This work is comprised of three separate parts: (1) Lower bounds for linear degeneracy testing (based on joint work with Bernard Chazelle ); (2) Aggregating inconsistent information (based on joint work with Moses Charikar and Alantha Newman ); and (3) The fast Johnson-Lindenstrauss transform and approximate nearest neighbor searching (based on joint work with Bernard Chazelle ). The first part discusses a fundamental computational geometric problem called rSUM: given n real numbers, do any r of them sum up to 0? It is the simplest case of a more general family of problems called degeneracy testing. This seemingly naive problem is in the core of the di cult y in designing al...
