Performance of Balanced Fairness in Computer Clusters: A Recursive Approach

  • Bonald T.
  • Comte C.
  • Mathieu F.

Understanding the performance of computer clusters is crucial for proper dimensioning. One of the main challenge is to take into account the complex interactions between computers that process jobs in parallel. In particular, a job can generally not be processed by any computer of the cluster due to various constraints ...

Limited Sharing Multi-Party Computation for Massive matrix Operations

In this paper, we introduce limited-sharing multi party computation; in which there is a network of workers (processors) and also a set of input nodes that have access to some massive matrices as private inputs. These input nodes aim to offload computation of a polynomial function of the matrices to ...

Multi-version Coding with Side Information

  • Cadambe V.
  • Llorca J.
  • Tulino A.

THIS PAPER IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE STUDENT PAPER AWARD. In applications of storage systems to modern key-value stores, the stored data is highly dynamic due to frequent updates from the system write clients. The multi-version coding problem has been formulated to study the cost of storing dynamic data in asynchronous ...

Cost of Path Loss and Local Cooperation in Capacity Scaling of Extended Wireless Networks

  • Du J.
  • Muriel Medard
  • Shlomo Shamai (Shitz)

Given a large wireless network consisting of randomly deployed nodes, where each of the nodes wants to transmit to a random destination node within the network at some equal rate, how fast can the sum rate grow as the number of nodes scales up at fixed density? This question is ...

  • Benjamin M. Zaidel
  • Shental O.
  • Shlomo Shamai (Shitz)

Understanding fundamental limits of the various technologies suggested for future 5G and beyond cellular systems is crucial for developing efficient state-of-the-art designs. A leading technology of major interest is non-orthogonal multiple-access (NOMA). In this paper, we derive an explicit rigorous closed-form analytical expression for the optimum spectral efficiency in the ...

Limited-Sharing Multi-Party Computation for Massive Matrix Operations

  • Maddah-Ali M.
  • Nodehi H.

In this paper, we introduce limited-sharing multiparty computation; in which there is a network of workers (processors) and a set of sources, each having access to a massive matrix as a private input. These sources aim to offload the task of computing a polynomial function of the matrices to the ...

A Compressed Sensing Approach for Distribution Matching

In this work, we formulate the fixed-length distribution matching as a Bayesian inference problem. Our proposed solution is inspired from the compressed sensing paradigm and the sparse superposition (SS) codes. First, we introduce sparsity in the binary source via position modulation (PM). We then present a simple and exact matcher ...

Compressive Phase Retrieval of Structured Signals

Compressive phase retrieval is the problem of recovering a structured vector $bf{x} in mathds{C}^n$ from its phaseless linear measurements. A compression algorithm aims to represent structured signals with as few bits as possible. As a result of extensive research devoted to compression algorithms, in many signal classes, compression algorithms are ...

Genome-Wide Association Studies: Information Theoretic Limits of Reliable Learning

In the problems of Genome-Wide Association Study (GWAS), the objective is to associate subsequences of individual's genomes to the observable characteristics called phenotypes. The genome containing the biological information of an individual can be represented by a sequence of length <strong>G</strong>. Many observable characteristics of the individuals can be related ...

Consider massive matrix multiplication, a problem that underlies many data analytic applications, in a large-scale distributed system comprising a group of workers. We target the stragglers' delay performance bottleneck, which is due to the unpredictable latency in waiting for slowest nodes (or stragglers) to finish their tasks. We propose a ...
