List-Decodability of Structured Ensembles of Codes (Invited Talk)

LIPIcs-MFCS-2020-3.pdf (0.4 MB)


What combinatorial properties are satisfied by a random subspace over a finite field? For example, is it likely that not too many points lie in any Hamming ball? What about any cube? In this talk, I will discuss the answer to these questions, along with a more general characterization of the properties that are likely to be satisfied by a random subspace. The motivation for this characterization comes from error correcting codes. I will discuss how to use this characterization to make progress on the questions of list-decoding and list-recovery for random linear codes, and also to establish the list-decodability of random Low Density Parity-Check (LDPC) codes.
This talk is based on the works [Mosheiff et al., 2019] and [Guruswami et al., 2020], which are joint works with Venkatesan Guruswami, Ray Li, Jonathan Mosheiff, Nicolas Resch, Noga Ron-Zewi, and Shashwat Silas.
