title = "On the impossibility of dimension reduction for doubling subsets of ℓp",

abstract = "A major open problem in the field of metric embedding is the existence of dimension reduction for n-point subsets of Euclidean space, such that both distortion and dimension depend only on the doubling constant of the pointset, and not on its cardinality. In this paper, we negate this possibility for ℓp spaces with p > 2. In particular, we introduce an n-point subset of ℓp with doubling constant O(1), and demonstrate that any embedding of the set into ℓpd with distortion D must have D ≥ Ω ((c log n/d 1/2-1/p Copyright is held by the owner/author(s).",
