The isometries of the cut, metric and hypermetric cones
, 2003
"... We show that the symmetry groups of the cut cone Cutn and the metric cone Metn both consist of the isometries induced by the permutations on {1,..., n}; that is, Is(Cutn) = Is(Metn) ≃ Sym(n) for n ≥ 5. For n = 4 we have Is(Cut4) = Is(Met4) ≃ Sym(3) ×Sym(4). This result can be extended to cones c ..."

Duality in inhomogeneous random graphs, and the cut metric
, 2009
"... The classical random graph model G(n, λ/n) satisfies a ‘duality principle’, in that removing the giant component from a supercritical instance of the model leaves (essentially) a subcritical instance. Such principles have been proved for various models; they are useful since it is often much easier ..."

to study the subcritical model than to directly study small components in the supercritical model. Here we prove a duality principle of this type for a very general class of random graphs with independence between the edges, defined by convergence of the matrices of edge probabilities in the cut metric.
The cut metric, random graphs, and branching processes
, 2009
"... In this paper we study the component structure of random graphs with independence between the edges. Under mild assumptions, we determine whether there is a giant component, and find its asymptotic size when it exists. We assume that the sequence of matrices of edge probabilities converges to an app ..."

to an appropriate limit object (a kernel), but only in a very weak sense, namely in the cut metric. Our results thus generalize previous results on the phase transition in the already very general inhomogeneous random graph model introduced by the present authors in [4], as well as related results of Bollobás
Proof verification and hardness of approximation problems
 IN PROC. 33RD ANN. IEEE SYMP. ON FOUND. OF COMP. SCI
, 1992
"... We show that every language in NP has a probablistic verifier that checks membership proofs for it using logarithmic number of random bits and by examining a constant number of bits in the proof. If a string is in the language, then there exists a proof such that the verifier accepts with probabilit ..."

New spectral methods for ratio cut partition and clustering
 IEEE TRANS. ON COMPUTERAIDED DESIGN
, 1992
"... Partitioning of circuit netlists is important in many phases of VLSI design, ranging from layout to testing and hardware simulation. The ratio cut objective function [29] has received much attention since it naturally captures both mincut and equipartition, the two traditional goals of partitionin ..."

We also demonstrate that fast Lanczostype methods for the sparse symmetric eigenvalue problem are a robust basis
Computing geodesics and minimal surfaces via graph cuts
 in International Conference on Computer Vision
, 2003
"... Geodesic active contours and graph cuts are two standard image segmentation techniques. We introduce a new segmentation method combining some of their benefits. Our main intuition is that any cut on a graph embedded in some continuous space can be interpreted as a contour (in 2D) or a surface (in 3D ..."

D). We show how to build a grid graph and set its edge weights so that the cost of cuts is arbitrarily close to the length (area) of the corresponding contours (surfaces) for any anisotropic Riemannian metric. There are two interesting consequences of this technical result. First, graph cut
The Unique Games Conjecture, integrality gap for cut problems and embeddability of negative type metrics into `1
 In Proc. 46th IEEE Symp. on Foundations of Comp. Sci
, 2005
"... In this paper we disprove the following conjecture due to Goemans [17] and Linial [25] (also see [5, 27]): “Every negative type metric embeds into `1 with constant distortion. ” We show that for every δ> 0, and for large enough n, there is an npoint negative type metric which requires distortion ..."

Multiview Stereo via Volumetric Graphcuts and Occlusion Robust PhotoConsistency
, 2007
"... This paper presents a volumetric formulation for the multiview stereo problem which is amenable to a computationally tractable global optimisation using Graphcuts. Our approach is to seek the optimal partitioning of 3D space into two regions labelled as ‘object’ and ‘empty’ under a cost functional ..."
