An introduction to the most important ideas in computing. It focuses on how to describe information processes by defining procedures, how to analyze the costs required to carry out a procedure, and the limits of what can be computed mechanically.
by Eitan Gurari - Computer Science Pr
The book explores questions and terminologies concerning programs, computers, and computation. The exploration reduces to a study of mathematical theories, such as those of automata and formal languages, theories interesting in their own right.
by John E. Savage - Addison-Wesley
The book re-examines computer science, giving priority to resource tradeoffs and complexity classifications over the structure of machines and their relationships to languages. This viewpoint is motivated by more realistic computational models.
by C. D. H. Cooper - Macquarie University
This is a text on discrete mathematics. It includes chapters on logic, set theory and strings and languages. There are some chapters on finite-state machines, some chapters on Turing machines and computability, and a couple of chapters on codes.
