Graphs in the real-world are often temporal and can be represented as a "stream" of edges. Estimating the number of triangles in a graph observed as a stream of edges is a fundamental problem in data mining. Our goal is to design a single pass space-efficient streaming algorithm for estimating triangle counts. While there are numerous algorithms for this problem, they all (implicitly or explicitly) assume that the stream does not contain duplicate edges. However, real graph streams are rife… CONTINUE READING
