Kinetic Algorithms:

Approximation and Trade-offs

Pankaj K. Agarwal

Duke University

Applications

- Location based services
- Animation
- Physical simulation
- Mobile and wireless networks
Need algorithms and data structures for processing, analyzing, querying moving objects

Dynamic data structures not suitable for handling moving objects

p(t) = (x(t),y(t)): Position of p at time t

- x(t), y(t): polynomials
- Degree of motion: max degree of x(), y()
- Linear motion: Degree = 1
- p(t) = a t + b, a, b in R2

- Mostly assume motion to be linear
- Trajectory of points can change
- Trajectory can be piecewise linear

- Off-line setting: Entire motion known in advance
- Bound the # combinatorial/topological changes in geometric attributes under algebraic motion [Atallah 1985]
- Convex hull, closest pair, Voronoi diagram

- # combinatorial changes in
- Convex hull: ≈n2
- closest pair: Q(n2)

- # edge-flips in Delaunay triangulation of a point set, each point moving with fixed velocity
- Upper Bound O(n3)
- Lower Bound W(n2)

- # changes in the smallest disk containing points
- Smallest disk is defined by 2 or 3 points lying on its boundary

[Basch, Guibas, Hershberger 1999]

- Event based framework
- Store some auxiliary information to expedite the simulation

- A<B, C<D, B<D hold: no computation necessary (certificates)
- A=B, C=D, or B=D: update structure (events)

Proof of Correctness

Proof

Update

Structure Update

- Maintain a set of certficates
- Certificates provide a proof of the correctness of the structure
- Determine when a certificate fails: event
- Event times are roots of certain polynomials

- Update the structure at an event and compute new certficates
- Store events in a global priority queue

Performance of KDS measured as

- # events (efficiency)
- # certificates (compactness)
- Time spent at each event (locality)
Efficient KDS developed for many problems

[A. et al. 2001][Guibas 2004]

Issues

- Too many events for many KDS
- Computing event times is expensive
- Querying moving objects
- No need to maintain the structure at all times

- Efficiency vs Approximation
- Efficiency vs Accuracy
- Querying Moving Objects
- Range searching, nearest-neighbor searching on moving points
- No need to maintain the structure at all times

I. Efficiency vs Approximation

S: Set of n moving points in R2

Maintain the diameter (width, smallest enclosing box) of S

- [A., Guibas, Hershberger, Veach]
- Diametral pair can change Q(n2) times
- KDS with ~ n2 events

- Can we maintain the approximate diameter of S more efficiently?
- Is there a small subset Q of S s.t. for all t
diam(Q(t)) ≥ (1-e) diam(S(t))

- Is there a small subset Q of S s.t. for all t
- Q: coreset of S

- F={f1, …, fn}:d-variate functions
- UF: Upper envelope of F UF(x) = maxifi(x)
- LF: Lower envelope of F LF(x) = minifi(x)

e-kernel:G is e-kernel of F if (1-e) EF(x) ≤ EG(x)

Extent:EF(x) = UF(x) - LF(x)

S: Set of n moving points in R2

w(u,S(t)):Directional width of S(t)

in direction u

A subset Q is e-kernel of S if

For u in S1, t in R

(1-e)w(u,S(t)) ≤w(u,Q(t))

fi(u,t): ‹pi(t), u›, F={f1…fn}

Claim:w(u,S(t)) = EF(t)

e-kernel of F e-kernel of S

Theorem [A., Har-Peled, Varadarajan]

F={f1, …, fn}:d-variatepolynomials of fixed degree;

e > 0parameter

An e-kernel of F of size 1/eO(1) can be computed in time O(n+ 1/eO(1)).

Corollary:S: n points moving with fixed velocity in 2D, e > 0parameter.

An e-kernel of S of size O(1/e3/2) can be computed in time O(n+ 1/e3).

Maintain an e-approximation of the bounding box of S

- Compute an e-kernel Q of S
- Smallest Bounding box defined by:
left-,right, top, and bottom-most points

- Use KDS to maintain these 4 points of Q
- Events: When one of them changes
Same approach works for maintaining

width, diameter, … approximately

- 10,000 moving points
- Trajectories linear of quadratic
- Error < 0.02 for kernel of size 32

- Delaunay triangulation in R2
- O(n3) edge flips

- An arbitrary triangulation in R2
- ≈n2 edge flips [A., Wang, Yu 2004]
Can we maintain an almost Delaunay triangulation with ≈n2 edge flips?

