Define M: a det. Turing machine that halts on all input
Measuring Complexity Worst-case analysis Average-case analysis Define M: a det. Turing machine that halts on all input The running time or time complexity of M is the function f: NN, where f(n) is the maximum number of steps that M uses on any input of length n If f(n) is the running time of M, we say M runs in time f(n) and that M is an f(n) time Turing machine.

Cook-Levin Theorem： SAT is NP-complete. Proof ： 1> SAT NP：
A NTM can guess an assignment to a given formula and accept if the assignment satisfies . 2> For any A NP and show that A is polynomial time reducible to SAT. Let N be a non-deterministic TM that decides A in nk time for some constant k. A tableau for N on w is an nkXnk table whose rows are the configurations of a branch of the Computation of N on input w. # q0 w1 # start configuration cell # # 2nd configuration # # window # # nkth configuration A tableau is accepting if any row of the tableau is accepting configuration.

* Determine whether N accepts w is equivalent to determine whether an
Every accepting tableau for N on w corresponds to a computation branch of N on w. * Determine whether N accepts w is equivalent to determine whether an accepting tableau for N on w exists. f：polynomial time reduction from A to SAT. On input w, the reduction produces a formula . Let Q and be the state set and the tape alphabet of N. Let For and each we have a variable such variables. If , it means cell[i,j] contains an s. Design so that a satisfying assignment to the variable does correspond to an accepting tableau for N on w. (1) i s j

Ensure that the first row of the table is the starting configuration of N on w.
(3) Guarantees that an accepting configuration occurs in the tableau. (4) This part is more complicated ! guarantee that each row of the table corresponds to a configuration that legally follows the preceding Row’s configuration according to N’s rules. # b a q1 b a a # b q2 a c a a # b b q2 a a (a) (b) (c) q1 c a q1 b q2 a q1 b a a a a q2 a a b legal windows (c) (d) (b) # b a a b a b b b a b q2 c b b # b a

Examples of illegal windows：

3SAT is in NP. How about

Vertex cover of G： If G is an undirected graph, a vertex cover of G is a subset of the nodes where every edge of G touches one of those nodes. {2,3} is a vertex cover. 1 4 {1,3} is not a vertex cover. 3 VERTEX-COVER={<G,k>|G is an undirected graph that has a k-node vertex cover}.

Thm： VERTEX-COVER is NP-complete. Proof ： VERTEX-COVER is in NP.
Variable gadgets Clause gadgets Need to show that is satisfiable iff G has a vertex cover with k nodes. Let have m variables and l clauses. Let k=m+2l. One true variable from each variable gadget. two node from each clause gadget. (2) Each of the 3 edges connecting the variable gadgets with each clause gadget is covered.

SUBSET-SUM：

Thm： SUBSET-SUM is NP-complete. Proof ： SUBSET-SUM is in NP.
Let be a boolean formula with variables x1,…,xl and clauses c1,…,ck. ….. l C1 C2 ….. Ck ….. 0 ….. 0 ….. 1 …. ….. 0 ….. 0 ….. 0 …. ….. 0 ….. 0 clause cj contains xi 1 1 ….. 0 ….. 0 ….. 0 ….. 0 1 1 ….. 1

(1) Suppose is satisfiable. Construct a subset S as follows. If xi is assigned TRUE, select yi else select zi. I.e. for each I, we select either yi or zi. Last k digits add up between 1 and 3. Select enough of g and h numbers to make each of the last k digits up to 3. (2) Suppose a subset of S sums to t. We construct a satisfying assignment to . If the subset contains yi , we assigned xi TRUE else assign xi FALSE. This assignment satisfied ! Why?? The table has size

Thm: MAX-SAT is NP-complete
Given a boolean formula , and an integer k, is there a truth assignment that satisfies at least k clauses? Thm: MAX-SAT is NP-complete Pf: SAT p MAX-SAT  = c1  c2  …  cm k = m  Thm: DOUBLE-SAT: Given a boolean formula , are there at least 2 truth assignment for ? DOUBLE-SAT is NP-complete

Thm: HAMPATH is NP-complete
Def: Hamiltonian path in a directed graph G is a directed path that goes through each node once. HAMPATH: Given a directed graph and its 2 vertices s and t, is there a Hamiltonian path from s to t? Thm: HAMPATH is NP-complete Pf: (long…later) 3SAT p HAMPATH  UHAMPATH: Given a undirected graph and its 2 vertices s and t, is there

Proof: (HAMPATH is NPC)
The following is a 3cnf-formula with k clauses: =(a1∨b1∨c1) ∧ (a2∨b2∨c2) ∧ …∧ (ak∨bk∨ck) Each a,b,c is a literal xi or , and x1,…,xl are l variables of . xi : ci :

s c1 Proof conti. c2 cl t

Proof conti.

