Efficient Probabilistically Checkable Proofs and Applications to Approximation M. BELLARE* S. GOLDWASSERt C. LUNDi A. RUSSELL$ We construct multi-prover proof systems for NP which use only a constant number of provers to simultaneously achieve low error, low randomness and low answer size. As a consequence, we obtain asymptotic improvements to approximation hardness results for a wide range of optimization problems including minimum set cover, dominating set, maximum clique, chromatic number… CONTINUE READING
