Extractors and Condensers Extractors and condensers are basic notions in theoretical computer science (and in particular derandomization theory) that constitute the main technical tools that we use for our code constructions.
Capacity Achieving Codes From Randomness Condensers
The parameters m, m(cid:48) , , m − m(cid:48) , and r log q − m(cid:48) are called the input entropy, output entropy, error, the entropy loss and the overhead of the condenser, respectively. A condenser is explicit if it is polynomial-time computable, and linear if it is a linear function in the first argument.
Capacity Achieving Codes From Randomness Condensers
On the other hand, when the entropy loss m−m(cid:48) is zero, the condenser does not lose any of the source entropy and is therefore called a lossless condenser.
Capacity Achieving Codes From Randomness Condensers
We will use the shorthand (m, )-extractor for an m → m(cid:48) condenser with output length m(cid:48) and (m, )-lossless condenser for an m → m condenser.
