Randomized Distributed Decision David Peleg Joint work with: Pierre Fraigniaud Amos Korman Merav Parter

2
The goal: Solve problems collaboratively by multiple distributed processors Distributed computing Shared memory (multi-cores) Message passing (network) Communication mode:

3
Point-to-point communication network The distributed network model V={v 1,…,v n } - Processors (network sites) E - bidirectional communication links

4
Why is it interesting? Theoretical viewpoint: Several inherent differences between the distributed and the traditional centralized- sequential computational models Practical viewpoint: Extremely wide applicability on all levels

5
In centralized-sequential setting: Processor knows everything (inputs, intermediate results, etc.) In distributed setting: Processors have only a partial picture Incomplete knowledge

6
Do not know the network topology Know only their local portion of the input Do not know who else participates Do not know current stage of others Incomplete knowledge X 1 =3 v1v1 V?V? X=? ? In particular, processors:

7
G Intermediate topology knowledge model The KT r model: Each processor u sees B r (u), its r-neighborhood KT 2 (seeing 2-neighborhoods) (hypothetical model…) B 2 (u) u

8
We assume a synchronous model (the entire system is driven by global clock) Timing and synchrony Processors machine cycle: 1. Send messages to some neighbors 2. Receive messages from neighbors 3. Perform internal computation

9
The LOCAL Model Focus on impact of locality / distances Message size and internal computation are unbounded Message size and internal computation are unbounded

10
The LOCAL model Complexity measure: Time (# of rounds) Complexity measure: Time (# of rounds) G r In r rounds, r each processor u can collect complete information on B r (u), its r-neighborhood r=3 B 3 (u)

11
Equivalent viewpoint Instead of considering r-round algorithms – G consider 0-round (no-communication) algorithms in the KT r model

12
Local distributed computation Input: Graph G(V,E) Local views of r-neighborhood Goal: Compute a global solution for a given problem G

13
Language: (Decidable) collection of pairs Local distributed computation tasks as languages X 1 =3 v1v1 X 2 =6 v2v2 X 3 =8 v3v3 X 4 =2 v4v4 X 5 =3 v5v5 X 6 =3 v6v6 X 7 =3 v7v7

Local computational tasks Local Construction (LC) Tasks: Given a global problem π on a graph G, construct a solution x locally Local Decision (LD) Tasks: Given a global problem π on a graph G and a proposed solution x, decide (or verify) locally that x solves π on G

Distributed Complexity Theory Proof Labeling Schemes [Korman, Fraigniaud, P, 05] Locally Checkable Proofs [Goos, Suomela, 11] Decidability Classes for Mobile Agent Computing [Fraigniaud, Pelc, 2012] Locality & Checkability in Wait-free Computing [Fraigniaud, Rajsbaum, Travers, 11] Local Distributed Decision [Fraigniaud, Korman, P, 11] On the Impact of Identifiers on Local Decision [Fraigniaud, Halldórsson, Korman, 12] [Fraigniaud, Goos, Korman, Suomela, 13]

21
Decision rules: Nodes need to collectively decide whether the given instance belongs to the language. Local decision tasks [Fraigniaud, Korman, P, 11]

22
YesNo Local decision tasks Decision rules: In a legal (YES) instance: all nodes output YES In an illegal (NO) instance: some nodes output NO [Fraigniaud, Korman, P, 11] Yes

23
Local decision tasks [Fraigniaud, Korman, P, 11] The asymmetry between the two cases looks odd, but… Decision rules: In a legal (YES) instance: all nodes output YES In an illegal (NO) instance: some nodes output NO

24
Local decision tasks [Fraigniaud, Korman, P, 11] Note: If every node is required to know the correct answer on both legal and illegal instances, then no local solutions are possible! Decision rules: In a legal (YES) instance: all nodes output YES In an illegal (NO) instance: some nodes output NO

25
Local decision tasks Example: Consider the following very local task: Input: Binary vector x Question: Is v 1 s input x(v 1 )=1 ? X 1 =1 v1v1 X 2 =0 v2v2 X 3 =0 v3v3 X 4 =1 v4v4 X 5 =0 v5v5 X 6 =1 v6v6 X 7 =1 v7v7

