In this talk I will present dynamic algorithms with polylogarithmic update time for estimating the size of the maximum matching of a graph undergoing edge insertions and deletions with approximation ratio strictly better than 2. These algorithms answer in the affirmative (the value version of) a major open question repeatedly asked in the dynamic graph algorithms literature. I will give a high-level idea of the key ingredients needed for this result, and discuss subsequent developments.
Based on a SODA 2023 best paper, joint with Sayan Bhattacharya, Peter Kiss and Thatchaphol Saranurak.
