About the Event

We present new methods for solving several classical symmetry breaking tasks in distributed networks, such as finding maximal independent sets, maximal matchings, and vertex-colorings. This is joint work with Leonid Barenboim, Michael Elkin, and Johannes Schneider. An extended abstract appeared in FOCS 2012. PDF available at
