Title: Improving linear programming techniques in the search for lower bounds in secret sharing
Abstract:
We present a new improvement in the linear programs that are used for finding lower bounds
in secret sharing. Several families of access structures on a small number of participants have
been used as a testbed for our improvement, with an encouraging outcome.
