From the Book Description:
Critchlow and Eck wrote:Foundations of Computation is a textbook for a one semester introductory course in theoretical computer science. It includes topics from discrete mathematics, automata theory, formal language theory, and the theory of computation, along with practical applications to computer science. It has no prerequisites other than a general familiarity with computer programming. Version 2.3, Summer 2010, was a minor update from Version 2.2, which was published in Fall 2006. Version 2.3.1 is an even smaller update of Version 2.3.
