Abstract We extend the lower bounds on the complexity of computing Betti numbers proved in [Buergisser, Cucker] to complex algebraic varieties. More precisely, we first prove that the problem of deciding connectedness of a complex affine or projective variety given as the zero set of integer polynomials is PSPACE-hard. Then we prove FPSPACE-hardness for the more general problem of computing Betti numbers of fixed order of a complex projective variety.
