What We Have Here is a Failure to Communicate: A Communication Game and Applications to the Sensitivity Conjecture
John Chiarelli, Rutgers University

Abstract: The sensitivity conjecture is one of the core unresolved questions of computational complexity. In this talk, I will look at one angle that has been taken in tackling this problem, via a cooperative two-player game based on communication. I will also talk about conjectures made in that direction that ultimately failed due to particular counterexamples.
