Succinct List Indexing in Optimal Time

Authors: William L. Holland

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 248, 33rd International Symposium on Algorithms and Computation (ISAAC 2022)


Abstract
An indexed list supports (efficient) access to both the offsets and the items of an arbitrarily ordered set under the effect of insertions and deletions. Existing solutions are engaged in a space-time trade-off. On the one hand, time efficient solutions are composed as a package of data structures: a linked-list, a hash table and a tree-type structure to support indexing. This arrangement observes a memory commitment that is outside the information theoretic lower bound (for ordered sets) by a factor of 12. On the other hand, the memory lower bound can be satisfied, up to an additive lower order term, trivially with an array. However, operations incur time costs proportional to the length of the array. We revisit the list indexing problem by attempting to balance the competing demands of space and time efficiency. We prepare the first succinct indexed list that supports efficient query and update operations. To implement an ordered set of size n, drawn from the universe {1, …, m}, the solution occupies n(log m + o(log n)) bits (with high probability) and admits all operations optimally in 𝒪(log n/log log n) time.

Recency Queries with Succinct Representation

Authors: William L. Holland, Anthony Wirth, and Justin Zobel

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 181, 31st International Symposium on Algorithms and Computation (ISAAC 2020)


Abstract
In the context of the sliding-window set membership problem, and caching policies that require knowledge of item recency, we formalize the problem of Recency on a stream. Informally, the query asks, "when was the last time I saw item x?" Existing structures, such as hash tables, can support a recency query by augmenting item occurrences with timestamps. To support recency queries on a window of W items, this might require Θ(W log W) bits. We propose a succinct data structure for Recency. By combining sliding-window dictionaries in a hierarchical structure, and careful design of the underlying hash tables, we achieve a data structure that returns a 1+ε approximation to the recency of every item in O(log(ε W)) time, in only (1+o(1))(1+ε)(ℬ+Wlog(ε^(-1))) bits. Here, ℬ is the information-theoretic lower bound on the number of bits for a set of size W, in a universe of cardinality N.
