ThinkD (Think before you Discard)
is a streaming algorithm for triangle counting in a fully dynamic graph stream with edge additions and deletions.
estimates the counts of global and local triangles by making a single pass over the stream.
has the following advantages:
- Accurate: ThinkD is up to 4.3X more accurate than its best competitors within the same memory budget
- Fast: ThinkD is up to 2.2X faster for the same accuracy requirements
- Theoretically Sound: ThinkD always maintains unbiased estimates
is described in the following paper:
