Guidance for question 4.2.
|Use randomized encoding to represent any function using a 3-degree polynomial over a finite field.|
More specifically, like mentioned in class, we can represent every function f(x) using a function g(x,r), such that:
- g is a 3-degree polynomial.
- f(x) can be deterministically derived from g(x,r), where r is uniform, with a negligible error. That is, g(x,r) is "a randomized encoding" of f(x).
More details can be found in the slides.

===== a forwarded message =====
We are organizing a summer school on Proof Techniques in Symmetric
Cryptography (SPOTNIQ) at the end of July in Bertinoro, Italy.
The goal is to cover recent trends in provable security for symmetric
cryptography. The target audience includes both theoretical and applied
The school webpage includes a preliminary list of speakers and topics:
