Introduction Complexity Theory 2002/03. Peter van Emde Boas Is it really so nice ? sum := 0 for i = 1 to N do sum := sum + a[i] ; print ( sum ) Back in 1977 this would work in less than a second for N = Can we deal with N = today within a second ? sum := 0 for i = 1 to N do j:= index[i] ; sum := sum + a[j] ; print ( sum ) And what about this one ?

Introduction Complexity Theory 2002/03. Peter van Emde Boas WHAT IS COMPLEXITY ? Relation between size of the input instance and the time required for solving this instance. Traversing a listLinearO(n) SortingO(n.logn) Multiplication QuadraticO(n 2 ) Matrix multiplicationCubicO(n 3 ) Truth table checkingExponentialO(2 n ) Naive TSPO(n!) What can be done in principle can become undoable in practice Order of growth is more relevant than the implicit constants

Introduction Complexity Theory 2002/03. Peter van Emde Boas Impact of the faster machine n 1000 times as large n.logn times as large n 2 31 times as large n 3 10 times as large 2 n add 10 to input size That’s why Edmonds stated his thesis: Effective ==> Polynomial Time Complexity

16
Introduction Complexity Theory 2002/03. Peter van Emde Boas A Fallacy ?? If computation speed doubles every 2 years we can perform (2 N - 1) M operations in 2N years, where M is the number of operations performed in the first 2 years. So why worry about exponential time algorithms ?? What is wrong with this argument ?
