Massive Graphs: Algorithms, Techniques and Challenges


Recent advances in information and communication technologies have shown dramatic improvement and unparalleled development of our networked world. Almost all humans are interconnected and beyond that, all objects of our environment are becoming networked, forming huge global system. Massive graphs have been changing the traditional notion of efficient algorithms (in terms of processing time) from polynomial to sub-linear solutions by considering only a portion of the network. In this talk, I will overview algorithms, techniques and challenges for analyses of massive graphs by considering those methods and tools that allow massive graphs problems to be tackled not only on expensive supercomputing infrastructure, but also on more available, off-the shelf equipment.
