      Michael Sipser, MIT, author of Introduction to the Theory of Computation "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 Brand: Cambridge University Press.   2) Good- The book would get to include material that is appropriate but came out after it was published. 3) Good- The book would get to include material that is appropriate but the authors forgot to include the first time around. 4) Bad- For referencing the book or for book reviews of the book, you are looking at different objects.

    Mathematics and Computation provides a broad, conceptual overview of computational complexity theory—the mathematical study of efficient computation. With important practical applications to computer science and industry, computational complexity theory has evolved into a highly interdisciplinary field, with strong links to most mathematical areas and to a growing number of scientific endeavors.   Complexity theory is a central field of the theoretical foundations of computer science. It is concerned with the general study of the intrinsic complexity of computational tasks; that is, it addresses the question of what can be achieved within limited time (and/or with other limited natural computational resources). This book offers a conceptual perspective on complexity theory.5/5(1).

    I recently attended a lecture on an introduction to computation complexity and I am looking to find out more, I haven't studied computer science or discrete mathmateics at university and I was wondering if anyone could recommend any relatively simple books or . The classical theory of computation has its origins in the work of Goedel, Turing, Church, and Kleene and has been an extraordinarily successful framework for theoretical computer science. The thesis of this book, however, is that it provides an inadequate foundation for modern scientific computation where most of the algorithms are real number algorithms.

Theory of computation. • Graduate Complexity course. The book can serve as a text for a graduate complexity course that prepares graduate students interested in theory to do research in complexity and related areas. Such a course can use parts of Part I to review basic material, and then move on to the advanced topics of Parts II and III.

The book is surprisingly self-contained, in that it develops all necessary mathematical prerequisites from such diverse field as computability, logic, number theory, combinatorics, and probability.

In computer science, the computational complexity or simply complexity of an algorithm is the amount of resources required to run it.

Particular focus is given to time and memory requirements. As the amount of resources required to run an algorithm generally varies with the size of the input, the complexity is typically expressed as a function n → f(n), where n is the size of the input and. Computational complexity theory provides a framework for understanding the cost of solving computational problems, as measured by the requirement for resources such as time and space.

Computational complexity theory focuses on classifying computational problems according to their inherent difficulty, and relating these classes to each other. A computational problem is a task solved by a computer. A computation problem is solvable by mechanical application of mathematical steps, such as an algorithm.

A problem is regarded as inherently difficult if its solution requires.
