Abstract
We study the problem of allocating a set of indivisible goods among agents<br>with 2-value additive valuations. Our goal is to find an allocation with<br>maximum Nash social welfare, i.e., the geometric mean of the valuations of the<br>agents. We give a polynomial-time algorithm to find a Nash social welfare<br>maximizing allocation when the valuation functions are integrally 2-valued,<br>i.e., each agent has a value either $1$ or $p$ for each good, for some positive<br>integer $p$. We then extend our algorithm to find a better approximation factor<br>for general 2-value instances.<br>

Abstract
The approximate uniform sampling of graphs with a given degree sequence is a<br>well-known, extensively studied problem in theoretical computer science and has<br>significant applications, e.g., in the analysis of social networks. In this<br>work we study an extension of the problem, where degree intervals are specified<br>rather than a single degree sequence. We are interested in sampling and<br>counting graphs whose degree sequences satisfy the degree interval constraints.<br>A natural scenario where this problem arises is in hypothesis testing on social<br>networks that are only partially observed.<br> In this work, we provide the first fully polynomial almost uniform sampler<br>(FPAUS) as well as the first fully polynomial randomized approximation scheme<br>(FPRAS) for sampling and counting, respectively, graphs with near-regular<br>degree intervals, in which every node $i$ has a degree from an interval not too<br>far away from a given $d \in \N$. In order to design our FPAUS, we rely on<br>various state-of-the-art tools from Markov chain theory and combinatorics. In<br>particular, we provide the first non-trivial algorithmic application of a<br>breakthrough result of Liebenau and Wormald (2017) regarding an asymptotic<br>formula for the number of graphs with a given near-regular degree sequence.<br>Furthermore, we also make use of the recent breakthrough of Anari et al. (2019)<br>on sampling a base of a matroid under a strongly log-concave probability<br>distribution.<br> As a more direct approach, we also study a natural Markov chain recently<br>introduced by Rechner, Strowick and M\"uller-Hannemann (2018), based on three<br>simple local operations: Switches, hinge flips, and additions/deletions of a<br>single edge. We obtain the first theoretical results for this Markov chain by<br>showing it is rapidly mixing for the case of near-regular degree intervals of<br>size at most one.<br>

Abstract
In this work we refine the analysis of the distributed Laplacian solver<br>recently established by Forster, Goranci, Liu, Peng, Sun, and Ye (FOCS '21),<br>via the Ghaffari-Haeupler framework (SODA '16) of low-congestion shortcuts.<br>Specifically, if $\epsilon > 0$ represents the error of the solver, we derive<br>two main results. First, for any $n$-node graph $G$ with hop-diameter $D$ and<br>treewidth bounded by $k$, we show the existence of a Laplacian solver with<br>round complexity $O(n^{o(1)}kD \log(1/\epsilon))$ in the CONGEST model. For<br>graphs with bounded treewidth this circumvents the notorious $\Omega(\sqrt{n})$<br>lower bound for "global" problems in general graphs. Moreover, following a<br>recent line of work in distributed algorithms, we consider a hybrid<br>communication model which enhances CONGEST with very limited global power in<br>the form of the recently introduced node-capacitated clique. In this model, we<br>show the existence of a Laplacian solver with round complexity $O(n^{o(1)}<br>\log(1/\epsilon))$. The unifying thread of these results is an application of<br>accelerated distributed algorithms for a congested variant of the standard<br>part-wise aggregation problem that we introduce.

