"Introducing the Theory of Computation is the ideal text for any undergraduate, introductory course on formal languages, automata, and computability. The author provides a concise, yet complete, introduction to the important models of finite automata, grammars, and Turing machines, as well as to undecidability and the basics of complexity theory. Numerous problems, varying in level of difficulty, round out each chapter and allow students to test themselves on key topics. Answers to selected exercises are included as an appendix and a complete instructor's solutions manual is available on the text's website."--BOOK JACKET.Goddard, Wayne is the author of 'Introducing the Theory of Computation', published 2008 under ISBN 9780763741259 and ISBN 0763741256.
