Abstract: I discuss my encounters with mechanical theorem proving, NPcompleteness, propositional proof systems, and formal theories capturing complexity classes.
Bio: Stephen Cook is Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Computer Science at University of Toronto. He has made several seminal contributions to logic and computational complexity. He formalized the notion of NPcompleteness in a 1971 paper, and received the Turing award in 1982 for his work on computational complexity. His conjecture that P is not equal to NP remains open and is among the seven famous Clay Millennium Prize problems.
