A (static) Graph Algorithm
G=(V,E) Solution

A dynamic graph algorithm
No assumption about the updates. For problems involving queries (connectivity, distance,…): initial graph G=(V,E) followed by a sequence q,u,u,q,u,u,u,q,u,q,q,u, … q: query u: insertion/deletion of edge Each query has to be answered in an online manner. For problems that aim to maintain some structure (matching, spanner, min-cut,…) u,u,u,u,u,u,u, … The structure has to be maintained in an online manner.

Dynamic graph algorithm
Aim: Maintain a data structure which can answer each query efficiently (or maintain the structure), and process each update efficiently (much faster than the static algo) Types of dynamic graph algorithms: Incremental (only insertion of edges) Decremental (only deletion of edges) Fully dynamic (both insertion and deletion of edges)

A motivating example : Undirected Connectivity
Static solution: v a b c d

Fully dynamic algorithms for undirected graphs
Min-cut Best static algorithm: O(m polylog n) (Randomized) [Karger, 1996] Fully dynamic algorithm: O( 𝒏 ) update time [Thorup, 2001] Graph spanner Definition: A subgraph which is sparse and yet preserves all-pairs distances approximately.

Data structure for dynamic trees

Data structures Stacks Queues Binary heap Binary search tree ...
Fibinaacci heap Too elementary Limited applications Too complex Hardly any application !

Power of Data structures: An inspirational example
Maintain n records r(1),…,r(n) under the following operations Add(i,j,x) : Add x to each record from r(i),…,r(j). All-swap(i,j) : r(i)↔r(j), r(i+1) ↔ r(j-1), r(i+2) ↔ r(j-2). Report(i) : report record r(i). Report-min(i,j) : report the smallest record from r(i),…,r(j). Each operation in O(log n) worst case time.

Decremental O( 𝒎 ) update time algorithm for connectivity
Key tools in addition to ET tree data structure: Trivial algorithm (for handling deletion of a tree edge) : Let (u,v) be a tree edge in the spanning forest. Let its deletion creates trees T1 and T2. Let µ be the number of non-tree edges incident on T2. Replacement edge can be found in time O(µ log n) time. Random sampling

The role of random sampling
Exercise: If none of 2k log n balls is blue, then with probability 1−𝑛 −2 , the fraction of blue balls is less than 1/k. Uniform random sampling with replacement

Handling the deletion of a tree edge

Handling the deletion of a tree edge 2-Level approach

Algorithm for handling deletion of a tree edge
O(µ2) time If (e ϵ F2 \ F1) scan non-tree edges at level 2 to find replacement edge. Else Let T be the tree to which e belongs; (T1,T2)  Split(T,e); Repeat k log n times { (u,v)  Sample-edge(T2); If (u,v) is a cut-edge { add (u,v) to F1; Merge(T1,T2, (u,v)); return; } Scan all non-tree edges incident on T2; If less than 1/k fraction are cut-edges move all edges of cut(T1,T2) to Level 2 and add one of them to F2. Else add an edge of cut(T1,T2) to F1 O(k logn) time O(µ1(T2)) time 1−𝑛 −2 probability

Bounding µ2 (number of non-tree edges at level 2)
Upon splitting T into T1 and T2, how many edges are passed to level 2 ? ≤ 𝑛𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑛𝑜𝑛_𝑡𝑟𝑒𝑒 𝑒𝑑𝑔𝑒𝑠 𝑖𝑛𝑐𝑖𝑑𝑒𝑛𝑡 𝑜𝑛 𝑇2 𝑘 charge 𝑑𝑒𝑔⁡(𝑣) 𝑘 to each 𝑣 ϵ T2 Level 2 Level 1 T1 T2

Analysis A vertex v is processed only O(log n) times.
Whenever v is processed The processing cost of v is O(deg(v)) The number of edges that move to level 2 is less than 𝑑𝑒𝑔⁡(𝑣) 𝑘 Hence µ2 , the number of edges at level 2 is O( 𝑚 𝑘 log n) Processing cost per update : 𝑚 𝑘 log n k O(m) [1−𝑛 −2 ] = O( 𝒎 )

Transforming to fully dynamic environment
Add every newly inserted edge to level 2. Periodically rebuild the data structure after every ( 𝒎 ) insertions. Expected amortized time per update : O( 𝒎 𝒍𝒐𝒈 𝒏)