- ≈n2 edge flips [A., Wang, Yu 2004]

- [A., Guibas, Gao, Koltun, Sharir 2006]
- Maintain a subgraph of Delaunay triangulation that
- contains W(n) Delauanay edges
- contains all wide Delaunay edges
- performs ≈n2 edge flips

Is there a good definition of almost Delaunay triangulation?

Efficiency vs Accuracy

Robust KDS

Proof

Update

Structure Update

- The kinetic data structure framework
- Events: Computing roots of a polynomial
- KDS assumes events are processed in correct order
* Need exact root comparison; EXPENSIVE!

* Need degeneracy handling (simultaneous events); PAINFUL!

Not scheduled because its computed event time is before current time

- What if using floating point arithmetic to compute and compare event times inexactly?
* Pros: cheaper arithmetic operations

* Cons: events may now be processed in the wrong order

processed

scheduled

In-order:

Out-of-order:

t

- Issues in out-of-order event processing
* Does the KDS fall into an infinite loop?

* Can an event be delayed for too long?

* Can error in the maintained structure be too large?

[Abam, A., de Berg, Yu, 2006]

- RobustKDS to address these issues
- KDS is correct at all times except near the event times
- No event is delayed too long
- Bonus: Degeneracies are handled automatically

- Root computation procedure CROP
* : input polynomial; : error bound in CROP

* CROP( ) does the following

(1) find set of disjoint, open event intervals

s.t. each and they cover all roots

(2) find parity of the number of roots lying in each

(3) return intervals with odd number of roots

If Certificate conforms to

schedule a future event at ;

Otherwise schedule a past event at .

: failing certificate; : polynomial associated with

A past event…

A future event…

I may encounter a past event…

The new EventTime(.)

* Almost the same as traditional kinetic sorting algorithm…

(but not always, e.g., robust kinetic convex hull)

- The KDS does not fall into an infinite loop
- List is correct except within -neighborhood of actual event times

: i-th pt in maintained list

: i-th pt in sorted list

:maximum velocity over time interval

- Events may be delayed by at most time long
- Even when list is incorrect, it is still close to true sorted list geometrically

- Kinetic tournament
- Convex hull, kd-tree, range-tree, …
- Is there a robust KDS for Delaunay triangulation?
- Find a sequence of edge-flips to convert a self-intersecting triangulation to Delaunay triangulation

- Use the ideas from property testing to ensure KDS is almost correct with high probability
- Competitive analysis to measure the performance of KDS

III. Querying Moving Objects

S: Set of points, each moving with fixed velocity in R2

Preprocess S into a data structure:

- (Q1) Given rectangleRat timet, report all points S(t)∩R
- (Q2) Given R and time interval[a,b], report all points of that pass thru R during the time interval [a,b]

- Kientic range trees [A., Arge, Erickson 2003]
- O(n log n) space, O(log n + k) query (Q1)
- Use KDS approach to update range tree
- Q(n2) events; O(log2n) (amortized) time at each event
- Queries have to arrive in chronological order

- Kinetic kd-trees [A. Gao, Guibas 2003]
- O(n) space, O(n1/2 + k) query (Q1)
- Q(n2) events; O(log2n) (amortized) time at each event
- Queries have to arrive in chronological order

- What if queries do not arrive in chronological order? Why spend time processing events?

Partition tree based approach [A., Arge, Erickson]

- O(n) space, O(n1/2 + k) query time
- O(log2n) insertion/deletion of a point

Answering (Q1) query

A similar approach works for (Q2) queries

(near future)

(distant future)

- Time-responsiveness
* Near future queries need to be answered more quickly

* Optimize structure for near future

* Approximate distant future

- Results [A., Arge, Erickson, Yu, 2004]
* Orthogonal range queries in R1 , R2

~n space, (f(tq)/n)1/2 + logO(1)n + kquery time

f(tq): # events between current time and tq

- : set of linearly moving points in R1
* Given interval and time , report

- In tx-plane, reduces to stabbing query
* Report all lines intersecting a vertical

segment

- Overall structure
* Divide tx-plane into slabs

* i-th slab contains events (vertices)

* A window structure for each slab to answer stabbing query

cutting tree

partition tree

- Hierarchical triangulation of the i-th slab
* triangles

* Each triangle intersects at most lines

- Partition tree for each triangle
* Size: , query time:

- Overall
* Space: , query:

(note that )

* Update every other events

( amortized per event)
