Mitosis in Computational Complexity


This expository paper describes some of the results of two recent research papers [GOP05,GPSZ05]. The first of these papers proves that every NP-complete set is many-one autoreducible. The second paper proves that every many-one autoreducible set is many-one mitotic. It follows immediately that every NP-complete set is many-one mitotic. Hence, we have the compelling result that every NP-complete set A splits into two NP-complete sets A1 and A2.
