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.

Given a boolean function $f : \{0, 1\}^n \rightarrow \{0, 1\}$ define the function $f \circ \mathsf{XOR}$ on $2n$ bits by $f \circ \mathsf{XOR} (x_1, \dots, x_n, y_1, \dots, y_n) = f(x_1 \oplus y_1, \dots, x_n \oplus y_n)$. Such a function is cal

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)

Many real-world networks such as the ones arising out of facebook and twitter, webpages and hyperlinks etc. evolve with the passage of time.

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.

In Shannon's classical rate distortion problem, an encoder compresses data from a source into a message and sends it losslessly to the decoder.
