#### On the Construction of Pseudo-Random Permutations: Luby-Rackoff Revisited

Luby and Rackoff showed a method for constructing a pseudo-random
permutation from a pseudo-random function. The method is based on
composing four (or three for weakened security) so called Feistel
permutations each of which requires the evaluation of a pseudo-random
function. We reduce somewhat the complexity ... more >>>

#### Smoothed Analysis of the Height of Binary Search Trees

Revisions: 2

Binary search trees are one of the most fundamental data structures. While the
height of such a tree may be linear in the worst case, the average height with
respect to the uniform distribution is only logarithmic. The exact value is one
of the best studied problems in average case ... more >>>

#### Almost k-wise vs. k-wise independent permutations, and uniformity for general group actions

A family of permutations in $S_n$ is $k$-wise independent if a uniform permutation chosen from the family maps any distinct $k$ elements to any distinct $k$ elements equally likely. Efficient constructions of $k$-wise independent permutations are known for $k=2$ and $k=3$, but are unknown for $k \ge 4$. In fact, ... more >>>

#### A sampling lower bound for permutations

A map $f:[n]^{\ell}\to[n]^{n}$ has locality $d$ if each output symbol
in $[n]=\{1,2,\ldots,n\}$ depends only on $d$ of the $\ell$ input
symbols in $[n]$. We show that the output distribution of a $d$-local
map has statistical distance at least $1-2\cdot\exp(-n/\log^{c^{d}}n)$
from a uniform permutation of $[n]$. This seems to be the ... more >>>

#### Separations between Combinatorial Measures for Transitive Functions

The role of symmetry in Boolean functions $f:\{0,1\}^n \to \{0,1\}$ has been extensively studied in complexity theory.
For example, symmetric functions, that is, functions that are invariant under the action of $S_n$ is an important class of functions in the study of Boolean functions.
A function $f:\{0,1\}^n \to \{0,1\}$ ... more >>>
