title = "Approximating independent set in semi-random graphs",

abstract = "We present an algorithm for the independent set problem on semi-random graphs, which are generated as follows: An adversary chooses an n-vertex graph, and then each edge is flipped independently with a probability of $\varepsilon > 0$. Our algorithm runs in expected polynomial time and guarantees an approximation ratio of roughly $O(\sqrt{\varepsilon n})$, which beats the inapproximability bounds.",
