Uwe Schöning, Randall J. Pruim. While I was visiting Boston University during the 1996-97 academic year, I noticed a small book, written in German, on a shelf in Steve Homer's office. Curious, I borrowed it for my train ride home and began reading one of the chapters. I liked the style and format of the book so much that over the course of the next few months I frequently found myself reaching for it and working through one chapter or another.

Uwe Schöning (Author), Randall J. Pruim (Author), R. Pruim (Translator) & 0 more. This book introduces some of the most important results in theoretical computer science. The "gems" are central problems and their solutions from the areas of computability, logic, circuit theory, and complexity. The text presents complete proofs in understandable form, as well as previously open problems that have found a (perhaps unexpected) solution, complex proofs from bottom drawers, probabilistic constructions, and much, much more.

This book introduces some of the most important results in theoretical computer science. With over 240 intriguing exercises (elegant solutions for which are supplied), the text also challenges the reader to do some active work. More by Uwe Schöning. Algorithmen - kurzgefasst.

January 2007 · Lecture Notes in Computer Science. It is common practice in both theoretical computer science and theoretical physics to describe the (static) logic of a system by means of a complete lattice.

This book assembles some of the most important problems and solutions in theoretical computer science-from computability, logic, circuit theory, and complexity. The book presents these important results with complete proofs in an understandable form. It also presents previously open problems that have found (perhaps unexpected) solutions, and challenges the reader to pursue further active research in computer science.

This book is somewhat similar to another wonderful book by Springer-Verlag: "Proof from the Book" by Aigner and Ziegler. Both books illustrate the sheer beauty of selected theorems and proof techniques rather than develop systematically a discipline. As a result, reading is an adventure rather than a task. The pace is brisk, the writing style is direct. The reader is left with the impression that there is much research to do, and that mathematics is not cast in stone or heavy handbooks, but is a growing body of knowledge. Therefore, I would suggest this book to any beginning researcher in Computer Science, Mathematics, or Operation Research.
There are 26 lectures, covering well-known topics as well as rather obscure ones. To give the reader a flavor of the book here are some:
PAC-learning and Occam's razor;
Kolmogorov complexity, the universal distribution, and worst-case vs. average-case;
Hilbert's 10th problem;
P=NP with probability;
The Berman-Hartmanis conjecture;
Lower bounds for the parity function;
Quantum search algorithms.
The book is suitable for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. Overall, this book proves once again that Springer-Verlag is among the best publishers in the mathematical sciences, and is definitely the most innovative in mathematical education.

This book gives the reader an introduction to the beauty and complexity of many different research areas in theoretical computer science.

Each chapter is self-contained, and there are no exercises at the end of a chapter. Instead, the exercises are sprinkled throughout each chapter and help to develop the results presented. This interactive style forces one to think more deeply about each proof.

Of course, the interactive style and the depth of some of the results make this book a very slow and hard read. However, I would say, the book is worth every hour spent on it.

this book realy makes you see the beauty in theoretical computer science.
