Parallel Complexity Theory
by Ian Parberry - Prentice Hall
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.

Complexity Theory
by Johan HÃ¥stad
This set of notes gives the broad picture of modern complexity theory, defines the basic complexity classes, gives some examples of each complexity class and proves the most standard relations. The author emphasizes the ideas involved in the proofs.
