Hardness of Learning Halfspaces with Noise
Learning an unknown halfspace (also called a perceptron) from labeled examples is one of the classic problems in machine learning. In the noise-free case, when a halfspace consist...

A simple condition implying rapid mixing of single-site dynamics on spin systems
Spin systems are a general way to describe local interactions between nodes in a graph. In statistical mechanics, spin systems are often used as a model for physical systems. In c...

How to Play Unique Games Using Embeddings
In this paper we present a new approximation algorithm for Unique Games. For a Unique Game with n vertices and k states (labels), if a (1 − ε) fraction of all constraints is sa...

Succinct Non-Interactive Zero-Knowledge Proofs with Preprocessing for LOGSNP
Let Λ : {0, 1}n ×{0, 1}m → {0, 1} be a Boolean formula of size d, or more generally, an arithmetic circuit of degree d, known to both Alice and Bob, and let y ∈ {0, 1}m be a...

Input-Indistinguishable Computation
We put forward a first definition of general secure computation that, without any trusted set-up, • handles an arbitrary number of concurrent executions; and • is implementa...

A Local Switch Markov Chain on Given Degree Graphs with Application in Connectivity of Peer-to-Peer Networks
We study a switch Markov chain on regular graphs, where switches are allowed only between links that are at distance 3; we call this the Flip. The motivation for studying the Flip...
