1 Preliminaries We start by first showing that implementations do not enhance the power of a function family by much. In particular all properties defined in Chapter 4 are closed under appropriate forms of implementations. The following lemma illustrates closure under perfect implementations. 23 If F is a weakly positive (weakly negative / bijunctive / IHS-B+/ IHS-B—} family and F perfectly implements f , then f is also weakly positive (weakly negative / bijunctive / IHS-B+/ IHS-B-}. Proof: Let f(xi,...

Briefly, their proof, specialized to MAX SAT(^), goes as follows: Let k be the maximum arity of a constraint in F and let 0 = 2k. , and hence is expected to satisfy at least m//3 constraints. Thus every instance on m constraints has an assignment satisfying at least m/0 constraints. Further, such an assignment can be found deterministically using the "method of conditional probabilities" (see, for instance, [72]). The result for the weighted case is completely analogous. 3. 18 If every constraint of F can be strictly implemented by J-', then MAX SAT(^-") is AP-reducible to MAX SAT(T').

Thus these example functions serve as the unifying theme for all constraint families that lack a given property. As we will see later, this unification is central to our classification results. 1 Preliminaries We start by first showing that implementations do not enhance the power of a function family by much.
