 This collection of recent papers on computational complexity theory grew out of activities during a special year at DIMACS. With contributions by some of the leading experts in the field, this book is of lasting value in this fastmoving field, providing expositions not found elsewhere. Although aimed primarily at researchers in complexity theory and graduate students in mathematics or computer science, the book is accessible to anyone with an undergraduate education in mathematics or computer science. By touching on some of the major topics in complexity theory, this book sheds light on this burgeoning area of research. Copublished with the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science beginning with Volume 8. Volumes 17 were copublished with the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM). Readership Researchers in complexity theory and graduate students in computer science or mathematics with interests in computation. Table of Contents  M.
