Suppose, for example, that m and n are two numbers given in decimal notation with one written above the other and their right ends aligned. Then to add m and n we start at the right and proceed digit-by-digit to the left writing down the sum. , can be bounded by polynomials in the lengths of the numbers involved, and this seems to be a property of simply functions in general. This suggests that we consider the class, which I will call Y ,of all functions having this property. Edmonds [ 1965a1, showing the polynomial solvability of the matching problem: For practical purposes computational details are vital.

Y. ] The class MY was first studied by Edmonds [1965a,b], Cook [1971], and Karp [1972] (cf. Garey and Johnson [1979]). Most of the problems occurring in this text, and many combinatorial optimization problems, turn out to belong to ,VIP. Informally, the class NY can be described as the class of those decision problems 2’ satisfying: (7) for any Z E ~ the , fact that z is in 2’ has a proof of length polynomially bounded by the size of z. More formally, a decision problem 9c C* belongs to M P if there exists a E C* x C* and a polynomial 4 such polynomially solvable decision problem 9’ that for each z in C*: (8) z~2’-3y~C*:(z,y ) ~ 2 ”and size ( y )< &size(z)).

E. Q’Q = I ) and U is upper triangular. u = h can be replaced by U s = QTh,which is easy to solve. u - h 11 = 11 U s - QThl’, which last form is easy to minimize. Gauss used the method in determining the orbit of the planetoid Pallas (Gauss [181 I], cf. Goldstine [1977: Sec. 101) and in geodesy (Gauss [1828]). u = L - ‘ h . In a letter of 26th December 1823 to C. L. Gerling, Gauss [I8231 described an alternative method for solving linear equations of type ATAx = ATh, namely an iterative method (called by Gauss an ‘indirect’ method).
