Designing a 1 vs. 5/8 Dictator Test Q: Why is Zwick’s 3CSP alg. stuck at 5/8? A: The “Not-Two” predicate: Linear/random: 5/8 SDP alg: 5/8

Designing a 1 vs. 5/8 Dictator Test Q: (Håstad01) 1 vs. 5/8+ hardness for NTW? A: (Our main thm.) Yes, assuming D-to-1 Conj. for any const. D < ∞.

33
Designing a 1 vs. 5/8 Dictator Test [Hås97] gave a 1− vs. 1/2+ Dictator Test for D-to-1, D arbitrary, using XOR. We give a 1 vs. 5/8+ Dictator Test for D-to-1, D constant, using NTW.

Håstad’s Dictator Test using XOR At a technical level… Håstad does direct Fourier Analysis. We sketch an Invariance Principle proof which works for D = O(1). (Have to reprove [MOO05,Mos08].)

Open technical problems 1.We need 1 vs. 2 −2 O(D 2 ) hardness for D-to-1. Probably could get away with 2 −poly(D). With 1/poly(D)? 2.Use D-to-1 for other problems. Max-NAE 3 with perfect completeness?
