AB - Computing a maximum weighted stable set in a bipartite graph is considered well-solved and usually approached with preflow-push, Ford–Fulkerson or network simplex algorithms. We present a combinatorial algorithm for the problem that is not based on flows. Numerical tests suggest that this algorithm performs quite well in practice and is competitive with flow based algorithms especially in the case of dense graphs.

AB - In this paper, we present a randomized constant factor approximation
algorithm for the metric minimum facility location problem with uniform
costs and demands in a distributed setting, in which every point can
open a facility. In particular, our distributed algorithm uses three
communication rounds with message sizes bounded to O(log n) bits where
n is the number of points. We also extend our algorithm to constant
powers of metric spaces, where we also obtain a randomized constant
factor approximation algorithm.

AB - In this paper we develop an efficient implementation for a k-means clustering algorithm. Our algorithm is a variant of KMHybrid [28, 20], i.e. it uses a combination of Lloyd-steps and random swaps, but as a novel feature it uses coresets to speed up the algorithm. A coreset is a small weighted set of points that approximates the original point set with respect to the considered problem. The main strength of the algorithm is that it can quickly determine clusterings of the same point set for many values of k. This is necessary in many applications, since, typically, one does not know a good value for k in advance. Once we have clusterings for many different values of k we can determine a good choice of k using a quality measure of clusterings that is independent of k, for example the average silhouette coefficient. The average silhouette coefficient can be approximated using coresets.To evaluate the performance of our algorithm we compare it with algorithm KMHybrid [28] on typical 3D data sets for an image compression application and on artificially created instances. Our data sets consist of 300,000 to 4.9 million points. We show that our algorithm significantly outperforms KMHybrid on most of these input instances. Additionally, the quality of the solutions computed by our algorithm deviates less than that of KMHybrid.We also computed clusterings and approximate average silhouette coefficient for k=1,…,100 for our input instances and discuss the performance of our algorithm in detail.

AB - Spam e-mails have become a serious technological and economic problem. So far we have been reasonably able to resist spam e-mails and use the Internet for regular communication by deploying complementary anti-spam approaches. However, if we are to avert the danger of losing the Internet email service as a valuable, free, and worldwide medium of open communication, anti-spam activities should be performed more systematically than is done in current, mainly heuristic, anti-spam approaches. A formal framework within which the modes of spam delivery, anti-spam approaches, and their effectiveness can be investigated, may encourage a shift in methodology and pave the way for new, holistic anti-spam approaches. This paper presents a model of the Internet e-mail infrastructure as a directed graph and a deterministic finite automaton, and draws on automata theory to formally derive the modes of spam delivery possible. Finally the effectiveness of anti-spam approaches in terms of coverage of spamming modes is assessed.

AB - In this paper we present the design of a particle filter for post filtering instantaneous positioning estimates of GSM mobile terminals. The instantaneous estimates are obtained by comparing signal power levels, which are reported by the mobile terminal to the base station, with a database of predictions using a novel statistically motivated similarity measure. Unlike a simple Euclidian distance measure, the proposed scheme incorporates inherent information about signal power level measurements requested by the serving base station but not reported by the mobile terminal. Furthermore, we show how the Monte Carlo method of particle filtering helps to obtain better position estimates and, surprisingly, also helps to reduce the computational complexity. Results are presented for real field data.

AB - We present a web computing library (PUBWCL) in Java that allows to execute tightly coupled, massively parallel algorithms in the bulk-synchronous (BSP) style on PCs distributed over the internet whose owners are willing to donate their unused computation power. PUBWCL is realized as a peer-to-peer system and features migration and restoration of BSP processes executed on it. The use of Java guarantees a high level of security and makes PUBWCL platform- independent. In order to estimate the loss of efficiency inherent in such a Java-based system, we have compared it to our C-based PUB-Library.
As the unused computation power of the participating PCs is unpredictable, we need novel strategies for load balancing that have no access to future changes of the computation power available for the application. We develop, analyze, and compare different load balancing strategies for PUBWCL. In order to handle the influence of the fluctuating available computation power, we classify the external work load.
During our evaluation of the load balancing algorithms we simulated the external work load in order to have repeatable testing conditions. With the best performing load balancing strategy we could save 39% of the execution time on average and even up to 50% in particular cases, in our test environment.
