    Revisiting the thirty years-old notions of resource-bounded immunity and simplicity, we investigate the structural characteristics of various immunity notions: strong immunity, almost immunity, and hyperimmunity as well as their corresponding simplicity notions. We also study limited immunity and simplicity, called k-immunity and feasible k-immunity, and their simplicity notions. Finally, we propose the k-immune hypothesis as a working hypothesis that guarantees the existence of simple sets in NP.Comment: This is a complete version of the conference paper that appeared in the Proceedings of the 3rd IFIP International Conference on Theoretical Computer Science, Kluwer Academic Publishers, pp.81-95, Toulouse, France, August 23-26, 200

    The Complexity of Scheduling for p-norms of Flow and Stretch

    We consider computing optimal k-norm preemptive schedules of jobs that arrive over time. In particular, we show that computing the optimal k-norm of flow schedule, is strongly NP-hard for k in (0, 1) and integers k in (1, infinity). Further we show that computing the optimal k-norm of stretch schedule, is strongly NP-hard for k in (0, 1) and integers k in (1, infinity).Comment: Conference version accepted to IPCO 201
