This subject has been approved as either an AUS or as a Theoretical Computer Science concentration subject.
Efficient proof systems in (1) complexity theory including interactive proofs, efficient arguments, cs-proofs, probabilistically checkable proofs and delegation systems with applications to checking correctness of untrusted computation and memory storage in the cloud and approximation hardness; (2) cryptography: zero knowledge interactive and non-interactive proofs; and (3) quantum computation: interactive proofs and multi-proven interactive proofs with classical and quantum verifiers. The emphasis will be on current state of the art as well as research directions.
