Abstract:

Let $f:\{0,1\}^n \to \{0,1\}$ be a boolean function. Its associated XOR function is the two-party function $f_\oplus(x,y) = f(x \oplus y)$.
We show that, up to polynomial factors, the deterministic communication complexity of $f_{\oplus}$ is equal to the parity decision tree complexity of $f$.
This relies on a novel technique of entropy reduction for protocols, combined with existing techniques in Fourier analysis and additive combinatorics.
