Item description for Modern Cryptography, Probabilistic Proofs and Pseudorandomness (Algorithms and Combinatorics) by Oded Goldreich...

The book focuses on three related areas in the theory of computation. The areas are modern cryptography, the study of probabilistic proof systems, and the theory of computational pseudorandomness. The common theme is the interplay between randomness and computation. The book offers an introduction and extensive survey to each of these areas, presenting both the basic notions and the most important (sometimes advanced) results. The presentation is focused on the essentials and does not elaborate on details. In some cases it offers a novel and illuminating perspective. The reader may obtain from the book 1. A clear view of what each of these areas is all above. 2. Knowledge of the basic important notions and results in each area. 3. New insights into each of these areas. It is believed that the book may thus be useful both to a beginner (who has only some background in the theory of computing), and an expert in any of these areas.

Reviews - What do customers think about Modern Cryptography, Probabilistic Proofs and Pseudorandomness (Algorithms and Combinatorics)?

Good book for a better understanding of cryptography  Jun 23, 2002
This boook is not an introductory one although it could be read by almost everyone. It cover many facets of cryptography as randomness, zero knowledge proofs and interactive proofs. It also gives a good background of this ideas.

The book can be read by everyone who is interested on cryptography, secure intrnet and alike. But needs a background on CS.
The author hass a webpage with some of the material that lead to the book. It is a good idea to read them first and them decide on the book.

Excellent survey  May 30, 2000
The book contains an broad overview of the 3 fields in the title (probabilistic proofs stands for both Interactive Proofs, Zero-Knowledge & Probabilisticly Checkable Proofs).

While definitions are accurate (therefore technical), most proof are only given in sketches which enables the reader to understand the basic ideas behind them with out getting lost in the details.

I (as a graduate student in theoretical CS) felt it is non-technical enough as to be readable and yet improved both my knowledge of the field and its techniques, and my "maturity" regarding the concepts involved.
