We continue the study of $k$-monotone Boolean functions in the property testing model, initiated by Canonne et al. (ITCS 2017). A function $f:\{0,1\}^n\rightarrow \{0,1\}$ is said to be $k$-monotone if it alternates between $0$ and $1$ at most $k$ times on every ascending chain. Such functions represent a natural generalization ... more >>>

A merger is a probabilistic procedure which extracts the

randomness out of any (arbitrarily correlated) set of random

variables, as long as one of them is uniform. Our main result is

an efficient, simple, optimal (to constant factors) merger, which,

for $k$ random vairables on $n$ bits each, uses a ...

The domination number of a graph $G=(V,E)$ is the minimum size of

a dominating set $U \subseteq V$, which satisfies that every

vertex in $V \setminus U$ is adjacent to at least one vertex in

$U$. The notion of a problem kernel refers to a polynomial time

algorithm that achieves ...

Assume that Alice and Bob, given an authentic channel, have a protocol where they end up with a bit S_A and S_B, respectively, such that with probability (1+eps)/2 these bits are equal. Further assume that conditioned on the event S_A = S_B no polynomial time bounded algorithm can predict the ... more >>>

A very important problem in quantum communication complexity is to show that there is, or isn?t, an exponential gap between randomized and quantum complexity for a total function. There are currently no clear candidate functions for such a separation; and there are fewer and fewer randomized lower bound techniques that ... more >>>

Assume that for almost all n Kolmogorov complexity

of a string x conditional to n is less than m.

We prove that in this case

there is a program of size m+O(1) that given any sufficiently large

n outputs x.

John Hitchcock, A. Pavan, Vinodchandran Variyam

We clarify the role of Kolmogorov complexity in the area of randomness extraction. We show that a computable function is an almost randomness extractor if and only if it is a Kolmogorov complexity

extractor, thus establishing a fundamental equivalence between two forms of extraction studied in the literature: Kolmogorov extraction

Solovay has proven that

the minimal length of a program enumerating a set A

is upper bounded by 3 times the absolute value of the

logarithm of the

probability that a random program will enumerate A.

It is unknown whether one can replace the constant

3 by a smaller constant.

We introduce the study of Kolmogorov complexity with error. For a

metric d, we define C_a(x) to be the length of a shortest

program p which prints a string y such that d(x,y) \le a. We

also study a conditional version of this measure C_{a,b}(x|y)

where the task is, given ...

Can complexity classes be characterized in terms of efficient reducibility to the (undecidable) set of Kolmogorov-random strings? Although this might seem improbable, a series of papers has recently provided evidence that this may be the case. In particular, it is known that there is a class of problems $C$ defined ... more >>>

A square matrix $V$ is called rigid if every matrix $V^\prime$ obtained by altering a small number of entries of $V$ has sufficiently high rank. While random matrices are rigid with high probability, no explicit constructions of rigid matrices are known to date. Obtaining such explicit matrices would have major ... more >>>
