Our objective is to provide an introduction to computer science as an intellectually rich and vibrant field rather than focusing exclusively on computer programming. While programming is certainly an important and pervasive element of our approach, we emphasize concepts and problem-solving over syntax and programming language features.

These lecture notes present an introduction to theoretical computer science including studies of abstract machines, the language hierarchy from regular languages to recursively enumerable languages, noncomputability and complexity theory.

The book Concrete Abstractions covers the programming and data structures basics. It will give first-time computer science students the opportunity to not only write programs, but to prove theorems and analyze algorithms as well.

This book provides a survey of basic mathematical objects, notation, and techniques useful in later computer science courses. It gives a brief introduction to some key topics: algorithm analysis and complexity, automata theory, and computability.

This text is an introduction to the formal study of computation. The course will provide students with a broad perspective of computer science and will acquaint them with various formal systems on which modern computer science is based.