26
Local decision tasks Algorithm: All nodes other than v 1 say YES. Node v 1 answers according to x(v 1 ). X 1 =1 v1v1 X 2 =0 v2v2 X 3 =0 v3v3 X 4 =1 v4v4 X 5 =0 v5v5 X 6 =1 v6v6 X 7 =1 v7v7 Requiring all nodes to know the answer means no local solution is possible…

Class of languages that have a t-round local decider. LD(t) (Local Decision) Local analogue for the class P LOCAL Decider

29
Local Computation Tasks The class of all languages is divided into 4 classes: 1.Hard to construct and hard to decide. 2. Easy to construct and easy to decide. 3.Hard to construct but easy to decide. 4. Easy to construct but hard to decide.

30
Hard to construct but easy to decide (locally)

31
Deterministic decision in a single round. No

32
Easy to construct but hard to decide (locally) 0-round construction: Each node marks itself non-selected ( x(u) 0 ) At Most One Selected

33
Easy to construct but hard to decide (locally) Observation: AMOS is not locally decidable in o(n) rounds. At Most One Selected

34
Hard to construct and hard to decide (locally) Leader Election Construction barrier due to symmetry breaking: O(diameter) rounds are required. Observation: LE is not locally decidable in o(n) rounds. Observation: LE is not locally decidable in o(n) rounds.

35
Easy to construct and easy to decide (locally) Theorem [Naor, Stockmeyer, STOC 93]: Weak 2-Coloring in fixed odd degree graphs can be constructed in O(1) rounds. Theorem [Naor, Stockmeyer, STOC 93]: Weak 2-Coloring in fixed odd degree graphs can be constructed in O(1) rounds. Local decision: in single round No Local construction:

36
Thm [Naor, 96] : Randomization does not help for 3-coloring a ring: Randomized lower bound = deterministic upper bound = Θ(log*n) rounds. Thm [Naor, Stockmeyer, 93] : For constant degree graphs, certain randomized labeling algorithms can be de-randomized. Does Randomization help in local construction? Low-Degree Graphs So randomization fails to help?

37
Does Randomization help in local construction? Thm [Alon, Babai, Itai, 86], [Luby, 86] : randomly in O(logn ) w.h.p. So randomization does help? …

38

39
Does Randomization help in local decision? Recall: AMOS is not locally decidable in o(n) rounds.

40
Does Randomization help in local decision? Use randomness to decide! Recall: AMOS is not locally decidable in o(n) rounds.

43
Does randomization help in local decision? [Fraigniaud, Korman, P, 11] Partial answer: Yes, for: - some families of languages, - some values of p and q Thm: p 2 +q=1 is a sharp threshold for hereditary languages* * Languages that are closed under inclusion.

44
p (yes probability) q (no probability) Yes Randomization threshold No p 2 +q=1 is a sharp threshold for hereditary languages p 2 +q=1 Does randomization help in local decision? [Fraigniaud, Korman, P, 11]

De-randomization of (p,q)-decider for p 2 +q>1 L Given: Hereditary language L. with a t-local (p,q)-decider L A t-local (deterministic) decider for L. : t=R sec (t) Every node u inspects its radius t neighborhood B(u) B(u) L If B(u) L, then u outputs yes, else it outputs no.

61
De-randomization of (p,q)-decider for p 2 +q>1 Every node u inspects its radius tneighborhood B(u) B(u) L If B(u) L, then u outputs yes, else it outputs no. Simulation correctness proof: Legal instance I L : L As L is hereditary, all neighborhoods B(u) are legal

62
De-randomization of (p,q)-decider for p 2 +q>1 IlLegal instance I L: Need to show that at least one ball B(u) is illegal. Towards contradiction assume all balls are legal. Maximal legal sub-path u

63
Hence, contradiction to the fact that is the maximal legal sub-path in. De-randomization of (p,q)-decider for p 2 +q>1 Claim:

64
The Gluing Lemma The union of two legal instances is legal provided their overlap is sufficiently large The required overlap size depends on the value p 2 +q-1

65
The Gluing Lemma The required overlap size depends on the value p 2 +q-1

66
