## Tropical semimodules of dimension two

St Petersburg Mathematical Journal. 2015. Vol. 26. P. 341-350.

Shitov Y.

In the paper, the concept of a semimodule is discussed, which is rather ill-behaved in tropical mathematics. The semimodules S in R^n having topological dimension two are studied, and it is shown that any such S has a finite weak dimension not exceeding n. For a fixed k, a polynomial time algorithm is constructed that decides whether S is contained in some tropical semimodule of weak dimension k or not. This result provides a solution of a problem that has been open for eight years.

The tropical arithmetic operations on R are defined as (a,b) -> min{a,b} and (a,b) -> a+b. We are interested in the concept of a semimodule, which is rather ill-behaved in tropical mathematics. In our paper we study the semimodules S in R^n having topological dimension two, and we show that any such S has always ...

Let $A$ be an $m\times n$ matrix with nonnegative real entries. The PSD rank of $A$ is the smallest integer $k$ for which there exist $k\times k$ real PSD matrices $B_1,\ldots,B_m$, $C_1,\ldots,C_n$ satisfying $A(i|j)=\operatorname{tr}(B_iC_j)$ for all $i,j$. This paper determines the computational complexity status of the PSD rank. Namely, we show that the problem of ...

We investigate the Kapranov rank functions of tropical matrices for different ground fields. For any infinite ground field we show that the rank-product inequality holds for Kapranov rank, and we prove that the Kapranov rank respects Green’s preorders on the semigroup of tropical n-by-n matrices. The rank-product inequality is shown to fail for Kapranov rank ...

We design temporal description logics (TDLs) suitable for reasoning about temporal conceptual data models and investigate their computational complexity. Our formalisms are based on DL-Lite logics with three types of concept inclusions (ranging from atomic concept inclusions and disjointness to the full Booleans), as well as cardinality constraints and role inclusions. The logics are interpreted ...

This paper investigates the computational complexity of deciding if a given finite idempotent algebra has a ternary term operation m that satisfies the minority equations m(y,x,x)≈m(x,y,x)≈m(x,x,y)≈y . We show that a common polynomial-time approach to testing for this type of condition will not work in this case and that this decision problem lies in the class NP. ...

In this paper, the single-track railway scheduling problem with two stations and several segments of the track is considered. Two subsets of trains are given, where trains from the first subset go from the first station to the second station, and trains from the second subset go in the opposite direction. The speed of trains ...

The notion of a boundary graph property was recently introduced as a relaxation of that of a minimal property and was applied to several problems of both algorithmic and combinatorial nature. In the present paper, we first survey recent results related to this notion and then apply it to two algorithmic graph problems: Hamiltonian cycle ...

Matrix factorization problems over various semirings naturally arise in different contexts of modern pure and applied mathematics. These problems are very hard in general and cause computational difficulties in applications. We give a survey of what is known on the algorithmic complexity of Boolean, tropical, nonnegative, and positive semidefinite factorizations, and we examine the behavior ...

Two-stage superposition choice procedures, which sequentially apply two choice procedures so that the result of the first choice procedure is the input for the second choice procedure, are studied. We define which of them satisfy given normative conditions, showing how a final choice is changed due to the changes of preferences or a set of ...

The notion of a boundary class of graphs is a helpful tool for the computational complexity analysis of graph theory problems in the family of hereditary classes.

It is shown that products and expanding relativized products of propositional modal logics where one component is the minimal monomodal logic K are polynomial-time reducible to their single-variable fragments. Therefore, the nown lower bound complexity and undecidability results for such logics are extended to their single-variable fragments. Similar results are obtained for products where one component is a polymodal logic with a K-style ...
