Recap CS605: The Mathematics and Theory of Computer Science

2
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review Mathematical Preliminaries Language Theory Regular Languages Finite State Machines/ Finite Automata – only one path of execution Nondeterministic FSM – multiple paths of execution Regular Expressions Nonregular Languages and the Pumping Lemma – can only be used non regularity

3
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review Context Free Languages Context Free Grammars Pushdown Automata – extra stack element over the FSM Regular Languages subset of context free languages Non-context free languages and the pumping lemma

4
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review David Hilbert: –Is maths complete –Is maths consistent –Is maths decidable Godel answered the first two – every sufficiently powerful formal system is either inconsistent or incomplete. Third question remained open and brought about the concept of Turing machines.

5
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review Turing would design machine which were unable to solve some problems – proving computation (and maths) was undecidable. Turing Machines were models of human computation, and can do anything a real computer can do. TM’s are only models and can never be built.

6
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review TM’s can both read and write to its tape and can also move left or right. There are three possible outcomes of a TM – accept, reject or loop. A language is Turing-recognisable if some Turing machines recognises it. A language is known as Turing-decidable if some Turing machine decides it. TM’s have the ability to inspect another machines table of behaviour and emulate it.

7
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review Multitape Turing have multiple tapes which they can read or write to. Every multitape TM has an equivalent single tape TM. Nondeterministic TM’s is a generalisation of the standard TM for which every configuration may yield none, or one, or more than one next configuration. Every NTM has an equivalent DTM.

8
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review A Universal TM is capable of simulating any other TM. An abstract machine or programming language is Turing-complete if it has the same computational power as a UTM. Church-Turing thesis states that if any mathematical construction can solve a problem then there is a TM that can solve the problem.

9
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review Decidability of languages. Showing that a language is decidable is the same as showing that the computational problem is decidable. The Halting Problem: Will a TM accept a given input – in other words, will it always halt? Use Diagonalisation Technique to show the Halting Problem is undecidable.

10
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review Reductions are a way of converting one problem to another in such a way that a solution to the second one can be used to solve the first problem. Undecidable Problems. Completeness: The concept that a solution to a problem in a set can be applied to all others in the set.

11
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review Time Complexity and O-Notation. Complexity Classes. PTIME (P) – class of decision problems solvable (or languages recognised) by DTM’s obeying a polynomial bound on its running time. Some problems in P: Path, hcf, … Problems for which a proof can be found in polynomial time.

12
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review Tractability – what is feasible with limited resources, and intractability. To place the intractable problems in a class a new class was designed – NP. NP are the class of problems for which a solution can be verified in polynomial time. Travelling salesman, Clique, Vertex- Cover, Subset-Sum… Is NP = P?

13
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review NP-Complete problems are the hardest in NP. Polynomial-time reductions. Proving Membership of NP- Completeness: – A language B is NP-Complete if it satisfies two conditions: 1.B is in NP 2.Every A in NP is polynomial time reducible to B.

14
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Course Review SAT was proven to be NP-Complete by Cook. As 3SAT is a special case of the SAT problem it is therefore NP-Complete. We use 3SAT to prove that other problems are NP-Complete.

15
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Pointers If you are asked to prove a language is regular: design a FSM to recognise it. If you are asked to prove a language is irregular: use the Pumping Lemma. If you are asked to prove a language is context free: design a PDA to recognise it. If you are asked to prove a language is not context-free: use the Pumping Lemma.

16
Dr. A. Mooney, Dept. of Computer Science, NUI Maynooth Pointers Decidability = can it be either accepted or rejected for every possible input on a machine? Verifiability = can we verify that a solution to the problem is correct? If you are asked to show that a problem is NP-Complete then show that a problem already shown to be in NP-Complete can be reduced to it.
