The Theory of Computing Through Applications
Sudbury, MA, May 2009: Jones and Bartlett Publishers announces Algorithms,
Languages, Automata, & Compilers: A Practical Approach, which covers the standard
“theory of computing” topics through a strong emphasis on practical applications rather
than theorems and proofs. Finite automata, Turing machines, models of computation,
complexity, solvability, and other topics that form a foundation of modern programming
are discussed — first with a gentle theoretical orientation, and then applied through
programming code and practical examples. JFLAP projects and applications are
integrated throughout the book, and code, simulations, and projects are on an
accompanying CD-ROM.
KEY FEATURES:
• Covers the standard “theory of computing” topics through a strong emphasis on
practical applications rather than theorems and proofs
• Integrates JFLAP projects/exercises
• Comprehensive chapters on Turing Machines (Ch10 / 11), including a section on Turing
machine emulation with JFLAP system
• Includes CD-ROM with code, applications, simulations figures
