Informatyka Teoretyczna Online interval coloring for bounded length intervals 
Online interval coloring was studied by Kierstead and Trotter. They presented an algorithm with competitive ratio 3,and showed a construction which implies that there is no algorithm with competitive ratio strictly less than 3. However, their construction in asymptotic case requires intervals with possibly unbounded length. We are interested in a variant of the online interval coloring problem in which all intervals have lenght between 1 and L. We show that as L tends to infinity the asymptotic competitive ratio tends to 5/2. Moreover we show that for L=1+epsi there is no algorithm with competitive ratio less than 5/3 and for L=2+epsi there is no algotihm with competitive ratio less than 7/4. Finally, we want to know how the asymptotic competitive ratio changes as a function of L.

Optymalizacja Kombinatoryczna Majority coloring games 
A vertex coloring of graph G satisfies the majority rule, if for each vertex v at most half of its neighbors receive the same color as v. A coloring which satisfies the majority rule is called majority coloring. We consider its game version. For given graph G and color set C two players, Alice and Bob, in alternating turns color vertices with respect to the majority rule. Alice wins when every vertex becomes colored, while goal for Bob is to create a vertex which cannot be colored with any color belonging to the set C without breaking the majority rule. Let µ_{g(G)} denote the least number of colors belonging to C for which Alice has winning strategy in game on graph G. We show that if the color set C is finite, there exists a graph G on which Bob has winning strategy. We prove also that for graphs with col(G) = 3 parameter µ_{g(G)} is still unbounded.

Informatyka Teoretyczna Online bipartite matching with amortized O(log²n) replacements 
In the online bipartite matching problem with replacements, all the vertices on one side of the bipartition are given, and the vertices on the other side arrive one by one with all their incident edges. The goal is to maintain a maximum matching while minimizing the number of changes (replacements) to the matching. We show that the greedy algorithm that always takes the shortest augmenting path from the newly inserted vertex (denoted the SAP protocol) uses at most amortized O(log²n) replacements per insertion, where n is the total number of vertices inserted. This is the first analysis to achieve a polylogarithmic number of replacements for any replacement strategy, almost matching the Ω(log n) lower bound. The previous best known strategy achieved amortized O(√n) replacements [Bosek, Leniowski, Sankowski, Zych, FOCS 2014].

Informatyka Teoretyczna Representation and coloring of partially ordered sets under conditions of incomplete information 
The purpose of my talk is to discuss several problems related to coloring and construction of appropriate representation for partially ordered sets (also posets) and graph classes derived from posets. In these problems, we will assume the following two scenarios: in the first scenario, an algorithm receives a poset element one after another. For each new element added, the algorithm takes an irrevocable decision (assigns a color or extends a current representation) just after this element is presented (algorithms that work under such conditions are called online). in the second scenario, an algorithm receives an incomparability graph of some poset and a representation of some parts of this graph, and its task is to check whether this partial representation can be extended to a representation of the whole graph that is appropriate for the considered class of graphs. In the context of online algorithms, we focus our attention on two problems: partitioning posets into chains, which is a special case of online coloring of incomparability graphs, and embedding posets into ddimentional space R^{d}. In the context of extending partial representations problems, we are interested in graph classes whose representations introduce a natural order on vertices of these graphs. We focus our attention on:

Optymalizacja Kombinatoryczna Randomized PrimalDual Analysis of RANKING for Online Bipartite Matching 
We give a simple proof that the RANKING algorithm of Karp, Vazirani and Vazirani is 11/e competitive for the online bipartite matching problem. The proof is via a randomized primaldual argument. Primaldual algorithms have been successfully used for many online algorithm problems, but the dual constraints are always satisfied deterministically. This is the first instance of a nontrivial randomized primaldual algorithm in which the dual constraints only hold in expectation.

Informatyka Teoretyczna A Tight Bound for Shortest Augmenting Paths on Trees 
The shortest augmenting path technique is one of the fundamental ideas used in maximum matching and maximum flow algorithms. Since being introduced by Edmonds and Karp in 1972, it has been widely applied in many different settings. Surprisingly, despite this extensive usage, it is still not well understood even in the simplest case: online bipartite matching problem on trees. In this problem a bipartite tree T=(WB, E) is being revealed online, i.e., in each round one vertex from B with its incident edges arrives. It was conjectured by Chaudhuri et. al. that the total length of all shortest augmenting paths found is O(n log n). In this paper we prove a tight O(n log n) upper bound for the total length of shortest augmenting paths for trees improving over O(n log² n) bound.

