Erez Petrank, Guy Rothblum#### Selection from Structured Data Sets

Oded Goldreich, Guy Rothblum

For every polynomial $q$, we present worst-case to average-case (almost-linear-time) reductions for a class of problems in $\cal P$ that are widely conjectured not to be solvable in time $q$.

These classes contain, for example, the problems of counting the number of $k$-cliques in a graph, for any fixed $k\geq3$.

In this work we study interactive proofs for tractable languages. The (honest) prover should be efficient and run in polynomial time, or in other words a ``muggle'' (Muggle: ``In the fiction of J.K. Rowling: a person who possesses no magical powers''; from the Oxford English Dictionary). The verifier should be ... more >>>

Oded Goldreich, Guy Rothblum

A proof system is called doubly-efficient if the prescribed prover strategy can be implemented in polynomial-time and the verifier's strategy can be implemented in almost-linear-time.

We present direct constructions of doubly-efficient interactive proof systems for problems in $\cal P$ that are believed to have relatively high complexity.

Specifically, such ...

The celebrated IP=PSPACE Theorem [LFKN92,Shamir92] allows an all-powerful but untrusted prover to convince a polynomial-time verifier of the validity of extremely complicated statements (as long as they can be evaluated using polynomial space). The interactive proof system designed for this purpose requires a polynomial number of communication rounds and an ... more >>>

Cynthia Dwork, Moni Naor, Guy Rothblum

We are interested in constructing short two-message arguments for various languages, where the complexity of the verifier is small (e.g. linear in the input size, or even sublinear if the input is coded appropriately).

In 2000 Aiello et al. suggested the tantalizing possibility of obtaining such arguments for all of ... more >>>

We address the following problem: how to execute any algorithm P, for an unbounded number of executions, in the presence of an adversary who observes partial information on the internal state of the computation during executions. The security guarantee is that the adversary learns nothing, beyond P's input/output behavior.

This ... more >>>

We investigate the complexity of the following computational problem:

Polynomial Entropy Approximation (PEA):

Given a low-degree polynomial mapping

$p : F^n\rightarrow F^m$, where $F$ is a finite field, approximate the output entropy

$H(p(U_n))$, where $U_n$ is the uniform distribution on $F^n$ and $H$ may be any of several entropy measures.

Guy Rothblum, Salil Vadhan

Starting with Kilian (STOC `92), several works have shown how to use probabilistically checkable proofs (PCPs) and cryptographic primitives such as collision-resistant hashing to construct very efficient argument systems (a.k.a. computationally sound proofs), for example with polylogarithmic communication complexity. Ishai et al. (CCC `07) raised the question of whether PCPs ... more >>>

We study the complexity of locally list-decoding binary error correcting codes with good parameters (that are polynomially related to information theoretic bounds). We show that computing majority over $\Theta(1/\eps)$ bits is essentially equivalent to locally list-decoding binary codes from relative distance $1/2-\eps$ with list size $\poly(1/\eps)$. That is, a local-decoder ... more >>>

Program checking, program self-correcting and program self-testing

were pioneered by [Blum and Kannan] and [Blum, Luby and Rubinfeld] in

the mid eighties as a new way to gain confidence in software, by

considering program correctness on an input by input basis rather than

full program verification. Work in ...

Suppose you want to store a large file on a remote and unreliable server. You would like to verify that your file has not been corrupted, so you store a small private (randomized)``fingerprint'' of the file on your own computer. This is the setting for the well-studied authentication problem, and ... more >>>

Erez Petrank, Guy Rothblum

A large body of work studies the complexity of selecting the

$j$-th largest element in an arbitrary set of $n$ elements (a.k.a.

the select$(j)$ operation). In this work, we study the

complexity of select in data that is partially structured by

an initial preprocessing stage and in a data structure ...
