The Fourier Entropy-Influence conjecture for certain classes of Boolean functions

Presented by: 
R O'Donnell [Carnegie Mellon]
Monday 28th March 2011 - 14:00 to 15:00
INI Seminar Room 1
In this talk we report some progress on Friedgut and Kalai's "Fourier Entropy-Influence Conjecture". We verify the conjecture for symmetric functions, read-once decision trees, and certain generalizations of these classes.

Joint work with John Wright and Yuan Zhou of Carnegie Mellon University.
