Abstract. Online scheduling of parallel jobs is a problem where jobs with unit processing time and integer release times and deadlines are scheduled on a set of processors. Every job requests certain number of processors. In our setting processors are organized as a hypercube and jobs are scheduled on subhypercubes of the hypercube. The objective is to(More)
We study the online frequency allocation problem for wireless linear (highway) cellular networks, where the geographical coverage area is divided into cells aligned in a line. Calls arrive over time and are served by assigning frequencies to them, and no two calls emanating from the same cell or neighboring cells are assigned the same frequency. The(More)
We study the problem of on-line scheduling of parallel jobs on two machines. The jobs are parallel in the sense that each of them specifies the number of processors, in this case 1 or 2, required for simultaneous processing. The jobs are presented one by one. Upon receiving a job, we must assign the job to a time slot in the schedule before the next job is(More)
We study the problem of finding a longest common increasing subsequence (LCIS) of multiple sequences of numbers. The LCIS problem is a fundamental issue in various application areas, including the whole genome alignment. In this paper we give an efficient algorithm to find the LCIS of two sequences in O(min(r log `, n`+r) log log n+Sort(n)) time where n is(More)
We study an on-line parallel job scheduling problem, where jobs arrive one by one. A parallel job may require a number of machines for its processing at the same time. Upon arrival of a job, its processing time and the number of requested machines become known, and it must be scheduled immediately without any knowledge of future jobs. We present a(More)
