SDP for Community Detection with many communities

I am happy to announce that there is significant progress on Open Problem 9.2. of my notes, in this paper Bruce Hajek, Yihong Wu, and Jiaming Xu show that, indeed, for k = \Omega(\log n) communities, the natural Semidefinite Program is suboptimal!

Congratulations to the three!
