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 >>>

Succinct and explicit circuits for sorting and connectivity

We study which functions can be computed by efficient circuits whose gate connections are very easy to compute. We give quasilinear-size circuits for sorting whose connections can be computed by decision trees with depth logarithmic in the length of the gate description. We also show that NL has NC$^2$ circuits ... more >>>

Is There an Oblivious RAM Lower Bound?

Revisions: 1

An Oblivious RAM (ORAM), introduced by Goldreich and Ostrovsky (JACM 1996), is a (probabilistic) RAM that hides its access pattern, i.e. for every input the observed locations accessed are similarly distributed. Great progress has been made in recent years in minimizing the overhead of ORAM constructions, with the goal of ... more >>>

On the asymptotic complexity of sorting

We investigate the number of pairwise comparisons sufficient to sort $n$ elements chosen from a linearly ordered set. This number is shown to be $\log_2(n!) + o(n)$ thus improving over the previously known upper bounds of the form $\log_2(n!) + \Theta(n)$. The new bound is achieved by the proposed group ... more >>>
