title: | Predecessor and Permutation Existence Problems for Sequential Dynamical Systems. |

keywords: | Discrete Dynamical Systems, Cellular Automata, Predecessor Existence, Permutation Existence, Computational Complexity |

abstract: | A class of finite discrete dynamical systems, called Sequential Dynamical Systems (SDSs), was introduced in [BR99] as a formal model for analyzing simulation systems. Here, we address the complexity of two basic problems and their generalizations for SDSs. |

The first *source* gives you
the `gzipped' PostScript, the second the plain PostScript and the
third the format for the Adobe accrobat reader. Depending on the
installation of your web browser, at least one of these should
(after some amount of time) pop up a window for you that shows
the full article. If this is not the case, you should contact
your system administrator to install your browser
correctly.

Due to limitations of your local software, the two formats may show up differently on your screen. If eg you use xpdf to visualize pdf, some of the graphics in the file may not come across. On the other hand, pdf has a capacity of giving links to sections, bibliography and external references that will not appear with PostScript.
