A Separation of Syntactic and Nonsyntactic (1,+k)-Branching Programs

For (1,+k)-branching programs and read-k-times branching
programs syntactic and nonsyntactic variants can be distinguished. The
nonsyntactic variants correspond in a natural way to sequential
computations with restrictions on reading the input while lower bound
proofs are easier or only known for the syntactic variants. In this
paper it is shown ... more >>>

A Lower Bound Technique for Restricted Branching Programs and Applications

We present a new lower bound technique for two types of restricted
Branching Programs (BPs), namely for read-once BPs (BP1s) with
restricted amount of nondeterminism and for (1,+k)-BPs. For this
technique, we introduce the notion of (strictly) k-wise l-mixed
Boolean functions, which generalizes the concept of l-mixedness ... more >>>
