CIS6930: PCPs and Inapproximability - Homework 2 Due at the beginning of the lecture on 11-24-2009 . No late assignment will be accepted. Do the following 4 required problems, 10 pts each: Problem 1 . Using the gap-preserving reduction form Label Cover, show that for every ǫ > 0, there is no (1 - ǫ ) ln n approximation algorithm exists for the set cover problem unless NP DTIME ( n O (loglog n ) where n is the size of the universe. Problem 2 . Use the special graph to show Problem 2 (Saving Random Bits). [Look at the lecture note Expanders.pdf page 3 and 4.] Problem 3 . Prove Theorem 1 in the lecture note. (That is: For all
