# Explicit unique-neighbor expanders

@article{Alon2002ExplicitUE, title={Explicit unique-neighbor expanders}, author={Noga Alon and Michael R. Capalbo}, journal={The 43rd Annual IEEE Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science, 2002. Proceedings.}, year={2002}, pages={73-79} }

We present a simple, explicit construction of an infinite family F of bounded-degree 'unique-neighbor' expanders /spl Gamma/; i.e., there are strictly positive constants /spl alpha/ and /spl epsi/, such that all /spl Gamma/ = (X, E(/spl Gamma/)) /spl isin/ F satisfy the following property. For each subset S of X with no more than /spl alpha/|X| vertices, there are at least /spl epsi/|S| vertices in X/spl bsol/S that are adjacent in /spl Gamma/ to exactly one vertex in S. The construction of F…

A fast decoding algorithm is presented that can decode a constant fraction of errors in linear time given any vertex expansion (even if it is much smaller than 1/2) by using a stronger local code, and the fraction oferrors corrected almost doubles that of Viderman (2013).

The introduction and initial study of randomness conductors, a notion which generalizes extractors, expanders, condensers and other similar objects, is introduced and it is shown that the flexibility afforded by the conductor definition leads to interesting combinations of these objects, and to better constructions such as those above.
