The Pattern Matrix Method

  • Published 2016


In this paper we give a self-contained proof of Sherstov’s pattern matrix method. This theorem combines two main ideas—an extension of the discrepancy method known as the generalized discrepancy method and the notion of dual polynomials—with the techniques of matrix norms, Fourier analysis, and approximate degree. All together, this results in lower bounds… (More)
