Nicole Wein, Simons Postdoctoral Leader
DIMACS, Rutgers University

The size and complexity of today’s graphs present challenges that necessitate the discovery of new algorithms. One central area of research in this endeavor is computing and estimating distances in graphs. In this talk I will discuss two fundamental families of distance problems in the context of modern graphs: Diameter/Radius/Eccentricities and Hopsets/Shortcut Sets.

Security, robustness, and fairness are all important non-functional properties of critical systems, such as software applications in autonomous driving, healthcare, and finance. Unlike functional correctness, which has been the subject of extensive research, techniques that can formally guarantee these non-functional properties are still severely lacking.

Diversity and Inclusion in Open-Source Software (OSS) has a significant impact on the OSS ecosystem and society. The low state of diversity and inclusion in OSS (e.g., women participation ranging from 1.5% to 11%) has unfortunate effects on OSS projects, individual contributors, and society.

Traditional machine learning systems are trained on vast quantities of annotated data or experience. These systems often do not generalize to new, related problems that emerge after training, such as conversing about new topics or interacting with new environments.

We present succinct distance oracles for (unweighted) interval graphs and related classes of graphs, using a novel succinct data structure for ordinal trees that supports the mapping between preorder (i.e., depth-first) ranks and level-order (breadth-first) ranks of nodes in constant time.
