Introduction to Theoretical Computer Science
This is the git repository for a book in preparation for an introductory undergraduate course on computer science. The book is posted (in both html and pdf formats) on the web page http://introtcs.org
I am working on improving this text during the summer of 2018. My main priorities are:
Add explanations, proof ideas, examples.
Emphasize the "non importance" of the choice of particular models (NAND vs circuits, NAND++/NAND<< vs Turing machines/ RAM machines).
Write two chapters: space bounded computation and proofs and programs.
