Recently Efremenko showed locally-decodable codes of sub-exponential

length. That result showed that these codes can handle up to

$\frac{1}{3} $ fraction of errors. In this paper we show that the

same codes can be locally unique-decoded from error rate

$\half-\alpha$ for any $\alpha>0$ and locally list-decoded from

error rate $1-\alpha$ ...

We show a generic, simple way to amplify the error-tolerance of locally decodable codes.

Specifically, we show how to transform a locally decodable code that can tolerate a constant fraction of errors

to a locally decodable code that can recover from a much higher error-rate. We also show how to ...

In this paper we extend the notion of list decoding to the setting of interactive communication and study its limits. In particular, we show that any protocol can be encoded, with a constant rate, into a list-decodable protocol which is resilient

to a noise rate of up to $1/2-\varepsilon$, ...

A stochastic code is a pair of encoding and decoding procedures $(Enc,Dec)$ where $Enc:\{0,1\}^k \times \{0,1\}^d \to \{0,1\}^n$, and a message $m \in \{0,1\}^k$ is encoded by $Enc(m,S)$ where $S \from \{0,1\}^d$ is chosen uniformly by the encoder. The code is $(p,L)$-list-decodable against a class $\mathcal{C}$ of ``channel functions'' $C:\{0,1\}^n ... more >>>

In this work, we show new and improved error-correcting properties of folded Reed-Solomon codes and multiplicity codes. Both of these families of codes are based on polynomials over finite fields, and both have been the sources of recent advances in coding theory. Folded Reed-Solomon codes were the first explicit constructions ... more >>>

We continue the study of list recovery properties of high-rate tensor codes, initiated by Hemenway, Ron-Zewi, and Wootters (FOCS'17). In that work it was shown that the tensor product of an efficient (poly-time) high-rate globally list recoverable code is {\em approximately} locally list recoverable, as well as globally list recoverable ... more >>>

We give a linear-time erasure list-decoding algorithm for expander codes. More precisely, let $r > 0$ be any integer. Given an inner code $\cC_0$ of length $d$, and a $d$-regular bipartite expander graph $G$ with $n$ vertices on each side, we give an algorithm to list-decode the expander code $\cC ... more >>>
