In this talk we will look at $n$-variate polynomials that can be expressed as a small (poly$(n)$) sum of powers of linear polynomials. That is, polynomials that have efficient {\em depth-3-powering} circuits.

A threshold function on n bits is a function that can be represented as the sign of a linear function of its inputs, i.e. f(x) = sign(w_1 x_1 + ... w_n x_n + c)

A set of polynomials is said to be algebraically independent if there is no non-zero combination of them which is zero. Testing whether a given set of polynomials is algebraically independent efficiently is open in general.

We discuss a technique that provides a sufficient condition for establishing a Markov chain on the joint distribution.

A congestion game is a game where the cost of a player for using a resource depends on all the players using that resource.

Let $G$ be a directed graph on $n$ vertices (with two designated vertices $s$ and $t$) such that the edge weights of $G$ are real-valued linear functions of a parameter $\lambda$.

We consider election scenarios with incomplete information, a situation that arises often in practice. There are several models of incomplete information and accordingly, different notions of outcomes of such elections.

This talk addresses in the main the problem of secure control of networked cyber-physical systems, and, title notwithstanding, a digression into mm-wave networks that have quickly become of great topical interest since the FCC release of 10.85 GHz
