ABSTRACT
We study the problem of constructing extractors for independent weak random sources. The probabilistic method shows that there exists an extractor for two independent weak random sources on $n$ bits with only logarithmic min-entropy. However, previously the best known explicit two source extractor only achieves min-entropy $0.499n$ \cite{Bourgain05}, and the best known three source extractor only achieves min-entropy $n^{0.9}$ \cite{Rao06}. It is a long standing open problem to construct extractors that work for smaller min-entropy. In this paper we construct an extractor for three independent weak random sources on $n$ bits with min-entropy $n^{1/2+\delta}$, for any constant $0
