Sensitivity Conjecture and Log-Rank Conjecture for Functions with Small Alternating Numbers

Abstract

The Sensitivity Conjecture and the Log-rank Conjecture are among the most important and challenging problems in concrete complexity. Incidentally, the Sensitivity Conjecture is known to hold for monotone functions, and so is the Log-rank Conjecture for f(x and y) and f(x xor y) with monotone functions f, where and and xor are bit-wise AND and XOR , respectively. In this paper, we extend these results to functions f which alternate values for a relatively small number of times on any monotone path from 0^n to 1^n. These deepen our understandings of the two conjectures, and contribute to the recent line of research on functions with small alternating numbers.
