Foundations and Frontiers of Probabilistic Proofs
29 Jun 2020 - 10 Jul 2020 • Zurich, Switzerland
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
In recent years, such probabilistic proofs received much attention due to a new motivation, delegation of computation, which is the emphasis of this summer school. This paradigm admits ultra-fast protocols that allow one party to check the correctness of the computation performed by another, untrusted, party. These protocols have even been realized within recently-deployed technology, for example, as part of cryptographic constructions known as succinct non-interactive arguments of knowledge (SNARKs). This summer school will provide an introduction to the field of probabilistic proofs and the beautiful mathematics behind it, as well as prepare students for conducting cutting-edge research in this area.
