Abstract:

We study the arithmetic complexity of iterated matrix multiplication. We show that any multilinear homogeneous depth-4 arithmetic formula computing the product of $d$ generic matrices of size $n times n$, $mathrm{IMM}_{n,d}$, has size $n^{Omega(sqrt{d})}$ as long as $d = n^{O(1)}$. This improves the result of Nisan and Wigderson [Comput. ...More