Abstract
The Subgraph Isomorphism problem is of considerable importance in computer<br>science. We examine the problem when the pattern graph H is of bounded<br>treewidth, as occurs in a variety of applications. This problem has a<br>well-known algorithm via color-coding that runs in time $O(n^{tw(H)+1})$ [Alon,<br>Yuster, Zwick'95], where $n$ is the number of vertices of the host graph $G$.<br>While there are pattern graphs known for which Subgraph Isomorphism can be<br>solved in an improved running time of $O(n^{tw(H)+1-\varepsilon})$ or even<br>faster (e.g. for $k$-cliques), it is not known whether such improvements are<br>possible for all patterns. The only known lower bound rules out time<br>$n^{o(tw(H) / \log(tw(H)))}$ for any class of patterns of unbounded treewidth<br>assuming the Exponential Time Hypothesis [Marx'07].<br> In this paper, we demonstrate the existence of maximally hard pattern graphs<br>$H$ that require time $n^{tw(H)+1-o(1)}$. Specifically, under the Strong<br>Exponential Time Hypothesis (SETH), a standard assumption from fine-grained<br>complexity theory, we prove the following asymptotic statement for large<br>treewidth $t$: For any $\varepsilon > 0$ there exists $t \ge 3$ and a pattern<br>graph $H$ of treewidth $t$ such that Subgraph Isomorphism on pattern $H$ has no<br>algorithm running in time $O(n^{t+1-\varepsilon})$.<br> Under the more recent 3-uniform Hyperclique hypothesis, we even obtain tight<br>lower bounds for each specific treewidth $t \ge 3$: For any $t \ge 3$ there<br>exists a pattern graph $H$ of treewidth $t$ such that for any $\varepsilon>0$<br>Subgraph Isomorphism on pattern $H$ has no algorithm running in time<br>$O(n^{t+1-\varepsilon})$.<br> In addition to these main results, we explore (1) colored and uncolored<br>problem variants (and why they are equivalent for most cases), (2) Subgraph<br>Isomorphism for $tw < 3$, (3) Subgraph Isomorphism parameterized by pathwidth,<br>and (4) a weighted problem variant.<br>

Abstract
Computing the similarity of two point sets is a ubiquitous task in medical<br>imaging, geometric shape comparison, trajectory analysis, and many more<br>settings. Arguably the most basic distance measure for this task is the<br>Hausdorff distance, which assigns to each point from one set the closest point<br>in the other set and then evaluates the maximum distance of any assigned pair.<br>A drawback is that this distance measure is not translational invariant, that<br>is, comparing two objects just according to their shape while disregarding<br>their position in space is impossible.<br> Fortunately, there is a canonical translational invariant version, the<br>Hausdorff distance under translation, which minimizes the Hausdorff distance<br>over all translations of one of the point sets. For point sets of size $n$ and<br>$m$, the Hausdorff distance under translation can be computed in time $\tilde<br>O(nm)$ for the $L_1$ and $L_\infty$ norm [Chew, Kedem SWAT'92] and $\tilde O(nm<br>(n+m))$ for the $L_2$ norm [Huttenlocher, Kedem, Sharir DCG'93].<br> As these bounds have not been improved for over 25 years, in this paper we<br>approach the Hausdorff distance under translation from the perspective of<br>fine-grained complexity theory. We show (i) a matching lower bound of<br>$(nm)^{1-o(1)}$ for $L_1$ and $L_\infty$ assuming the Orthogonal Vectors<br>Hypothesis and (ii) a matching lower bound of $n^{2-o(1)}$ for $L_2$ in the<br>imbalanced case of $m = O(1)$ assuming the 3SUM Hypothesis.<br>

Abstract
We consider the problem of computing the Boolean convolution (with<br>wraparound) of $n$~vectors of dimension $m$, or, equivalently, the problem of<br>computing the sumset $A_1+A_2+\ldots+A_n$ for $A_1,\ldots,A_n \subseteq<br>\mathbb{Z}_m$.

Our problem formalizes a natural generalization,<br>namely combining solutions of $n$ subproblems subject to a modular constraint.<br>This simultaneously generalises Modular Subset Sum and Boolean Convolution<br>(Sumset Computation). Although nearly optimal algorithms are known for special<br>cases of this problem, not even tiny improvements are known for the general<br>case.<br> We almost resolve the computational complexity of this problem, shaving<br>essentially a factor of $n$ from the running time of previous algorithms.<br>Specifically, we present a \emph{deterministic} algorithm running in<br>\emph{almost} linear time with respect to the input plus output size $k$.

