Synopsis: This highly technical introduction to formal languages in computer science covers all areas of mainstream formal language theory, including such topics as operations on languages, context-sensitive languages, automata, decidability, syntax analysis, derivation languages, and more. Geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students, the treatment examines mathematical topics related to mathematical logic, set theory, and linguistics. All subjects are integral to the theory of computation.
Numerous worked examples appear throughout the book, and end-of-chapter exercises enable readers to apply theory and methods to real-life problems. Elegant mathematical proofs are provided for almost all theorems.
About the Author: Gyorgy Revesz is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
