In this paper, we give explicit constructions of extractors which work for

a source of any min-entropy on strings of length $n$. The first

construction extracts any constant fraction of the min-entropy using

O(log^2 n) additional random bits. The second extracts all the

min-entropy using O(log^3 n) additional random ...

We give explicit constructions of extractors which work for a source of

any min-entropy on strings of length n. These extractors can extract any

constant fraction of the min-entropy using O(log^2 n) additional random

bits, and can extract all the min-entropy using O(log^3 n) additional

random bits. Both of these ...
