CS Theory: Monotone Circuit Lower Bounds from Resolution

Speaker: Mika Göös, Post-Doctoral Fellow, Theory of Computation, John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Harvard University 

For any unsatisfiable CNF formula F that is hard to refute in the Resolution Proof System, we show that a "lifted" two-party version of F is hard to refute in any proof system whose lines are computed by efficient communication protocols - or, equivalently, that a monotone function associated with F has large monotone circuit complexity.
