitrescu and Tóth [Adrian Dumitrescu and Csaba D. Tóth, 2015] achieved the first constant coverage of 9.1%; since then, no significant progress was made. While 9.1% might seem low, the authors could not find any instance where their algorithm covers less than 50%, nourishing the hope to eventually prove a 50% bound. While we indeed significantly raise the algorithm’s coverage to 39%, we extinguish the hope of reaching 50% by giving points for which its coverage stays below 43.3%.
Our analysis studies the algorithm’s average and worst-case density of so-called tiles, which represent the staircase polygons in which a point can freely choose its maximum-area rectangle. Our approach is comparatively general and may potentially help in analyzing related algorithms.

In the Anchored Rectangle Packing (ARP) problem, we are given a set of points P in the unit square [0,1]^2 and seek a maximum-area set of axis-aligned interior-disjoint rectangles S, each of which is anchored at a point p in P. In the most prominent variant - Lower-Left-Anchored Rectangle Packing (LLARP) - rectangles are anchored in their lower-left corner. Freedman [W. T. Tutte (Ed.), 1969] conjectured in 1969 that, if (0,0) in P, then there is a LLARP that covers an area of at least 0.5. Somewhat surprisingly, this conjecture remains open to this day, with the best known result covering an area of 0.091 [Dumitrescu and Tóth, 2015]. Maybe even more surprisingly, it is not known whether LLARP - or any ARP-problem with only one anchor - is NP-hard.
In this work, we first study the Center-Anchored Rectangle Packing (CARP) problem, where rectangles are anchored in their center. We prove NP-hardness and provide a PTAS. In fact, our PTAS applies to any ARP problem where the anchor lies in the interior of the rectangles. Afterwards, we turn to the LLARP problem and investigate two different resource-augmentation settings: In the first we allow an epsilon-perturbation of the input P, whereas in the second we permit an epsilon-overlap between rectangles. For the former setting, we give an algorithm that covers at least as much area as an optimal solution of the original problem. For the latter, we give an (1 - epsilon)-approximation.

A population protocol is a sequence of pairwise interactions of n agents. During one interaction, two randomly selected agents update their states by applying a deterministic transition function. The goal is to stabilize the system at a desired output property. The main performance objectives in designing such protocols are small number of states per agent and fast stabilization time.
We present a fast population protocol for the exact-majority problem, which uses Theta(log n) states (per agent) and stabilizes in O(log^{5/3} n) parallel time (i.e., in O(n log^{5/3} n) interactions) in expectation and with high probability. Alistarh et al. [SODA 2018] showed that exact-majority protocols which stabilize in expected O(n^{1-Omega(1)}) parallel time and have the properties of monotonicity and output dominance require Omega(log n) states. Note that the properties mentioned above are satisfied by all known population protocols for exact majority, including ours. They also showed an O(log^2 n)-time exact-majority protocol with O(log n) states, which, prior to our work, was the fastest exact-majority protocol with polylogarithmic number of states. The standard design framework for majority protocols is based on O(log n) phases and requires that all agents are well synchronized within each phase, leading naturally to upper bounds of the order of log^2 n because of Theta(log n) synchronization time per phase. We show how this framework can be tightened with weak synchronization to break the O(log^2 n) upper bound of previous protocols.

We provide a simple and efficient population protocol for leader election that uses O(log n) states and elects exactly one leader in O(n (log n)^2) interactions with high probability and in expectation. Our analysis is simple and based on fundamental stochastic arguments. Our protocol combines the tournament based leader elimination by Alistarh and Gelashvili, ICALP'15, with the synthetic coin introduced by Alistarh et al., SODA'17.

Plurality consensus considers a network of n nodes, each having one of k opinions. Nodes execute a (randomized) distributed protocol with the goal that all nodes adopt the plurality (the opinion initially supported by the most nodes). Communication is realized via the Gossip (or random phone call) model. A major open question has been whether there is a protocol for the complete graph that converges (w.h.p.) in polylogarithmic time and uses only polylogarithmic memory per node (local memory). We answer this question affirmatively.
We propose two protocols that need only mild assumptions on the bias in favor of the plurality. As an example of our results, consider the complete graph and an arbitrarily small constant multiplicative bias in favor of the plurality. Our first protocol achieves plurality consensus in O(log(k)*log(log(n))) rounds using log(k) + Theta(log(log(k))) bits of local memory. Our second protocol achieves plurality consensus in O(log(n)*log(log(n))) rounds using only log(k) + 4 bits of local memory. This disproves a conjecture by Becchetti et al. (SODA'15) implying that any protocol with local memory log(k)+O(1) has worst-case runtime Omega(k). We provide similar bounds for much weaker bias assumptions. At the heart of our protocols lies an undecided state, an idea introduced by Angluin et al. (Distributed Computing'08).

We consider plurality consensus in networks of n nodes. Initially, each node has one of k opinions. The nodes execute a (randomized) distributed protocol to agree on the plurality opinion (the opinion initially supported by the most nodes). In certain types of networks the nodes can be quite cheap and simple, and hence one seeks protocols that are not only time efficient but also simple and space efficient. Typically, protocols depend heavily on the employed communication mechanism, which ranges from sequential (only one pair of nodes communicates at any time) to fully parallel (all nodes communicate with all their neighbors at once) and everything in-between.
We propose a framework to design protocols for a multitude of communication mechanisms. We introduce protocols that solve the plurality consensus problem and are, with probability 1-o(1), both time and space efficient. Our protocols are based on an interesting relationship between plurality consensus and distributed load balancing. This relationship allows us to design protocols that generalize the state of the art for a large range of problem parameters.
