Recap To prove B is in NP-Hard, show that some known NP-Hard problem can be reduced to B. 3SAT NP-Hard X NP B A problem/language is in NP, if there is a certificate that allows you to verify the answer in polynomial time. A problem/language is NP ‑ Hard if every problem in NP can be reduced to it. If a problem is in NP and NP ‑ Hard, it is in NP ‑ Complete.

Proof: SAT is NP-Complete M SAT Polynomial-time decider for SAT 3SAT input Polynomial- time Input Transformer Poly-time Output Transformer 3SAT output If we can use M SAT, a polynomial-time decider for SAT to build a polynomial- time decider for 3SAT, this proves that SAT is at least as “hard” as 3SAT. Show that if SAT is in P, so is 3SAT.

S = { , , , , , , , , , , , } t = Opps! Iit was pointed out in class that this doesn’t work since the KNAPSACK solver might include 10x or 100x of one of the numbers and still get the right sum. This should be fixable…if you can fix it, a good answer replaces Problem 5 on PS6.

Chain of Reductions KNAPSACK SUBSET-SUM 3SAT reduces to Every problem in NP reduces to

Hints for PS6, Problem 5 Prove Genome Assembly is NP-Complete Solve this by thinking, not googling You can (of course!) do the reduction from any NP-Complete problem to Genome Assembly – But, some will be easier than others – Some of the problems described in Sipser are better choices than ones we have covered in class

Princeton, 20 March 1956 Dear Mr. von Neumann: With the greatest sorrow I have learned of your illness. … I hope and wish for you that your condition will soon improve even more and that the newest medical discoveries, if possible, will lead to a complete recovery. Since you now, as I hear, are feeling stronger, I would like to allow myself to write you about a mathematical problem, of which your opinion would very much interest me: One can obviously easily construct a Turing machine, which for every formula F in first order predicate logic and every natural number n, allows one to decide if there is a proof of F of length n (length = number of symbols). Let ψ(F,n) be the number of steps the machine requires for this and let ϕ(n) = max F ψ(F, n). The question is how fast ϕ(n) grows for an optimal machine. One can show that ϕ(n) ≥ k ⋅ n. If there really were a machine with ϕ(n) ∼ k ⋅ n (or even ∼ k ⋅ n 2 ), this would have consequences of the greatest importance. Namely, it would obviously mean that inspite of the undecidability of the Entscheidungsproblem, the mental work of a mathematician concerning Yes-or-No questions could be completely replaced by a machine. After all, one would simply have to choose the natural number n so large that when the machine does not deliver a result, it makes no sense to think more about the problem.

Has-Short-Proof “One can obviously easily construct a Turing machine, which for every formula F in first order predicate logic and every natural number n, allows one to decide if there is a proof of F of length n (length = number of symbols).”

38
Has Short Proof is Decidable Try all possible proofs of length n – How do we know this is finite? For each possible proof, check if it is a valid proof of F. – A proof is valid if: It starts from the accepted axioms. Each step follows a deduction rule (finite set of rules). It reaches the statement F.
