Implications of UGC For many basic optimization problems, it is NP-hard to beat current algorithms (based on simple LP or SDP relaxations) Examples: V ERTEX C OVER [Khot-Regev’03], M AX C UT [Khot-Kindler-Mossel-O’Donnell’04, Mossel-O’Donnell-Oleszkiewicz’05], every M AX C SP [Raghavendra’08], …

31
“higher-order Cheeger bound” It would suffice to show:

32
“higher-order Cheeger bound” It would suffice to show: collision probability of t-step random walk from i Suffices local Cheeger bound

33
“higher-order Cheeger bound” It would suffice to show: “A Markov chain with many large eigenvalues cannot mix locally everywhere” collision probability of t-step random walk from i Suffices
