Presentation: Dissertation Talk: CS | May 7 | 1-2 p.m. | 521 Cory Hall
The advent of algorithms capable of leveraging vast quantities of data and computational resources has led to the proliferation of systems and tools aimed to facilitate the development and usage of these algorithms. Hardware trends, including the end of Moore's Law and the maturation of cloud computing, have placed a premium on the development of scalable algorithms designed for parallel... More >

The theory of NP-hardness of approximation has led to numerous tight characterizations of approximability of hard combinatorial optimization problems. Nonetheless, there are many fundamental problems which are out of reach for these techniques, such as problems that can be solved (or approximated) in quasi-polynomial time... More >
