**An Introduction to the Theory of Computation**

by Eitan Gurari

**Publisher**: Computer Science Pr 1989**ISBN/ASIN**: 0716781824**ISBN-13**: 9780716781820**Number of pages**: 600

**Description**:

This book explores some of the more important terminologies and questions concerning programs, computers, problems, and computation. The exploration reduces in many cases to a study of mathematical theories, such as those of automata and formal languages; theories that are interesting also in their own right. These theories provide abstract models that are easier to explore, because their formalisms avoid irrelevant details.
