Abstract We prove that O(e √ n log n ) states are sufficient to simulate an n -state 1nfa recognizing a unary language by a 1dfa. The lower bound is the same. Similar tight bounds are shown for the… Expand

An O(nlog2n) upper bound on the time for deterministic distributed broadcasting in multi-hop radio networks with unknown topology is established and an O( n3/2log 2n) algorithm for gossiping in the same network model is developed.Expand

A fast algorithm for oflline computing of an optimal schedule is given, and it is shown that finding an optimal offline schedule is at least as hard as the assignment problem.Expand

A linear-time algorithm is presented which, given an n-vertex 3-connected plane G (with n ≥ 3), finds such a straight-line convex embedding of G into a (n - 2) × (n- 2) grid.Expand

It is shown how the concept of work functions, used previously mostly for the analysis of deterministic algorithms, can be applied, in a systematic fashion, to the randomized case and a new, Hk-competitive algorithm for paging is provided.Expand

This paper uses competitive analysis to study the relative performance of the two best known algorithms for paging, LRU and FIFO, and conjectures that the competitive ratio of LRU on each access graph is less than or equal to the competitive ratios of FIFF.Expand

An O(n log/sup 2/n) upper bound on the time for deterministic distributed broadcasting in multi-hop radio networks with unknown topology is established and an O( n/sup 3/2/log/Sup 2/ n) algorithm for gossiping in the same network model is developed.Expand

Two efficient heuristics for minimizing the number of oligonucleotide probes needed for analyzing populations of ribosomal RNA gene (rDNA) clones by hybridization experiments on DNA microarrays are proposed, based on well-known optimization techniques simulated annealing and Lagrangian relaxation.Expand
