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.

Conspiracies between Learning Algorithms, Circuit Lower Bounds and Pseudorandomness

We prove several results giving new and stronger connections between learning theory, circuit complexity and pseudorandomness. Let C be any typical class of Boolean circuits, and C[s(n)] denote n-variable C-circuits of size at most s(n). We show:

Pseudodeterministic Constructions in Subexponential Time

We study {\it pseudodeterministic constructions}, i.e., randomized algorithms which output the {\it same solution} on most computation paths. We establish unconditionally that there is an infinite sequence $\{p_n\}_{n \in \mathbb{N}}$ of increasing primes and a randomized algorithm $A$ running in expected sub-exponential time such that for each $n$, on input ... more >>>

Almost-Polynomial Ratio ETH-Hardness of Approximating Densest $k$-Subgraph

In the Densest $k$-Subgraph problem, given an undirected graph $G$ and an integer $k$, the goal is to find a subgraph of $G$ on $k$ vertices that contains maximum number of edges. Even though the state-of-the-art algorithm for the problem achieves only $O(n^{1/4 + \varepsilon})$ approximation ratio (Bhaskara et al., ... more >>>
