This is the second volume of a systematic two-volume presentation of the various areas of research in the field of structural complexity. The mathematical theory of computation has developed into a broad and rich discipline within which the theory of algorithmic complexity can be approached from several points of view. This volume is addressed to graduate students and researchers and assumes knowledge of the topics treated in the first volume but is otherwise nearly self-contained. Topics covered include vector machines, parallel computation, alternation, uniform circuit complexity, isomorphism, biimmunity and complexity cores, relativization and positive relativization, the low and high hierarchies, Kolmogorov complexity and probability classes. Numerous exercises and references are given.
