Review quote

an excellent reference manual. ... All the chapters are well written, and the extensive bibliography is useful. The authors have been extremely thorough and careful. ... the theory of P-completeness gives us important insights into the nature of the limits of parallel computation, and Greenlaw, Hoover, and Ruzzo have written an excellent reference work. I recommend it highly. * Eric Allender, Computing Reviews, July 1996. *show more
