## Other documents

**Rate-splitting in the presence of multiple receivers**

Omar Fawzi, Ivan Savov

*arXiv:1207.0543, 2012*

**Uncertainty relations for multiple measurements with applications**

My PhD thesis (2012), on Uncertainty relations for multiple measurements with applications. It is based on the two papers listed above written with Patrick Hayden and Pranab Sen, and Mario Berta and Stephanie Wehner.

**Maximum matching in streaming models**

My master's thesis (2008), on maximum matching in streaming models (in French), under the supervision of Frédéric Magniez. We give lower bounds on streaming algorithms computing approximate maximum matchings in graphs.

**Simulating perpetuities using coupling from the past**

My research report of a project (2007) on simulating perpetuities using coupling from the past, under the supervision of Luc Devroye.

**Quantum coin flipping**

My licence thesis (2006), on quantum coin-flipping (in French), under the supervision of Frédéric Magniez. We give a simple proof for the bias of a quantum coin-flipping protocol. The protocol is rather different than the first protocols achieving this bias of 0.25. This bias was the best known until the paper Optimal quantum strong coin flipping of André Chailloux and Iordanis Kerenidis, which is based on Mochon's constructions of weak coin-flipping protocols with arbitrarily small bias.
