Sublinear Algorithms

As the sizes of datasets grow to enormous proportions,  there is a need for analyzing data with sublinear constraints -- that is, for the design of algorithms which require only sublinear time, space, measurements and/or samples.    Our work has designed sublinear algorithms for estimating parameters of graphs, combinatorial objects, functions and distributions.
