Zero-Error Channel Capacity and Simulation Assisted by Non-Local Correlations

Toby S. Cubitt, Debbie Leung, William Matthews, Andreas Winter
2011 IEEE Transactions on Information Theory  
In the asymptotic case, shared randomness is shown to be just as powerful as arbitrary non-signalling correlations for noisy channel simulation, which is not true for the asymptotic zero-error capacities  ...  The most striking result of this kind is that entanglement can assist in zero-error communication, in stark contrast to the standard setting of communicaton with asymptotically vanishing error in which  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank Nicolas Brunner, Runyao Duan, Tsuyoshi Ito, Ashley Montanaro, Marcin Pawłowski, Paul Skrzypczyk and Stephanie Wehner for useful discussions.  ...

Lower Bounds on the Probability of Error for Classical and Classical-Quantum Channels

Marco Dalai
2013 IEEE Transactions on Information Theory  
As a result of this study, connections between the Lov\'asz theta function, the expurgated bound of Gallager, the cutoff rate of a classical channel and the sphere packing bound for classical-quantum channels  ...  The contribution of the paper goes in two main directions: i) extending classical bounds of Shannon, Gallager and Berlekamp to classical-quantum channels, and ii) proposing a new framework for lower bounding  ...  There, the authors extend the algebraic definition of the Lovász theta function to consider what they call non-commutative graphs.  ...

Semidefinite Programming in Timetabling and Mutual-Exclusion Scheduling [article]

Jakub Marecek, Andrew J. Parkes
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In practice, we report encouraging computational results on random graphs, Knesser graphs, "forbidden intersection" graphs, the Toronto benchmark, and the International Timetabling Competition.  ...  We present SDP relaxations for a variety of mutual-exclusion scheduling and timetabling problems, starting from a bound on the number of tasks executed within each period, which corresponds to graph colouring  ...  Random Graphs Next, we show that the same behaviour can be observed on a large sample of random graphs.  ...

Probabilistic refinement of the asymptotic spectrum of graphs [article]

Péter Vrana
2019 arXiv   pre-print
the Lovász number and the fractional Haemers bounds are in fact elements of the asymptotic spectrum (spectral points).  ...  He used it to obtain a dual characterization of the Shannon capacity of graphs as the minimum of the evaluation function over the asymptotic spectrum and noted that several known upper bounds, including  ...  The probabilistic refinement of the Lovász theta number was defined and studied by Marton in [Mar93] via a non-asymptotic formula.  ...

How to hide a clique? [article]

Uriel Feige, Vadim Grinberg
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We show that for the standard setting of the parameters of the problem, namely, a clique of size k = √(n) planted in a random G(n, 1/2) graph, the known polynomial time algorithms can be extended (in a  ...  In the well known planted clique problem, a clique (or alternatively, an independent set) of size k is planted at random in an Erdos-Renyi random G(n, p) graph, and the goal is to design an algorithm that  ...  Acknowledgements The work of Uriel Feige is supported in part by the Israel Science Foundation (grant No. 1388/16).  ...

Erdős-Ko-Rado for random hypergraphs: asymptotics and stability [article]

Marcelo M. Gauy and Hiêp Hàn and Igor C. Oliveira
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We investigate the asymptotic version of the Erd\H{o}s-Ko-Rado theorem for the random $k$-uniform hypergraph $\mathcal{H}^k(n,p)$. For $2 \leq k(n) \leq n/2$, let $N=\binom{n}k$ and $D=\binom{n-k}k$.  ...  This lower bound on $p$ is asymptotically best possible for $k=\Theta(n)$. For this range of $k$ and $p$, we are able to show stability as well. A different behavior occurs when $k = o(n)$.  ...  Many thanks go to Oded Regev and Ehud Friedgut for sharing a preliminary version of their paper.  ...

Discrete mathematics: methods and challenges [article]

Noga Alon
2002 arXiv   pre-print
One of the main reasons for this growth is the tight connection between Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science, and the rapid development of the latter.  ...  This is a survey of two of the main general techniques that played a crucial role in the development of modern combinatorics; algebraic methods and probabilistic methods.  ...  The asymptotic behavior of these numbers for graphs of chromatic number at least 3 is well known, see, e.g., [15] .  ...

Metrics for sparse graphs [article]

B. Bollobas, O. Riordan
2009 arXiv   pre-print
A different connection between kernels and random graphs arises in the recent work of Borgs, Chayes, Lovász, Sós, Szegedy and Vesztergombi.  ...  Roughly speaking, there is one model for each kernel, i.e., each symmetric measurable function from [0,1]^2 to the non-negative reals, although the details are much more complicated.  ...  The authors would like to thank an anonymous referee for many detailed suggestions improving the presentation of the paper.  ...

In the last decade many important applications of eigenvalues and eigenvectors of graphs in combinatorial optimization were discovered.  ...  The number and importance of these results is so fascinating that it makes sense to present this survey.  ...  Juhász, who also analysed the behaviour of the theta-function on random graphs, and introduced the eigenvalues in the clustering.  ...

Hence, our communication protocol is similar to the Holevo-Schumacher-Westmoreland protocol. We reformulate the problem of finding the QZEC in terms of graph theory.  ...  In particular, we exhibit a quantum channel for which we claim the QZEC can only be reached by a set of non-orthogonal states.  ...  Lovász theta function The redefinition of the zero-error capacity in terms of graph has yielded interesting constructions in combinatorics and graph theory.  ...
