A General Coreset-Based Approach to Diversity Maximization under Matroid Constraints
The first coreset-based algorithms for diversity maximization under matroid constraints for various diversity functions are devise, together with efficient sequential, MapReduce, and Streaming implementations, and are capable of dealing with the large input instances typical of the big data scenario.
Linear Relaxations for Finding Diverse Elements in Metric Spaces

It is proved that by optimizing the original objective function (g-c) and the size simultaneously, the GSEMO fails to achieve a good polynomial-time approximation guarantee, but it is also proven that by optimized a distorted objective function and thesize simultaneous, theGSEMO can still achieve the best-known polynometric- time approximation guarantee.

An interactive multiobjective evolutionary algorithm (MOEA) called iDMOEA-εC is proposed, which utilizes the DM’s preferences to compress the objective space directly and progressively for identifying the DM's preferred region.
Diversity maximization under matroid constraints
A combinatorial proof technique for maximizing diversity under matroid constraints uses the existence of a family of Latin squares which may also be of independent interest, and the first constant-factor approximation algorithm for this problem, using a new technique.
