Abstract: In 2008 Nguyen and Onak constructed the first constant-time algorithm for the approximation of the size of the maximum matching in bounded degree graphs. The Borel oracle machinery is a tool that can be used to convert some statements in Borel graph theory to theorems in the field of constant-time algorithms. In this paper we illustrate the power of this tool to prove the existence of the above mentioned constant-time approximation algorithm.
