5506. Computational Complexity

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: Open to graduate students in the CSE program, others with consent. Recommended preparation: CSE 3502 and 3500; MATH 3160 or the equivalent.

Grading Basis: Graded

Systematic study of resource-bounded computation, including time and space complexity, hierarchy theorems, nondeterministic and randomized computation, and reduction and completeness. Advanced topics may be introduced such as relativized computation, derandomization, communication complexity, lower bounds on circuit complexity, and probabilistically checkable proofs.
