Mark Braverman, Sumegha Garg, David Woodruff#### The Coin Problem with Applications to Data Streams

Mark Braverman, Sumegha Garg, David Woodruff

Consider the problem of computing the majority of a stream of $n$ i.i.d. uniformly random bits. This problem, known as the {\it coin problem}, is central to a number of counting problems in different data stream models. We show that any streaming algorithm for solving this problem with large constant ... more >>>
