For every function f : X Y !f0;1g, D(f) = O(N0(f)N1(f)): Proof. We are concerned with ideas circling around the PHcc-vs.-PSPACEcc problem, a long-standing open problem in structural communi-cation complexity, first posed in Babai et al. [12, 13, 6, 15]) on communication complexity.2 The theme of communication complexity lower bounds also provides a convenient excuse to take a guided tour of numerous models, problems, and algorithms that are central to modern research in the theory of algorithms The first section starts with the basic definitions following mainly the notations of the book written by E. Kushilevitz and N. Nisan. We refer the reader to Kushilevitz & Nisan (1997) for an excellent introduction. We rst give an example exhibiting the largest gap known. © Cambridge University Press www.cambridge.org Cambridge University Press 978-0-521-02983-4 - Communication Complexity Eyal Kushilevitz and Noam Nisan On Rank vs. Communication Complexity Noam Nisan y Avi Wigderson z Abstract This paper concerns the open problem of Lov asz and Saks re-garding the relationship between the communication complexity of a boolean function and the rank of the associated matrix. In the second section I summarize the well-known lower bound methods and prove the exact complexity of certain functions. A course offered at Rutgers University (Spring 2010).

Communication Complexity Communication complexity concerns the following scenario. We then prove two related theorems.

Compression and Direct Sums in Communication Complexity Anup rao University of Washington [Barak, Braverman, Chen, R.] [Braverman, R.] Thursday, September 2, 2010 (e.g. Theorem 9. 2 Since exact e¢ciency in the discretized problem still requires the communication of (discrete) Lindahl prices, we are There are two players with unlimited computational power, each of whom holds ann bit input, say x and y. Neither knows the other’s input, and they wish to collaboratively compute f(x,y) where functionf: {0,1}n×{0,1}n →{0,1} is known to both.
