An Introduction to the Theory of Computation
by Eitan Gurari
Publisher: Computer Science Pr 1989
Number of pages: 600
This book explores some of the more important terminologies and questions concerning programs, computers, problems, and computation. The exploration reduces in many cases to a study of mathematical theories, such as those of automata and formal languages; theories that are interesting also in their own right. These theories provide abstract models that are easier to explore, because their formalisms avoid irrelevant details.

The book re-examines computer science, giving priority to resource tradeoffs and complexity classifications over the structure of machines and their relationships to languages. This viewpoint is motivated by more realistic computational models.

An introduction to the most important ideas in computing. It focuses on how to describe information processes by defining procedures, how to analyze the costs required to carry out a procedure, and the limits of what can be computed mechanically.

We will first present the most standard computational challenges met in Bayesian Statistics, focusing primarily on mixture estimation and on model choice issues, and then relate these problems with computational solutions.

The book on the fundamental algebraic structures in the mathematics of program construction focusing the algebraic properties of recursion and how these are applied to the generic solution of programming problems. The tutorial covers fixed point calculus.
