An Algebraic Theory of Complexity for Discrete Optimization


Discrete optimization problems arise in many different areas and are studied under many different names. In many such problems the quantity to be optimized can be expressed as a sum of functions of a restricted form. Here we present a unifying theory of complexity for problems of this kind. We show that the complexity of a finite-domain discrete… (More)
