The Optimization Complexity of Constraint Satisfaction Problems

In 1978, Schaefer considered a subclass of languages in
NP and proved a ``dichotomy theorem'' for this class. The subclass
considered were problems expressible as ``constraint satisfaction
problems'', and the ``dichotomy theorem'' showed that every language in
this class is either in P, or is NP-hard. This result is in ... more >>>

Approximability and Nonapproximability by Binary Decision Diagrams

Many BDD (binary decision diagram) models are motivated
by CAD applications and have led to complexity theoretical
problems and results. Motivated by applications in genetic
programming Krause, Savick\'y, and Wegener (1999) have shown
that for the inner product function IP$_n$ and the direct
storage access function DSA$_n$ ... more >>>

Polylogarithmic Private Approximations and Efficient Matching

A private approximation of a function f is defined to be another function F that approximates f in the usual sense, but does not reveal any information about the input x other than what can be deduced from f(x). We give the first two-party private approximation of the Euclidean distance ... more >>>
