Abstract in LaTeX format:
The problem: Given an integral matrix $A$, an
integral vector $b$ and some rational vector $x$, decide whether $x$
is outside the elementary closure $\{ x \in \R^n \mid Ax \leq b
\}'$, is NP-complete. This result is achieved by an
extension of a result by Caprara and Fischetti.
