On the statistical properties of Diffie–Hellman distributions
 MR 2001k:11258 Zbl 0997.11066
"... Let p be a large prime such that p−1 has some large prime factors, and let ϑ ∈ Z ∗ p be an rth power residue for all small factors of p − 1. The corresponding DiffieHellman (DH) distribution is (ϑ x, ϑ y, ϑ xy) where x, y are randomly chosen from Z ∗ p. A recently formulated assumption is that giv ..."

Let p be a large prime such that p−1 has some large prime factors, and let ϑ ∈ Z ∗ p be an rth power residue for all small factors of p − 1. The corresponding DiffieHellman (DH) distribution is (ϑ x, ϑ y, ϑ xy) where x, y are randomly chosen from Z ∗ p. A recently formulated assumption is that given p, ϑ of the above form it is infeasible to distinguish in reasonable time between DH distribution and triples of numbers chosen
On certain exponential sums and the distribution of DiffieHellman triples

"... Let g be a primitive root modulo a prime p. It is proved that the triples (gx,gy,gxy), x,y�1,…,p�1, are uniformly distributed modulo p in the sense of H. Weyl. This result is based on the following upper bound for double exponential sums. Let ε�0 be fixed. Then p−� x,y=� exp0 2πiagx�bgy�cgxy ..."

Uniform Circuits for Division: Consequences and Problems

Integer division has been known to lie in Puniform TC 0 since the mid1980's, and recently this was improved to L uniform TC 0 . At the time that the results in this paper were proved and submitted for conference presentation, it was unknown whether division lay in DLOGTIMEuniform TC 0 (also known as FOM). We obtain tight bounds on the uniformity required for division, by showing that division is complete for the complexity class FOM + POW obtained by augmenting FOM with a predicate for powering modulo small primes. We also show that, under a wellknown numbertheoretic conjecture (that there are many "smooth" primes), POW (and hence division) lies in FOM. Building on this work, Hesse has shown recently that division is in FOM [17]. The essential
Limits to List Decodability of Linear Codes

, 2002

We consider the problem of the best possible relation between the list decodability of a binary linear code and its minimum distance. We prove, under a widelybelieved numbertheoretic conjecture, that the classical "Johnson bound" gives, in general, the best possible relation between the list decoding radius of a code and its minimum distance. The analogous result is known to hold by a folklore random coding argument for the case of nonlinear codes, but the linear case is more subtle and has remained open.
Composition factors from the group ring and Artin's theorem on orders of simple groups

The integral group ring of a finite group determines the isomorphism type of the chief factors of the group. Two proofs are given, one of which applies Cameron's and Teague's generalisation of Artin's theorem on the orders of finite simple groups to the orders of characteristically simple groups. The generalisation states that a direct power of a finite simple group is determined by its order with the same two types of exception which Artin found. Its proof, given here in detail, adapts and makes explicit certain functions of a natural number variable which Artin used implicitly. These functions contribute to the argument through a series of tables which supply their values for the orders of finite simple groups. 1.

"... Abstract. We consider a family of isometric extensions of the full shift on p symbols (for p a prime) parametrized by a probability space. Using Heath– Brown’s work on the Artin conjecture, it is shown that for all but two primes p the set of limit points of the growth rate of periodic points is inf ..."

Abstract. We consider a family of isometric extensions of the full shift on p symbols (for p a prime) parametrized by a probability space. Using Heath– Brown’s work on the Artin conjecture, it is shown that for all but two primes p the set of limit points of the growth rate of periodic points is infinite almost surely. This shows in particular that the dynamical zeta function is not algebraic almost surely. 1.

We adapt Hooley's proof that the Generalized Riemann Hypothesis implies the Artin Conjecture for primitive roots to various other problems. We consider the sum p#x f (i p ) where i p is the index of 2 modulo p and f is a given function. In various cases we establish asymptotic formulas for such a sum and analyse the constants. While we claim no originality, we outline the method to approach this problem in a fairly general case.
