# Concrete Noise Propagation Estimator

This crate contains tools to estimate the propagation of noise in ciphertexts, for the homomorphic operators defined in the concrete-core library, you can find it here in this repo.

# Description

This library makes it possible to estimate the noise propagation after homomorphic operations.
It makes it possible to obtain characteristics of the output distribution of the noise, that we
call **dispersion**, which regroups the
variance and expectation. This is particularly useful to track the noise growth during the
homomorphic evaluation of a circuit. The explanations and the proofs of these formula can be
found in the appendices of the article Improved Programmable Bootstrapping with Larger
Precision
and Efficient Arithmetic Circuits for TFHE by *Ilaria
Chillotti, Damien Ligier, Jean-Baptiste Orfila and Samuel Tap*.

# Quick Example

The following piece of code shows how to obtain the variance $\sigma_{add}$ of the noise after a simulated homomorphic addition between two ciphertexts which have variances $\sigma_{ct_1}$ and $\sigma_{ct_2}$, respectively.

# Example:

`use` `concrete_core``::``prelude``::``{`DispersionParameter`,` Variance`}``;`
`use` `concrete_npe``::`estimate_addition_noise`;`
`//`We suppose that the two ciphertexts have the same variance.
`let` var1 `=` Variance`(``2_``f64``.``powf``(``-``25.``)``)``;`
`let` var2 `=` Variance`(``2_``f64``.``powf``(``-``25.``)``)``;`
`//`We call the npe to estimate characteristics of the noise after an addition
`//`between these two variances.
`//`Here, we assume that ciphertexts are encoded over 64 bits.
`let` var_out `=` `estimate_addition_noise``::``<``_`, `_``>``(`var1`,` var2`,` `64``)``;`
`println!``(``"`Expect Variance (2^24) = `{}``"``,` `2_``f64``.``powi``(``-``24``)``)``;`
`println!``(``"`Output Variance `{}``"``,` var_out`.``get_variance``(``)``)``;`
`assert!``(``(``2_``f64``.``powi``(``-``24``)` `-` var_out`.``get_variance``(``)``)``.``abs``(``)` `<` `0.``0001``)``;`
