Under the auspices of the Computational Complexity Foundation (CCF)
We examine the communication required for generating random variables
remotely. One party Alice will be given a distribution D, and she
has to send a message to Bob, who is then required to generate a
value with distribution exactly D. Alice and Bob are allowed
to share random bits generated without the knowledge of D. There
are two settings based on how the distribution D provided to
Alice is chosen.
