5. 5. Language to Formalize Min-Max Reasoning LA is (Developed by Cook and Soltys.) Part of Cook’s program of Reverse Mathematics. Three sorts: indices ring elements matrices LA formalize linear algebra (Matrix Algebra). LA over Z (though all matrices are 0-1 matrices.) Since we want to count the number of 1s in A by ΣA. 3/12
6. 6. LA with ΣB 1 -Induction LA (i.e., LA with ΣB 0 -Induction), proves all the ring properties of matrices (eg.,(AB)C = A(BC)), and LA over Z translates into TC0 -Frege ([Cook-Soltys’04]). Bounded Matrix Quantiﬁers: We let (∃A ≤ n)α stands for (∃A)[|A| ≤ n ∧ α], and (∀A ≤ n)α stands for (∀A)[|A| ≤ n → α]. LA with ΣB 1 -Induction correspond to polytime reasoning and proves standard properties of the determinant, and translate into extended Frege. 4/12

15. 15. Hall’s SDR Theorem - Example Let X = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} be the 5-set of integers. Let S = {S1, S2, S3, S4} be a family of X. For instance, S1 = {2, 5}, S2 = {2, 5}, S3 = {1, 2, 3, 4}, S4 = {1, 2, 5}. Then D := (2, 5, 3, 1) is an SDR for (S1, S2, S3, S4). Now, if we replace S4 by S4 = {2, 5}, then the subsets no longer have an SDR. For S1 ∪ S2 ∪ S4 is a 2-set, and three elements are required to represent S1, S2, S4 9/12
16. 16. Dilworth’s Decomposition Theorem - Example {} {1} {2} {3} {1, 2} {1, 3} {2, 3} {1, 2, 3} Let P = (⊂, 2X ), i.e., all subsets of X with |X| = n with set inclusion, x < y ⇐⇒ x ⊂ y. (A) Suppose that the largest chain in P has size . Then P can be partitioned into antichains. We have 4-antichains [{}] , [{1}, {2}, {3}] , [{1, 2}, {1, 3}, {2, 3}] , and [{1, 2, 3}] . (B) Suppose that the largest antichain in P has size . Then P can be partitioned into disjoint chains. We have [{} ⊂ {1} ⊂ {1, 2} ⊂ {1, 2, 3}] , [{2} ⊂ {2, 3}] , and [{3} ⊂ {1, 3}]. 10/12
17. 17. Examples of LA formalization For example, concepts necessary to state KMM in LLA: Cover(A, α) := ∀i, j ≤ r(A)(A(i, j) = 1 → α(1, i) = 1 ∨ α(2, j) = 1) Select(A, β) := ∀i, j ≤ r(A)((β(i, j) = 1 → A(i, j) = 1) ∧ ∀k ≤ r(A)(β(i, j) = 1 → β(i, k) = 0 ∧ β(k, j) = 0)) 11/12
18. 18. Future Work Can LA-Theory prove KMM? What is the relationship between KMM and PHP? (Eg. LA ∪ PHP KMM?) Can LA ∪ KMM prove Hard Matrix Identities? We would like to know whether LA ∪ KMM can prove hard matrix identities, such as AB = I → BA = I. Of course, we already know from [TZ11] that (non-uniform) NC2 -Frege is suﬃcient to prove AB = I → BA = I, and from [Sol06] we know that ∃LA can prove them also. What about ∞-KMM? 12/12
