Abstract:Distributed proofs are mechanisms enabling the nodes of a network to collectively and efficiently check the correctness of Boolean predicates on the structure of the network (e.g. having a specific diameter), or on data-structures distributed over the nodes (e.g. a spanning tree). We consider well known mechanisms consisting of two components: a prover assigning a certificate to each node, and a distributed algorithm called verifier that is in charge of verifying the distributed proof formed by the collection … Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
