Abstract. This paper has the following goals:
To survey some of the recent developments in the field of derandom-
ization.
To introduce a new notion of time-bounded Kolmogorov complex-
ity (KT), and show that it provides a useful tool for understanding

To illustrate the usefulness of KT, by answering a question that has
