CSCI 438 - Theory Of Computation

3 credits (Hrs: 3 Lec.)
Students will look abstractly at computers and what it means to be computable. Turing Machines, which appear to be powerful enough to serve as the basis for defining computability, will be studied. Students will learn that some questions are not computable by any computing machine. Regular, context-free languages, decidability and computational complexity will also be studied.

Prerequisite(s): CSCI 305   Course generally offered 2nd semester.
