Distance Computation in Massive Graphs

Distance Computation in Massive Graphs

(The talk will be given in English)


Speaker:     Dr. Michal Dory

Department of Computer Science, ETH Zurich


Computing distances in a graph is one of the most fundamental problems in graph algorithms.
But how can we solve it when the input graph is too large and cannot be stored in one computer?
This type of problems are studied in the area of distributed computing. 
In this talk, I will give an overview of the area of distributed computing, with a focus on distance computation.
I will discuss a recent line of work that led to extremely fast distributed algorithms for approximating shortest paths, improving exponentially over the state-of-the-art.
