Abstract

High dimensional expanders is a vibrant emerging field of study. Nevertheless, the only known construction of bounded degree high dimensional expanders is based on Ramanujan complexes, whereas one dimensional bounded degree expanders are abundant. In this work we construct new families of bounded degree high dimensional expanders obeying the local spectral expansion property. A property that implies, geometric overlapping, fast mixing of high dimensional random walks, agreement testing and agreement expansion. The construction also yields new families of expander graphs. The construction is quite elementary and it is presented in a self contained manner; This is in contrary to the highly involved construction of the Ramanujan complexes. The construction is also strongly symmetric; The symmetry of the construction could be used, for example, to obtain good symmetric LDPC codes that were previously based on Ramanujan graphs.
