In a recent work, O'Donnell, Servedio and Tan (STOC 2019) gave explicit pseudorandom generators (PRGs) for arbitrary $m$-facet polytopes in $n$ variables with seed length poly-logarithmic in $m,n$, concluding a sequence of works in the last decade, that was started by Diakonikolas, Gopalan, Jaiswal, Servedio, Viola (SICOMP 2010) and Meka, ... more >>>

We show that for sufficiently large $n\geq 1$ and $d=C n^{3/4}$ for some universal constant $C>0$, a random spectrahedron with matrices drawn from Gaussian orthogonal ensemble has Gaussian surface area $\Theta(n^{1/8})$ with high probability.
