The First-Order Variable Hierachy on Ordered Graphs Benjamin Rossman MIT

2
Bounded Variable Logics The variable complexity of a first-order formula is the maximum number of free variables in a subformula of. FO m = { first-order formulas with variable complexity m } Example: (in the language {E,<} of ordered graphs) 9x 1 9x 2 ( x 1

4
Bounded Variable Logics The variable hierarchy refers to FO 1 ½ FO 2 ½ ½ FO m ½ where FO = m¸1 FO m. Question: Is the variable hierarchy strict/non- collapsing (in terms of expressive power) on a given class of structures? The answer is YES on the class of all structures (or all finite structures): "the universe contains at least m elements" is expressible in FO m but not FO m-1.

5
Bounded Variable Logics Some collapse results: FO ´ FO 2 on finite linear orders. FO ´ FO 3 on finite linear orders with any number of unary relations [Poizat '82]. Question: What about ordered graphs (= finite simple graphs with a linear order)? k-CLIQUE is a natural candidate property for proving the separation FO k-1 < FO k on ordered graphs.

6
Bounded Variable Logics One can show 3-CLIQUE is not definable in FO 2 by playing the 2-pebble Ehrenfeucht- Fraisse game on (seq. of) ordered graphs: It had been an open question (since [Immerman '82]) whether FO ´ FO 3 on ordered graphs. G1G1 G2G2

G1G1 G2G2 Games on ordered graphs become difficult with ¸ 3 pebbles/variables. One explanation may be that every finite ordered graph is defined up to isomorphism by a sentence of FO 3.

Bounded Variable Logics Theorem [R. '08]. k-CLIQUE is not definable in FO bk/4c. Corollary. FO bk/4c < FO k on ordered graphs. Lemma [Immerman '08]. On ordered graphs, FO k-1 ´ FO k ) FO k ´ FO k+1 (i.e., if the variable hierarchy does not collapse, then it is strict). Corollary. The variable hierarchy is strict (i.e., FO k < FO k+1 ) on ordered graphs.

Bounded Variable Logics Theorem [R. '08]. k-CLIQUE is not definable in FO bk/4c. Corollary. FO bk/4c < FO k on ordered graphs. Lemma [Immerman '08]. On ordered graphs, FO k-1 ´ FO k ) FO k ´ FO k+1 (i.e., if the variable hierarchy does not collapse, then it is strict). Corollary. The variable hierarchy is strict (i.e., FO k < FO k+1 ) on ordered graphs. These results hold not only for ordered graphs, but for classes of finite graphs with arbitrary numerical predicates (e.g., arithmetic + and £).

Bounded Variable Logics Theorem [R. '08]. k-CLIQUE is not definable in FO bk/4c. Corollary. FO bk/4c < FO k on ordered graphs. Lemma [Immerman '08]. On ordered graphs, FO k-1 ´ FO k ) FO k ´ FO k+1 (i.e., if the variable hierarchy does not collapse, then it is strict). Corollary. The variable hierarchy is strict (i.e., FO k < FO k+1 ) on ordered graphs. Moreover, we show that k/4 variables cannot distinguish classes {ordered graphs with no k-cliques} and {ordered graphs with a K- clique} for all k < K.

11
Circuits Circuits are comprised of AND, OR, NOT gates (with unbounded fan-in). We consider polynomial-size, constant-depth (i.e. AC 0 ) circuits with input variables (representing potential edges in an n-vertex graph). Descriptive Complexity: {m-variable, quantifier-depth d formulas} (on structures with arbitrary numerical predicates, e.g., linear order) ´ {non-uniform AC 0 circuits with size O(n m ) and depth d}.

AC 0 Lower Bound for k-Clique The k-clique problem (on graphs of size n) requires depth-d circuits of what size? Trivial upper bound: O(n k ) (acheived in depth 2) J. Lynch '86: (n p(k/d 3 ) ) P. Beame '90: (n k/89d 2 )

14
AC 0 Lower Bound for k-Clique The k-clique problem (on graphs of size n) requires depth-d circuits of what size? Trivial upper bound: O(n k ) (acheived by depth 2) J. Lynch '86: (n p(k/d 3 ) ) P. Beame '90: (n k/89d 2 ) These lower bounds degrade in the exponent of n as the depth d increases, becoming trivial when d > pk.