Abstract
We study the $c$-approximate near neighbor problem under the continuous<br>Fr\'echet distance: Given a set of $n$ polygonal curves with $m$ vertices, a<br>radius $\delta > 0$, and a parameter $k \leq m$, we want to preprocess the<br>curves into a data structure that, given a query curve $q$ with $k$ vertices,<br>either returns an input curve with Fr\'echet distance at most $c\cdot \delta$<br>to $q$, or returns that there exists no input curve with Fr\'echet distance at<br>most $\delta$ to $q$. We focus on the case where the input and the queries are<br>one-dimensional polygonal curves -- also called time series -- and we give a<br>comprehensive analysis for this case. We obtain new upper bounds that provide<br>different tradeoffs between approximation factor, preprocessing time, and query<br>time.<br> Our data structures improve upon the state of the art in several ways. We<br>show that for any $0 < \varepsilon \leq 1$ an approximation factor of<br>$(1+\varepsilon)$ can be achieved within the same asymptotic time bounds as the<br>previously best result for $(2+\varepsilon)$. Moreover, we show that an<br>approximation factor of $(2+\varepsilon)$ can be obtained by using<br>preprocessing time and space $O(nm)$, which is linear in the input size, and<br>query time in $O(\frac{1}{\varepsilon})^{k+2}$, where the previously best<br>result used preprocessing time in $n \cdot O(\frac{m}{\varepsilon k})^k$ and<br>query time in $O(1)^k$. We complement our upper bounds with matching<br>conditional lower bounds based on the Orthogonal Vectors Hypothesis.<br>Interestingly, some of our lower bounds already hold for any super-constant<br>value of $k$. This is achieved by proving hardness of a one-sided sparse<br>version of the Orthogonal Vectors problem as an intermediate problem, which we<br>believe to be of independent interest.<br>

We focus on the case where the input and the queries are<br>one-dimensional polygonal curves -- also called time series -- and we give a<br>comprehensive analysis for this case. We obtain new upper bounds that provide<br>different tradeoffs between approximation factor, preprocessing time, and query<br>time.<br> Our data structures improve upon the state of the art in several ways. We<br>show that for any $0 < \varepsilon \leq 1$ an approximation factor of<br>$(1+\varepsilon)$ can be achieved within the same asymptotic time bounds as the<br>previously best result for $(2+\varepsilon)$. Moreover, we show that an<br>approximation factor of $(2+\varepsilon)$ can be obtained by using<br>preprocessing time and space $O(nm)$, which is linear in the input size, and<br>query time in $O(\frac{1}{\varepsilon})^{k+2}$, where the previously best<br>result used preprocessing time in $n \cdot O(\frac{m}{\varepsilon k})^k$ and<br>query time in $O(1)^k$. We complement our upper bounds with matching<br>conditional lower bounds based on the Orthogonal Vectors Hypothesis.<br>Interestingly, some of our lower bounds already hold for any super-constant<br>value of $k$. This is achieved by proving hardness of a one-sided sparse<br>version of the Orthogonal Vectors problem as an intermediate problem, which we<br>believe to be of independent interest.<br> %K Computer Science, Computational Geometry, cs.CG,Computer Science, Computational Complexity, cs.CC,Computer Science, Data Structures and Algorithms, cs.DS

Abstract
Computing the dominant Fourier coefficients of a vector is a common task in<br>many fields, such as signal processing, learning theory, and computational<br>complexity. In the Sparse Fast Fourier Transform (Sparse FFT) problem, one is<br>given oracle access to a $d$-dimensional vector $x$ of size $N$, and is asked<br>to compute the best $k$-term approximation of its Discrete Fourier Transform,<br>quickly and using few samples of the input vector $x$. While the sample<br>complexity of this problem is quite well understood, all previous approaches<br>either suffer from an exponential dependence of runtime on the dimension $d$ or<br>can only tolerate a trivial amount of noise. This is in sharp contrast with the<br>classical FFT algorithm of Cooley and Tukey, which is stable and completely<br>insensitive to the dimension of the input vector: its runtime is $O(N\log N)$<br>in any dimension $d$.<br> In this work, we introduce a new high-dimensional Sparse FFT toolkit and use<br>it to obtain new algorithms, both on the exact, as well as in the case of<br>bounded $\ell_2$ noise. This toolkit includes i) a new strategy for exploring a<br>pruned FFT computation tree that reduces the cost of filtering, ii) new<br>structural properties of adaptive aliasing filters recently introduced by<br>Kapralov, Velingker and Zandieh'SODA'19, and iii) a novel lazy estimation<br>argument, suited to reducing the cost of estimation in FFT tree-traversal<br>approaches. Our robust algorithm can be viewed as a highly optimized sparse,<br>stable extension of the Cooley-Tukey FFT algorithm.<br> Finally, we explain the barriers we have faced by proving a conditional<br>quadratic lower bound on the running time of the well-studied non-equispaced<br>Fourier transform problem. This resolves a natural and frequently asked<br>question in computational Fourier transforms. Lastly, we provide a preliminary<br>experimental evaluation comparing the runtime of our algorithm to FFTW and SFFT<br>2.0.<br>