Such a decision, once made, is irrevocable. The objective is to maximize the size of the resulting matching. We will see a sketch of simple proof of their result that the Ranking algorithm for this problem achieves a competitive ratio of 1 − 1/e. B.E. Birnbaum, C. Mathieu.

Optymalizacja Kombinatoryczna Handwritten graph diagrams recognition 
Graph visualisation problem is well known and there are many solutions to it. The reverse process  graph recognition  has been disregarded so far. Such solution has wide applications  from scientific to didactic. This paper focuses on handwritten graphs. Objects do not necessarily have regular shapes and there might be a lot of noise. Using computer vision techniques, we recognize first vertices and then edges. The result of the algorithm is a list of edges and a generated graph visualisation.

Optymalizacja Kombinatoryczna On some problems in planar graphs 
We give insight into competitive reachability for outerplanar graphs and also for other classes of graphs with bounded degree. Competitive reachability is a game where two players orient the edges of undirected graph G alternately until all edges of G have been oriented. One player wants to minimize the number of ordered pairs of distinct vertices (x, y) with a directed path from x to y. And the second want to maximize it. Furthermore we focus on harmonious coloring conjecture for outerplanar graphs and further attempts in this area. A harmonious coloring of a graph G is a proper vertex coloring of G in which every pair of colors appears on adjacent vertices at most once. The harmonious chromatic number, denoted by h(G), is the minimum number of colors in a harmonious coloring. Analogically we define harmonious edge coloring in which every pair of colors appears on incident edges at most once. The minimal number of color we denote by h'(G). The conjecture states that h(G)<=h'(G). Finally we tackle the hamiltonian cycles in grid graphs. Grid graph are finite vertex induced subsets of infinite lattice, composed from unitside squares, equilateral triangles or equilateral hexagons. Decide whether the grid graph has hamiltonian cycle is NPhard in general.

Informatyka Teoretyczna Succinct progress measures for solving parity games 
The recent breakthrough paper by Calude et al. has given the first algorithm for solving parity games in quasipolynomial time, where previously the best algorithms were mildly subexponential. We devise an alternative quasipolynomial time algorithm based on progress measures, which allows us to reduce the space required from quasipolynomial to nearly linear. Our key technical tools are a novel concept of ordered tree coding, and a succinct tree coding result that we prove using bounded adaptive multicounters, both of which are interesting in their own right. Based on the paper:

Informatyka Teoretyczna On the asymptotic density of valid sentences in firstorder logic about one binary relation 
This study arises from the following question: what is the proportion of tautologies of the given length n among the number of all FO relational sentences of length n? We investigate the simplest language with a fixed signature σ = {r}, where r is a binary relation symbol. The model with four logic symbols and an universal quantifier lead us to discover an unexpected result  the fraction of valid sentences is always greater than a fixed constant and therefore the density, if exists, is positive. The main theorem is derived from the analysis of structural properties of FO formulae, which themselves bear strict resemblance to structural properties of λterms.

Kryptologia Helios: Webbased OpenAudit Voting 
The talk is based on the paper by Ben Adida with the same title [1]. In addition, we recall ElGamal encryption scheme and zeroknwoledge proofs. Voting with cryptographic auditing, sometimes called openaudit voting, has remained, for the most part, a theoretical endeavor. In spite of dozens of fascinating protocols and recent groundbreaking advances in the field, there exist only a handful of specialized implementations that few people have experienced directly. As a result, the benefits of cryptographically audited elections have remained elusive. We present Helios, the first webbased, openaudit voting system. Helios is publicly accessible today: anyone can create and run an election, and any willing observer can audit the entire process. Helios is ideal for online software communities, local clubs, student government, and other environments where trustworthy, secretballot elections are required but coercion is not a serious concern. With Helios, we hope to expose many to the power of openaudit elections.

Podstawy Informatyki Generic Complexity of Presburger Arithmetic by Alexander N. Rybalov 
Fischer and Rabin proved in that the decision problem for Presburger Arithmetic has at least double exponential worstcase complexity (for deterministic and nondeterministic Turing machines). In paper 4 a theory of genericcase complexity was developed, where algorithmic problems are studied on "most" inputs instead of set of all inputs. An interesting question rises about existing of more efcient (say, polynomial) generic algorithm deciding Presburger Arithmetic on some set of closed formulas of asymptotic density 1 (socalled generic set). We prove, however, that there is not even an exponential generic algorithm working correctly on a set of inputs which (socalled strongly generic set).

