CS3230 Tutorial 10 1. Consider the following problem: Input: Given a weighted graph G , two vertices u and v in G , and a value d . Question: Is there a path from u to v of weight at most d ? Is the above problem in NP? Could it be NP-complete? 2. In class we saw that it is open at present whether P = NP or not. It is also open whether NP = EXP or not. Is it possible that both P = NP and NP = EXP are true? 3. It can be shown that knapsack problem is NP-complete. Thus, if knapsack problem can be solved in polynomial time, then all problems in NP can be solved in polynomial time. Professor S claimed that he could solve the discrete knapsack problem in time proportional to C * n (see the dynamic programming algorithm done in class), where C is the capacity of the knapsack and n is the number of objects in the problem. Thus the discrete knapsack problem is in P. Thus, Professor S claimed that he has shown P=NP. Could you find a flaw in his argu- ment?

### 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.
