In this paper, we consider the problem of approximating the densest subgraph in the dynamic graph stream model. In this model of computation, the input graph is defined by an arbitrary sequence of edge insertions and deletions and the goal is to analyze properties of the resulting graph given memory that is sub-linear in the size of the stream. We present a(More)
We present space-efficient data stream algorithms for approximating the number of triangles in a graph up to a factor 1+ε. While it can be shown that determining whether a graph is triangle-free is not possible in sub-linear space, a large body of work has focused on minimizing the space required in terms of the number of triangles T (or a lower bound(More)
In this paper, we revisit the classic problem of run generation. Run generation is the first phase of external-memory sorting, where the objective is to scan through the data, reorder elements using a small buffer of size M , and output runs (contiguously sorted chunks of elements) that are as long as possible. We develop algorithms for minimizing the total(More)
We study the classic NP-Hard problem of finding the maximum k-set coverage in the data stream model: given a set system of m sets that are subsets of a universe {1, · · · , n}, find the k sets that cover the most number of distinct elements. The problem can be approximated up to a factor 1 − 1/e in polynomial time. In the streaming-set model, the sets and(More)
