Verification of aTAM systems

Several "verification problems" (answering the question of whether or not a given system has a specific property) have been studied in relation to the aTAM, and characterized by their complexity. Among them are:

1) Does aTAM system uniquely produce a given assembly? This was shown to require time polynomial in the size of the assembly and tile set by Adleman, et al. in [1].

2) Does aTAM system uniquely produce a given shape? This was shown to be in co-NP-complete for temperature 1 by Cannon, et al. in [2] and co-NP-complete for temperature 2 in [3] by Cheng, et al.

3) Is a given assembly terminal in aTAM system ? This was shown to require time linear in the size of the assembly and tile set in [1]

4) Given an aTAM system , does it produce a finite terminal assembly? An infinite terminal assembly? These were both shown to be uncomputable in [2].
