We give an example of a boolean function whose information complexity is exponentially smaller than its communication complexity. This was first proven recently by Ganor, Kol and Raz [15] and our work gives a simpler proof of the same result. In the course of this simplification, we make several new contributions: we introduce a new communication lower bound technique, the notion of a fooling distribution, which allows us to separate information and communication complexity, and we also give a… CONTINUE READING
