NP-Hardness of Coloring 2-Colorable Hypergraph with Poly-Logarithmically Many Colors

pdf-format:


Abstract

We give very short and simple proofs of the following statements: Given a 2-colorable 4-uniform hypergraph on n vertices, 1) It is NP-hard to color it with log^delta n colors for some delta>0. 2) It is quasi-NP-hard to color it with O({log^{1-o(1)} n}) colors. In terms of NP-hardness, it improves the result of Guruswam, Håstad and Sudani [SIAM Journal on Computing, 2002], combined with Moshkovitz-Raz [Journal of the ACM, 2010], by an `exponential' factor. The second result improves the result of Saket [Conference on Computational Complexity (CCC), 2014] which shows quasi-NP-hardness of coloring a 2-colorable 4-uniform hypergraph with O(log^gamma n) colors for a sufficiently small constant 1 >> gamma>0. Our result is the first to show the NP-hardness of coloring a c-colorable k-uniform hypergraph with poly-logarithmically many colors, for any constants c >= 2 and k >= 3.
