Monotonicity Testing and Shortest-Path Routing on the Cube

We study the problem of monotonicity testing over the hypercube. As
previously observed in several works, a positive answer to a natural question about routing
properties of the hypercube network would imply the existence of efficient
monotonicity testers. In particular, if any $\ell$ disjoint source-sink pairs
on the directed hypercube ... more >>>

Alternation, Sparsity and Sensitivity : Bounds and Exponential Gaps

Revisions: 1

The well-known Sensitivity Conjecture regarding combinatorial complexity measures on Boolean functions states that for any Boolean function $f:\{0,1\}^n \to \{0,1\}$, block sensitivity of $f$ is polynomially related to sensitivity of $f$ (denoted by $\mathbf{sens}(f)$). From the complexity theory side, the XOR Log-Rank Conjecture states that for any Boolean function, $f:\{0,1\}^n ... more >>>

Poly-time blackbox identity testing for sum of log-variate constant-width ROABPs

Blackbox polynomial identity testing (PIT) affords 'extreme variable-bootstrapping' (Agrawal et al, STOC'18; PNAS'19; Guo et al, FOCS'19). This motivates us to study log-variate read-once oblivious algebraic branching programs (ROABP). We restrict width of ROABP to a constant and study the more general sum-of-ROABPs model. We give the first poly($s$)-time blackbox ... more >>>
