Michael C. Loui, The Complexity of Sorting on Distributed Systems, 1984

The problem

Model Asynchronous network N identical processors on a ring Known topology No failures Bounded memory O(logN) Bounded message size O(logN)

N=8 L=100 p0p1 p2 p3 p5 p7 p6 IV(2) = 34 IV(3) = 90 IV(6)=16 IV(7)=4 IV(1) =29IV(0) = 45 p4 IV(4) = 8IV(5) = 28 p0p1 p2 p3 p5 p7 p6 FV(2) = 90 FV(3) = 4 FV(6)=28 FV(7)=29 FV(1) =45FV(0) = 34 p4 FV(4) = 8 FV(5) = 16

Upper bound

Simple algorithm Program for i: Phase 1 : Select a leader Phase 2 if leader then send(Sorted( {IV{i} ) else [ receive Sorted ({IV(leader), IV(leader+1) … IV(i - 1)}) send Sorted( {IV(leader), IV(leader+1) … IV(i) } ) ]

Phase 3: receive Sorted(S) FV(i) = min( S ) send Sorted( S \ FV(i))

Phase 1: find a leader. This will be the base b=0. Phase 2: b sends its value. each processor i at its turn receives the sorted values IV(0),…IV(i-1), and sends the sorted values IV(0),…IV(i) Phase 3: each i (starting at i=0) receives the suffix of length N-i of the sorted list, and send the suffix of length N-(i+1) of the sorted list. At the end each I holds the i+1 st value

Phase 1: O(N logN) messages of size O(logL) each Phase 2: i sends i+1 messages of size O(logL) Phase 3: i sends N-(i+1) messages of size O(logL) Hence, i sends at phases 2 and 3 N messages of size O(log L)

Messages: O( N log N) + O ( N 2 ) = O ( N 2 ) Bits: O (N 2 log L ) Time: O(N)

Optimal algorithm Decode the sorted sequence more efficiently Decode a sequence S = (a 1, …, a k ) by (a 1 – a 0, a 2 – a 1, …, a k – a k-1 ) (assume a 0 =0)

For a given S = (a 1, …, a k ), decode (a 1 – a 0, a 2 – a 1, …, a k – a k-1 ). write a i – a i-1 in binary, and then replace 0 by 00 1 by 10, by 01 ( and ) by 11 E(S) is the resulting binary string

Length of E(S) ( Better than O(NlogL) ) (prove)

insert and delete_min of E(S) a1a1... a i+1 -a i a i -a i-1 a n -a n-1... a1a1 a i -a i-1 a n -a n-1... a i+1 - bb - a i a 1 a 2 -a 1 a n -a n-1... a n -a n-1... a2a2 insert b, Delete_min

Optimal algorithm Program for i: Phase 1 : Select a leader Phase 2 if leader then send Encode( {IV{i} ) else [ receive SortedEncoding({IV(leader), IV(leader+1)… IV(i - 1)}) send SortedEncoding( {IV(leader), IV(leader+1) … IV(i) } ) ]

Phase 3: receive SortedEncoding(S) FV(i) = min( S ) send SortedEncoding( S \ FV(i))

complexity Phase 2 and 3 each processor sends a decoding of a sequence of length at most k, hence the bit complexity is In the model the memory is bounded by O(logN), hence L=O(logN), and the message complexity is

Lower bound

Sketch: find many distributions of initial value so that N/4 values will have to travel a distance of at least N/16.

SBS – set of finite sequences of binary strings where each component is non-empty Lemma 1: Less than 4 b+1 /6 sequences in SBS have at most b bits n(b) – number of sequences with b bits

Pigeonhole principle If you put n pigeons in k holes, then at least one hole Will contain at least N/k pigeons If the sum of k numbers is N, then at least one of them is at least N/k

Summing over all cuts:

Hence there exists a distribution d* such that Namely, there exists a distribution s.t. the total number of bits sent over the cut c is

Notes: - The proof applies also to synchronous systems -The memory at each processor can be unbounded, or even infinite. -By the model each message is bounded by O(logN), thus the lower bound on the number of messages is
