Will Perkins - Algorithmic Pirogov-Sinai theory

We develop efficient algorithms to approximate the partition function and sample from the hard-core and Potts models on lattices at sufficiently low temperatures in the phase coexistence regime. In…

Sampath Kannan - Fairness in Algorithmic Decision Making

In this talk we survey some formulations of fairness requirements for decision making under uncertainty. We then discuss results from 3 recent papers:1) Treating individuals fairly is not in conflict…

Lap Chi Lau - The Paulsen problem, continuous operator scaling, and smoothed analysis

The Paulsen problem is a basic open problem in operator theory. We define a continuous version of the operator scaling algorithm to solve this problem. A key step is to show that the continuous…

Mary Wootters - Improved Decoding of Folded Reed-Solomon and Multiplicity Codes

List-decoding is an important primitive in the theory of error correcting codes, and it has long been a goal to obtain explicit constructions of capacity-achieving, efficiently list-decodable codes. …

Tselil Schramm - (Nearly) Efficient Algorithms for the Graph Matching Problem in Correlated Random Graphs

The Graph Matching problem is a robust version of the Graph Isomorphism problem: given two not-necessarily-isomorphic graphs, the goal is to find a permutation of the vertices which maximizes the…
