Soheil Behnezhad, Laxman Dhulipala, Hossein Esfandiari, Jakub Łącki, Vahab Mirrokni, Warren Schudy
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We show the first AMPC algorithms for all of the studied problems that run in a constant number of rounds and use only O(n^ϵ) space per machine, where 0 < ϵ < 1.  ...  We empirically evaluate our algorithms on a set of large real-world graphs and show that our AMPC algorithms can achieve improvements in both running time and round-complexity over optimized MPC baselines  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Greg Cipriano, Milo Martin, and Florentina Popovici for their work on the key-value store used in this paper, and Raimondas Kiveris for his contributions to earlier  ...

Reducing asynchrony to synchronized rounds [article]

Andrei Damien, Cezara Dragoi, Alexandru Militaru, Josef Widder
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we bridge the gap between these two worlds.  ...  We introduce a (synchronous) round-based computational model and we prove a reduction for a class of asynchronous protocols to our new model.  ...  While in theory this is a restriction, the benchmarks in Fig. 11 show that well-known algorithms are rewritten by our tool.  ...

Structural Evaluation of AES and Chosen-Key Distinguisher of 9-Round AES-128 [chapter]

Pierre-Alain Fouque, Jérémy Jean, Thomas Peyrin
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We obtain these results by revisiting algorithmic theory and graph-based ideas to compute all the best differential characteristics in SPN ciphers, with a special focus on AES-like ciphers subject to related-keys  ...  We use a variant of Dijkstra's algorithm to efficiently find the most efficient related-key attacks on SPN ciphers with an algorithm linear in the number of rounds.  ...  , in practice we do not use the graph G directly, but two separate graphs G BC and G KS .  ...

The FAST Algorithm for Submodular Maximization [article]

Adam Breuer, Eric Balkanski, Yaron Singer
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Recent algorithms have comparable guarantees in terms of asymptotic worst case analysis, but their actual number of rounds and query complexity depend on very large constants and polynomials in terms of  ...  Our main contribution is a design that is extremely efficient both in terms of its non-asymptotic worst case query complexity and number of rounds, and in terms of its practical runtime.  ...  Experiments Our goal in this section is to show that in practice, Fast finds solutions whose value meets or exceeds alternatives in less parallel runtime than both state-of-the-art low-adaptivity algorithms  ...

Cheng-Zhi Qin, Lijun Zhan
2012 Computers & Geosciences  
Therefore, we designed a parallelization strategy based on graph theory.  ...  In recent years, rapid increases in hardware capacity of the graphics processing units (GPUs) provided in modern PCs have made it possible to meet this challenge in a PC environment.  ...  Therefore, a parallelization strategy based on graph theory has been proposed, and a graph-theory-based parallel MFDmd algorithm has been designed.  ...

The Topology of Biological Networks from a Complexity Perspective [article]

Ali Atiia, François Major, Jérôme Waldispühl
2018 arXiv   pre-print
The more distant (in degree distribution) a synthetic network is from biological networks the lower its achieved ratio.  ...  A simple graph representation is used where molecules (DNA, RNA, proteins and chemicals) are vertices and relations between them are directed and signed (promotional (+) or inhibitory (-)) edges.  ...  Simulation time runs exponentially (days of execution time on 128 parallel CPUs).  ...

Enhanced Ant Colony-Inspired ParallelAlgorithm to Improve Cryptographic PRNGs

J�rg Keller, Gabriele Spenger, Steffen Wendzel

Breaking the Linear-Memory Barrier in MPC: Fast MIS on Trees with Strongly Sublinear Memory [article]

Sebastian Brandt and Manuela Fischer and Jara Uitto
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Recently, studying fundamental graph problems in the Massively Parallel Computation (MPC) framework, inspired by the MapReduce paradigm, has gained a lot of attention.  ...  In particular, we show that the Maximal Independent Set (MIS) problem can be solved efficiently, that is, in O(log^3 log n) rounds, when the input graph is a tree.  ...  Even for dense graphs, where in theory the sublinear memory constraint is met, practicability of the parameter range does not need to be ensured; linear or slightly sublinear in n might be prohibitively  ...