Abstract
Computing the convolution $A\star B$ of two length-$n$ integer vectors $A,B$<br>is a core problem in several disciplines. It frequently comes up in algorithms<br>for Knapsack, $k$-SUM, All-Pairs Shortest Paths, and string pattern matching<br>problems. For these applications it typically suffices to compute convolutions<br>of nonnegative vectors. This problem can be classically solved in time $O(n\log<br>n)$ using the Fast Fourier Transform.<br> However, often the involved vectors are sparse and hence one could hope for<br>output-sensitive algorithms to compute nonnegative convolutions. This question<br>was raised by Muthukrishnan and solved by Cole and Hariharan (STOC '02) by a<br>randomized algorithm running in near-linear time in the (unknown) output-size<br>$t$. Chan and Lewenstein (STOC '15) presented a deterministic algorithm with a<br>$2^{O(\sqrt{\log t\cdot\log\log n})}$ overhead in running time and the<br>additional assumption that a small superset of the output is given; this<br>assumption was later removed by Bringmann and Nakos (ICALP '21).<br> In this paper we present the first deterministic near-linear-time algorithm<br>for computing sparse nonnegative convolutions. This immediately gives improved<br>deterministic algorithms for the state-of-the-art of output-sensitive Subset<br>Sum, block-mass pattern matching, $N$-fold Boolean convolution, and others,<br>matching up to log-factors the fastest known randomized algorithms for these<br>problems. Our algorithm is a blend of algebraic and combinatorial ideas and<br>techniques.<br> Additionally, we provide two fast Las Vegas algorithms for computing sparse<br>nonnegative convolutions.

Abstract
In the classical Subset Sum problem we are given a set $X$ and a target $t$,<br>and the task is to decide whether there exists a subset of $X$ which sums to<br>$t$. A recent line of research has resulted in $\tilde{O}(t)$-time algorithms,<br>which are (near-)optimal under popular complexity-theoretic assumptions. On the<br>other hand, the standard dynamic programming algorithm runs in time $O(n \cdot<br>|\mathcal{S}(X,t)|)$, where $\mathcal{S}(X,t)$ is the set of all subset sums of<br>$X$ that are smaller than $t$. Furthermore, all known pseudopolynomial<br>algorithms actually solve a stronger task, since they actually compute the<br>whole set $\mathcal{S}(X,t)$.<br> As the aforementioned two running times are incomparable, in this paper we<br>ask whether one can achieve the best of both worlds: running time<br>$\tilde{O}(|\mathcal{S}(X,t)|)$. In particular, we ask whether<br>$\mathcal{S}(X,t)$ can be computed in near-linear time in the output-size.<br>Using a diverse toolkit containing techniques such as color coding, sparse<br>recovery, and sumset estimates, we make considerable progress towards this<br>question and design an algorithm running in time<br>$\tilde{O}(|\mathcal{S}(X,t)|^{4/3})$.<br> Central to our approach is the study of top-$k$-convolution, a natural<br>problem of independent interest: given sparse polynomials with non-negative<br>coefficients, compute the lowest $k$ non-zero monomials of their product. We<br>design an algorithm running in time $\tilde{O}(k^{4/3})$, by a combination of<br>sparse convolution and sumset estimates considered in Additive Combinatorics.<br>Moreover, we provide evidence that going beyond some of the barriers we have<br>faced requires either an algorithmic breakthrough or possibly new techniques<br>from Additive Combinatorics on how to pass from information on restricted<br>sumsets to information on unrestricted sumsets.<br>

