Automata theory is also closely related to formal language theory, [5] as the automata are often classified by the class of formal languages they are able to recognize.

An automaton can be a finite representation of a formal language that may be an infinite set. Automata are used as theoretical models for computing machines, and are used for proofs about computability. Formal Language theory[ edit ] Main article: Formal language Set inclusions described by the Chomsky hierarchy Language theory is a branch of mathematics concerned with describing languages as a set of operations over an alphabet.

Elements of the Theory of Computation : United States Edition

It is closely linked with automata theory, as automata are used to generate and recognize formal languages. There are several classes of formal languages, each allowing more complex language specification than the one before it, i.

Chomsky hierarchy , [6] and each corresponding to a class of automata which recognizes it. Because automata are used as models for computation, formal languages are the preferred mode of specification for any problem that must be computed. Main article: Computability theory Computability theory deals primarily with the question of the extent to which a problem is solvable on a computer. The statement that the halting problem cannot be solved by a Turing machine [7] is one of the most important results in computability theory, as it is an example of a concrete problem that is both easy to formulate and impossible to solve using a Turing machine.

United States Edition. This is the long awaited Second Edition of Lewis and Papadimitriou's best-selling theory of computation text.

In this substantially modified edition, the authors have enhanced the clarity of their presentation by making the material more accessible to a broader undergraduate audience with no special mathematical experience.

Transition table. An interesting question is whether the computation model represented by concrete programming languages is Turing equivalent. Automata are used as theoretical models for computing machines, and are used for proofs about computability.
