Reviews

'The techniques described by Rajeev Motwani and Prabhaker Raghavan are wide-ranging and powerful, so this book is an important one. As far as I have been able to find out this is the only book on the entire subject ... this excellent volume does us proud!' American Scientist 'This book can serve as an excellent basis for a graduate course. It is highly recommended for students and researchers who wish to deepen their knowledge of the subject. Finally, I believe that the book, with its vast coverage, will be an invaluable source for active researchers in the field.' Y. Aumann, Computing Reviews
