Book Description

This undergraduate introduction to computational complexity offers a wide perspective on two central issues in theoretical computer science. The book starts with the relevant background in computability, including Turing machines, search and decision problems, algorithms, circuits, and complexity classes, and then focuses on the P-versus-NP Question and the theory of NP-completeness.
