Module 13 Worksheet In Class Questions 1) (S5) Consider the following two problems. Define what a natural notion of size might be for these problems. Shortest path problem Longest path problem Input: Graph G=(V,E) Input: Graph G=(V,E) 2 nodes s and t 2 nodes s and t Task: Output the shortest path from Task: Output the longest path from node s to node t node s to node t 2) (S6) Which of the following problems belong to Poly? Let n be the standardized input size. Let the right hand side be the worst-case running time required to solve an input instance of the given problem of size n.

Take home review questions 1) How do we define how hard a problem is to solve? 2) Generally speaking, a problem is easy to solve if it belongs to Poly. What does it mean to be long to Poly? 3) True or false and explain your answer. Automata theory is different from complexity theory in that Automata theory focuses on the unsolvable problems....
