Vikraman Arvind, Partha Mukhopadhyay#### The Ideal Membership Problem and Polynomial Identity Testing

Revisions: 2

Let $C$ be a depth-3 $\Sigma\Pi\Sigma$ arithmetic circuit of size $s$,

computing a polynomial $f \in \mathbb{F}[x_1,\ldots, x_n]$ (where $\mathbb{F}$ = $\mathbb{Q}$ or

$\mathbb{C}$) with fan-in of product gates bounded by $d$. We give a

deterministic time $2^d \text{poly}(n,s)$ polynomial identity testing

algorithm to check whether $f \equiv 0$ or ...

In this paper we study arithmetic computations over non-associative, and non-commutative free polynomials ring $\mathbb{F}\{x_1,x_2,\ldots,x_n\}$. Prior to this work, the non-associative arithmetic model of computation was considered by Hrubes, Wigderson, and Yehudayoff [HWY10]. They were interested in completeness and explicit lower bound results.

We focus on two main problems ... more >>>

An efficient randomized polynomial identity test for noncommutative

polynomials given by noncommutative arithmetic circuits remains an

open problem. The main bottleneck to applying known techniques is that

a noncommutative circuit of size $s$ can compute a polynomial of

degree exponential in $s$ with a double-exponential number of nonzero

monomials. ...

Let $G=\langle S\rangle$ be a solvable permutation group given as input by generating set $S$. I.e.\ $G$ is a solvable subgroup of the symmetric group $S_n$. We give a deterministic polynomial-time algorithm that computes an expanding generator set for $G$. More precisely, given a constant $\lambda <1$ we can compute ... more >>>

Given a finite group $G$ by its multiplication table as input, we give a deterministic polynomial-time construction of a directed Cayley graph on $G$ with $O(\log |G|)$ generators, which has a rapid mixing property and a constant spectral expansion.\\

We prove a similar result in the undirected case, and ... more >>>

In this paper we give the first construction of a pseudorandom generator, with seed length $O(\log n)$, for $\mathrm{CC}_0[p]$, the class of constant-depth circuits with unbounded fan-in $\mathrm{MOD}_p$ gates, for some prime $p$. More accurately, the seed length of our generator is $O(\log n)$ for any constant error $\epsilon>0$. In ... more >>>

We give the first sub-exponential time deterministic polynomial

identity testing algorithm for depth-$4$ multilinear circuits with

a small top fan-in. More accurately, our algorithm works for

depth-$4$ circuits with a plus gate at the top (also known as

$\Spsp$ circuits) and has a running time of

$\exp(\poly(\log(n),\log(s),k))$ where $n$ is ...

Motivated by the quantum algorithm in \cite{MN05} for testing

commutativity of black-box groups, we study the following problem:

Given a black-box finite ring $R=\angle{r_1,\cdots,r_k}$ where

$\{r_1,r_2,\cdots,r_k\}$ is an additive generating set for $R$ and a

multilinear polynomial $f(x_1,\cdots,x_m)$ over $R$ also accessed as

a ...

We give a randomized polynomial-time identity test for

noncommutative circuits of polynomial degree based on the isolation

lemma. Using this result, we show that derandomizing the isolation

lemma implies noncommutative circuit size lower bounds. More

precisely, we consider two restricted versions of the isolation

lemma and show that derandomizing each ...

Using ideas from automata theory we design a new efficient

(deterministic) identity test for the \emph{noncommutative}

polynomial identity testing problem (first introduced and studied by

Raz-Shpilka in 2005 and Bogdanov-Wee in 2005). More precisely,

given as input a noncommutative

circuit $C(x_1,\cdots,x_n)$ computing a ...

\begin{abstract}

Given a monomial ideal $I=\angle{m_1,m_2,\cdots,m_k}$ where $m_i$

are monomials and a polynomial $f$ as an arithmetic circuit the

\emph{Ideal Membership Problem } is to test if $f\in I$. We study

this problem and show the following results.

\begin{itemize}

\item[(a)] If the ideal $I=\angle{m_1,m_2,\cdots,m_k}$ for a