Abstract
We initiate the study of fine-grained completeness theorems for exact and<br>approximate optimization in the polynomial-time regime. Inspired by the first<br>completeness results for decision problems in P (Gao, Impagliazzo, Kolokolova,<br>Williams, TALG 2019) as well as the classic class MaxSNP and<br>MaxSNP-completeness for NP optimization problems (Papadimitriou, Yannakakis,<br>JCSS 1991), we define polynomial-time analogues MaxSP and MinSP, which contain<br>a number of natural optimization problems in P, including Maximum Inner<br>Product, general forms of nearest neighbor search and optimization variants of<br>the $k$-XOR problem. Specifically, we define MaxSP as the class of problems<br>definable as $\max_{x_1,\dots,x_k} \#\{ (y_1,\dots,y_\ell) :<br>\phi(x_1,\dots,x_k, y_1,\dots,y_\ell) \}$, where $\phi$ is a quantifier-free<br>first-order property over a given relational structure (with MinSP defined<br>analogously). On $m$-sized structures, we can solve each such problem in time<br>$O(m^{k+\ell-1})$. Our results are:<br> - We determine (a sparse variant of) the Maximum/Minimum Inner Product<br>problem as complete under *deterministic* fine-grained reductions: A strongly<br>subquadratic algorithm for Maximum/Minimum Inner Product would beat the<br>baseline running time of $O(m^{k+\ell-1})$ for *all* problems in MaxSP/MinSP by<br>a polynomial factor.<br> - This completeness transfers to approximation: Maximum/Minimum Inner Product<br>is also complete in the sense that a strongly subquadratic $c$-approximation<br>would give a $(c+\varepsilon)$-approximation for all MaxSP/MinSP problems in<br>time $O(m^{k+\ell-1-\delta})$, where $\varepsilon > 0$ can be chosen<br>arbitrarily small. Combining our completeness with~(Chen, Williams, SODA 2019),<br>we obtain the perhaps surprising consequence that refuting the OV Hypothesis is<br>*equivalent* to giving a $O(1)$-approximation for all MinSP problems in<br>faster-than-$O(m^{k+\ell-1})$ time.<br>

Abstract
Computing the convolution $A\star B$ of two length-$n$ vectors $A,B$ is an<br>ubiquitous computational primitive.

These<br>applications often come in the form of nonnegative convolution, where the<br>entries of $A,B$ are nonnegative integers. The classical algorithm to compute<br>$A\star B$ uses the Fast Fourier Transform and runs in time $O(n\log n)$.<br> However, often $A$ and $B$ satisfy sparsity conditions, and hence one could<br>hope for significant improvements. The ideal goal is an $O(k\log k)$-time<br>algorithm, where $k$ is the number of non-zero elements in the output, i.e.,<br>the size of the support of $A\star B$. This problem is referred to as sparse<br>nonnegative convolution, and has received considerable attention in the<br>literature; the fastest algorithms to date run in time $O(k\log^2 n)$.<br> The main result of this paper is the first $O(k\log k)$-time algorithm for<br>sparse nonnegative convolution.

Abstract
We consider the classic problem of computing the Longest Common Subsequence<br>(LCS) of two strings of length $n$. While a simple quadratic algorithm has been<br>known for the problem for more than 40 years, no faster algorithm has been<br>found despite an extensive effort. The lack of progress on the problem has<br>recently been explained by Abboud, Backurs, and Vassilevska Williams [FOCS'15]<br>and Bringmann and K\"unnemann [FOCS'15] who proved that there is no<br>subquadratic algorithm unless the Strong Exponential Time Hypothesis fails.<br>This has led the community to look for subquadratic approximation algorithms<br>for the problem.<br> Yet, unlike the edit distance problem for which a constant-factor<br>approximation in almost-linear time is known, very little progress has been<br>made on LCS, making it a notoriously difficult problem also in the realm of<br>approximation. For the general setting, only a naive<br>$O(n^{\varepsilon/2})$-approximation algorithm with running time<br>$\tilde{O}(n^{2-\varepsilon})$ has been known, for any constant $0 <<br>\varepsilon \le 1$. Recently, a breakthrough result by Hajiaghayi, Seddighin,<br>Seddighin, and Sun [SODA'19] provided a linear-time algorithm that yields a<br>$O(n^{0.497956})$-approximation in expectation; improving upon the naive<br>$O(\sqrt{n})$-approximation for the first time.<br> In this paper, we provide an algorithm that in time $O(n^{2-\varepsilon})$<br>computes an $\tilde{O}(n^{2\varepsilon/5})$-approximation with high<br>probability, for any $0 < \varepsilon \le 1$. Our result (1) gives an<br>$\tilde{O}(n^{0.4})$-approximation in linear time, improving upon the bound of<br>Hajiaghayi, Seddighin, Seddighin, and Sun, (2) provides an algorithm whose<br>approximation scales with any subquadratic running time $O(n^{2-\varepsilon})$,<br>improving upon the naive bound of $O(n^{\varepsilon/2})$ for any $\varepsilon$,<br>and (3) instead of only in expectation, succeeds with high probability.<br>

