Massive networks arising in numerous application areas poses significant challenges for network analysts as these networks grow to billions of nodes and are prohibitively large to fit in the main memory. Finding the number of triangles in a network is an important problem in the analysis of complex networks. Several interesting graph mining applications(More)
We present a uniform approach to design efficient distributed approximation algorithms for various network optimization problems. Our approach is randomized and based on a probabilistic tree embedding due to Fakcharoenphol, Rao, and Talwar (FRT embedding). We show how to efficiently compute an (implicit) FRT embedding in a decentralized manner and how to(More)
The Peano Count Tree (P-tree) is a quadrant-based lossless tree representation of the original spatial data. The idea of P-tree is to recursively divide the entire spatial data, such as Remotely Sensed Imagery data, into quadrants and record the count of 1-bits for each quadrant, thus forming a quadrant count tree. Using P-tree structure, all the count(More)
While there are distributed algorithms for the MST problem, these algorithms require relatively large number of messages and time; this makes these algorithms impractical for resource-constrained networks such as ad hoc wireless sensor networks. In such networks, a sensor has very limited power, and any algorithm needs to be simple, local, and energy(More)
We present a distributed algorithm that constructs an O(log n)-approximate minimum spanning tree (MST) in any arbitrary network. This algorithm runs in time Õ(D(G) + L(G, w)) where L(G, w) is a parameter called the local shortest path diameter and D(G) is the (unweighted) diameter of the graph. Our algorithm is existentially optimal (up to polylogarithmic(More)
A fundamental problem in wireless networks is the minimum spanning tree (MST) problem: given a set V of wireless nodes, compute a spanning tree T , so that the total cost of T is minimized. In recent years, there has been a lot of interest in the physical interference model based on SINR constraints. Distributed algorithms are especially challenging in the(More)
We describe "first principles" based methods for developing synthetic urban and national scale social contact networks. Unlike simple random graph techniques, these methods use real world data sources and combine them with behavioral and social theories to synthesize networks. We develop a synthetic population for the United States modeling every individual(More)
Relational sub graph analysis, e.g. finding labeled sub graphs in a network, which are isomorphic to a template, is a key problem in many graph related applications. It is computationally challenging for large networks and complex templates. In this paper, we develop SAHAD, an algorithm for relational sub graph analysis using Hadoop, in which the sub graph(More)
