Tractable Structures for Constraint Satisfaction with Truth Tables

Daniel Marx
The way the graph structure of the constraints influences the complexity of constraint satisfaction problems (CSP) is well understood for bounded-arity constraints. The situation is less clear if there is no bound on the arities. In this case the answer depends also on how the constraints are represented in the input. We study this question for the truth table representation of constraints. We introduce a new hypergraph measure {\em adaptive width} and show that CSP...
