This is my small effort to make the topic NP-Completeness clear to students studying **Design and Analysis of Algorithms** or preparing for **GATE Computer Science**. Please use the following link to download the video lecture:

**NP-Complete-Lecture-By-Ankur-Gupta**

It’s in compressed zip format. Therefore first decompress it using some zip utility and then click on the file **“Launch.exe”** to watch the video.

Wait for sometime. It will start in few minutes.

in your lecture, you have told abt np, co-np problem using 3-cnf as example. there, when you say that a problem is np since there exists a soln that can be verifiable for the given problem statement, and it is co-np when no soln exist for the given problem domain.. so we say that both take exponential time.. am i correct?

Author

Co-NP means that you can’t have one certificate for verification. It’s not necessary that it takes exponential time.

Thanks ………….

need a help

Hi Sir,

Gate papers solutions are really very helpful,becoz in most of the books the answers are not correct and they confuse a lot lot…….

Sir plz provide the solutions for GATE 2006-Information Technology Paper.

And

In your website,For the below papers,The hyperlink is not able to open,please provide the solution for those also,

GATE 2012 Computer Science Paper

GATE 2011 Computer Science Paper

GATE 2010 Computer Science Paper

Thanks a lot…….You r great…………..

I am just m.sc cs student

Would u provide me TOC notes sir??

I think this topic is now removed from GATE syllabus. But anyways, it was nice to watch these lecture. It helped me in my college exams. Thanks.
