Expressing versus Proving: Relating Forms of Complexity in Logic

A. Kolokolova
2010 Journal of Logic and Computation  
In particular, we show how the complexity of logics in the setting of finite model theory is used to obtain results in bounded arithmetic, stating which functions are provably total in certain weak systems  ...  of arithmetic.  ...  The results on connections between finite model theory and bounded arithmetic mentioned here come from my joint work with Stephen Cook (which resulted in my PhD thesis).  ...

Queries with arithmetical constraints

Stéphane Grumbach, Jianwen Su
1997 Theoretical Computer Science  
We prove in particular that linear queries can be evaluated in AC0 over finite integer databases, and in NC' over linear constraint databases. This improves previously known bounds.  ...  We prove that these two queries are first-order definable in the presence of (enough) arithmetic.  ...  to y in G. dy 'dz Vk Vk' Vk" Theorem 4. 8 . 8 Every generic query in the arithmetical hierarchy is definable in the context structure (N, <, +, x).  ...

Closure Properties of Weak Systems of Bounded Arithmetic [chapter]

Antonina Kolokolova
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This work generalizes the results of [8] and [9] 1 .  ...  In this paper we study the properties of systems of bounded arithmetic capturing small complexity classes and state conditions sufficient for such systems to capture the corresponding complexity class  ...  In particular, the main ideas used for the SL theory were suggested to me by him.  ...

Therefore generalizations of the numerical spaces mentioned above can be studied as special cases of the theory and all operations in the subsets can be defined by semimorphism.  ...  In the elaboration of the theory the authors were motivated by principles of geometry where the structures of the spaces occurring are defined as invariants with respect to a group of transformations.  ... 

An Independence Result for Intuitionistic Bounded Arithmetic

Morteza Moniri
2006 Journal of Logic and Computation  
This implies the unprovability of the scheme ¬¬PIND(Σ b+ 1 ) in the mentioned theory. However, this theory contains the sentence ∀x, y¬¬∃z ≤ y(x ≤ |y| → x = |z|).  ...  The above independence result is proved by constructing an ω-chain of submodels of a countable model of S 2 + Ω 3 + ¬exp such that none of the worlds in the chain satisfies the sentence, and interpreting  ...  Acknowledgement This research was in part supported by a grant from IPM (No. CS1383-4-07).  ...

On the Power of Ordering in Linear Arithmetic Theories

Dmitry Chistikov, Christoph Haase, Emanuela Merelli, Anuj Dawar, Artur Czumaj
2020 International Colloquium on Automata, Languages and Programming  
We study the problems of deciding whether a relation definable by a first-order formula in linear rational or linear integer arithmetic with an order relation is definable in absence of the order relation  ...  Our contribution is to establish a full geometric characterisation of those sets definable without order which in turn enables us to prove coNP-completeness of this problem over the rationals and to establish  ...  The complexity upper bounds we obtain in this paper rely on bounds on the constants in the generator representation of sets definable in linear arithmetic theories.  ...
