# What are the consequences if $W[i]=W[i-1]$?

$FPT=W[1]$ does not collapse the $W$ hierarchy however falsifies $ETH$ belief. Is there non-trivial consequence if $W[i]=W[i-1]$ and any other consequence at $W[1]$?

• @Gamow There 'W[t]=W[t-1] implies W[P]=FPT' is asked and here it is more general. – Turbo May 19 '18 at 17:40
• @Turbo: Perhaps you could update your question and state precisely what it is that you would like to know and that is not already contained in the answer to the older question. – Gamow May 20 '18 at 16:37
