NP = P

Recommended Posts

I'm currently studying for my exam in my course of algorithm. And I was asking myself, what will happen if a problem NP (or NP-Complete) can be resolve now in polynomial time ?? What will be the value of a such algorithm (educational, money, ...) ?? Many program using the ancien NP algorithm will have to be adapt in to the P algorithm... I would like to read your answer on that, and if there is already a thread on this... sorry!

I don't have the link, but I believe the Chicago Art Institute is the place that is offering a $million for a proof of NP = P or NP != P. Some stipulations are that you have to publish your proof in a known math journal and they will pay the money after a year of no one disproving it.

Something like that. Cheers.
