Average-Case Complexity is a radical survey of the average-case complexity of difficulties in NP. The examine of the average-case complexity of intractable difficulties begun within the Nineteen Seventies, influenced by way of specific functions: the advancements of the rules of cryptography and the quest for ways to "cope" with the intractability of NP-hard difficulties. This survey appears at either, and usually examines the present country of data on average-case complexity. Average-Case Complexity is meant for students and graduate scholars within the box of theoretical laptop technology. The reader also will find a variety of effects, insights, and facts thoughts whose usefulness is going past the research of average-case complexity.

Sample text

Rm(n) . Here, m(n) is the running time of the algorithm that computes fDn , and we assume without loss of generality (for technical reasons) that m is injective. It is easy to check that each sample is produced with the correct probability. Observe that the sampler S is efficiently invertible in the following sense: There exists an algorithm I that on input x ∈ Supp(Dn ) runs in time polynomial in n and outputs a uniformly random r ∈ {0, 1}m(n) conditioned on S(n; r) = x (meaning that S(n) outputs x when using r for its internal coin tosses).

Some observations 39 Let M be the non-deterministic Turing machine that, on input y, accepts if and only if there exists a string x such that y = C(x) and x ∈ L. Since L is in NP, machine M can be implemented so that, on input C(x), where x is of length n, M runs in time at most q(n), where q is a polynomial. We can now describe the reduction. On input x and parameter n, the reduction outputs the instance (M, C(x), 1t(x) ) of length N (n); here, N (n) is chosen large enough so that when |C(x)| ≤ m(n), we have t(x) ≥ q(n) (for instance, N (n) = m(n) + q(n) + 2 log m(n) + 2 log q(n) + O(1) suffices).

Proof. Suppose that the running time tA of A satisfies PrDn [tA (x; n) ≥ t] ≤ nc t−ε , for some constants c, ε and for every sufficiently large n. Define δ = ε/(c + 2). 2. Heuristic and errorless algorithms 23 nc t−ε/δ ≤n+ t≥n nc t−(c+2) =n+ t≥n t−2 ≤n+ t = n + O(1). 4. For the other implication, suppose EDn [tA (x; n)ε ] = O(n). Then, by Markov’s inequality PrDn [tA (x; n) ≥ t] = PrDn [tA (x; n)ε ≥ tε ] ≤ EDn [tA (x; n)ε ] = O(nt−ε ). tε We now describe a third equivalent way to think of average polynomial time.
