We study the decomposition of multivariate polynomials as sums of powers of linear forms. We give a randomized algorithm for the following problem: If a homogeneous polynomial f ∈ K[x1, ..., xn] (where K ⊆ C) of degree d is given as a blackbox, decide whether it can be written as a linear combination of d-th powers of linearly independent complex linear forms. The main novel features of the algorithm are: • For d = 3, we improve by a factor of n on the running time from the algorithm in [KS20… 
Derandomization and absolute reconstruction for sums of powers of linear forms
An algorithm for the following problem: given a homogeneous polynomial of degree 3, decide whether it can be written as a sum of cubes of linearly independent linear forms with complex coefficients to solve the decomposition of multivariate polynomials as sums of powers of linear forms.


Polynomial Equivalence Problems for Sum of Affine Powers
Polynomial time black-box algorithms that find the decomposition with the smallest value of s for an input polynomial f in situations where s is small enough compared to the number of variables or to the exponents ei are proposed.
Reconstruction Algorithms for Sums of Affine Powers
This paper proposes algorithms that find the smallest decomposition of f in the first model (sums of affine powers) for an input polynomial f given in dense representation using the Waring decomposition and Sparsest Shift models.
Reconstruction of Full Rank Algebraic Branching Programs
At its core, the algorithm exploits a connection between the irreducible invariant subspaces of the Lie algebra of the group of symmetries of a polynomial f that is equivalent to IMMw, d and the “layer spaces” of a full rank ABP computing f.
Interpolation of depth-3 arithmetic circuits with two multiplication gates
The proof technique is new and relies on the factorization algorithm for multivariate black-box polynomials, on lower bounds on the length of linear locally decodable codes with 2 queries, and on a theorem regarding the structure of identically zero depth-3 circuits with four multiplication gates.
Reconstruction algorithms for low-rank tensors and depth-3 multilinear circuits
The first efficient algorithm for computing the tensor rank and for finding the optimal tensor decomposition as a sum of rank-one tensors when then input is a constant-rank tensor is obtained.
Determinant Equivalence Test over Finite Fields and over Q
This work gives a randomized poly(n,log |F|) time determinant equivalence test over finite fields F (under mild restrictions on the characteristic and size of F) and gives an efficient randomized reduction from factoring square-free integers to determinant equivalent test for quadratic forms over Q.
Quantum Complexity of Testing Group Commutativity
A quite optimal quantum algorithm is constructed for the problem of testing the commutativity of a black-box group specified by its k generators, whose complexity is in $\tilde{O}(k^{2/3})$.
Four lectures on polynomial absolute factorization
Polynomial factorization is one of the main chapters of Computer Algebra. Recently, significant progress was made on absolute factorization (i.e., over the complex field) of a multivariate polynomial

A new method is presented for factorization of bivariate polynomials over any field of characteristic zero or of relatively large characteristic. It is based on a simple partial differential equation
Reconstruction of non-degenerate homogeneous depth three circuits
The main contribution of this work is to formulate the following paradigm for efficiently handling addition gates and to successfully implement it for the class of homogeneous depth three circuits, which should lead to efficient reconstruction of many other subclasses of circuits for which the efficient reconstruction problem had hitherto looked unapproachable because of the presence of large fan-in addition gates.
