Anindya De, Piyush Kurur, Chandan Saha, Ramprasad Saptharishi#### Fast Integer Multiplication using Modular Arithmetic

Eshan Chattopadhyay, Anindya De, Rocco Servedio

We show that a very simple pseudorandom generator fools intersections of $k$ linear threshold functions (LTFs) and arbitrary functions of $k$ LTFs over $n$-dimensional Gaussian space.

The two analyses of our PRG (for intersections versus arbitrary functions of LTFs) are quite different from each other and from previous analyses of ... more >>>

In the noisy population recovery problem of Dvir et al., the goal is to learn

an unknown distribution $f$ on binary strings of length $n$ from noisy samples. For some parameter $\mu \in [0,1]$,

a noisy sample is generated by flipping each coordinate of a sample from $f$ independently with

In this paper, we construct pseudorandom generators for the class of \emph{combinatorial sums}, a class of functions first studied by \cite{GMRZ13}

and defined as follows: A function $f: [m]^n \rightarrow \{0,1\}$ is said to be a combinatorial sum if there exists functions $f_1, \ldots, f_n: [m] \rightarrow \{0,1\}$ such that

We give a deterministic algorithm for

approximately counting satisfying assignments of a degree-$d$ polynomial threshold function

(PTF).

Given a degree-$d$ input polynomial $p(x_1,\dots,x_n)$ over $\mathbb{R}^n$

and a parameter $\epsilon > 0$, our algorithm approximates

$

\mathbf{P}_{x \sim \{-1,1\}^n}[p(x) \geq 0]

$

to within an additive $\pm \epsilon$ in time $O_{d,\epsilon}(1)\cdot ...

We give a {\em deterministic} algorithm for approximately computing the fraction of Boolean assignments that satisfy a degree-$2$ polynomial threshold function. Given a degree-2 input polynomial $p(x_1,\dots,x_n)$ and a parameter $\eps > 0$, the algorithm approximates

\[

\Pr_{x \sim \{-1,1\}^n}[p(x) \geq 0]

\]

to within an additive $\pm \eps$ in ...

Let $g: \{-1,1\}^k \to \{-1,1\}$ be any Boolean function and $q_1,\dots,q_k$ be any degree-2 polynomials over $\{-1,1\}^n.$ We give a \emph{deterministic} algorithm which, given as input explicit descriptions of $g,q_1,\dots,q_k$ and an accuracy parameter $\eps>0$, approximates \[

\Pr_{x \sim \{-1,1\}^n}[g(\sign(q_1(x)),\dots,\sign(q_k(x)))=1] \]

to within an additive $\pm \eps$. For any constant ...

For $f$ a weighted voting scheme used by $n$ voters to choose between two candidates, the $n$ \emph{Shapley-Shubik Indices} (or {\em Shapley values}) of $f$ provide a measure of how much control each voter can exert over the overall outcome of the vote. Shapley-Shubik indices were introduced by Lloyd Shapley ... more >>>

We initiate the study of \emph{inverse} problems in approximate uniform generation, focusing on uniform generation of satisfying assignments of various types of Boolean functions. In such an inverse problem, the algorithm is given uniform random satisfying assignments of an unknown function $f$ belonging to a class $\C$ of Boolean functions ... more >>>

The \emph{Chow parameters} of a Boolean function $f: \{-1,1\}^n \to \{-1,1\}$ are its $n+1$ degree-0 and degree-1 Fourier coefficients. It has been known since 1961 \cite{Chow:61, Tannenbaum:61} that the (exact values of the) Chow parameters of any linear threshold function $f$ uniquely specify $f$ within the space of all Boolean ... more >>>

The results of Raghavendra (2008) show that assuming Khot's Unique Games Conjecture (2002), for every constraint satisfaction problem there exists a generic semi-definite program that achieves the optimal approximation factor. This result is existential as it does not provide an explicit optimal rounding procedure nor does it allow to calculate ... more >>>

We consider the problem of extracting randomness from sources that are efficiently samplable, in the sense that each output bit of the sampler only depends on some small number $d$ of the random input bits. As our main result, we construct a deterministic extractor that, given any $d$-local source with ... more >>>

We prove the existence of a $poly(n,m)$-time computable

pseudorandom generator which ``$1/poly(n,m)$-fools'' DNFs with $n$ variables

and $m$ terms, and has seed length $O(\log^2 nm \cdot \log\log nm)$.

Previously, the best pseudorandom generator for depth-2 circuits had seed

length $O(\log^3 nm)$, and was due to Bazzi (FOCS 2007).

It ... more >>>

We give near-optimal constructions of extractors secure against quantum bounded-storage adversaries. One instantiation gives the first such extractor to achieve an output length Theta(K-b), where K is the source's entropy and b the adversary's storage, depending linearly on the adversary's amount of storage, together with a poly-logarithmic seed length. Another ... more >>>

We study the power of non-uniform attacks against one-way

functions and pseudorandom generators.

Fiat and Naor show that for every function

$f: [N]\to [N]$

there is an algorithm that inverts $f$ everywhere using

(ignoring lower order factors)

time, space and advice at most $N^{3/4}$.

We show that ... more >>>

We give an $O(N\cdot \log N\cdot 2^{O(\log^*N)})$ algorithm for

multiplying two $N$-bit integers that improves the $O(N\cdot \log

N\cdot \log\log N)$ algorithm by

Sch\"{o}nhage-Strassen. Both these algorithms use modular

arithmetic. Recently, F\"{u}rer gave an $O(N\cdot \log

N\cdot 2^{O(\log^*N)})$ algorithm which however uses arithmetic over

complex numbers as opposed to ...
