This book is an introduction to the rapidly growing theory of Pcompleteness -the branch of complexity theory that focuses on identifying the "hardest" problems in the class P of problems solvable in polynomial time. P -complete problems are of interest because they all appear to lack highly parallel solutions. That is, algorithm designers have failed to find NC algorithms, feasible highly parallel solutions that take time polynomial in the logarithm of the problem size while using only adoi:10.5860/choice.33-3959 fatcat:qjoueeu225gr7jvwdf6gkoxfbq
