On Census Complexity and Sparseness of NP Complete Sets
Hartmanis, Juris; Mahaney, Stephen R.
In this note we show that if there are sparse NP complete sets with a polynomial time computable census function then $P=NP$. We also derive related results about the complexity of the census function for context-sensitive languages and $\log n$-tape bounded languages.