AC 0 Lower Bound for k-Clique The k-clique problem (on graphs of size n) requires depth-d circuits of what size? Trivial upper bound: O(n k ) (acheived in depth 2) J. Lynch '86: (n p(k/d 3 ) ) P. Beame '90: (n k/89d 2 ) We show: (n k/4 )

k-Clique Lower Bound The k-clique problem (on graphs of size n) requires depth-d circuits of what size? Trivial upper bound: O(n k ) (acheived in depth 2) J. Lynch '86: (n p(k/d 3 ) ) P. Beame '90: (n k/89d 2 ) We show: (n k/4 ) We eliminate dependence on d in the exponent of n. Result holds up to depth d = O(plog n) and potentially up to clique- size k = o(log n).

17
Erdos-Renyi Random Graphs The random graph ErdosRenyi(n,p), p = p(n) 2 [0,1], has n vertices. Edges are independently included with probability p. We parameterize p(n) = n – where > 0 (so small ! large p ! denser graph). = 2/(k-1) is the threshold for the appearance of k-cliques. That is, ER(n,n - ) almost surely has k-cliques if < 2/(k-1). ER(n,n - ) almost surely has no k-clique if > 2/(k-1).

Theorem. G = Erdos-Renyi(n, n –2/(k–1.5) ), |A| = k. Then a.a.s. for every d. Proof Idea. For each k/4-tuple of vertices v = (v 1,...,v k/4 ), we identify a small subset B(v) µ A (of size · k/2, but empty for most v). Key Property: For every B(v) µ C µ A such that |C| · k/2, hG[B(v)], vi ´ d hG[C], vi.

Theorem. G = Erdos-Renyi(n, n –2/(k–1.5) ), |A| = k. Then a.a.s. for every d. Proof Idea. For each k/4-tuple of vertices v = (v 1,...,v k/4 ), we identify a small subset B(v) µ A (of size · k/2, but empty for most v). Key Property: For every B(v) µ C µ A such that |C| · k/2, hG[B(v)], vi ´ d hG[C], vi. In other words: Once you add the clique on B(v) to the pebbled structure hG, vi, adding a larger subclique of A up to size · k/2 does not change the ´ d -theory.

For each k/4-tuple of vertices v = (v 1,...,v k/4 ), we identify a small subset B(v) µ A (of size · k/2, but empty for most v). Key Property: For every B(v) µ C µ A such that |C| · k/2, hG[B(v)], vi ´ d hG[C], vi. Duplicator's Strategy: "Mentally substitute" the pebbled structure hG[B(v)], vi for hG[A], vi.

Alas, this assumption is too strong! We cannot actually find sets B(v) µ A, v 2 [n] k/4, meeting these conditions. So we weaken this assumption (by simply restricting the notion of neighboring tuples). The weaker assumption will still imply

What actually works For a sufficiently small constant > 0, we fix an arbitrary tree T with vertices 1,...,n and degree n and diameter 2/ (plus all self-loops). Call v = (v 1,...,v m ), w = (w 1,...,w m ) 2 [n] m T-neighbors if 9i 2 {1,...,m} such that (v i,w i ) is an edge of T and v j = w j for all j i.

Main Theorem (circuit version) Let > 0 and k 2 N. Suppose C is a sequence of constant-depth circuits of size O(n (1+ )/2 ) on inputs. Then almost surely C has the same value on 1. a random graph G = ErdosRenyi(n,n – ), 2. the graph G [ (random k-clique).

Full Sensitivity A Boolean function f : n ! is fully sensitive if it depends on all n input bits. Formally: for every i 2 [n] = {1,...,n}, there exists x 2 {0,1} n such that f(x) f(x with i th bit flipped).

52
Random Restrictions Fix a Boolean function f : n ! A restriction is a function : n ! ¤. That is, for each input bit of f, the restriction either fixes a value (0 or 1) or leaves the input bit "unassigned" (¤). We can apply to f to get a function fd : -1 ¤ !.
