Reference for today’s lecture

Posted in Uncategorized by amitc1 on October 15, 2009

Today’s lecture was more technically heavy than usual. I hope it didn’t bring back any “calculus nightmares” for anyone! In any case, here is Indyk’s paper, which includes the algorithms and ideas we discussed today, plus quite a bit more.

We’re not quite done discussing all the higher-level issues raised by this, and some other recent algorithms we have seen. Next Tuesday, I want to spend approximately the first half discussing these things, and then the second half talking about the MEDIAN problem. As you’ll note, we’re continuing to tweak the lecture plan slightly as we go. For instance, today we ended up discussing stable distributions earlier than planned.
