The NP-completeness column


This is the 24th edition of a column that covers new developments in the theory of NP-completeness. The presentation is modeled on that which M. R. Garey and I used in our book &#8220;Computers and Intractability: A Guide to the Theory of NP-Completeness,&#8221; W. H. Freeman &amp; Co., New York, 1979, hereinafter referred to as &ldquo;&#8220;[G&amp;J].&rdquo;&#8221; Previous columns, the first 23 of which appeared in <i>J. Algorithms</i>, will be referred to by a combination of their sequence number and year of appearance, e.g. &#8220;[Col 1, 1981].&#8221; This edition of the column describes the history and purpose of the column and the status of the open problems from [G&amp;J] and previous columns.
