Michael Sipser, "Introduction to the Theory of Computation", Course Technology, 13 December, 1996.

ISBN: 053494728X

"Intended as an upper-level undergraduate or introductory graduate text in computer science theory," this book lucidly covers the key concepts and theorems of the theory of computation. The presentation is remarkably clear; for example, the "proof idea," which offers the reader an intuitive feel for how the proof was constructed, accompanies many of the theorems and a proof. Introduction to the Theory of Computation covers the usual topics for this type of text plus it features a solid section on complexity theory--including an entire chapter on space complexity. The final chapter introduces more advanced topics, such as the discussion of complexity classes associated with probabilistic algorithms.

Other subject areas related to Introduction to the Theory of Computation (possibly beyond the scope of this System Dynamics Glossary) include: Advanced, Computational complexity, Computer Bks - General Information, Discrete Mathematics, General, Logic, Machine Learning, Machine theory, Mathematics, Science/Mathematics, Systems Analysis, Computers / Information Theory.
