Scott Aaronson via DJ Strouse. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I can fairly say that realizing this obvious truth blew my mind. Computer scientists don’t know nearly enough of the rich history of their study I’m regularly scandalized when I run into graduate students — not the ladies and man-ladies in things like Human-Computer Interaction, but real apprentice computer scientists — who don’t know the names of Church, Rabin, Aho, Hamming and Hoare.

He is a coauthor with Boaz Barak of the book Computational Complexity: Boaz Barak is an assistant professor in the department of computer science at Princeton University. No trivia or quizzes yet. The heavy emphasis throughout on the dual miracles of randomization and modern crypto including more advanced topics like derandomization, the probabilistic complexity classes, pseudorandomization and hardness amplification will hopefully result in these topics being more deeply embedded within classical theory classes, as they should be.


I am a theoretical Physicist and I consider myself to be fairly well versed in advanced mathematics, but I would probably want to read a book that is at a level just below this one in order to familiarize myself with the notational conventions.

Towards the end of the course, you might be required to read one research paper of your choosing and present it computationall class. A very comprehensive book on complexity.

Fitzmorris Professor of Computer Science at Princeton Universityand his bara interests include computational complexity theoryuses of randomness in computation, probabilistically checkable proofs, computing approximate solutions to NP-hard problems, and geometric embeddings of metric spaces.
