Introduction to Computational Complexity
by Martin Tompa
Number of pages: 85
These are the lecture notes from a graduate course on Computational Complexity taught at the University of Washington. This text adopts some approaches that will appear unconventional. For example, alternating Turing machines are introduced very early, and deterministic and nondeterministic Turing machines treated as special cases. This simplifies many proofs, such as that of Savitch's Theorem, the P-completeness of the circuit value problem, the NP-completeness of the satisfiability problem, and the PSPACE-completeness of the quantified Boolean formula problem.

An introductory textbook on the design and analysis of algorithms. Recursive algorithms are illustrated by Quicksort, FFT, and fast matrix multiplications. Algorithms in number theory are discussed with some applications to public key encryption.

Notes from a graduate courses on Computational Complexity. The first 15 lectures cover fundamentals, the remaining is advanced material: Hastad's optimal inapproximability results, lower bounds for parity in bounded depth-circuits, and more.

The rapid growth of parallel complexity theory has led to a proliferation of parallel machine models. This book presents a unified theory of parallel computation based on a network model. It is the first such synthesis in book form.
