A tag is a keyword or label that categorizes your question with other, similar questions. Using the right tags makes it easier for others to find and answer your question.
Approximate representation of numbers as a fixed number of digits multiplied by a logarithmic scale.
A matching (aka **Independent Edge Set**) in a simple graph is the set of pairwise non-adjacent edges i.e. no two edges have common vertex.
Questions about which problems are semi-decidable, also known as computably enumerable, Turing recognizable or recursively enumerable.
First-order logic is a formal logical system used in mathematics, philosophy, linguistics, and computer science.
Permutations are arrangements of the numbers $1,\ldots,n$ in an arbitrary order.
Programming questions are off-topic here. Do not ask questions about how to write code in Python. However, conceptual questions about computer science are more appropriate. See our help center for the…
