Title: Godel, von Neumann and the P=?NP Problem
Authors: Hartmanis, Juris
Keywords: computer science
technical report
Issue Date: Apr-1989
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: In a 1956 letter, Godel asked von Neumann about the computational complexity of an NP complete problem. In this column, we review the historic setting of this period, discuss Godel's amazing letter and why von Neumann did not solve the P = ?NP problem.
