Abstract:

We consider the size of circuits which perfectly hash
an arbitrary subset $S\!\subset\!\bitset^n$ of cardinality $2^k$
into $\bitset^m$.
We observe that, in general, the size of such circuits is
exponential in $2k-m$,
and provide a matching upper bound.

Abstract:

In TR96-041, Goldreich and Wigderson show their
upper bounds on perfect hashing circuits to be optimal, but
only up to a polynomial in n. In a recent paper, available as
<http://www.brics.dk/~bromille/Papers/err.ps>,
we look more closely at the dependence upon n and provide an
improved construction.

the lower bound was known

Comment:

We found out that, in contrast to our previous impression, the lower bound has been known.
In fact, our lower bound argument is analogous to the one presented in pages 128-129 of Mehlhorn's book,{\em Data Structures and Algorithms} (Vol.~1), EATCS Monographs on Theoretical Computer Science, 1984.
