Even my graduate students have to read sections multiple times to “get it”.

I did not read all the chapters; I only read those that were relevant to my project and I had not seen before in other texts.

If my teacher did not assign problems from the book, I would not have not have bought it. The development of abstract maxhines continues with the Church-Turing thesis and computability theory. Computational complexity and NP-completeness are introduced by analyzing the computations of Turing machines.

Recommended, with some reservations Even so, this book does a superb job of tying theory to application lanvuages. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? First, the author’s claim that this is a book for undergrads is not credible except perhaps at MIT or CalTech. I would recommend that one be well grounded in set theory, recursion and mathematical induction before attempting to read this book.

Even though I received the book within the expected delivery date, it was pretty late. Chapter 6 covers Finite Automata. The first one I got had dents in the sides of the pages and the front cover was too long not cut to length. The replacement was only slightly less damaged, and the front cover was just as poorly cut, but the pages curved out to meet it as well.

Languages and Machines

I found it best not to read the chapters in orders, instead I read them in the following order which helped to understand the material better; 1,2,6,7,3,4,11,12 My only complaint: Topics covered include the theory of formal languages and automata, computability, computational complexity, and deterministic parsing of context-free languages.


Lastly, Sudkamp’s proofs are extremely dry and machinea difficult to follow.
