Publisher: Stanford University
Number of pages: 150

Description:
Communication complexity offers a clean theory that is extremely useful for proving lower bounds for lots of different fundamental problems. The two biggest goals of the course are: 1. Learn several canonical problems that have proved the most useful for proving lower bounds; 2. Learn how to reduce lower bounds for fundamental algorithmic problems to communication complexity lower bounds.
