The book Concrete Abstractions covers the programming and data structures basics. It will give first-time computer science students the opportunity to not only write programs, but to prove theorems and analyze algorithms as well.
by Susan Rodger - Duke University
These lecture notes present an introduction to theoretical computer science including studies of abstract machines, the language hierarchy from regular languages to recursively enumerable languages, noncomputability and complexity theory.
