### Complexity of convex polytope volume calculation ? (Volume of Voronoi cell) (Error probability)

Assume I have polytope in R^k given by N (k<< N) linear inequalities (A_i x < b_i).
I guess complexity of its volume calculate is higher than linear in "N", am I right ?
(Is the complexity ...

### Distribution of the computable numbers on the real number line

If we order all the positive computable real numbers $r_1,r_2,r_3...$ by their Kolmogorov complexity in some language $L$, then make a histogram plot of the $r_i$ on the real line, and we scale it ...

### Indexing schemes of binary sequences

I am looking for "low-complexity" indexing methods to enumerate binary sequences of a given length and a given weight.
Formally, let $T_k^n = \{x_1^n \in \{0,1\}^n: \sum_{i=1}^n x_i = k\}$. How to ...

### reversible Turing machines

Hello,
Let T be a Turing machine such that
1) it operates on the alphabet {0,1},
2) its set of states is A
3) the language it accepts is $L$ .
Does there exists a Turing machine S which also ...
