Description

computational complexity presents outstanding research in computational complexity. Its subject is at the interface between mathematics and theoretical computer science, with a clear mathematical profile and strictly mathematical format. The central topics are: Models of computation, complexity bounds (with particular emphasis on lower bounds), complexity classes, trade-off results

for sequential and parallel computationfor 'general' (Boolean) and 'structured' computation (e.g. decision trees, arithmetic circuits)for deterministic, probabilistic, and nondeterministic computationworst case and average caseSpecific areas of concentration include:

Structure of complexity classes (reductions, relativization questions, degrees, derandomization)Algebraic complexity (bilinear complexity, computations for polynomials, groups, algebras, and representations)Cryptography, interactive proofs, pseudorandom generation