%0 Report %A Bringmann, Karl %A Cohen-Addad, Vincent %A Das, Debarati %+ Algorithms and Complexity, MPI for Informatics, Max Planck Society External Organizations External Organizations %T A Linear-Time n0.4-Approximation for Longest Common Subsequence : %G eng %U http://hdl.handle.net/21.11116/0000-0008-E267-5 %U https://arxiv.org/abs/2106.08195 %D 2021 %X We consider the classic problem of computing the Longest Common Subsequence<br>(LCS) of two strings of length $n$. While a simple quadratic algorithm has been<br>known for the problem for more than 40 years, no faster algorithm has been<br>found despite an extensive effort. The lack of progress on the problem has<br>recently been explained by Abboud, Backurs, and Vassilevska Williams [FOCS'15]<br>and Bringmann and K\"unnemann [FOCS'15] who proved that there is no<br>subquadratic algorithm unless the Strong Exponential Time Hypothesis fails.<br>This has led the community to look for subquadratic approximation algorithms<br>for the problem.<br> Yet, unlike the edit distance problem for which a constant-factor<br>approximation in almost-linear time is known, very little progress has been<br>made on LCS, making it a notoriously difficult problem also in the realm of<br>approximation. For the general setting, only a naive<br>$O(n^{\varepsilon/2})$-approximation algorithm with running time<br>$\tilde{O}(n^{2-\varepsilon})$ has been known, for any constant $0 <<br>\varepsilon \le 1$. Recently, a breakthrough result by Hajiaghayi, Seddighin,<br>Seddighin, and Sun [SODA'19] provided a linear-time algorithm that yields a<br>$O(n^{0.497956})$-approximation in expectation; improving upon the naive<br>$O(\sqrt{n})$-approximation for the first time.<br> In this paper, we provide an algorithm that in time $O(n^{2-\varepsilon})$<br>computes an $\tilde{O}(n^{2\varepsilon/5})$-approximation with high<br>probability, for any $0 < \varepsilon \le 1$. Our result (1) gives an<br>$\tilde{O}(n^{0.4})$-approximation in linear time, improving upon the bound of<br>Hajiaghayi, Seddighin, Seddighin, and Sun, (2) provides an algorithm whose<br>approximation scales with any subquadratic running time $O(n^{2-\varepsilon})$,<br>improving upon the naive bound of $O(n^{\varepsilon/2})$ for any $\varepsilon$,<br>and (3) instead of only in expectation, succeeds with high probability.<br> %K Computer Science, Data Structures and Algorithms, cs.DS,

Abstract
The fractional knapsack problem is one of the classical problems in<br>combinatorial optimization, which is well understood in the offline setting.<br>However, the corresponding online setting has been handled only briefly in the<br>theoretical computer science literature so far, although it appears in several<br>applications.

We show that there is an algorithm for the online<br>fractional knapsack problem that admits a competitive ratio of 4.39. Our result<br>significantly improves over the previously best known competitive ratio of 9.37<br>and surpasses the current best 6.65-competitive algorithm for the integral<br>case.

Abstract
Logit dynamics is a form of randomized game dynamics where players have a<br>bias towards strategic deviations that give a higher improvement in cost. It is<br>used extensively in practice. In congestion (or potential) games, the dynamics<br>converges to the so-called Gibbs distribution over the set of all strategy<br>profiles, when interpreted as a Markov chain. In general, logit dynamics might<br>converge slowly to the Gibbs distribution, but beyond that, not much is known<br>about their algorithmic aspects, nor that of the Gibbs distribution. In this<br>work, we are interested in the following two questions for congestion games: i)<br>Is there an efficient algorithm for sampling from the Gibbs distribution? ii)<br>If yes, do there also exist natural randomized dynamics that converges quickly<br>to the Gibbs distribution?<br> We first study these questions in extension parallel congestion games, a<br>well-studied special case of symmetric network congestion games. As our main<br>result, we show that there is a simple variation on the logit dynamics (in<br>which we in addition are allowed to randomly interchange the strategies of two<br>players) that converges quickly to the Gibbs distribution in such games. This<br>answers both questions above affirmatively. We also address the first question<br>for the class of so-called capacitated $k$-uniform congestion games.<br> To prove our results, we rely on the recent breakthrough work of Anari, Liu,<br>Oveis-Gharan and Vinzant (2019) concerning the approximate sampling of the base<br>of a matroid according to strongly log-concave probability distribution.<br>

