In computer science, st-connectivity or STCON is a decision problem asking, for vertices s and t in a directed graph, if t is reachable from s. Formally, the decision problem is given by PATH = { D, s, t | D is a directed graph with a path from vertex s to t}.

Complexity. The problem can be shown to be in NL, as a non-deterministic Turing machine can guess the next node of the path, while the.

Every monotone circuit for CONN has size $\Omega(n^3)$: CONN has almost the same monotone complexity as boolean multiplication of two boolean matrices, and this latter problem is shown, by Paterson () and by Mehlhorn-Galil (), to require $\Omega(n^3)$ gates. Abstract. In Membrane Computing, the solution of a decision problem \(X\) belonging to the complexity class P via a polynomially uniform family of recognizer P systems is trivial, since the polynomial encoding of the input can involve the solution of the problem.

The design of such solution has one membrane, two objects, two rules and one computation by: 2. from book Approximation, G with query complexity q = (2 / The main idea of the proo f is to reduce the problem of testing st-connectivity in the orien tation model to the.

One important NL-complete problem is ST-connectivity (or "Reachability") (Papadimitriou Thrm. ), the problem of determining whether, given a directed graph G and two nodes s and t on that graph, there is a path from s to t.

Directed st-connectivity is the problem of deciding whether or not there exists a path from a distinguished node s to a distinguished node t in a directed graph. We prove a time--space lower bound on the probabilistic NNJAG model of Poon [Proc.

34th Annual Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science, Palo Alto, CA,pp. ].Let n be the number of nodes in the input graph and S and Cited by: Abstract.

In a breakthrough result, Reingold [17] showed that the Undirected st-Connectivity problem can be solved in O(log n) next major challenge in this direction is whether one can extend it to directed graphs, and thereby lowering the deterministic space complexity of \(\mathcal{RL}\) or \(\mathcal{NL}\).In this paper, we show that Reingold’s algorithm, the O(log 4/3 n)-space Cited by: 8.

Directed st-connectivity is the problem of deciding whether or not there exists a path from a distinguished node s to a distinguished node t in a directed graph. We prove a time--space lower bound Cited by: There are two related complexity classes in $\text{NL}$ which are also in $\text{LogDCFL}$, which puts them in $\text{SC}^2$ (by Cook).

The first is $\text{RUL}$, for "Reach-Unambiguous Log-space" which has reachability in mangroves (graphs where every pair of vertices has at most one directed path between them) as a complete problem. We improve this algorithm for the special case when the network is planar, meaning no two edges of the network cross each other.

We show that to evaluate a formula, it is sufficient to solve a related st-connectivity problem on a planar network, and so our new st-connectivity algorithm can also be used to evaluate by: 1. This is a very important problem to understand the algorithmic and structural differences between undirected and directed width parameters.

Space complexity: Is Planar ST-connectvity in logspace. This is perhaps the most natural special case of the NL vs L problem. Planar ST-connectivity is known to be in. Recently, Imai, Nakagawa, Pavan.

The papers in this book stem from the London Mathematical Society Symposium on Boolean Function Complexity held at Durham University in July The range of topics covered will be of interest to the newcomer to the field as well as the expert, and overall the papers are representative of the research presented at the Symposium.

Within this new setting, Communication Complexity gives simpler proofs to old results and demonstrates the usefulness of the approach by presenting a depth lower bound for st-connectivity.

Karchmer concludes by proposing open problems which point toward proving a general depth lower by: Get this from a library.

[Leah Epstein; Paolo Ferragina;] -- This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 20th Annual European Symposium on Algorithms, ESAheld in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in September in the context of the combined conference.

In this way, we demonstrate the complexity class P is not equal to NP by the reduction ad absurdum rule. Another major complexity classes are LOGSPACE and NLOGSPACE. Whether LOGSPACE = NLOGSPACE is another fundamental question that it is as important as it is unresolved.

One way to phrase complexity theory's mission is. In computer science and computational complexity theory, st-connectivity or STCON is a decision problem asking, for vertices s and t in a directed graph, if t is reachable from s. Formally, the decision problem is given by.
