DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Csaba Toth\nhosted by Uli Wagner\nAbstract: Given a se
t of n points in a metric space\, that arrive one by one\, the Unit Cluste
ring problem consists of partitioning the points into the minimum number o
f clusters (subsets) of diameter at most one\; while the Unit Covering pro
blem consists of covering all points by the minimum number of balls of uni
t radius. In this talk\, we explore how the competitive ratio of online al
gorithms depend on the dimension in Euclidean spaces.Under the L∞ norm\,
we show that the competitive ratio of any online algorithm (deterministic
or randomized) for Unit Clustering is Ω(d). We also give a randomized on
line algorithm with competitive ratio O(d2) for Unit Clustering of integer
points. The competitive ratio of any deterministic online algorithm for U
nit Covering under L∞ is at least 2d\; and this ratio is the best possib
le.Under the L2 norm\, we describe an online deterministic algorithm with
competitive ratio O(1.321d) for Unit Covering\, improving on the earlier r
ecord by an exponential factor\; and give a lower bound of d+1 for the com
petitive ratio of any algorithm for d&geq\;1 (Joint work with Adrian Dumit
rescu and Anirban Ghosh.)
