Quantum proof systems for iterated exponential time, and beyond

We show that any language in nondeterministic time $\exp(\exp(\cdots\exp(n)))$, where the number of iterated exponentials is an arbitrary function $R(n)$, can be decided by a multiprover interactive proof system with a classical polynomial-time verifier and a constant number of quantum entangled provers, with completeness $1$ and soundness $1 - \exp(-C\exp(\cdots\exp(n)))$, ... more >>>

Parallel repetition via fortification: analytic view and the quantum case

In a recent work, Moshkovitz [FOCS '14] presented a transformation on two-player games called "fortification'', and gave an elementary proof of an (exponential decay) parallel repetition theorem for fortified two-player projection games. In this paper, we give an analytic reformulation of Moshkovitz's fortification framework, which was originally cast in combinatorial ... more >>>

A multi-prover interactive proof for NEXP sound against entangled provers

We prove a strong limitation on the ability of entangled provers to collude in a multiplayer game. Our main result is the first nontrivial lower bound on the class MIP* of languages having multi-prover interactive proofs with entangled provers; namely MIP* contains NEXP, the class of languages decidable in non-deterministic ... more >>>

A concentration inequality for the overlap of a vector on a large set, With application to the communication complexity of the Gap-Hamming-Distance problem

Given two sets $A,B\subseteq\R^n$, a measure of their dependence, or correlation, is given by the expected squared inner product between random $x\in A $ and $y\in B$. We prove an inequality showing that no two sets of large enough Gaussian measure (at least $e^{-\delta n}$ for some constant $\delta >0$) ... more >>>

Near-optimal extractors against quantum storage

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 >>>
