From the Preface:
Anil Maheshwari and Michiel Smid wrote:This is a free textbook for an undergraduate course on the Theory of Computation, which we have been teaching at Carleton University since 2002. Until the 2011/2012 academic year, this course was offered as a second-year course (COMP 2805) and was compulsory for all Computer Science students. Starting with the 2012/2013 academic year, the course has been downgraded to a third-year optional course (COMP 3803). 

We have been developing this book since we started teaching this course. Currently, we cover most of the material from Chapters 2–5 during a 12-week term with three hours of classes per week.




About The Author(s)


Anil Maheshwari is a Professor in the School of Computer Science at Carleton University. His main interest is in all sorts of algorithmic problems in computational geometry and graph theory. He is interested in sequential, parallel, distributed, multi-core, external memory, big and small data algorithms for problems which fit within the framework of design and analysis of algorithms.
