Thereafter, we introduce some complexity classes: P, NP and co−NP . 1 Asymptotic Notation By means of asymptotic notations, we can describe the running time of an algorithm. Before we give an abstract definition of the asymptotic notation, we will look at a simple algorithm, namely the Eucledian algorithm and then estimate its running time. Furthermore, we will see how the running time of the algorithm can be expressed in some asymptotic notations. First we start with the running time of some arithmetic operations, namely the addition and the division.

4. e. the operation ◦ is distributive over ∗. The ring (R, ∗, ◦) is a commutative ring, if the operation o is commutative. An element a ∈ R of the ring (R, ∗, ◦) is invertible or unit, if it is invertible in (R, ◦). The set of unit elements in a ring (R, ∗, ◦) forms a group under the operation o which is called the group of the units of R and is denoted by (R∗ , ◦). 2-4: The set of integers Z with the usual operations of addition and multiplication is a commutative ring, since 1. (Z, +) is an abelian group with zero element 0, and 2.

The most obvious combination of f and g is to form their product defined by the mapping g ◦ f from S into U, so that (g ◦ f )(s) = g(f (s)) for every s ∈ S. The mapping g ◦ f : f → g is denoted as composition or product of the mappings f and g. e h ◦ (g ◦ f ) = (h ◦ g) ◦ f . 2 Groups, Rings and Fields In this section we introduce some topics of elementary algebra. Especially the basic definitions and properties of groups, rings and fields will be considered. 1 semigroup Groups The theory of groups is one of the oldest parts of abstract algebra as well as one particularly rich in applications.
