Roland Grappe
Extended formulations, non-negative factorizations, and randomized communication protocols

Coauthors: Yuri Faenza, Samuel Fiorini, Tiwary Hans Raj


We show that the binary logarithm of the non-negative rank of a non-negative matrix is, up to small constants, equal to the minimum complexity of a randomized communication protocol computing the matrix in expectation.
We use this connection to prove new conditional lower bounds on the sizes of extended formulations, in particular, for perfect matching polytopes.
