- Introduced by Chakrabarti, Faloutsos, Zhan (2004) as a “scale-free” digraph generator (power law degree distribution).
- Recursively partitions the adjacency matrix of a graph G according to four probabilities to select position of an edge. The number of vertices must be a power of two, say n = 2k.
- Repeats process M times, and may choose an edge multiple times. Duplicates are discarded at the end to form G’ with M’ distinct edges.
- Used in many applications, including the SSCA#2 HPC benchmark.

- Let α + β + γ + δ = 1.
- Edges are generated by recursively using parameters to choose a location in the adjacency matrix.
- Alternatively, you can think of each choice as specifying a pair of digits in the binary representations of the edge endpoints.

- For the remainder of this talk, we will think of the vertices of G as length-k binary strings.
- Let the eα, eβ, eγ, and eδ be the number of positions in the paired binary representations of an edge’s endpoints corresponding to (0,0), (0,1), (1,0), and (1,1), respectively.
- Example: e = (u,v) in a graph with 26 vertices.

eα= 1 eβ = 2

eγ = 1 eδ= 2

u = 0 0 0 1 1 1

v = 0 1 1 0 1 1

- The probability of generating e is then:

- We proved the probability of generating any edge that starts at a vertex u depends solely on the number of zeros in u’s binary string, say uz.
- Let λ = α + β and μ = α + γ be the probabilities of choosing “up” and “left” in the matrix, respectively.
- Given a vertex u, one can show the probability of an edge of the form (u,v) for some v is:
- Similarly, the probability of an edge (v,u) is:

- R-MAT naturally generates a multi-graph before duplicate edges are removed.
- The probability of out-degree d is binomial:
- The expected number of vertices with out-degree d is:
- The probability distribution for the total degree is given by:

α = β = γ = δ = .25

α = .55, β = γ = .1, δ = .25

Note that the total degree distribution varies

with the choice of your quadrant probabilities.

α = δ = .15, β = .5, γ = .2

n = 26 vertices, M = 29 edges

n = 26 vertices, M = 29 edges, M’ ~ 28.4 edges

α = .55, β = γ = .1, δ = .25

- A classical occupancy problem is often described in terms of tossing r indistinguishable balls into m distinguishable urns and finding the probability that exactly n of these urns are non-empty.
- The R-MAT generator can be modeled as such a problem by envisioning the 4k positions in the adjacency matrix as the set of urns, and the M randomly generated edges as the set of balls tossed into these urns. The number of edges M’ in the graph G’ then corresponds to the number of non-empty urns.

- Traditionally, when throwing balls into urns, the probability of “hitting” every urn is the same. R-MAT matrix positions have unequal probabilities, so let q = {q1, q2, …, qm} be the urn probabilities.
- Let U(r, l, m, q, t) be the probability that exactly t of the first l urns are empty after tossing r balls into the set of m urns with probability vector q.
- Johnson & Kotz proved:
- Note this quantity is independent of the ordering of elements in q.

- One can now derive an expression for the probability of outdegree d by letting = {p(uv)} v=0,1,…n-1:
- Note that since the function U is independent of the ordering of , this quantity is the same for all vertices u with a given value of uz.
- Unfortunately, this is not a computationally convenient formula.

- A straightforward corollary to Johnson & Kotz allows us to calculate U when l is not equal to m:
- We can now think of throwing balls into the 2k urns in a row plus a “big urn” encompassing all other possible edges, with probability 1 - . Let be the vector obtained by appending 1- to . Then,

KEY FACT: The out-degree distribution of a vertex is completely determined by the parameters k, M, α, β, γ, δ, and the number of zeros in its binary representation (uz).

The exact out-degree distribution for the 7 values of uz & the overall out-degree distribution for a 64-node graph with M = 8*64 and α = .55, β = γ = .1, δ = .25.

- Problem: calculating the out-degree distribution using these formulas requires massive amounts of computation, e.g. a naïve approach requires O(267) operations for a 64-node graph!
- Solution: we analyzed the limiting distributions.
- There has been a lot of work on the necessary conditions on a set of probability vectors to get certain distributions. For example, when the probabilities are all equal, the limiting distribution is Poisson.

Theorem (Chistyakov, 1964)

Given a set of m urns with probabilities q = {q1, q2, …, qm} which sum to 1, let

X be the r.v. corresponding to the number of empty urns after tossing r balls.

Then if r, m tend to ∞ with r/m → C1(non-negative and finite), and

m ∙ qi≤ C2 < ∞ for each i, then

X ~ N(E[X], Var[X])

X be the r.v. corresponding to the number of empty urns after tossing r balls.

m ∙ qi≤ C2 < ∞ for each i, then

X ~ N(E[X], Var[X])

- We first proved a corollary showing that the number of empty urns among the first m-1 of the m urns is also asymptotically normally distributed with the expected mean and variance.

- We first proved a corollary showing that the number of empty urns among the first m-1 of the m urns is also asymptotically normally distributed with the expected mean and variance.
- Assuming that the ratio of r to m is bounded (m= O(n)), it remains to prove that m∙qi≤ C2 <∞ for each i. In the case of R-MAT, for every vertex u, we need to show n ∙ p(uv) → cv for all vertices v.

- Case 1: 0 < α, β, γ, δ ≤ 0.5
- This is straightforward, as the quantityn∙p(uv) is uniformly bounded above by the constant 1.

- Case 2: 0 < min(α, β, γ, δ) & max(α, β, γ, δ) > 0.5
- We were able to prove that all but a vanishing proportion of the vertices satisfy the necessary criterion:
- This requires the use of Chebyshev’s inequality to prove the limit of a weighted sum of binomial coefficients.

- These results allow us to prove that the limiting distributions for in-, out-, and total-degree are asymptotically normal when all parameters are strictly positive and M = O(n) :
- The overall degree distribution for G’ is thus a mixture of normal distributions (one for each value of uz).

Comparison of observed versus limiting distribution,

averaged over 2048 graphs with n = 212 and M = 217.

- We can also approximate the variance of M’. We believe M’ is normally distributed, but this is still an open problem.

This is a histogram of the observed values of M’ for 216 graphs generated with n = 220, M = 223 and R-MAT parameters

α = .55, β = γ = .1, δ = .25.

The red line shows a normal distribution with mean and variance calculated according to our formulas.

- Objective: Leverage theoretical work on graph decompositions to create efficient computational framework for graph-based data.

- Approach:
- Low width decompositions of sparse application graphs
- Algorithm complexity becomes exponential in width, but polynomial in number of nodes
- Integrate parallel computing with decompositions for massive graph analysis

- Challenges:
- Low width decompositions are insufficient
- Need to control structure of the decomposition (balanced bag sizes & tree far from being a path)
- Modify dynamic programming to run in parallel