Abstract
We revisit the classical problem of determining the largest copy of a simple<br>polygon $P$ that can be placed into a simple polygon $Q$. Despite significant<br>effort, known algorithms require high polynomial running times. (Barequet and<br>Har-Peled, 2001) give a lower bound of $n^{2-o(1)}$ under the 3SUM conjecture<br>when $P$ and $Q$ are (convex) polygons with $\Theta(n)$ vertices each. This<br>leaves open whether we can establish (1) hardness beyond quadratic time and (2)<br>any superlinear bound for constant-sized $P$ or $Q$.<br> In this paper, we affirmatively answer these questions under the $k$SUM<br>conjecture, proving natural hardness results that increase with each degree of<br>freedom (scaling, $x$-translation, $y$-translation, rotation): (1) Finding the<br>largest copy of $P$ that can be $x$-translated into $Q$ requires time<br>$n^{2-o(1)}$ under the 3SUM conjecture. (2) Finding the largest copy of $P$<br>that can be arbitrarily translated into $Q$ requires time $n^{2-o(1)}$ under<br>the 4SUM conjecture. (3) The above lower bounds are almost tight when one of<br>the polygons is of constant size: we obtain an $\tilde O((pq)^{2.5})$-time<br>algorithm for orthogonal polygons $P,Q$ with $p$ and $q$ vertices,<br>respectively. (4) Finding the largest copy of $P$ that can be arbitrarily<br>rotated and translated into $Q$ requires time $n^{3-o(1)}$ under the 5SUM<br>conjecture.<br> We are not aware of any other such natural $($degree of freedom $+ 1)$-SUM<br>hardness for a geometric optimization problem.<br>

Abstract
We study the problem of fairly allocating a set of indivisible goods among<br>$n$ agents with additive valuations. Envy-freeness up to any good (EFX) is<br>arguably the most compelling fairness notion in this context. However, the<br>existence of EFX allocations has not been settled and is one of the most<br>important problems in fair division. Towards resolving this problem, many<br>impressive results show the existence of its relaxations, e.g., the existence<br>of $0.618$-EFX allocations, and the existence of EFX at most $n-1$ unallocated<br>goods. The latter result was recently improved for three agents, in which the<br>two unallocated goods are allocated through an involved procedure. Reducing the<br>number of unallocated goods for arbitrary number of agents is a systematic way<br>to settle the big question. In this paper, we develop a new approach, and show<br>that for every $\varepsilon \in (0,1/2]$, there always exists a<br>$(1-\varepsilon)$-EFX allocation with sublinear number of unallocated goods and<br>high Nash welfare.<br> For this, we reduce the EFX problem to a novel problem in extremal graph<br>theory. We introduce the notion of rainbow cycle number $R(\cdot)$. For all $d<br>\in \mathbb{N}$, $R(d)$ is the largest $k$ such that there exists a $k$-partite<br>digraph $G =(\cup_{i \in [k]} V_i, E)$, in which<br> 1) each part has at most $d$ vertices, i.e., $\lvert V_i \rvert \leq d$ for<br>all $i \in [k]$,<br> 2) for any two parts $V_i$ and $V_j$, each vertex in $V_i$ has an incoming<br>edge from some vertex in $V_j$ and vice-versa, and<br> 3) there exists no cycle in $G$ that contains at most one vertex from each<br>part.<br> We show that any upper bound on $R(d)$ directly translates to a sublinear<br>bound on the number of unallocated goods. We establish a polynomial upper bound<br>on $R(d)$, yielding our main result. Furthermore, our approach is constructive,<br>which also gives a polynomial-time algorithm for finding such an allocation.<br>
