CSci 5403, Spring 2010 Hannah Jaber Problem 4.2 Proposition. BPL P where BPL is defined as follows: the language A is in BPL iff there exists a logspace PTM M such that Pr[ M ( x ; r ) = ( x A )] 2 / 3 . Proof. With only logarithmic space, M can have at most n c states, where n is the size of the input. More states would require the machine would loop states and not halt. We can therefore build an adjacency matrix K to descibe the possible configurations of M on input A . Iterate through all possible states s . If s j is adjacent to s i , the i, j entry in the matrix is 1, otherwise it is 0. s j is considered to be adjacent to state s i iff M can reach s j from s i in a single step. If s i requests a random bit, there will be two adjacent states for the two “output” edges. Random bit 1 will lead to one state, random bit 0 will lead to a different state. Consider the matrix K x . Entry i, j will list the number of paths from

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
