Sourav Chakraborty, Eldar Fischer, Yonatan Goldhirsh, Arie Matsliah#### On the Power of Conditional Samples in Distribution Testing

Revisions: 1

Eldar Fischer, Yonatan Goldhirsh, Oded Lachish

For a property $P$ and a sub-property $P'$, we say that $P$ is $P'$-partially testable with $q$ queries if there exists an algorithm that distinguishes, with high probability, inputs in $P'$ from inputs $\epsilon$-far from $P$ by using $q$ queries. There are natural properties that require many queries to test, ... more >>>

In this paper we define and examine the power of the conditional-sampling oracle in the context of distribution-property testing. The conditional-sampling oracle for a discrete distribution $\mu$ takes as input a subset $S \subset [n]$ of the domain, and outputs a random sample $i \in S$ drawn according to $\mu$, ... more >>>
