|CSCI 460 - Theory of Computing|
An introduction to theoretical computer science and some key applications. Course examines models of computation, including finite automata, transducers, pushdown automata, and Turing machines. Concepts of formal language theory are applied to lexical analyzer and compiler construction in programming-language translation. The course will include an introduction to the notions of computability and computational complexity, concepts used in parallel computation, and some aspects of artificial intelligence.
