I need to detect whether a binary pattern $P$ of length $m$ occurs in a binary text $T$ of length $n$ where $m < n$. I want to state an algorithm that runs in time $O(n)$ where we assume that ...
Is the number of coin tosses of a probabilistic Turing machine a Blum complexity measure?
I read that the number of coin tosses of a probabilistic Turing machine (PTM) is not a Blum complexity measure. Why? Clarification: Note that since the execution of the machine is not deterministic, ...
