f g hard on fraction of inputs hard on 1- fraction of inputs

f s f is δ -hard (for size s), if every circuit (of size s) fails to compute f on δ inputs. 2 n {0,1} n

Intuition If on a random x one can compute f(x) on < ( 1- ) fraction of inputs, then on k independent random ( x 1,…, x k ), one can compute all ( f(x 1 ),…, f(x k ) ) on < ( 1- ) k exp(- k) fraction of inputs.

For f: U R, its k-wise DP function is f k : U k R k where: f k ( x 1, …, x k ) = ( f(x 1 ), …, f(x k ) )

If: f is - hard ( for size s ) Then: f k is exp(- k)- hard ( for size s * poly(, ) ) 2 n {0,1} n 2 n {0,1} nk

Given: circuit C ( of size s * poly(, ) ) exp(- k)-computing f k Construct: circuit C ( of size s ) ( 1- )-computing f. 2 n {0,1} nk 2 n {0,1} n

Proof: Pick L = 1/ functions f 1, …, f L. Partition inputs into L blocks of size each. Define C to agree with f i k on block i. Theorem: To decode from agreement, need the list size (1/ ).

Then: There are many ( ² /2) flowers determined by S=(A,B) that are nice. A flower is nice if it has correct core ( C(S) = f k (S) ), many ( /2) consistent petals. Also: In a random nice flower, almost all consistent petals are mostly correct (C ¼ f k ) B B4B4 AA B2B2 B3B3 B1B1 B5B5 Assume: C ² -agrees with f k Consistency Correctness
