Geometric Complexity Theory: An Introduction for Geometers

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 38

This is survey of recent developments in, and a tutorial on, the approach to P v. NP and related questions called Geometric Complexity Theory (GCT). The article is written to be accessible to graduate students. Numerous open questions in algebraic geometry and representation theory relevant for GCT are presented.

Algebraic geometry is the geometric study of sets of solutions to polynomial equations over a field (or ring). In this book the author maintains a reasonable balance between rigor and intuition; so it retains the informal quality of lecture notes.
