Communication Complexity available in Paperback

- Cambridge University Press
Communication Complexity surveys this mathematical theory, concentrating on the question of how much communication is necessary for any particular process. The first part of the book is devoted to the simple two-party model introduced by Yao in 1979, which is still the most widely studied model. The second part treats newer models developed to deal with more complicated communication processes. Finally, the authors treat applications of these models, including computer networks, VLSI circuits, and data structures.
