While nondeterminism is widely beleived to be more powerful than determinism in various contexts (the most famous being the conjecture that NP strictly contains P), no proof of the added power of nondeterminism is available for any significant issue. The weaker conjecture (than NP strictly contains P) that there is a language accepted by a nondeterministic linear time bounded multitape Turing Machine that cannot be accepted by a deterministic linear time bounded multi-tape TM still seems quite… CONTINUE READING
