Abstract:

We show that the th largest subset problem and the th largest -tuple problem are in PP and hard for PP under polynomial-time Turing reductions. Several problems from the literature were previously shown NP-hard via reductions from those two problems, and by our main result they become PP-hard as well. We also provide complementary PP-upper bounds for some of them.
