Inapproximability Results for the Closest Vector Problem with Preprocessing over infty Norm

We show that the Closest Vector
Problem with Preprocessing over infty Norm
is NP-hard to approximate to within a factor of $(\log
n)^{1/2-\epsilon}$. The result is the same as Regev and Rosen' result, but our proof methods are different from theirs. Their
reductions are based on norm embeddings. However, ... more >>>

Two Query PCP with Sub-Constant Error

We show that the NP-Complete language 3Sat has a PCP
verifier that makes two queries to a proof of almost-linear size
and achieves sub-constant probability of error $o(1)$. The
verifier performs only projection tests, meaning that the answer
to the first query determines at most one accepting answer to the

The Projection Games Conjecture and The NP-Hardness of ln n-Approximating Set-Cover

In this paper we put forward a conjecture: an instantiation of the Sliding Scale Conjecture of Bellare, Goldwasser, Lund and Russell to projection games. We refer to this conjecture as the Projection Games Conjecture.

We further suggest the research agenda of establishing new hardness of approximation results based on the ... more >>>

Hardness of Rainbow Coloring Hypergraphs

A hypergraph is $k$-rainbow colorable if there exists a vertex coloring using $k$ colors such that each hyperedge has all the $k$ colors. Unlike usual hypergraph coloring, rainbow coloring becomes harder as the number of colors increases. This work studies the rainbow colorability of hypergraphs which are guaranteed to be ... more >>>

Revisiting Alphabet Reduction in Dinur's PCP

Dinur's celebrated proof of the PCP theorem alternates two main steps in several iterations: gap amplification to increase the soundness gap by a large constant factor (at the expense of much larger alphabet size), and a composition step that brings back the alphabet size to an absolute constant (at the ... more >>>

Conditional Dichotomy of Boolean Ordered Promise CSPs

Promise Constraint Satisfaction Problems (PCSPs) are a generalization of Constraint Satisfaction Problems (CSPs) where each predicate has a strong and a weak form and given a CSP instance, the objective is to distinguish if the strong form can be satisfied vs. even the weak form cannot be satisfied. Since their ... more >>>
