A 2-Source Almost-Extractor for Linear Entropy

  title={A 2-Source Almost-Extractor for Linear Entropy},
  author={Anup Rao},
We give an explicit construction of a function that is almost a 2-source extractor for linear entropy, it is a condenser where the output has almost full entropy. Given 2 sources with entropy δn, the output of the condenser is a distribution on m-bit strings that is ǫ-close to having min-entropy m− poly(log(1/ǫ), 1/δ), where here m is linear in n.
