Recent results on the internal, measure-theoretic structure of the exponential time complexity classes E = DTIME(2^linear) and E2 = DTIME(2^polynomial) are surveyed. The measure structure of these classes is seen to interact in informative ways with bi-immunity, complexity cores, polynomial-time many-one reducibility, circuit-size complexity, Kolmogorov complexity, and the density of hard languages. Possible implications for the structure of NP are also discussed.
