# On Arroyo-Figueroa's Proof that P≠NP

We critique Javier Arroyo-Figueroa's paper titled “The existence of the Tau one-way functions class as a proof that P≠NP,” which claims to prove P≠NP by showing the existence of a class of one-way functions. We summarize our best interpretation of Arroyo-Figueroa's argument, and show why it fails to prove the existence of one-way functions. Hence, we show that Arroyo-Figueroa fails to prove P≠NP.
