About the ECCC

What we do and why

The Electronic Colloquium on Computational Complexity is a new forum for the rapid and widespread interchange of ideas, techniques, and research in computational complexity. The purpose of this Colloquium is to use electronic media for scientific communication and discussions in the computational complexity community. The Electronic Colloquium on Computational Complexity (ECCC) welcomes papers, short notes and surveys with
  • relevance to the theory of computation,
  • clear mathematical profile and
  • strictly mathematical format.

Central topics

  • models of computation and their complexity,
  • trade-off results,
  • complexity bounds (with the emphasis on lower bounds).
      Specific areas including complexity issues are
    • combinatorics,
    • communication complexity,
    • cryptography,
    • combinatorial optimization,
    • complexity of learning algorithms,
    • logic.

Classical Automata on Promise Problems

Promise problems were mainly studied in quantum automata theory. Here we focus on state complexity of classical automata for promise problems. First, it was known that there is a family of unary promise problems solvable by quantum automata by using a single qubit, but the number of states required by ... more >>>

Sign rank, VC dimension and spectral gaps

We study the maximum possible sign rank of $N \times N$ sign matrices with a given VC dimension $d$. For $d=1$, this maximum is $3$. For $d=2$, this maximum is $\tilde{\Theta}(N^{1/2})$. Similar (slightly less accurate) statements hold for $d>2$ as well. We discuss the tightness of our methods, and describe ... more >>>

Parameterized Complexity of CTL: A Generalization of Courcelle's Theorem

We present an almost complete classification of the parameterized complexity of all operator fragments of the satisfiability problem in computation tree logic CTL. The investigated parameterization is temporal depth and pathwidth. The classification shows a dichotomy between W[1]-hard and fixed-parameter tractable fragments. The only real operator fragments which is in ... more >>>
