We show that any randomised Monte Carlo distributed algorithm for the Lovász local lemma requires Omega(log log n) communication rounds, assuming that it finds a correct assignment with high probability. Our result holds even in the special case of d = O(1), where d is the maximum degree of the dependency graph. By prior work, there are distributed(More)
In the subgraph-freeness problem, we are given a constant-size graph $H$, and wish to determine whether the network contains $H$ as a subgraph or not. The \emph{property-testing} relaxation of the problem only requires us to distinguish graphs that are $H$-free from graphs that are $\epsilon$-far from $H$-free, meaning an $\epsilon$-fraction of their edges(More)
In this paper we initiate the study of property testing in simultaneous and non-simultaneous multi-party communication complexity, focusing on testing triangle-freeness in graphs. We consider the $\textit{coordinator}$ model, where we have $k$ players receiving private inputs, and a coordinator who receives no input; the coordinator can communicate with all(More)
