5.3 Resources and Complexity Classes
In this section, we dene the measures of difculty of solving
computational problems. We
That is, there is an empty gap between time t(n) and time doublyexponentially greater than t(n), in the sense that anything that can be
computed in the larger time bound can already be computed in the
smaller time bound. That is, even with much more time,
If M accepts x, then TimeM(x) is the number of steps in the shortest
accepting computation path for x. If M rejects x, then TimeM(x) is the
number of steps in the longest computation path for x.
For a deterministic machine M, for every input x, there is a
