Optimal Aggregation Algorithms for Middleware
 IN PODS
, 2001
"... Assume that each object in a database has m grades, or scores, one for each of m attributes. For example, an object can have a color grade, that tells how red it is, and a shape grade, that tells how round it is. For each attribute, there is a sorted list, which lists each object and its grade under ..."

must access every object in the database, to find its grade under each attribute. Fagin has given an algorithm (“Fagin’s Algorithm”, or FA) that is much more efficient. For some monotone aggregation functions, FA is optimal with high probability in the worst case. We analyze an elegant and remarkably
Improved Approximation Algorithms for Maximum Cut and Satisfiability Problems Using Semidefinite Programming
 Journal of the ACM
, 1995
"... We present randomized approximation algorithms for the maximum cut (MAX CUT) and maximum 2satisfiability (MAX 2SAT) problems that always deliver solutions of expected value at least .87856 times the optimal value. These algorithms use a simple and elegant technique that randomly rounds the solution ..."

Cluster Ensembles  A Knowledge Reuse Framework for Combining Multiple Partitions
 Journal of Machine Learning Research
, 2002
"... This paper introduces the problem of combining multiple partitionings of a set of objects into a single consolidated clustering without accessing the features or algorithms that determined these partitionings. We first identify several application scenarios for the resultant 'knowledge reuse&ap ..."

Similarity estimation techniques from rounding algorithms
 In Proc. of 34th STOC
, 2002
"... A locality sensitive hashing scheme is a distribution on a family F of hash functions operating on a collection of objects, such that for two objects x, y, Prh∈F[h(x) = h(y)] = sim(x,y), where sim(x,y) ∈ [0, 1] is some similarity function defined on the collection of objects. Such a scheme leads ..."

to a compact representation of objects so that similarity of objects can be estimated from their compact sketches, and also leads to efficient algorithms for approximate nearest neighbor search and clustering. Minwise independent permutations provide an elegant construction of such a locality
MetaCost: A General Method for Making Classifiers CostSensitive
 In Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
, 1999
"... Research in machine learning, statistics and related fields has produced a wide variety of algorithms for classification. However, most of these algorithms assume that all errors have the same cost, which is seldom the case in KDD prob lems. Individually making each classification learner costsensi ..."

, 1999
"... Ant algorithms are multiagent systems in which the behavior of each single agent, called artificial ant or ant for short in the following, is inspired by the behavior of real ants. Ant algorithms are one of the most successful examples of swarm intelligent systems [3], and have been applied to many ..."

A comparative study of energy minimization methods for Markov random fields
 IN ECCV
, 2006
"... One of the most exciting advances in early vision has been the development of efficient energy minimization algorithms. Many early vision tasks require labeling each pixel with some quantity such as depth or texture. While many such problems can be elegantly expressed in the language of Markov Ran ..."

Segmentation using eigenvectors: A unifying view
 In ICCV
, 1999
"... Automatic grouping and segmentation of images remains a challenging problem in computer vision. Recently, a number of authors have demonstrated good performance on this task using methods that are based on eigenvectors of the a nity matrix. These approaches are extremely attractive in that they are ..."

Nevertheless, the use of eigendecompositions in the context of segmentation is far from well understood. In this paper we give a unied treatment of these algorithms, and show the close connections between them while
The even more irresistible SROIQ
 In KR
, 2006
"... We describe an extension of the description logic underlying OWLDL, SHOIN, with a number of expressive means that we believe will make it more useful in practise. Roughly speaking, we extend SHOIN with all expressive means that were suggested to us by ontology developers as useful additions to OWL ..."

rather elegant tableaubased reasoning algorithm: it combines the use of automata to keep track of universal value restrictions with the techniques developed for SHOIQ. We believe that SROIQ could serve as a logical basis for possible future extensions of OWLDL.
