    Description

    Introduction To Automata Theory is a book on computer science and internet theories presented by writers John E. Hopcroft, Jeffrey D. Ullman, and Rajeev Motwani.

    Summary Of The Book

    This book can be considered as a standard on formal languages, the automata theory, and computational complications. It has been greatly improved, in order to offer theoretical ideas in a brief and lucid way. There has also been a development of practical applications. The latest edition also provides the readers Gradiance, an online assessment feature.

    The book opens up many interesting aspects and points it out to the readers. It elaborates theoretical ideas in a brief and understandable manner. The book harps on latest practical illustrations of its theories. It employs the usage of an array of numbers to assist readers in visualizing concepts. It also tries to evoke interest in the readers with comprehensive questionnaires at different difficulty levels after every chapter. The book also offers supplementary practice and quizzes along with the understanding of important ideas with an online homework and tutorial tool called Gradiance.

    By means of the programming labs, lecturers can now enjoy the liberty of assessing, locating, and sharpening the performance of their students in short intervals. It can be carried out with regards to syntax as well as linguistics, with an unparalleled standard of testing never presented previously.

    About the Authors

    John Hopcroft is best known as an American computer scientist. In addition to his contribution to planar graphs, he is also widely acclaimed for the Hopcroft–Karp algorithm which searches for matches in bipartite graphs.

    Apart from this book, he is credited with authoring and co-authoring other books including Data Structures And Algorithms, The Design And Analysis Of Computer Algorithms, and Frontiers In Algorithmics.

    He obtained his master's degree and later, his PhD, from Stanford University. He served at Princeton University for a period of three years. After that, has been working at Cornell University. He is currently the IBM Professor of Engineering and Applied Mathematics in Computer Science at Cornell University.

    Jeffrey Ullman is a widely reputed computer scientist.

    Apart from this book, he is credited with authoring and co-authoring other books including Principles Of Compiler Design, Data Structures And Algorithms, and The Design And Analysis Of Computer Algorithms.

    His books on compilers, commonly referred to as the Dragon Book, theory of computation, commonly referred to as the Cinderella book, data structures, and databases are considered as references in their respective areas.

    He has been serving as a professor at Stanford University, as the Stanford W. Ascherman Professor of Computer Science. Ullman completed his Bachelor of Science in Engineering Mathematics from Columbia University. Later on, he earned his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University. Afterwards, he served for some years at Bell Labs. He then went on to become a professor at Princeton University.

    Rajeev Motwani was a reputed professor of Computer Science at Stanford University and an occasional writer.

    Apart from this book, he is credited with other works including What Can You Do With A Web In Your Pocket, Randomized Algorithms, and a paper on the Page Rank algorithm, the fundamentals for Google's search techniques.

    Motwani was a student of St Columba's School, New Delhi. He finished his B.Tech degree in Computer Science from IIT Kanpur and went on to earn his PhD degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley in 1988. He passed away in 2009 and is survived by his widow Asha Jadeja, and two daughters.

    SILLY MISTAKES!!!!??

    previous edition of this book is actually more better than this one. i can point out some mistakes, such as an nfa given in pno 53,66,67 and dfa in 59. but these mistakes are not in the previous edition and it is weird why this new mistakes had been introduced in this edition. i think
    EITHER
    1.The author may changed the examples and forgot to change the explanation
    OR
    2. In the book's acknowledgement they told that the publishers gave this book to a local author to adapt this book to In...

    Probably the best book on the topic

    I have read the topic from several other resources and can now say that this is probably the best book on automata and formal languages with decent introduction to turing machines.This is not a verbose book and if read with slides available on author's website gives very good understanding of the topic if you are getting into the subject for the first time.I will highly recommend this book for any novice as well as experienced reader.

    Strictly not for a beginner but works great for people with some introductory ideas !

    It's definitely not for the beginners who want to learn Theory of Computation from scratch. From my experience I can say that for the introductory ideas follow books by either Mishra or Peter Linz. Then go through this book. Only that way you'd be able to have the flavor of this book properly. The derivations, definitions and everything are written in a very easy and perceivable way. But again the same warning.. don't buy if you are a beginner. You won't understand one word of it and get frus...

    Probably The Best Book On this Topic For Self Study

    I highly recommend this book for a beginner and this is a perfect choice for someone who's looking for lots of examples. The proofs are formal and explicit and the definitions are very clear & easy to understand and also the notation and formatting are too good. Most importantly, the exercises are excellent, so depending on the level of your exams it will be good study material.

    good book

    the book is very good and well known throughout the world to be the best book of Automata. However, for beginners this book is not good. If you read this book as a beginner you will have difficulties in understanding the concepts.

    They reduced price after I bought it

    The price was Rs. 488 plus rs. 40 and now it is 445. :( And it is just a little book why is it so expensive? Even the DBMS boook with 800 pages is not that much costly.

    Excellent Book to Learn Automata Theory

    I have read this book during my engineering and it is compelled very well, the only discomfort we face in this book is to grab everything the author has to say. A must have book for all competitive exams in CSE, as most questions directly come from the exercise section of this book. I purchased this book from flipkart and the delivery was prompt and quick. The packaging was also great.

    Good book

    This book helps create an intuition and has excellent exercises which makes the reader think and work on the problem, instead of just looking on solved examples, which helps creating intuition. The topics are presented in extremely formally but they are described so could be easily understood than other books. This is a must read for them who has Theory of Computer Science and Automata Theory in their courses.

    Lack of solved example

    Good book for the Automata basic. I comes to know about this book from my friend. It quite useful to me, but lack of solved example/problem sometime make me to find out other references.
    Good thing about this book, if you start reading you will definitely forgot social media.
