Mike Trick’s post on the status of P=NP is required reading. He writes about a new review paper on the status of P=NP (by Lance Fortnow at Northwestern) and its corresponding New York Times article. I had not heard about either. There have been a few recent developments on the P=NP front (check out the blog Godel’s Lost Letter and P=NP for updates). I have trouble keeping track of all of the news and had always felt like a review article was needed. I am thrilled that one now exists, along with the newspaper article to explain the concept more clearly to non-experts. I will be using both in some of my classes. For more info, please check out Mike Trick’s blog post.
