Jieming Mao will present his Generals on May 8, 2015 at 1:30pm in CS 401
The members of his committee are: Mark Braverman(adviser), Sanjeev Arora, and Zeev Dvir.
Everyone is invited to attend his talk, and those faculty wishing to remain for the oral exam following are welcome to do so. His abstract and reading list follow below.
In this talk, I will focus on presenting the paper "Simulating Noisy Channel Interaction". This is joint work with Mark Braverman. In the paper, we show that T rounds of interaction over the binary symmetric channel BSC 1 / 2 − ε with feedback can be simulated with O(ε 2 T) rounds of interaction over a noiseless channel. We also introduce a more general “energy cost” model of interaction over a noisy channel. We show energy cost to be equivalent to external information complexity, which implies that our simulation results are unlikely to carry over to energy complexity. Our main technical innovation is a self-reduction from simulating a noisy channel to simulating a slightly-less-noisy channel, which may have other applications in the area of interactive compression.
