Unique Sink Orientation

- A sink is a vertex without outgoing edges
- A unique sink orientation (USO) of a cube is an

orientation where - every face has a unique sink

The Problem

- Find the sink in a USO
- The USO is given implicitly it can be accessed

through vertex evaluations - Vertex evaluation returns orientations of all

incident edges

- How many vertices have to be evaluated in a USO

of an n-cube, until we have evaluated the sink? - t(n) worst-case deterministic
- t?(n) worst-case expected for randomized

in d-space. - Define orientation on the cube CP For x?Q ? P,
- Q ? QUx iff x?ß(Q),
- where ß(Q) is the smallest ball with Q on

boundary. - This is a USO
- S is the sink iff ß(S) is the smallest ball

- s?(n) (v2)n(1o(1)) Aldous 84
- s?(n) is the expected number of evaluations

the fastest randomized algorithm takes while

finding the sink in a cube with an orientation

given by a function on the vertices (? acyclic),

which has a unique global sink (no restriction on

the faces).

- t?(n) ¾(2n-1 1)

For arbitrary orientations

is best possible

- SOMETHING BETTER
- FOR USOs?

Out-map

- Out-map sf of an orientation f of Cn is defined

by - v ? set of labels of outgoing edges incident

with v - v is a sink iff sf(v) ?

Are out-maps of USOs bijections

- Lemma Reversing the orientation of the edges of

a fixed label does not affect the unique sink

property.

- Lemma Out-maps of USOs are bijections between

the vertex set of Cn and 2n. - Proof
- Suppose u and v have the same out-map value.
- Reverse all edges of label from s(u)s(v).
- This makes both u and v a sink, a

contradiction.

- Lemma Out-maps of USOs are bijections between

the vertex set of Cn and 2n. - Inherited orientation fB
- of USO f relative to B ? A.
- fB defined on CA , where A A \ B

Inherited Orientation

of f on CA relative to B

A.

UI

The out-map on the sinks of B-labeled faces of

CA gives a mapping s 2A ? 2A, A A \ B.

- s is well-defined
- s is a USO

Product Algorithm

- Choose B with Bk
- Perform a search in the (n-k)-cube with the

inherited orientation fB takes t(n-k)

hyper-vertex evaluation - Each hyper-vertex evaluation is a search for

the sink of the corresponding k-cube takes t(k)

vertex evaluations - t(n) t(k) t(n-k)
- t?(n) t?(k) t?(n-k)

Consequences

- t(3) 5 ? t(n) (v5)n 1.71n

Is the Fibonacci Seesaw optimal?

- NO!!
- The SevenStepsToHeaven Algorithm solves the

4-dimensional problem using at most 7

evaluations. - That is optimal t(4)7
- Combining it with the Fibonacci Seesaw gives

t(n)O(1.61n)o(Fn)

Tool 2 Local change

Important

- Tool 1 and Tool 2 preserve acyclicity

Strategy against Al

- We maintain

- Set W of requested vertices

- Partial outmap ? W ? 2A

- Subset L of labels

- Orientation f on CL

- Choose a translate C of CL which is empty, i.e.

there are no requests in it so far (2n-L

- (n-log n)-dimensional problem on C.

Killing RandomEdge

- Is harder. One needs
- Repeated application of Tool 1 and 2
- Lots of copies of the Klee-Minty cube

A large class

- Let ? be the uniform orientation
- M be a matching of the hypercube
- Flip the edges of the matching
- By Tool 2 this is a USO
- There are a lot of them
- For this class there is an algorithm finding the

sink in FIVE(!!!) steps.

Outlook for Acyclic USOs

- Exploit acyclicity in order to improve the

existing best deterministic algorithm - Analyze RandomEdge on AUSO it could take ec³?n

time Matousek-Szabo, 04

(it is even worse for general USOs Morris) No

upper bound is known for AUSO. - Is the class of orientation constructed by Tool

1 and 2 realizable as an LP?

Outlook for General USOs

- Provide a faster randomized algorithm, which is

conceptually different from the Product Algorithm - Prove any lower bound for the expected running

time of a randomized algorithm - Behaviour of RandomFacet is unresolved (on

acyclic USOs the expected running time is eT(vn)

Matousek, Gärtner)
