Title: Shifted partial derivatives in arithmetic circuit complexity

Speaker: Srikanth Srinivasan, IIT Bombay

Abstract: We introduce a recent method of proving lower bounds on the sizes of arithmetic circuits introduced by Kayal. We preview this technique for proving lower bounds for expressing a monomial as a sum of powers of low-degree polynomials.
