Arkadev Chattopadhyay, Nikhil Mande, Suhail Sherif#### The Log-Approximate-Rank Conjecture is False

Arkadev Chattopadhyay, Nikhil Mande, Suhail Sherif

We construct a simple and total XOR function $F$ on $2n$ variables that has only $O(\sqrt{n})$ spectral norm, $O(n^2)$ approximate rank and $n^{O(\log n)}$ approximate nonnegative rank. We show it has polynomially large randomized bounded-error communication complexity of $\Omega(\sqrt{n})$. This yields the first exponential gap between the logarithm of the ... more >>>
