Number of pages: 186 pages Thank you very much for reading introduction to circuit complexity a uniform approach. As you may know, people have search numerous times for their chosen books like this introduction to circuit complexity a uniform approach, but end up in malicious downloads. Rather than reading a good book with a cup of coffee in the afternoon,… (More)

We explore the potentially "off-by-one" nature of the definitions of counting (#P versus #NP), difference (DP versus DNP), and unambiguous (UP versus UNP; FewP versus FewNP) classes, and make suggestions as to logical approaches in each case. We discuss the strangely differing representations that oracle and predicate models give for counting classes, and… (More)

This group study of 24 amnesic patients and 40 control subjects examined the hypothesis that retrograde memory deficits result from a combination of two impairment mechanisms: (1) a deficit in the retrieval of contents that is related to dysfunctioning of the hippocampal anterograde memory system, and (2) a deficit in the storage and/or retrieval of… (More)

We consider the following optimization problem for UMTS networks: For a specified teletraffic demand and possible base station locations, choose positions for base stations such that<ul><li>the construction costs are below a given limit,
</li><li>as much teletraffic as possible is supplied,
</li><li>the ongoing costs are minimal, and
</li><li>the intra-cell… (More)

The complexity of various problems in connection with Boolean constraints, like, for example, quantified Boolean constraint satisfaction, have been studied recently. Depending on what types of constraints may be used, the complexity of such problems varies. A very interesting observation of the recent past has been that the thus derived classification of… (More)

There has been a great eeort in giving machine independent, algebraic characterizations of complexity classes, especially of functions. Astonishingly, no satisfactory characterization of the prominent class # P has been known up to now. Here, we characterize # P as the closure of a set of simple arithmetical functions under summation and weak product.… (More)

We show that examinations of the expressive power of logical formulae enriched by Lindström quantifiers over ordered finite structures have a well-studied complexity-theoretic counterpart: the leaf language approach to define complexity classes. Model classes of formulae with Lindström quantifiers are nothing else than leaf language definable sets. Along… (More)
