Nonexistence of an approximately distance-preserving map between discrete cubes
You're right about projection on to the first $n-1$ coordinates. Actually, the case that I'm really interested in is $n/2$ dimensions. In an hour or so I'll modify the question accordingly. |

Are there very strongly pseudorandom permutations?
I think I've now found a construction that does what I want. |

Are there any good websites for hosting discussions of mathematical papers?
I think you can make contributions by registering directly with the site, and anybody can read it. But Google Plus is a particularly convenient way of contributing, since all you have to do is write a normal post and add the #spnetwork hashtag. In due course other social networks will be added, but Google Plus has the advantage that public posts are genuinely public. |

Actually, scratch that -- I miscalculated the information-theoretic bound, which gives that exponentially many would be needed. |

I now think it may be possible to do something by composing polynomially many Feistel permutations. |

Yes. I was vague about it, but the precise requirement I would like is that $k$ should be at most a polynomial function of $n$ (or perhaps a very slightly superpolynomial function). |

Good point -- thanks for the tip. |
