**Block-Structured Integer and Linear Programming in Strongly Polynomial and Near Linear Time**We consider n-fold integer programming problems and their generalizations. These are integer linear programming problems for which the linear constraints exhibit a (recursive) block-structure: The problem decomposes into independent sub-problems after deleting a small number of constraints. ...

**Flexible List Colorings in Graphs with Special Degeneracy Conditions**For a given ε > 0, we say that a graph G is ε-flexibly k-choosable if the following holds: for any assignment L of lists of size k on V(G), if a preferred color is requested at any set R of vertices, then at least ε |R| of these requests are satisfied by some L-coloring. W...

**Reducing randomness in Isolation Lemma on decomposable graphs**The classic Isolation Lemma of Mulmuley et al. states that if F is a non-empty family of subsets of a universe U of size n, and we draw a weight function f : U -> {1,...,2n} uniformly at random, then with probability at least 1/2 there is a unique element of F that has the minimum weight ...

**Efficient fully dynamic elimination forests with applications to detecting long paths and cycles**We present a data structure that in a dynamic graph of treedepth at most d, which is modified over time by edge insertions and deletions, maintains an optimum-height elimination forest. The data structure achieves worst-case update time O(2^{d^2}), which matches the best known parameter dependenc...

**Vertex deletion into bipartite permutation graphs**A permutation graph can be defined as an intersection graph of segments whose endpoints lie on two parallel lines, one on each. A bipartite permutation graph is a permutation graph which is bipartite. We study the parameterized complexity of the bipartite permutation vertex deletion problem, whic...

**Improving Schroeppel and Shamir’s Algorithm for Subset Sum via Orthogonal Vectors**We present an O^*(2^{0.5 n}) time and O^*(2^{0.249999n}) space randomized algorithm for Subset Sum. This is the first improvement over the long-standing O^*(2^{n/2}) time and O^*(2^{n /4}) space algorithm due to Schroeppel and Shamir. This talk will also feature an introduction to the representative...

**Parameterized Inapproximability for Steiner Orientation by Gap Amplification**In the k\textnormal{-}\textsc{Steiner Orientation} problem, we are given a mixed graph, that is, with both directed and undirected edges, and a set of k terminal pairs. The goal is to find an orientation of the undirected edges that maximizes the number of terminal pairs for which there is a path...

**Efficient Computation of 2-Covers of a String**Quasiperiodicity is a generalization of periodicity that has been researched for almost 30 years. The notion of cover is the classic variant of quasiperiodicity. A cover of a text T is a string whose occurrences in T cover all positions of T. There are several algorithms computing ...

**A Deterministic Parallel APSP Algorithm and its Applications**In this talk we show a deterministic parallel all-pairs shortest paths algorithm for real-weighted directed graphs. The algorithm has $\tilde{O}(nm+(n/d)3)$ work and $\tilde{O}(d)$ depth for any depth parameter $d\in [1,n]$. To the best of our knowledge, such a trade-off has only been previously des...

In the Bin Packing problem one is given n items with different weights and m bins with a given capacity; the goal is to distribute the items over the bins without exceeding the capacity. Björklund, Husfeldt and Koivisto (SICOMP 2009) presented an O(2^n) time algorithm for Bin Packing. ...
