N2 - The parallel repetition theorem states that for any two provers one round game with value at most 1- ∈ (for ∈ < 1/2), the value of the game repeated n times in parallel is at most (1 - ∈ 3) Ω(n/log s) where s is the size of the answers set [Raz98],[Hol07]. For Projection Games the bound on the value of the game repeated n times in parallel was improved to (1 - ∈ 2) Ω(n) [Rao08] and was shown to be tight [Raz08]. In this paper we show that if the questions are taken according to a product distribution then the value of the repeated game is at most (1 - ∈ 2) Ω(n/log s) and if in addition the game is a Projection Game we obtain a strong parallel repetition theorem, i.e., a bound of (1-∈) Ω(n).
