Almost Optimal Super-Constant-Pass Streaming Lower Bounds for Reachability

We give an almost quadratic $n^{2-o(1)}$ lower bound on the space consumption of any $o(\sqrt{\log n})$-pass streaming algorithm solving the (directed) $s$-$t$ reachability problem. This means that any such algorithm must essentially store the entire graph. As corollaries, we obtain almost quadratic space lower bounds for additional fundamental problems, including ... more >>>

Optimal Lower Bounds for Distributed and Streaming Spanning Forest Computation

Revisions: 1

We show optimal lower bounds for spanning forest computation in two different models:

* One wants a data structure for fully dynamic spanning forest in which updates can insert or delete edges amongst a base set of $n$ vertices. The sole allowed query asks for a spanning forest, which the ... more >>>

Cell-Probe Lower Bounds from Online Communication Complexity

Revisions: 1

In this work, we introduce an online model for communication complexity. Analogous to how online algorithms receive their input piece-by-piece, our model presents one of the players Bob his input piece-by-piece, and has the players Alice and Bob cooperate to compute a result it presents Bob with the next piece. ... more >>>

Crossing the Logarithmic Barrier for Dynamic Boolean Data Structure Lower Bounds

This paper proves the first super-logarithmic lower bounds on the cell probe complexity of dynamic \emph{boolean} (a.k.a. decision) data structure problems, a long-standing milestone in data structure lower bounds.

We introduce a new method for proving dynamic cell probe lower bounds and use it to prove a $\tilde{\Omega}(\log^{1.5} ... more >>>

Amortized Dynamic Cell-Probe Lower Bounds from Four-Party Communication

This paper develops a new technique for proving amortized, randomized cell-probe lower bounds on dynamic
data structure problems. We introduce a new randomized nondeterministic four-party communication model
that enables "accelerated", error-preserving simulations of dynamic data structures.

We use this technique to prove an $\Omega(n\left(\log n/\log\log n\right)^2)$ cell-probe ... more >>>
