We give a random class of lattices in Z n so that, if there is a probabilistic polynomial time algorithm which nds a short vector in a random lattice with a probability of at least 1 2 then there is also a probabilistic polynomial time algorithm which solves the following three lattice problems in every lattice in Z n with a probability exponentially close… (More)

We present a probabilistic public key cryptosystem which is secure unless the worst case of the following lattice problem can be solved in polynomial time: \Find the shortest nonzero vector in an n dimensional lattice L where the shortest vector v is unique in the sense that any other vector whose length is at most n c kvk is parallel to v."

We give a random class of lattices in Zn whose elements can be generated together with a short vector in them so that, if there is a probabilistic polynomial time algorithm which finds a short vector in a random lattice with a probability of at least ~ then there is also a probabilistic polynomial time algorithm which solves the following three lattice… (More)

The purpose of this paper is to describe a sorting network of size 0(n log n) and depth 0(log n).
A natural way of sorting is through consecutive halvings: determine the upper and lower halves of the set, proceed similarly within the halves, and so on. Unfortunately, while one can halve a set using only 0(n) comparisons, this cannot be done in less than… (More)

The subject of this article is <i>differential compression</i>, the algorithmic task of finding common strings between versions of data and using them to encode one version compactly by describing it as a set of changes from its companion. A main goal of this work is to present new differencing algorithms that (i) operate at a fine granularity (the atomic… (More)
