In computational complexity theory, a computational problem is complete for a complexity class if it is, in a technical sense, among the "hardest" problems in the complexity class. More formally, a problem p is called hard for a complexity class C under a given type of reduction, if there exists a reduction from any problem in C to p. If a problem is both hard for the class and a member of the class, it is complete for that class. A problem that is complete for a class C is said to be C-complete, and the class of all problems complete for C is denoted C-complete. The first complete class to be defined and the most well-known is NP-complete, a class that contains many difficult-to-solve problems that arise in practice. Similarly, a problem hard for a class C is called C-hard, e.g. NP-hard. Normally it is assumed that the reduction in question does not have higher computational complexity than the class itself. Therefore it may be said that if a C-complete problem has a "computationally easy" solution, then all problems in "C" have an "easy" solution. Generally, complexity classes that have a recursive enumeration have known complete problems, whereas those that do not, don't have any known complete problems. For example, NP, co-NP, PLS, PPA all have known natural complete problems, while RP, ZPP, BPP and TFNP do not have any known complete problems.