Proof conti. If there is a satisfying assignment, “select exactly one of the literals” in a clause and assign it TRUE. If there is a truth assignment, then there exists an Hamiltonian path from s to t.

Proof conti. If the Hamiltonian path is normal, that is, it goes through the diamonds in order from the top one to the bottom one, we can easily get the satisfying assignment. Because each clause node appears on the path, by observing the diamond at which the detour to it is taken, we may determine which of the literals in the corresponding clause is TRUE. If the path zigzag, we assign corresponding variable TRUE If the path zagzig, we assign FALSE.

We show that a Hamiltonian path must be normal.
Proof conti. We show that a Hamiltonian path must be normal. c

Pf: HAMPATH p UHAMPATH directed G  undirected G’ u  V(G) vertices of G’: u  uin, umid, uout s  sout ; t  tin edges of G’: u  v  E(G)  uin – umid – uout – vin – vmid – vout if s  u1  u2  …  uk  t is a Hamiltonian path in G, then sout – u1in – u1mid – u1out – u2in – u2mid – u2out – … – ukin – ukmid – ukout – tin is an undirected Hamiltonian path in G’ s u v t vmid sout uin umid uout vin vout tin

Undirected Hamiltonian Cycle Thm:
Undirected Hamiltonian Cycle is NP-comlplete Pf: UHAMPATH p UHAMCYCLE Traveling Salesman Problem: (TSP) Given an integer n2, an nn distance matrix of some cities, and an integer B0, is there a tour that visits every city exactly once and returns to the starting city by traveling within distance B? Thm: TSP is NP-complete Pf: UHAMCYCLE p TSP

LONGEST CYCLE is NP-complete SUBGRAPH ISOMORPHISM:
Given a graph and integer k, is there a cycle, with no repeated nodes, of length at least k? Thm: LONGEST CYCLE is NP-complete SUBGRAPH ISOMORPHISM: Given 2 undirected graphs G and H, is G a subgraph of H? SUBGRAPH ISOMORPHISM is NP-complete

Coping with NP-completeness:
Approximation algorithms: Let x be an instance of an optimization problem Opt(x): the optimum solution of x A: a poly. time algorithm for x : positive real number If A satisfies For all x, then we say A is an -approximation algorithm

2. while there is an edge [u,v] in G
Eg. The following is a 1-approximation algorithm for the vertex cover problem. G: C={2,3} Algorithm: 1. C :=; 2. while there is an edge [u,v] in G add u, v to C and delete them from G Let be the optimum vertex cover c={ , , ,…, } 2 4 3 1

Polynomial Time Approximation Scheme(PTAS)
We say that an approximation scheme is PTAS, if for any fixed  >0, the scheme runs in time polynomial in the size n of its input instance. Ratio bound: Inapproximable problem: If there is no -approximation algorithm for them with however large , unless P=NP

Thm: TSP is inapproximable unless P=NP
Pf: Let G be a graph with n nodes. UHAMCYCLE p TSP If G has a Hamiltonian cycle, then the optimum cost of a tour is n; otherwise if G has no Hamiltonian cycle, then the optimum cost of a tour > n(1+) 1 2+3 1

If TSP had an -approximation algorithm A, then we would be able to tell whether G has a Hamiltonian cycle. Run A for TSP: i> if the returned cost  n(1+)+1: No cycle ii> if the returned cost  n(1+): has a cycle Unless P=NP, TSP is inapproximable.

Backtracking and Branch&Bound:
A={S0} while A is not empty do choose a subproblem S and delete it from A choose a way of branching out of S , say to subproblems S1, S2,…, Sr for each subproblem Si in this list do if test(Si) returns “solution found” else if test(Si) returns “?” then add Si to A Return “no solution”

Eg. x = T x = F y = T y = F z = T z = F

Branch&Bound algorithm:
A:={S0} , best_so_far:= while A is not empty do choose a subproblem S and delete it from A choose a way of branching out of S , say to subproblems S1, S2,…, Sr for each subproblem Si in this list do if |Si|=1 then update best_so_far else if lowerbound(Si) < best_so_far then add Si to A Return best_so_far

Local improvement algorithm:
S= initial solution while there is a solution S’ such that S’ is a neighbor of S and cost(S’) < cost(S) do S:=S’ Return S

Simulated annealing: S= initial solution; T:=T0 repeat
generate a random solution S’ such that S’ is a neighbor of S and let  = cost(S’)cost(S) if   0 then S:=S’ else S:=S’ with probability e-/T update (T) until T=0 Return the best solution seen! T: temperature
