A function which is easy to compute but hard to invert (i.e. find preimages for). The existence of one-way functions implies the possibility of many useful cryptographic schemes. No one-way functions have so far been proven to exist, but many likely candidates exist.

### Worst case one way function

the worst-case one way function is defined as follows $$\forall A \exists x : pr(A(f(x))\in f^{-1}(f(x)))\neq 1$$ can you give any example of such function?

### Inverting a candidate one way function

Let $w = a_0 \cdot a_1 \cdots a_{n-1}$ be a word from $\{0,1\}^n$, $|w| = n$ Let $m = \sum_{i=0}^{n-1}{ a_i \cdot 2 ^ {n-1-i} }$ be the corresponding binary number constructed from the word. Let ...
