SUMMARY:Subcubic Equivalences Between Matrix\, Path and Triangle Problems
DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Anamay Tengse\n\nAbstract: \nIn this talk\, we will di
scuss subcubic equivalence between the following problems:\n\n- Finding th
e distance product of matrices\n- Directed all pairs shortest paths\n- Und
irected all pairs shortest paths\n- Replacement paths\n- Second shortest s
imple path\n- Detecting a triangle with negative total weight\n\nAll the a
bove mentioned problems have cubic time algorithm\, but neither a cubic lo
wer bound nor a subcubic time algorithm is known for any of them. The equi
valence shows that either all or none of them have a subcubic algorithm.\n
\nThese equivalences appear as a part of the 2010 FOCS paper by Virginia W
illiams and Ryan Williams.\n\nWe will begin by formalizing the notion of s
ubcubic equivalence and the distance product of matrices.\n\nNote: These a
re the equivalences that were not covered during the qualifiers. But we wi
ll be covering the required basics again.\n\n\n \n
