A Quantitative Version of the Gibbard-Satterthwaite Theorem for Three Alternatives
The Gibbard-Satterthwaite theorem states that every non-dictatorial election rule among at least three alternatives can be strategically manipulated. We prove a quantitative versi...

An Expansion Tester for Bounded Degree Graphs
We consider the problem of testing graph expansion (either vertex or edge) in the bounded degree model [10]. We give a property tester that given a graph with degree bound d, an ex...

Inapproximability Results for Maximum Edge Biclique, Minimum Linear Arrangement, and Sparsest Cut
We consider the Minimum Linear Arrangement problem and the (Uniform) Sparsest Cut problem. So far, these two notorious NP-hard graph problems have resisted all attempts to prove in...

A Combinatorial Construction of Almost-Ramanujan Graphs Using the Zig-Zag Product
Reingold, Vadhan and Wigderson [21] introduced the graph zig-zag product. This product combines a large graph and a small graph into one graph, such that the resulting graph inher...

Self-Improving Algorithms
We investigate ways in which an algorithm can improve its expected performance by fine-tuning itself automatically with respect to an arbitrary, unknown input distribution. We gi...

The Chow Parameters Problem
Abstract. In the 2nd Annual FOCS (1961), Chao-Kong Chow proved that every Boolean threshold function is uniquely determined by its degree-0 and degree-1 Fourier coefficients. These...

Black-Box Constructions of Protocols for Secure Computation
In this paper, we study the question of whether or not it is possible to construct protocols for general secure computation in the setting of malicious adversaries and no honest m...

The Complexity of Early Deciding Set Agreement
Set agreement, where processors decisions constitute a set of outputs, is notoriously harder to analyze than consensus where the decisions are restricted to a single output. This ...
