In this thesis, we present some results in computational complexity. We consider two approaches for showing that #P has polynomial-size circuits. These approaches use ideas from the interactive proof for #3-SAT. We show that these approaches fail. We discuss whether there are instance checkers for languages complete for the class of approximate counting problems. We provide evidence that such instance checkers do not exist. We discuss the extent to which proofs of hierarchy theorems are constructive. We examine the problems that arise when trying to make the proof of Fortnow and Santhanam"s nonuniform BPP hierarchy theorem more constructive.

Theory of Computational Complexity presents a radical presentation of the fundamentals of complexity idea, along with NP-completeness idea, the polynomial-time.

Thus, complexity theory contains more questions, and relationships between questions, than actual answers. Nevertheless, we will learn about some fascinating insights, connections, and even few answers, that emerged from complexity theory research. Among the questions we will tackle (for various types of computational problems) are.

The book is well presented, fit for self studies, and covered most contents of computability and complexity. The book is slightly old, some of the latest result are not included, e.g., a P-algorithm of solving "prime problem" was found in This book is not good for advanced researchers in theoretical computer science, it is way to shallow/5(14).

Most results in analytic computational complexity assume that good initial approximations are available and deal with the iteration phase only.

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. 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.

So far we have focused on the time complexity of computational tasks, while relying on the natural association of efficiency with time. Relativization and algebrization show that proof methods in complexity theory which are “invariant” under certain high-level modifications to the computational model (access to arbitrary oracles, or low-degree extensions thereof) are not “fine-grained enough” to distinguish (even) pairs of classes that seem to be obviously different, such as \(\mathsf{NEXP}\) and Cited by: 4.

Some theorists seem able to hold in their minds, in one instant, the results of every FOCS, STOC, and Complexity paper ever published. Not every proof, of course - but those can be looked up if one knows the results and to whom they’re due.

This is a good introductory book of computational theory for students in computer science, good juniors, seniors and first year graduates. The book is well presented, fit for self studies, and covered most contents of computability and complexity.

The book is slightly old, some of the latest result are. Some of the most fundamental results in computational complexity are time hierarchies - that we can solve more decision problems on some model of computation when given a bit more of some resource.

Such hierarchies have been established for any reasonable model of computation that is syntactic, i.e., for which there exists a computable.

It IS indeed a subject on its own, and is as such different from Kolmogorov complexity. security. Almost all results in computational complexity and cryptography, while usually stated asymptotically, can be interpreted in concrete terms.

The two main themes of this book, logic and complexity, are both essential for understanding the main problems about the foundations of mathematics. Logical Foundations of Mathematics and Computational Complexity covers a broad spectrum of results in logic and set theory that are relevant to the foundations, as well as the results in computational complexity .I strongly recommend the book Computational Complexity: A Modern Approach by Arora and Barak.

When I took computational complexity at my Master level, the main textbook is Computational Complexity by Papadimitriou. But, maybe due to my background in Software Engineering, I found the writing in Papadimitriou challenging at times.
