Borja Balle and Gilles Barthe and Marco Gaboardi
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Differential privacy comes equipped with multiple analytical tools for the design of private data analyses.  ...  Furthermore, it introduces new tools, including advanced joint convexity and privacy profiles, which might be of independent interest.  ...  In particular, the proof of advanced joint convexity uses ideas from probabilistic couplings, and more specifically the maximal coupling construction (see Theorem 2 and its proof for more details).  ...
