Cops-Robber games and the resolution of Tseitin formulas

We characterize several complexity measures for the resolution of Tseitin formulas in terms of a two person cop-robber game. Our game is a slight variation of the one Seymour and Thomas used in order to characterize the tree-width parameter. For any undirected graph, by counting the number of cops needed ... more >>>

Parameterized Complexity of Small Weight Automorphisms

We consider the PermCode problem to decide, given a representation of a permutation group G and a parameter k, whether there is a non-trivial element of G with support at most k. This problem generalizes several problems in the literature. We introduce a new method that allows to reduce the ... more >>>

Solution-Graphs of Boolean Formulas and Isomorphism

The solution graph of a Boolean formula on n variables is the subgraph of the hypercube Hn induced by the satisfying assignments of the formula. The structure of solution graphs has been the object of much research in recent years since it is important for the performance of SAT-solving procedures ... more >>>

Succinct Encodings of Graph Isomorphism

It is well known that problems encoded with circuits or formulas generally gain an exponential complexity blow-up compared to their original complexity.

We introduce a new way for encoding graph problems, based on $\textrm{CNF}$ or $\textrm{DNF}$ formulas. We show that contrary to the other existing succinct models, there are ... more >>>

Solving Linear Equations Parameterized by Hamming Weight

Given a system of linear equations $Ax=b$ over the binary field $\mathbb{F}_2$ and an integer $t\ge 1$, we study the following three algorithmic problems:
1. Does $Ax=b$ have a solution of weight at most $t$?
2. Does $Ax=b$ have a solution of weight exactly $t$?
3. Does $Ax=b$ have a ... more >>>

Graph Isomorphism is not AC^0 reducible to Group Isomorphism

We give a new upper bound for the Group and Quasigroup
Isomorphism problems when the input structures
are given explicitly by multiplication tables. We show that these problems can be computed by polynomial size nondeterministic circuits of unbounded fan-in with $O(\log\log n)$ depth and $O(\log^2 n)$ nondeterministic bits, ... more >>>

Restricted Space Algorithms for Isomorphism on Bounded Treewidth Graphs

The Graph Isomorphism problem restricted to graphs of bounded treewidth or bounded tree distance width
are known to be solvable in polynomial time \cite{Bo90},\cite{YBFT}.
We give restricted space algorithms for these problems proving the following results:

Isomorphism for bounded tree distance width graphs is in L and thus complete ... more >>>

Reductions to Graph Isomorphism

We show that several reducibility notions coincide when applied to the
Graph Isomorphism (GI) problem. In particular we show that if a set is
many-one logspace reducible to GI, then it is in fact many-one AC^0
reducible to GI. For the case of Turing reducibilities we show that ... more >>>

Solvable Group Isomorphism is (almost) in NP\cap coNP


The Group Isomorphism problem consists in deciding whether two input
groups $G_1$ and $G_2$ given by their multiplication tables are
isomorphic. We first give a 2-round Arthur-Merlin protocol for the
Group Non-Isomorphism problem such that on input groups $(G_1,G_2)$
of size $n$, Arthur uses ... more >>>

A Combinatorial Characterization of Treelike Resolution Space

We show that the Player-Adversary game from a paper
by Pudlak and Impagliazzo played over
CNF propositional formulas gives
an exact characterization of the space needed
in treelike resolution refutations. This
characterization is purely combinatorial
and independent of the notion of resolution.
We use this characterization to give ... more >>>

Sparse sets, approximable sets, and parallel queries to NP

We relate the existence of disjunctive hard sets for NP to
other well studied hypotheses in complexity theory showing
that if an NP-complete set or a coNP-complete set is
polynomial-time disjunctively reducible
to a sparse set then FP$^{\rm NP}_{||}$ = FP$^{\rm NP[log]}$. Using
a similar argument we obtain also that ... more >>>

Optimal proof systems for Propositional Logic and complete sets

A polynomial time computable function $h:\Sigma^*\to\Sigma^*$ whose range
is the set of tautologies in Propositional Logic (TAUT), is called
a proof system. Cook and Reckhow defined this concept
and in order to compare the relative strenth of different proof systems,
they considered the notion ... more >>>
