Abstract
We present an efficient parallel algorithm for the general Monotone Circuit Value Problem (MCVP) with n gates and an underlying graph of bounded genus k. Our algorithm generalizes a recent result by Limaye et al. who showed that MCVP with toroidal embedding (genus 1) is in NC when the input contains a toroidal embedding of the circuit. In addition to extending this result from genus 1 to any bounded genus k, and unlike the work reported by Limaye et al., we do not require a precomputed embedding to be given. Most importantly, our results imply that given a P-complete problem, it is possible to find an algorithm that makes the problem fall into NC by fixing one or more parameters. Hence, we deduce the interesting analogy: Fixed Parameter Parallelizable (FPP) is with respect to P-complete what Fixed Parameter Tractable (FPT) is with respect to NP-complete. Similar work that uses treewidth as parameter was also presented by Elberfeld et al. in [6].
