Logical relations are proof techniques that can be used to prove properties about languages like normalization, type safety, program equivalence and are closed under elimination.

A boolean circuit is a natural model of computation for Boolean functions. Size and Depth of a circuit are two measures of complexity of the circuit.

We initiate the study of property testing of submodularity on the boolean hypercube. Submodular functions come up in a variety of applications in combinatorial optimization.

Suppose we want to transmit messages across a noisy channel to a receiver. The maximum rate of transmission such that the receiver may recover the original message without errors (i.e., zero error) is called zero error capacity of the channel.

In this talk, we will study the PhD-work of Risi Kondor in which he demonstrates how bispectrum invariants can be used to classify translated and rotated images.

A recent powerful method has been independently developed by Saxton and Thomason (2012) and by Balogh, Morris, Samotij (2014).

Suhail Sherif, TIFR

We look at the boolean function in which the input is a boolean matrix with the promise that either 2/3rd of its rows contain a 1 or 2/3rd of its rows do not contain a 1.

Discrete default intensity based or logit type models are commonly used as reduced form models for conditional default probabilities for corporate loans where this default probability depends upon macroeconomic as well as firm-specific covariates.

We discuss the notion of security in the multi-party computing protocols. We start with the simpler definition of standalone security.
