Weak random sources Distributions X on {0,1} n with some entropy: [vN] sources: n coins of unknown fixed bias [SV] sources : Pr[X i+1 =1|X 1 =b 1,…,X i =b i ] ( δ, 1-δ) Bit fixing: n coins, some good, some “sticky” ….. [Z] k-sources: H ∞ (X) ≥ k x Pr[X = x] 2 -k e.g X uniform with support 2 k {0,1} n X
