Lecture# Max Sum Diversification

Description

This lecture covers the concept of maximizing diversity in document selection by selecting a subset of documents from a given set to optimize a diversity measure. It delves into the Max-sum-Diversification problem, which involves selecting documents to maximize diversity. The lecture also explores the complexity of determining if a graph has a clique of a certain size, presenting the challenges and implications of this problem. Additionally, it discusses theorems related to negative type and convex optimization, providing insights into algorithms that satisfy specific conditions. The lecture concludes with a focus on simplifying assumptions in convex optimization and the efficient solutions it offers.

MATH-513: Metric embeddings

The course aims to introduce the basic concepts and results on metric embeddings, or more precisely on approximate embeddings. This area has been under rapid development since the 90's and it has stro

Graph theory

In mathematics, graph theory is the study of graphs, which are mathematical structures used to model pairwise relations between objects. A graph in this context is made up of vertices (also called nodes or points) which are connected by edges (also called links or lines). A distinction is made between undirected graphs, where edges link two vertices symmetrically, and directed graphs, where edges link two vertices asymmetrically. Graphs are one of the principal objects of study in discrete mathematics.

Glossary of graph theory

This is a glossary of graph theory. Graph theory is the study of graphs, systems of nodes or vertices connected in pairs by lines or edges.

Connectivity (graph theory)

In mathematics and computer science, connectivity is one of the basic concepts of graph theory: it asks for the minimum number of elements (nodes or edges) that need to be removed to separate the remaining nodes into two or more isolated subgraphs. It is closely related to the theory of network flow problems. The connectivity of a graph is an important measure of its resilience as a network. In an undirected graph G, two vertices u and v are called connected if G contains a path from u to v.

Path (graph theory)

In graph theory, a path in a graph is a finite or infinite sequence of edges which joins a sequence of vertices which, by most definitions, are all distinct (and since the vertices are distinct, so are the edges). A directed path (sometimes called dipath) in a directed graph is a finite or infinite sequence of edges which joins a sequence of distinct vertices, but with the added restriction that the edges be all directed in the same direction. Paths are fundamental concepts of graph theory, described in the introductory sections of most graph theory texts.

Vertex (graph theory)

In discrete mathematics, and more specifically in graph theory, a vertex (plural vertices) or node is the fundamental unit of which graphs are formed: an undirected graph consists of a set of vertices and a set of edges (unordered pairs of vertices), while a directed graph consists of a set of vertices and a set of arcs (ordered pairs of vertices). In a diagram of a graph, a vertex is usually represented by a circle with a label, and an edge is represented by a line or arrow extending from one vertex to another.
