A new multilayered PCP and the hardness of hypergraph vertex cover
Given a k-uniform hypergraph, the Ek-Vertex-Cover problem is to find the smallest subset of vertices that intersects every hyperedge. We present a new multilayered PCP constructi...

Inapproximability of Hypergraph Vertex Cover and Applications to Scheduling Problems
Assuming the Unique Games Conjecture (UGC), we show optimal inapproximability results for two classic scheduling problems. We obtain a hardness of 2 − ε for the problem of mini...

Solving #SAT using vertex covers
Abstract We propose an exact algorithm for counting the models of propositional formulas in conjunctive normal form (CNF). Our algorithm is based on the detection of strong backdoo...
