We show that in the bounded degree model for graph property testing,

adaptivity is essential. An algorithm is *non-adaptive* if it makes all queries to the input before receiving any answers. We call a property *non-trivial* if it does not depend only on the degree distribution of the nodes. We ...

Our first theorem in this papers is a hierarchy theorem for the query complexity of testing graph properties with $1$-sided error; more precisely, we show that for every super-polynomial $f$, there is a graph property whose 1-sided-error query complexity is $f(\Theta(1/\varepsilon))$. No result of this type was previously known for ... more >>>

The area of graph property testing seeks to understand the relation between the global properties of a graph and its local statistics. In the classical model, the local statistics of a graph is defined relative to a uniform distribution over the graphâ€™s vertex set. A graph property $\mathcal{P}$ is said ... more >>>
