The Complexity of Bit Retrieval
Abstract
Bit retrieval is the problem of reconstructing a periodic binary sequence from its periodic autocorrelation, with applications in cryptography and xray crystallography. After defining the problem, with and without noise, we describe and compare various algorithms for solving it. A geometrical constraint satisfaction algorithm, relaxedreflectreflect, is currently the best algorithm for noisy bit retrieval.
