* We construct a two-source extractor for quasi-logarithmic min-entropy. That is, an extractor for two independent $n$-bit sources with min-entropy $\widetilde{O}(\log{n})$. Our construction is optimal up to $\mathrm{poly}(\log\log{n})$ factors and improves upon a recent result by Ben-Aroya, Doron, and Ta-Shma (ECCC'16) that can handle ... more >>>
We define a concept class ${\cal F}$ to be time-space hard (or memory-samples hard) if any learning algorithm for ${\cal F}$ requires either a memory of size super-linear in $n$ or a number of samples super-polynomial in $n$, where $n$ is the length of one sample.
A recent work shows ... more >>>
We study the following basic problem called Bi-Covering. Given a graph $G(V,E)$, find two (not necessarily disjoint) sets $A\subseteq V$ and $B\subseteq V$ such that $A\cup B = V$ and that every edge $e$ belongs to either the graph induced by $A$ or to the graph induced by $B$. The ... more >>>
