Separation between Read-once Oblivious Algebraic Branching Programs (ROABPs) and Multilinear Depth Three Circuits

We show an exponential separation between two well-studied models of algebraic computation, namely read-once oblivious algebraic branching programs (ROABPs) and multilinear depth three circuits. In particular we show the following:

1. There exists an explicit $n$-variate polynomial computable by linear sized multilinear depth three circuits (with only two product gates) ... more >>>

Almost Cubic Bound for Depth Three Circuits in VP

Revisions: 3

In "An Almost Cubic Lower Bound for $\sum\prod\sum$ circuits in VP", [BLS16] present an infinite family of polynomials, $\{P_n\}_{n \in \mathbb{Z}^+}$, with $P_n$
on $N = \Theta(n polylog(n))$
variables with degree $N$ being in VP such that every
$\sum\prod\sum$ circuit computing $P_n$ is of size $\Omega\big(\frac{N^3}{2^{\sqrt{\log N}}}\big)$.
We ... more >>>
