  • Description
    This classic book on formal languages, automata theory, and computational complexity has been updated to present theoretical concepts in a concise and straightforward manner with the increase of hands-on, practical applications. This new edition comes with Gradiance, an online assessment tool developed for computer science.

    Gradiance is the most advanced online assessment tool developed for the computer science discipline. With its innovative underlying technology, Gradiance turns basic homework assignments and programming labs into an interactive learning experience for students. By using a series of “root questions” and hints, it not only tests a student’s capability, but actually simulates a one-on-one teacher-student tutorial that allows for the student to more easily learn the material. Through the programming labs, instructors are capable of testing, tracking, and honing their students’ skills, both in terms of syntax and semantics, with an unprecedented level of assessment never before offered.

    Salient Features
    • Presents theoretical concepts in a concise and accessible style.
    • Emphasizes modern applications of the theory
    • Uses numerous figures to help convey ideas
    • Provides more detail and intuition for definitions and proofs
    • Challenges readers with extensive exercises at various levels of difficulty at the end of each chapter
    • Includes additional practice and tests comprehension of important concepts withGradiance an online homework and tutorial system

    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.
