### Asymptotic time required to simulate a Turing machine M for k steps

Problem: Given an encoding of a Turing machine M and a natural number k as input, find the output of M (given a blank tape) after k steps. Wikipedia's page on EXPTIME-complete says it takes O(k) time ...

### Finding exact value with a quotients of products of random values

Sorry for the haphazard title: really not sure what this should be called Suppose we have a set of $z$ random values $S = r_1, \dots, r_z$ drawn from $\mathbb{Z}_N$ (where $N$ is some large prime). ...

### Does two-sided error have more capability than one-sided error?

From $P=RP$ extrapolation we might think $EXP=REXP$. What evidence do we have $BPP\subseteq REXP$? What consequence $REXP\subseteq BPP$ gives other than what $EXP\subseteq BPP$ gives?
