Composable Core-sets for Determinant Maximization Problems via Spectral Spanners

We study a spectral generalization of classical combinatorial graph spanners to the spectral setting. Given a set of vectors $V\subseteq \Re^d$, we say a set $U\subseteq V$ is an $\alpha$-spectral spanner if for all $v\in V$ there is a probability distribution $\mu_v$ supported on $U$ such that $$vv^\intercal \preceq \alpha\cdot\mathbb{E}_{u\sim\mu_v} uu^\intercal.$$ We show that any set $V$ has an $\tilde{O}(d)$-spectral spanner of size $\tilde{O}(d)$ and this bound is almost optimal in the worst case...
