### Abstract

. We investigate the distribution of nonuniform complexities in uniform complexity classes. We prove that almost every problem decidable in exponential space has essentially maximum circuit-size and space-bounded Kolmogorov complexity almost everywhere. (The circuit-size lower bound actually exceeds, and thereby strengthens, the Shannon 2 n n lower bound for almost every problem, with no computability constraint.) In exponential time complexity classes, we prove that the strongest relativizable lower bounds hold almost everywhere for almost all problems. Finally, we show that infinite pseudorandom sequences have high nonuniform complexity almost everywhere. The results are unified by a new, more powerful formulation of the underlying measure theory, based on uniform systems of density functions, and by the introduction of a new nonuniform complexity measure, the selective Kolmogorov complexity.