Optymalizacja Kombinatoryczna Ulam Sequences and Ulam Sets 
The Ulam sequence is given by a1=1,a2=2, and then, for n≥3, the element an is defined as the smallest integer that can be written as the sum of two distinct earlier elements in a unique way. This gives the sequence 1,2,3,4,6,8,11,13,16,…, which has a mysterious quasiperiodic behavior that is not understood. Ulam's definition naturally extends to higher dimensions: for a set of initial vectors {v1,…,vk}⊂ℝn, we define a sequence by repeatedly adding the smallest elements that can be uniquely written as the sum of two distinct vectors already in the set. The resulting sets have very rich structure that turns out to be universal for many commuting binary operations. We give examples of different types of behavior, prove several universality results, and describe new unexplained phenomena.

Informatyka Teoretyczna Ramsey Theory for Binary Trees and the Separation of Treechromatic Number from Pathchromatic Number 
We propose a Ramsey theory for binary trees and prove that for every rcoloring of "strong copies" of a small binary tree in a huge complete binary tree T, we can find a strong copy of a large complete binary tree in T with all small copies monochromatic. As an application, we construct a family of graphs which have treechromatic number at most 2 while the pathchromatic number is bounded. This construction resolves a problem posed by Seymour.

Kryptologia Subquadratic Greatest Common Divisor 
The binary algorithm is a variant of the Euclidean algorithm that performs well in practice. We present a quasilinear time recursive algorithm that computes the greatest common divisor of two integers by simulating a slightly modified version of the binary algorithm. The structure of the algorithm is very close to the one of the wellknown KnuthSchonhage fast gcd algorithm; although it does not improve on its O(M(n) log n) complexity, the description and the proof of correctness are significantly simpler. This leads to a simplification of the implementation and to better running times.

In this paper, we study the complexity of the chipfiring reachability problem. We show that for Eulerian digraphs, the reachability problem can be decided in polynomial time, even if the digraph has multiple edges. We also show a special case when the reachability problem can be decided in polynomial time for general digraphs: if the target distribution is recurrent restricted to each strongly connected component. Both of these algorithms are strongly polynomial. As a further positive result, we show that the chipfiring reachability problem is in coNP for general digraphs. We also show that the chipfiring halting problem is in coNP for Eulerian digraph

In this paper, we redesign and simplify an algorithm due to Remy et al. for the generation of rooted planar trees that satisfies a given partition of degrees. This new version is now optimal in terms of random bit complexity, up to a multiplicative constant. We then apply a natural process “simulateguessandproof” to analyze the height of a random Motzkin in function of its frequency of unary nodes. When the number of unary nodes dominates, we prove some unconventional height phenomenon.

Optymalizacja Kombinatoryczna Proper Orientations of Planar Bipartite Graphs 
An orientation of a graph G is proper if any two adjacent vertices have different indegrees. The proper orientation number χ (G) of a graph G is the minimum of the maximum indegree, taken over all proper orientations of G. In this paper, we show that a connected bipartite graph may be properly oriented even if we are only allowed to control the orientation of a specific set of edges, namely, the edges of a spanning tree and all the edges incident to one of its leaves. As a consequence of this result, we prove that 3connected planar bipartite graphs have proper orientation number at most 6. Additionally, we give a short proof that χ (G) ≤ 4, when G is a tree and this proof leads to a polynomialtime algorithm to proper orient trees within this bound.

An edge in G is called kvalid if it is contained in at least one kstrong induced forest. The kstrong induced arboricity f_{k}(G) is the smallest number m such that all kvalid edges of G can be covered with m kstrong induced forests in G.

An even factor of a graph is a spanning subgraph in which each vertex has a positive even degree. It has been shown that if a graph G has an even factor, it also has an even factor F such that E(F) >= 4/7 (E(G) + 1). 4/7 is the best possible ratio here, but we will try to strengthen this lower bound by taking the set of vertices of degree 2 into consideration.

It also follows that Java’s type checker can recognize any recursive language, which improves a result of Gil and Levy from 2016.

Optymalizacja Kombinatoryczna Necklaces, Convolutions, and X + Y, A new upper bound for the online square packing 
Necklaces, Convolutions, and X + Y The necklace alignment problem is to find the optimal rotation of the necklaces to best align the beads, when we have two necklaces given, each with n beads at arbitrary positions. Alignment is measured according to the ℓ_p norm of the vector of distances between pairs of beads from opposite necklaces in the best perfect matching. We show surprisingly different results for p = 1, p even, and p = ∞ and how these problems can be reduced to convolution problems which can be solve in subquadratic time. Besides, we say how the necklace alignment problems, and their corresponding convolution problems, are also intrinsically connected to problems on X + Y matrices. A new upper bound for the online square packing In online square packing problem we try to minimise the height of squares on a plane with width 1. Squares come one by one, they can’t overlap and once set, it’s position can’t be changed. A new upper bound (ratio between algorithm result and optimal packing) is found by applying modified version of previously used First Fit Shelf algorithm.

