Thirteenth Annual IEEE Symposium on

Logic in Computer Science (LICS 1998)

Paper: On Proofs about Threshold Circuits and Counting Hierarchies (at LICS 1998)

Authors: Jan Johannsen Chris Pollett

Abstract

We define theories of Bounded Arithmetic characterizing classes of functions computable by constant-depth threshold circuits of polynomial and quasipolynomial size. Then we define certain second-order theories and show that they characterize the functions in the Counting Hierarchy. Finally we show that the former theories are isomorphic to the latter via the so-called RSUV-isomorphism
