branching programs; complexity classes
Summary: [For the entire collection see Zbl 0635.00015.]
In the following new types of branching programs, so-called \(\Omega\)- branching programs, \(\Omega \subseteq {\mathbb{B}}_ 2\), are introduced. The complexity classes related to polynomial-size \(\Omega\)-branching programs will be completely classified. Beside of identifying a new class \({\mathcal P}_{\{\oplus \}-BP}=L_{\{\oplus \}}/poly\) between L/poly and P/poly new characterizations of such fundamental complexity classes, like NL/poly and P/poly are obtained.
