Games on Relations
The communication complexity of boolean functions is an information theoretic measure of their complexity. Besides its own importance, this measure is closely related to the computational complexity of functions: it corresponds to the smallest depth of circuits computing them. Thus, this measure can be used to prove circuit lower bounds. Communication complexity is appealing not only for its elegance and relation to circuit complexity, but also because its study involves the application of diverse tools from algebra, combinatorics and other fields of mathematics.
