Given a set of numbers, the k-SUM problem asks for a subset of k numbers that sums to zero. When the numbers are integers, the time and space complexity of k-SUM is generally studied in the word-RAM model; when the numbers are reals, the complexity is studied in the real-RAM model, and space is measured by the number of reals held in memory at any point. We… (More)

In this paper we show how linear network coding can reduce the number of queries needed to retrieve one specific message among k distinct ones replicated across a large number of randomly accessed nodes storing one message each. Without network coding, this would require k queries on average. After proving that no scheme can perform better than a… (More)

Memory efficiency and locality have substantial impact on the performance of programs, particularly when operating on large data sets. Thus, memory- or I/O-efficient algorithms have received significant attention both in theory and practice. The widespread deployment of multicore machines, however, brings new challenges. Specifically, since the memory (RAM)… (More)

The performance and behavior of caches is becoming increasingly important to the overall performance of systems. As a result, there has been extensive study of caching in theoretical computer science. The traditionally studied model was the external-memory model [AV88]. In this model cache misses cost O(1) and operations on the CPU are free [AV88]. In 1999… (More)

Given a network in which some pairs of nodes can communicate freely, and some subsets of the nodes could be faulty and colluding to disrupt communication, when can messages reliably be sent from one given node to another? We give a new characterization of when the agreement problem can be solved and provide an agreement algorithm which can reach agreement… (More)
