LH (complexity)

In computational complexity, the logarithmic time hierarchy (LH) is the complexity class of all computational problems solvable in a logarithmic amount of computation time on an alternating Turing machine with a bounded number of alternations. It is a special case of the hierarchy of bounded alternating Turing machines. It is equal to FO and to FO-uniform AC0.

The ith level of the logarithmic time hierarchy is the set of languages recognised by alternating Turing machines in logarithmic time with random access and i − 1 alternations, beginning with an existential state. LH is the union of all levels.

But noth­ing really changed: the LHS cagers didn't do much better than the LHS gridiron warriors - the only bright spot was Lenny Barongg, a three-sport man whose major one was basketball.
