The deficiency of a propositional formula F in CNF with n variables

and m clauses is defined as m-n. It is known that minimal

unsatisfiable formulas (unsatisfiable formulas which become

satisfiable by removing any clause) have positive deficiency.

Recognition of minimal unsatisfiable formulas is NP-hard, and it was

shown recently ...

We show that the bipartite perfect matching problem is in quasi-NC$^2$. That is, it has uniform circuits of quasi-polynomial size and $O(\log^2 n)$ depth. Previously, only an exponential upper bound was known on the size of such circuits with poly-logarithmic depth.

We obtain our result by an almost complete ... more >>>

In this paper we present a pseudo-deterministic $RNC$ algorithm for finding perfect matchings in bipartite graphs. Specifically, our algorithm is a randomized parallel algorithm which uses $poly(n)$ processors, $poly({\log n})$ depth, $poly(\log n)$ random bits, and outputs for each bipartite input graph a unique perfect matching with high probability.
