We present discounted payoff games, which are one of a number of two-player zero-sum games of infinite duration played on finite graphs that have the property that the natural associated decision problem is in NP and coNP, yet no polynomial-time algorithms are known. We then present the P-matrix linear complementarity problem (LCP), for which the existence of a polynomial-time algorithm is also a major open problem. LCPs generalize LPs and the bimatrix game equilibrium problem. Finally, we present a simple reduction from discounted payoff games to P-matrix LCPs.
Joint work with Hugo Gimbert and Marcin Jurdziński.
