And cheers his soul with, "All is well!
Go on! I will not fail."

And sunk upon that rugged rock,
When a voice came near, that roused him,...

Its little oracles, from which the woods
Know when to don their ample blossomings,
And flush the stillness of their solitudes.

Give the light wings of melody to words—
Words sweet as are the lips from whence they flow
In murmurings passionate with joy or woe?
When will the oracle that dwells in thee
Speak forth in melody?

In science:
The latter property can be satisﬁed using practical functions, such as HMAC so far, and then KHk () does not need to be a random oracle.
Pretty-Simple Password-Authenticated Key-Exchange Protocol
If the state sequence of G is not pseudorandom, then the sequence ~c can be distinguished from pseudorandom noise by considering hf , g i ⋆ ~c, and looking at the state sequence of G . (3) This is proved as in Theorem 4.3(2); the only difference is in the deﬁnition of Oracle 3.
Guaranteeing the diversity of number generators
The second oracle is reliable, and corresponds to applying the operator H ⊗n .
Parrondo Games and Quantum Algorithms
Quality of Solutions: Given the oracle, n, m, ω , L, and ǫ > 0, our algorithms return ǫ-approximate solutions.
Randomized Rounding without Solving the Linear Program
Each iteration requires O(log m) time and O(m) operations (on an EREWPRAM), plus one oracle call.
Randomized Rounding without Solving the Linear Program
We assume that the oracle returns only elements of V .

Towards a practical, theoretically sound algorithm for random generation in finite groups
We wish to use this oracle in order to deﬁne a random permutation Q such that: (1) Q is a random element of the space of all permutations which have the same cycle structure as σ . (2) Q is a fast forward permutation.
Permutation graphs, fast forward permutations, and sampling the cycle structure of a permutation
Here by pseudorandom permutation we mean that the resulting permutation is diﬃcult to distinguish from a truly random permutation using a limited number (under some reasonable deﬁnition of “limited”) of calls to the oracle.
Permutation graphs, fast forward permutations, and sampling the cycle structure of a permutation
This oracle accepts queries of the form (x, i) ∈ V × {1, −1}, and constructs a partial permutation graph on V as follows.
Permutation graphs, fast forward permutations, and sampling the cycle structure of a permutation
Output: If one of the oracle responses introduced a cycle, the distinguisher outputs 1.
