§11.7: Highlight: Majority Is Stablest Theorem

The Majority Is Stablest Theorem (to be proved at the end of this section) was originally conjectured in 2004 [KKMO04,KKMO07]. The motivation came from studying the approximability of the Max-Cut CSP.

§7.3: CSPs and computational complexity

This section is about the computational complexity of constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs), a fertile area of application for analysis of boolean functions. To study it we need to introduce a fair bit of background material; in fact, this section will mainly consist of definitions.
