@john: Because chess has perfect information and no random elements (unlike many, many other 2-player games), the only way it is possible for no perfect strategy for black to exist would be if white can force a win despite any attempt by black - in .

Names are key to maintainability. stack is a useful name for a datatype, but as a name for a variable it is opaque.. unsigned long *stack = new unsigned long[(1. Call n the number of moves in the longest possible chess game. (We are ignoring unbounded sequences for now, though including them is not difficult.) There are no moves with n prior moves we need to consider. Every move with n-1 prior moves is either a winning move or a losing move since n moves ends the longest game.

Abstract. It is proved that a natural generalization of chess to an n×n board is complete in exponential time. This implies that there exist chess-positions on an n×n chess-board for which the problem of determining who can win from that position requires an amount of time which is at least exponential in by: UILU-ENG 79 Computing a perfect strategy for n x [i.e.

superscript] n chess requires time exponential in n. Solving chess means finding an optimal strategy for playing chess, i.e. one by which one of the players (White or Black) can always force a victory, or both can force a draw (see Solved game).It also means more generally solving chess-like games (i.e.

combinatorial games of perfect information), such as infinite ing to Zermelo's theorem, a hypothetically. In computational complexity theory, the complexity class EXPTIME (sometimes called EXP or DEXPTIME) is the set of all decision problems that are solvable by a deterministic Turing machine in exponential time, i.e., in O(2 p(n)) time, where p(n) is a polynomial function of E is one class in an exponential hierarchy of complexity classes with increasingly more complex.

a two-player zero-sum abstract strategy board game with perfect information as classified by John von Neumann. Chess has an estimated state-space complexity of 10 46 [2], the estimated game tree complexity of 10 is based on an average branching factor of 35 and an average game length of 80 ply [3].

$\begingroup$ Open problems are not illegal in MO; rather they are appropriate with certain limitations. You have to accept the current status of a problem as the "answer" to the MO posting, even if it doesn't answer the problem.

If you happen to already know that status, then you're not really asking a question. FRAENKEL AND D. LICHTENSTEIN, Computing a perfect strategy for n x n chess requires time exponential in n, J.

Combinatorial Theory Ser. A 31 (), Cited by: As brute force solutions are often exponential-time solutions, you can find the examples by reading the EXPTIME wikipedia page. Some examples are: Computing a perfect strategy for n×n chess requires time exponential in n. N by N checkers is Exptime complete.

The game GO with Japanese KO rules. Or have we perhaps proven there are no such problems. The exponential time taken by P is sublimated into the branching of the strategy from \(P'\) within these time bounds.

For the tower puzzle, the first move frames the middle step of transferring the bottom ring, then play branches into similar but separate combinations for the ‘before’ and ‘after’ stages of moving the other \(n-1\) by: 1.

I am not sure that every problem in NP have an exponential time algorithm. Since NP does not mean "not polynomial.", I think the answer is false. But I have no concrete reason about that.

Exponential in-tegrators are a class of time integration methods for solving initial value problems writtenintheform () u (t)=Au(t)+g(t,u(t)),u(tFile Size: KB. Hint: Take the $\ln$ of the expression to get $$(n+1)\ln n - \ln n. - n^\epsilon -n.$$ Now use $\ln n. =\sum_{k=1}^n \ln k > \int_1^n \ln x\, dx,$ which should be clear after staring down some rectangles to give up their information.

That integral can be evaluated exactly. Proceed. NP technically refers to decision problems, so let's give a formal definition of the NTH-PRIME decision problem: NTH-PRIME(n, X) is true iff the nth prime is equal to X.

Is the Sieve of Eratosthenes a polynomial-time algorithm for this decision. O(1) applies for classical chess only, not for generalized chess. But it is the latter one for which we assume not being in NP. Actually, in my answer up to this addendum, there is one prove lacking: The size of the limited tree (if N is fix) does not grow faster than exponentially with growing N (so the answer actually is incomplete!).

Exponential Growth and the Legend of Paal Paysam. Exponential Growth is an immensely powerful concept. To help us grasp it better let us use an ancient Indian chess legend as an example. The legend goes that the tradition of serving Paal Paysam to visiting pilgrims started after a game of chess between the local king and the lord Krishna himself.

x(t)=Ax(t),x(0)=x 0, (1) the matrix A is essentially non-negative if and only if it has the property that x(0) ≥ 0 implies x(t) ≥ 0. Clearly, many physical systems of (1) would have such a property and hence have an essentiallynon-negative A.

For the exponential of an essentially non-negative matrixA, we have recently obtained an.Computing the Exponential "e" in Java Problem: You can computer e using the following Taylor series. Write a program that displays the e value for i, andInitialize e and item to be 1 and keep adding a new item to e.

Solution.I'm not sure if this is what you meant, but computing arbitrary roots modulo a composite number IS the RSA-problem, which is considered hard.

I'm pretty sure that squaring the modulus won't make a difference in the hardness, as you still don't know the prime-factors, but don't think that it's "more" secure than with normal N, and it will certainly be slower due to the larger modulus.
