Talk Title: Mapping the Internet w

ith DIMES and Counting Motifs

Talk Abstract:

DIMES has revolu

tionized Internet mapping by introducing the
usage of software based a

gents instead of well engineered
instrumentation boxes. In this talk I

''ll present the rational
behind DIMES and then present results from o

ur Internet
mapping and measurement studies. In particular, I''ll pre

sent
recent results from WAW''09 and SODA''10 on efficiently
coun

ting motifs (small subgraphs) in large graphs.
