By Lance Fortnow

The P-NP challenge is crucial open challenge in laptop technology, if now not all of arithmetic. easily said, it asks no matter if each challenge whose answer should be speedy checked via computing device is also quick solved by means of machine. The Golden Ticket presents a nontechnical creation to P-NP, its wealthy background, and its algorithmic implications for every thing we do with pcs and past. Lance Fortnow strains the background and improvement of P-NP, giving examples from quite a few disciplines, together with economics, physics, and biology. He explores difficulties that trap the whole hassle of the P-NP obstacle, from studying the shortest course via all of the rides at Disney international to discovering huge teams of buddies on fb. The Golden Ticket explores what we actually can and can't in attaining computationally, describing the advantages and unforeseen demanding situations of this compelling problem.
