Overview

This is an introductory course on Theory of Computation intended for undergraduate students in computer science. In this course we will introduce various models of computation and study their power and limitations. We will also explore the properties of the corresponding language classes defined by these models and the relations between them. We will assume the student is comfortable in analytical reasoning and has preferably done a course on Data Structures and Algorithms.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: Computer Science undergraduate students.

PRE-REQUISITES:It is recommended that the candidate has done a course in Data Structures and Algorithms.

INDUSTRY SUPPORT: Content will be updated soon

by Ruhi completed this course, spending 6 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
it helped to solved automata and easy to implement after watching videos. easy to learn

and implemwent .we will find the easiest teqnics to solv questions
