We show that the deterministic multiparty communication complexity of set disjointness for $k$ parties on a universe of size $n$ is $\Omega(n/4^k)$. We also simplify Sherstov's proof

showing an $\Omega(\sqrt{n}/(k2^k))$ lower bound for the randomized communication complexity of set disjointness.

The ExactlyN problem in the number-on-forehead (NOF) communication setting asks $k$ players, each of whom can see every input but their own, if the $k$ input numbers add up to $N$. Introduced by Chandra, Furst and Lipton in 1983, ExactlyN is important for its role in understanding the strength of ... more >>>
