# Deciding Monotone Duality and Identifying Frequent Itemsets in Quadratic Logspace

9 Dec 2012Georg Gottlob

The monotone duality problem is defined as follows: Given two monotone formulas f and g in iredundant DNF, decide whether f and g are dual. This problem is the same as duality testing for hypergraphs, that is, checking whether a hypergraph H consists of precisely all minimal transversals of a simple hypergraph G. By exploiting a recent problem-decomposition method by Boros and Makino (ICALP 2009), we show that duality testing for hypergraphs, and thus for monotone DNFs, is feasible in DSPACE[log^2 n], i.e., in quadratic logspace...
