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 ...

We study the interactive channel capacity of an $\epsilon$-noisy channel. The interactive channel capacity $C(\epsilon)$ is defined as the minimal ratio between the communication complexity of a problem (over a non-noisy channel), and the communication complexity of the same problem over the binary symmetric channel with noise rate $\epsilon$, where ... more >>>

We devise a deterministic interactive coding scheme with rate $1-O(\sqrt{\varepsilon\log(1/\varepsilon)})$ against $\varepsilon$-fraction of adversarial errors. The rate we obtain is tight by a result of Kol and Raz (STOC 2013). Prior to this work, deterministic coding schemes for any constant fraction $\varepsilon>0$ of adversarial errors could obtain rate no larger ... more >>>
