Reminder Subject: TALK: Ofer Grossman: Bipartite Perfect matching in Pseudo-deterministic NC

Abstract: Pseudo-deterministic algorithms are randomized search algorithms that on different executions on the same input, output the same solution with high probability.

We will discuss how pseudo-deterministic algorithms bridge the gap between randomized search and decision problems for problems in P and in NC. Next, we will show a pseudo-deterministic NC algorithm for bipartite matching. Finally, we will show how pseudo-determinism can be used to save on random bits used by classical randomized algorithms.

Joint work with Shafi Goldwasser.
