Pseudorandom Generators for Read-Once ACC^0

Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar II
Topic:Pseudorandom Generators for Read-Once ACC^0
Speaker:Srikanth Srinivasan
Date:Tuesday, April 24
Time/Room:10:30am - 12:30pm/S-101

We consider the problem of constructing pseudorandom generators for read-once circuits. We give an explicit construction of a pseudorandom generator for the class of read-once constant depth circuits with unbounded fan-in AND, OR, NOT and generalized modulo m gates, where m is an arbitrary fixed constant. The seed length of our generator is poly-logarithmic in the number of variables and the error. Joint work with Dmitry Gavinsky (NEC Labs) and Shachar Lovett (IAS).
