About the ECCC

What we do and why

The Electronic Colloquium on Computational Complexity is a new forum for the rapid and widespread interchange of ideas, techniques, and research in computational complexity. The purpose of this Colloquium is to use electronic media for scientific communication and discussions in the computational complexity community. The Electronic Colloquium on Computational Complexity (ECCC) welcomes papers, short notes and surveys with
  • relevance to the theory of computation,
  • clear mathematical profile and
  • strictly mathematical format.

Central topics

  • models of computation and their complexity,
  • trade-off results,
  • complexity bounds (with the emphasis on lower bounds).
      Specific areas including complexity issues are
    • combinatorics,
    • communication complexity,
    • cryptography,
    • combinatorial optimization,
    • complexity of learning algorithms,
    • logic.

Faster FPT Algorithm for Graph Isomorphism Parameterized by Eigenvalue Multiplicity

We give a $O^*(k^{O(k)})$ time isomorphism testing algorithm for graphs of eigenvalue multiplicity bounded by $k$ which improves on the previous
best running time bound of $O^*(2^{O(k^2/\log
k)})$.

Separation between Estimation and Approximation

We show (under standard assumptions) that there are NP optimization problems for which estimation is easier than approximation. Namely, one can estimate the value of the optimal solution within a ratio of $\rho$, but it is difficult to find a solution whose value is within $\rho$ of optimal.

Quantum lower bound for inverting a permutation with advice

Given a random permutation $f: [N] \to [N]$ as a black box and $y \in [N]$, we want to output $x = f^{-1}(y)$. Supplementary to our input, we are given classical advice in the form of a pre-computed data structure; this advice can depend on the permutation but \emph{not} on ... more >>>
