Ke Yang
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We study the problem of non-interactive correlation distillation (NICD). Suppose Alice and Bob each has a string, denoted by A = a 0 a 1 · · · a n−1 and B = b 0 b 1 · · · b n−1 , respectively.  ...  Alice and Bob wish to "distill" the correlation non-interactively, i.e., they wish to each apply a function to their strings, and output one bit, denoted by X and Y , such that Prob [X = Y ] can be made  ...  Acknowledgment The author thanks Luis von Ahn, Manuel Blum, Ning Hu, Joe Kilian, John Langford, and Steven Rudich for helpful discussions, and for Ueli Maurer and Avi Wigderson for providing the references  ...
