Dynamic Maximal Matching in Clique Networks

Authors: Minming Li, Peter Robinson, and Xianbin Zhu

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 287, 15th Innovations in Theoretical Computer Science Conference (ITCS 2024)


Abstract
We consider the problem of computing a maximal matching with a distributed algorithm in the presence of batch-dynamic changes to the graph topology. We assume that a graph of n nodes is vertex-partitioned among k players that communicate via message passing. Our goal is to provide an efficient algorithm that quickly updates the matching even if an adversary determines batches of 𝓁 edge insertions or deletions. We first show a lower bound of Ω((𝓁 log k)/(k²log n)) rounds for recomputing a matching assuming an oblivious adversary who is unaware of the initial (random) vertex partition as well as the current state of the players, and a stronger lower bound of Ω(𝓁/(klog n)) rounds against an adaptive adversary, who may choose any balanced (but not necessarily random) vertex partition initially and who knows the current state of the players. We also present a randomized algorithm that has an initialization time of O(n/(k log n)) rounds, while achieving an update time that that is independent of n: In more detail, the update time is O(⌈𝓁/k⌉ log k) against an oblivious adversary, who must fix all updates in advance. If we consider the stronger adaptive adversary, the update time becomes O (⌈𝓁/√k⌉ log k) rounds.

Scheduling with a Limited Testing Budget: Tight Results for the Offline and Oblivious Settings

Authors: Christoph Damerius, Peter Kling, Minming Li, Chenyang Xu, and Ruilong Zhang

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 274, 31st Annual European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA 2023)


Abstract
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.

An FPTAS of Minimizing Total Weighted Completion Time on Single Machine with Position Constraint

Authors: Gruia Calinescu, Florian Jaehn, Minming Li, and Kai Wang

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 92, 28th International Symposium on Algorithms and Computation (ISAAC 2017)


Abstract
In this paper we study the classical scheduling problem of minimizing the total weighted completion time on a single machine with the constraint that one specific job must be scheduled at a specified position. We give dynamic programs with pseudo-polynomial running time, and a fully polynomial-time approximation scheme (FPTAS).