During the talk we will show a reduction from the Orthogonal Vectors problem to the Longest Common Increasing Subsequence problem which proves that the latter cannot be solved in strongly subquadratic time unless the SETH is false.
Simple modifications of the reduction prove that the problem for k sequences cannot be solved in O(n^{k}^{ε}) time, that the same lower bounds apply to the Longest Common Weakly Increasing Subsequence, and that the assumption of SETH can be replaced with a weaker statement about satisfiability of nondeterministic branching programs.

Local Antimagic Vertex Coloring of a Graph The edge labelling is called 'local antimagic', if for all vertices sum of labels for incident edges is different for every two adjacent vertices. Such sum induce a correct vertex colouring. The local antimagic chromatic number  X_la(G)  is the minimum number of colours used by any proper local antimagic labelling. In the paper authors present results on this parameter for trees, friendship, wheel and clique graphs. A short proof of Cayley's tree formula Cayley’s tree formula is a very elegant result in Graph Theory. The problem is to find the number of all possible trees on a given set of labeled vertices. For n = 2 and vertex set {v1, v2}, we have only one tree. For n = 3 and vertex set {v1, v2, v3}, we have 3 different trees. Similarly for n = 4, we have 16 trees. We give a short proof of Cayley’s tree formula for counting the number of different labeled trees on n vertices. Alok Bhushan Shukla, A short proof of Cayley's tree formula.

Podstawy Informatyki CANTOR POLYNOMIALS AND THE FUETERPOLYA THEOREM by MELVYN NATHANSON 
A packing polynomial is a polynomial that maps the set N^2 of lattice points with nonnegative coordinates bijectively onto N. Cantor constructed two quadratic packing polynomials, and Fueter and Polya proved analytically that the Cantor polynomials are the only quadratic packing polynomials.

Kryptologia Quantum Authentication with Key Recycling 
We show that a family of quantum authentication protocols introduced in FOCS 2002 can be used to construct a secure quantum channel and additionally recycle all of the secret key if the message is successfully authenticated, and recycle part of the key if tampering is detected. We give a full security proof that constructs the secure channel given only insecure noisy channels and a shared secret key. We also prove that the number of recycled key bits is optimal for this family of protocols, i.e., there exists an adversarial strategy to obtain all nonrecycled bits. Previous works recycled less key and only gave partial security proofs, since they did not consider all possible distinguishers (environments) that may be used to distinguish the real setting from the ideal secure quantum channel and secret key resource.

Optymalizacja Kombinatoryczna Planning for Fast Connectivity Updates 
Understanding how a single edge deletion can affect the connectivity of a graph amounts to finding the graph bridges. But when faced with d > 1 deletions, can we establish as easily how the connectivity changes? When planning for an emergency, we want to understand the structure of our network ahead of time, and respond swiftly when an emergency actually happens. We describe a linearspace representation of graphs which enables us to determine how a batch of edge updates can impact the graph. Given a set of d edge updates, in time O(d polylg n) we can obtain the number of connected components, the size of each component, and a fast oracle for answering connectivity queries in the updated graph. The initial representation is polynomialtime constructible.

Kryptologia Inclusive Block Chain Protocols 
Distributed cryptographic protocols such as Bitcoin and Ethereum use the block chain to synchronize a global log of events between nodes in their network. Previous research has shown that the mechanics of the block chain and block propagation are constrained: if blocks are created at a high rate compared to their propagation time in the network, many conflicting blocks are created and performance suffers greatly.

Optymalizacja Kombinatoryczna Generating Linear Extensions Fast 
One of the most important sets associated with a poset P is its set of linear extensions, E(P). In this paper, we present an algorithm to generate all of the linear extensions of a poset in constant amortized time; that is, in time O(e(P)), where e(P) = E(P). The fastest previously known algorithm for generating the linear extensions of a poset runs in time O(n*e(P)), where n is the number of elements of the poset. Our algorithm is the first constant amortized time algorithm for generating a ``naturally defined'' class of combinatorial objects for which the corresponding counting problem is #Pcomplete. Furthermore, we show that linear extensions can be generated in constant amortized time where each extension differs from its predecessor by one or two adjacent transpositions. The algorithm is practical and can be modified to efficiently count linear extensions, and to compute P(x < y), for all pairs x,y, in time O(n^2 + e(P)).

