Editing

From Open Problems in Sublinear Algorithms
Jump to: navigation, search

Currently, editing the wiki requires an account with a confirmed email address. This was implemented in response to spambots and has been working pretty well so far. We may replace this requirement with CAPTCHAs in future.

If you see a typo, or you know how to make a question more clear, or you know of a missing citation, etc., help us improve the quality of this wiki! Please also do not take it personally, if some of your edits are later reverted.

Progress on problems[edit]

Since the problems were posed, some of them have been resolved and significant progress has been made on some other ones. If you know of such a case, please report it in a section “Update(s)” under the problem. See Problem 23 for an example.

Adding new problems[edit]

If you want to add a new open problem, go to the Waiting Room for instructions.

Editing bibliography[edit]

  • If you want to delete an entry from the bibliography, please email admin@sublinear.info. We will verify that no-one cites it and delete it.
  • To add an entry, first create an identifier, which has the form
    (Last-name-of-first-author)(last-name-initials-of-other-authors)-(last-two-digits-of-the-year-published)(optional-tie-breaker).
    For instance if the authors are Cormode and Muthukrishnan, and the paper was published in 2005, then the default identifier is CormodeM-05. Is this identifier is already taken, use the first English letter x such that CormodeM-05x does not appear in the bibliography yet. Right now the resulting identifier would be CormodeM-05c.
  • Add {{bibentry|identifier|authors-title-etc}} to the bibliography.
