On the Power of Two-points Based Sampling

  title={On the Power of Two-points Based Sampling},
  author={Oded Goldreich},
| The purpose of this note is to present a new sampling technique and to demonstrate some of its properties. The new technique consists of picking two elements at random, and de-terministically generating (from them) a long sequence of pairwise independent elements. The sequence is guarantees to intersect, with high probability, any set of non-negligible density.
