Feasible Time-Optimal Algorithms for Boolean Functions on Exclusive-Write PRAMs

It was shown some years ago that the computation time for many important
Boolean functions of n arguments on concurrent-read exclusive-write
parallel random-access machines
(CREW PRAMs) of unlimited size is at least f(n) = 0.72 log n.
On the other hand, it ... more >>>

Better Simulation of Exponential Threshold Weights by Polynomial Weights

We give an explicit construction of depth two threshold circuit with polynomial weights and $\tilde{O}(n^5)$ gates that computes an arbitrary threshold function. We also give the construction of such circuits with $O(n^3/\log n)$ gates computing the COMPARISON and CARRY functions, and that with $O(n^4/\log n)$ gates computing the ADDITION function. ... more >>>

The communication complexity of addition

Suppose each of $k \le n^{o(1)}$ players holds an $n$-bit number $x_i$ in its hand. The players wish to determine if $\sum_{i \le k} x_i = s$. We give a public-coin protocol with error $1\%$ and communication $O(k \lg k)$. The communication bound is independent of $n$, and for $k ... more >>>
