Poly-logarithmic independence fools AC0 circuits

We prove that poly-sized AC0 circuits cannot distinguish a poly-logarithmically independent distribution from the uniform one. This settles the 1990 conjecture by Linial and Nisan [LN90]. The only prior progress on the problem was by Bazzi [Baz07], who showed that O(log^2 n)-independent distributions fool poly-size DNF formulas. Razborov [Raz08] has ... more >>>

Some limitations of the sum of small-bias distributions

Revisions: 1

We exhibit $\epsilon$-biased distributions $D$
on $n$ bits and functions $f\colon \{0,1\}^n
\to \{0,1\}$ such that the xor of two independent
copies ($D+D$) does not fool $f$, for any of the
following choices:

1. $\epsilon = 2^{-\Omega(n)}$ and $f$ is in P/poly;

2. $\epsilon = 2^{-\Omega(n/\log n)}$ and $f$ is ... more >>>

Pseudorandom Correlation Breakers, Independence Preserving Mergers and their Applications

Revisions: 1

The recent line of study on randomness extractors has been a great success, resulting in exciting new techniques, new connections, and breakthroughs to long standing open problems in the following five seemingly different topics: seeded non-malleable extractors, privacy amplification protocols with an active adversary, independent source extractors (and explicit Ramsey ... more >>>