Informatyka Teoretyczna The tractability conjecture for finitely bounded homogeneous structures 
Finitely bounded homogeneous structures form a large class of infinite structures that can be seen as a generalisation of the class of all finite structures. Many results about finite structures, in particular in the context of the complexity of constraint satisfaction problems, can be generalised to this larger class. In this talk I will present a reformulation of a tractability conjecture for CSPs for this class in terms of polymorphisms, due to Barto and Pinsker (LICS 2016), and I will present a proof that the condition given in the tractability conjecture is decidable (under some Ramseytheoretic assumptions that might hold in general for all reducts of finitely bounded homogeneous structures).

Podstawy Informatyki Impossibility of Distributed Consensus with One Faulty Process by MICHAEL J. FISCHER, NANCY A. LYNCH AND MICHAEL S. PATERSO 
The consensus problem involves a asynchronous system of processes, some of which may be unreliable.The problem is for the reliable processes to agree on a binary value. In this paper, it is shown that every protocol for this problem has the possibility of nontermination, even with only one faulty process. By way of contrast, solutions are known for the synchronous case, the “Byzantine Generals” problem.

Kryptologia NonInteractive Verifiable Computing: Outsourcing Computation to Untrusted Workers 
The talk is based on the paper with the same title by Rosario Gennaro, Craig Gentry and Bryan Parno. Verifiable Computation enables a computationally weak client to "outsource" the computation of a function F on various inputs x_{1}, ..., x_{k} to one or more workers. The workers return the result of the function evaluation, e.g., y_{i} = F(x_{i}), as well as a proof that the computation of F was carried out correctly on the given value x_{i}. The verification of the proof should require substantially less computational effort than computing F(x_{i}) from scratch. We present a protocol that allows the worker to return a computationally sound, noninteractive proof that can be verified in O(m) time, where m is the bitlength of the output of F. The protocol requires a onetime preprocessing stage by the client which takes O(C) time, where C is the smallest Boolean circuit computing F. Our scheme also provides input and output privacy for the client, meaning that the workers do not learn any information about the values x_{i} or y_{i}.

Optymalizacja Kombinatoryczna Boolean dimension of posets 
A boolean dimension bdim(P) of a poset P=(X,<) is a smallest number k for which there is a set l1, l2, ..., lk of labelings X:>N and a boolean formula f(a1, ..., ak) such that the following is true: x < y in P iff f(a1, .., a_k) = 1 where ai =1 iff li(x) < li(x). Generally, it is simple to observe that bdim(P) <= dim(P). Also, it is known that there is a constant c such that bdim(n) <= c log(n) for any poset P of size n. The are few interesting open problems for boolean dimension: 1) Is boolean dimension of the boolean lattice of size n less that n? 2) Is there a constant c such that bdim(P) < c for any planar poset P?

Podstawy Informatyki Boltzmann samplers: random generation of combinatorial structures with an application to lambda calculus 
In their seminal paper, Duchon et al. proposed a surprisingly simple, generalpurpose framework of Boltzmann samplers meant for random generation of combinatorial structures. In this talk we revisit their method and discuss its elegant relation with analytic combinatorics as well as important practical implementation details. Finally, we discuss the application of Boltzmann samplers to the random generation of lambda terms used, e.g. in testing functional programming compilers.

Kryptologia Speeding up modular multiplication using Montgomery and Barrett reduction 
In the talk we present Montgomery and Barrett reductions that are used to speed up modular computations. In both reductions some precomputations are made allowing for replacing subsequent expensive divisions by some fixed modulus with much cheaper operations involving a suitable power of 2. This is particularly useful when many modular divisions by the same modulus are performed (for example in finite field arithmetic or in RSA).

Informatyka Teoretyczna Partial Visibility Representation Extension Problem 
We study a class of graphs that have a special geometric representation. By a bar visibility representation of an undirected graph we mean a function that associates with each vertex of a graph a horizontal line segment in such a way, that between segments representing two ends of an edge there is a vertical strip (of visibility). In case of directed graphs, we additionally assume that the visibility is from the bottom to the top, that is the line segment representing the source of the edge is below the one for the target. Graphs admitting such representations are well understood and can be recognized in linear time, both in the undirected and in the directed case. We work in a more subtle setting, where line segments are already associated with some vertices of a graph, and the question is if this can be extended to a bar visibility representation of an entire graph. We prove some results on complexity of this kind of problems. This is joint work with Steven Chaplick, Grzegorz Gutowski, Tomasz Krawczyk and Giuseppe Liotta.
