Learning Bayesian Networks is NPComplete
, 1996
"... Algorithms for learning Bayesian networks from data havetwo components: a scoring metric and a search procedure. The scoring metric computes a score reflecting the goodnessoffit of the structure to the data. The search procedure tries to identify network structures with high scores. Heckerman e ..."

relative posterior probability greater than a given constant is NPcomplete, when the BDe metric is used. 12.1
Protocol insecurity with finite number of sessions is NPcomplete
 Theoretical Computer Science
, 2001
"... We investigate the complexity of the protocol insecurity problem for a finite number of sessions (fixed number of interleaved runs). We show that this problem is NPcomplete with respect to a DolevYao model of intruders. The result does not assume a limit on the size of messages and supports nonat ..."

Improved algorithms for optimal winner determination in combinatorial auctions and generalizations
, 2000
"... Combinatorial auctions can be used to reach efficient resource and task allocations in multiagent systems where the items are complementary. Determining the winners is NPcomplete and inapproximable, but it was recently shown that optimal search algorithms do very well on average. This paper present ..."

NPcompleteness: A retrospective
 IN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON AUTOMATA, LANGUAGES, AND PROGRAMMING (ICALP
, 1997
"... For a quarter of a century now, NPcompleteness has been computer science's favorite paradigm, fad, punching bag, buzzword, alibi, and intellectual export. This paper is a fragmentary commentary on its origins, its nature, its impact, and on the attributes that have made it so pervasive and con ..."

Some NPcomplete Geometric Problems
"... We show that the STEINER TREE problem and TRAVELING SALESMAN problem for points in the plane are NPcomplete when distances are measured either by the rectilinear (Manhattan) metric or by a natural discretized version of the Euclidean metric. Our proofs also indicate that the problems are NPhard i ..."

Where the REALLY Hard Problems Are
 IN J. MYLOPOULOS AND R. REITER (EDS.), PROCEEDINGS OF 12TH INTERNATIONAL JOINT CONFERENCE ON AI (IJCAI91),VOLUME 1
, 1991
"... It is well known that for many NPcomplete problems, such as KSat, etc., typical cases are easy to solve; so that computationally hard cases must be rare (assuming P != NP). This paper shows that NPcomplete problems can be summarized by at least one "order parameter", and that the hard p ..."

Worstcase equilibria
 IN PROCEEDINGS OF THE 16TH ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM ON THEORETICAL ASPECTS OF COMPUTER SCIENCE
, 1999
"... In a system in which noncooperative agents share a common resource, we propose the ratio between the worst possible Nash equilibrium and the social optimum as a measure of the effectiveness of the system. Deriving upper and lower bounds for this ratio in a model in which several agents share a ver ..."

In a system in which noncooperative agents share a common resource, we propose the ratio between the worst possible Nash equilibrium and the social optimum as a measure of the effectiveness of the system. Deriving upper and lower bounds for this ratio in a model in which several agents share a very simple network leads to some interesting mathematics, results, and open problems.
.4 Coping With NpCompleteness
"... s reductions often produce instances of the problem that are unnaturally complex. Perhaps what we really need to solve is a more tractable special case of the problem. For example, we have already seen that there is an important special case of SATISFIABILITY that can be easily solved efficiently: ..."

: 2SATISFIABILITY (recall Section 6.3). If all instances of SATISFIABILITY that we must solve have clauses of this kind, then the fact that the general problem is NPcomplete is rather irrelevant. But often a special case of interest turns out to be itself NPcomplete for example, 3SATISFIABILITY
Using Genetic Algorithms to Solve NPComplete Problems
, 1989
"... A strategy for using Genetic Algorithms (GAs) to solve NPcomplete problems is presented. The key aspect of the approach taken is to exploit the observation that, although all NPcomplete problems are equally difficult in a general computational sense, some have much better GA representations than o ..."

How to Cope with NPCompleteness
, 2013
"... NPcomplete problems arise frequently in practice. In today’s lecture, we discuss various approaches for coping with NPcomplete problems. When NPcompleteness was discovered, algorithm designers could take it as an excuse. It is true, that I have not found an efficient algorithm. However, nobody wi ..."
