A Simple Algorithm for Homeomorphic Surface Reconstruction
 International Journal of Computational Geometry and Applications
, 2000
"... The problem of computing a piecewise linear approximation to a surface from a set of sample points is important in solid modeling, computer graphics and computer vision. A recent algorithm [1] using the Voronoi diagram of the sample points gave a guarantee on the distance of the output surface from ..."

A Simple, Fast, and Accurate Algorithm to Estimate Large Phylogenies by Maximum Likelihood
, 2003
"... The increase in the number of large data sets and the complexity of current probabilistic sequence evolution models necessitates fast and reliable phylogeny reconstruction methods. We describe a new approach, based on the maximumlikelihood principle, which clearly satisfies these requirements. The ..."

. The core of this method is a simple hillclimbing algorithm that adjusts tree topology and branch lengths simultaneously. This algorithm starts from an initial tree built by a fast distancebased method and modifies this tree to improve its likelihood at each iteration. Due to this simultaneous adjustment
A blocksorting lossless data compression algorithm
, 1994
"... We describe a blocksorting, lossless data compression algorithm, and our implementation of that algorithm. We compare the performance of our implementation with widely available data compressors running on the same hardware. The algorithm works by applying a reversible transformation to a block o ..."

of input text. The transformation does not itself compress the data, but reorders it to make it easy to compress with simple algorithms such as movetofront coding. Our algorithm achieves speed comparable to algorithms based on the techniques of Lempel and Ziv, but obtains compression close to the best
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 ..."

simple algorithm (“the threshold algorithm”, or TA) that is optimal in a much stronger sense than FA. We show that TA is essentially optimal, not just for some monotone aggregation functions, but for all of them, and not just in a highprobability worstcase sense, but over every database. Unlike FA
A simple distributed autonomous power control algorithm and its convergence
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON VEHICULAR TECHNOLOGY
, 1993
"... For wireless cellular communication systems, one seeks a simple effective means of power control of signals associated with randomly dispersed users that are reusing a single channel in different cells. By effecting the lowest interference environment, in meeting a required minimum signaltointerf ..."

The weighted majority algorithm
, 1992
"... We study the construction of prediction algorithms in a situation in which a learner faces a sequence of trials, with a prediction to be made in each, and the goal of the learner is to make few mistakes. We are interested in the case that the learner has reason to believe that one of some pool of kn ..."

of known algorithms will perform well, but the learner does not know which one. A simple and effective method, based on weighted voting, is introduced for constructing a compound algorithm in such a circumstance. We call this method the Weighted Majority Algorithm. We show that this algorithm is robust
On Spectral Clustering: Analysis and an algorithm
 ADVANCES IN NEURAL INFORMATION PROCESSING SYSTEMS

"... Despite many empirical successes of spectral clustering methods  algorithms that cluster points using eigenvectors of matrices derived from the distances between the points  there are several unresolved issues. First, there is a wide variety of algorithms that use the eigenvectors in slightly ..."

In this paper, we present a simple spectral clustering algorithm that can be implemented using a few lines of Matlab. Using tools from matrix perturbation theory, we analyze
