N2 - We show that, unless NP⊆DTIME(2 Poly log(n)), the closest vector problem with pre-processing, for ℓ p norm for any p ≥ 1, is hard to approximate within a factor of (log n) 1/p-ε for any ε > 0. This improves the previous best factor of 3 1/p - ε due to Regev [19]. Our results also imply that under the same complexity assumption, the nearest codeword problem with pre-processing is hard to approximate within a factor of (log n) 1-ε for any ε > 0.
