The Number of Knight's Tours Equals 33,439,123,484,294 -- Counting with Binary Decision Diagrams

An increasing number of results in graph theory, combinatorics and
theoretical computer science is obtained with the help of computers,
e.g. the proof of the Four Colours Theorem or the computation of
certain Ramsey numbers. Binary decision diagrams, known as tools in
hardware verification ... more >>>

Looking for an Analogue of Rice's Theorem in Complexity Theory

Rice's Theorem says that every nontrivial semantic property
of programs is undecidable. It this spirit we show the following:
Every nontrivial absolute (gap, relative) counting property of circuits
is UP-hard with respect to polynomial-time Turing reductions.

The complexity of the counting constraint satisfaction problem

Revisions: 1

The Counting Constraint Satisfaction Problem (#CSP(H)) over a finite
relational structure H can be expressed as follows: given a
relational structure G over the same vocabulary,
determine the number of homomorphisms from G to H.
In this paper we characterize relational structures H for which
#CSP(H) can be solved in ... more >>>

Exponential Time Complexity of the Permanent and the Tutte Polynomial

Revisions: 1

The Exponential Time Hypothesis (ETH) says that deciding the satisfiability of $n$-variable 3-CNF formulas requires time $\exp(\Omega(n))$. We relax this hypothesis by introducing its counting version #ETH, namely that every algorithm that counts the satisfying assignments requires time $\exp(\Omega(n))$. We transfer the sparsification lemma for $d$-CNF formulas to the counting ... more >>>

On the complexity of enumerating ordered sets

We consider the complexity of enumerating ordered sets, defined as solving the following type of a computational problem: For a predetermined ordered set, given $i\in\N$, one is required to answer with the $i^{th}$ member of the set (according to the predetermined order).

Our focus is on countable sets such as ... more >>>
