CSCI 1010

Theory of Computation

Welcome to CSCI 1010!

This is a core undergraduate computer science course on the foundations of computing. The questions it aims to answer are: (1) What is computation? (2) What is computable? (3) What is computable given our limited resources?

We'll answer these questions and, in the process, explore important concepts such as Turing machines, languages, reductions, and NP-completeness. Welcome to the tree-mendous world of theoretical computer science, and we hope you'll join us in exploring it!
