### Abstract:

The article is based on a series of lectures given by the authors in 1995, where the notes were scribed by the attending students. (The detailed list of scribes and other contributors can be found in the Acknowledgements section at the end of the manuscript.) The current version is essentially the same, with a few minor changes. We note that this publication takes place a decade after the lectures were given. Much has happened in the area of pseudorandomness and derandomization since, and perhaps a somewhat different viewpoint, different material, and different style would be chosen were these lectures given today. Still, the material presented is self contained, and is a prime manifestation of the "derandomization" paradigm. The material does lack references to newer work though. We recommend the reader interested in randomness, derandomization and their interplay with computational complexity to consult the following books and surveys, as well as their extensive bibliography.
