The only book around that teaches the lower bound theory well. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Requiring essentially no background apart from mathematical maturity, the book can be used as a reference for self-study for anyone interested in complexity, including physicists, mathematicians, and other scientists, as well as a textbook for a var This beginning graduate textbook describes both recent achievements and classical results of computational complexity theory. Philo rated it really liked it Nov 21, Madars rated it it was amazing Jan 22, I can fairly say that realizing this obvious truth blew my mind.

Probabilistically checkable proofs Modeern theorem. Sanjeev Moderb born January is an Indian American theoretical computer scientist who is best known for his work on probabilistically checkable proofs and, in particular, the PCP theorem.


Retrieved from ” https: Hemanth Teja rated it liked it Jan 11, For a long time there was no textbook for material beyond Sipser’s book but this book nicely fits in this gap and offers enough material for a graduate level course and more for personal exploration.

View all 22 comments. The exercises are interesting and have hints and the chapter notes are full of really useful references for further reading. The book starts with a broad introduction to the field and progresses to advanced results.

You are allowed to cooperate, but everyone has to write down their solution in their own words. The second part of the course will cover advanced toipcse. Diagonalization, time hierarchy theorems, Ladner’s Theorem Book: There will be three homeworksa take-home midterm and a take-home endterm. I am not sure I’d want to use this book’s problem sets as self-study; classics like Papadimitriou are still the best in this arena, IMHO.
