This is the research proposal of Bruno Pasqualotto Cavalar, student at the University of São Paulo, for the FAPESP program Bolsa Estágio de Pesquisa no Exterior (BEPE), to be conducted at the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Professor Benjamin Rossman. The aim of this project is to study average-case lower bounds in restricted classes of Boolean circuits, such as monotone circuits and bounded-depth circuits, making use of combinatorial methods.
