Example text

A two-line counting exercise shows that an infinite rooted (≤ d)-ary tree has at most (ed)n subtrees of size n. Therefore there are at most (ed)n witness trees of order n that have C as their root label. Since each of them may occur with a probability of at most 2−nk , the expected number of witness trees of size n that can occur is bounded by (ed2−k )n . Plugging in d and summing over all possible sizes n ≥ 1, this becomes a geometric series that converges to a constant. Hence, there is at most a constant expected number of valid witness trees rooted at C.

The idea now is to choose appropriate operations and such that ρ (f, S) is large with respect to the considered function f . In 1989, Razborov [33] has shown that the largest lower bound which can be obtained with the approximation method using the distance measure ρ for a Boolean function in Bn is of size Ω(n2 ). The proof given in [33] uses the fact that all elements of the model S are given for free. Hence, the proof cannot be applied to the approximation method which uses the weak distance measure ρ .

1 Trees with All Leaves Deep, But Few Leaves Close Below Any Node We consider binary trees where every node has either two or no children. In such a binary tree we say that a leaf v is -close to a node w if w is an ancestor of v, at distance at most from v. For k and d positive integers, we call a binary tree T a (k, d)-tree if (i) every leaf has depth2 at least k − 1 and (ii) for every node u of T there are at most d leaves (k − 1)-close to u; (from (i) it follows that every leaf is (k − 1)-close to exactly k nodes).
