In this paper, we define and study the k-approximating circuits. A circuit accepting a given set of inputs A is k-approximated by accepting inputs that differ from one of A by at most k bits. We show that the existence of polynomial-size k-approximating circuits depends on the relation between k and the number of inputs.
Reliability and testing, complexity measures and classes, models of computation.
