Weakening Assumptions for Deterministic Subexponential Time Non-Singular Matrix Completion

Maurice Jansen
Kabanets and Impagliazzo \cite{KaIm04} show how to decide the circuit polynomial identity testing problem (CPIT) in deterministic subexponential time, assuming hardness of some explicit multilinear polynomial family $\{f_m\}_{m \geq 1}$ for arithmetic circuits. In this paper, a special case of CPIT is considered, namely non-singular matrix completion ($\NSMC$) under a low-individual-degree promise. For this subclass of problems it is shown how to obtain the same deterministic time bound, using a weaker assumption in terms of...
