Book Description

This beginning graduate textbook describes both recent achievements and classical results of computational complexity theory, including interactive proofs, PCP, derandomization, and quantum computation. It can be used as a reference, for self-study, or as a textbook. More than 300 exercises are included.

Computational complexity theory is at the core of theoretical computer science research. This book contains essentially all of the (many) exciting developments of the last two decades, with high level intuition and detailed technical proofs. It is a must for everyone interested in this field.
