We consider the problem of identifying underlying community-like structures in graphs. Towards this end we study the Stochastic Block Model (SBM) on k-clusters: a random model on n = km vertices, partitioned in k equal sized clusters, with edges sampled independently across clusters with probability q and within clusters with probability p, p > q. The goal(More)
Stochastic optimization and, in particular, first-order stochastic methods are a cornerstone of modern machine learning due to their extremely efficient per-iteration computational cost. Second-order methods, while able to provide faster per-iteration convergence, have been much less explored due to the high cost of computing the second-order information.(More)
In this paper, we investigate the validity of the Unique Games Conjecture when the constraint graph is the boolean hypercube. We construct an almost optimal integrality gap instance on the Hypercube for the Goemans-Williamson semidefinite program (SDP) for Max-2-LIN(Z 2). We conjecture that adding triangle inequalities to the SDP provides a polynomial time(More)
— The Indian Retail Market is witnessing a revolution. The growth of internet has enabled the new retail format of the virtual retailer to emerge and forced the existing retailers to consider e-tailing model of retailing as well. A large number of consumers frequently use the Internet for shopping purposes but its' not clear what drives them to shop online.(More)
