Welcome to CSE 322 (Autumn 2001)

Rajesh Rao (Instructor)


Deepak Verma (TA)

MWF 10:30-11:20 in MGH 231

In this course, we will explore basic concepts in the theory of computing. We will study a variety of abstract computing machines (finite automata, pushdown automata, and Turing machines) and investigate the different languages that they capture (regular, context-free, decidable, and Turing-recognizable languages). We will also briefly visit the dreaded world of unsolvable problems. The emphasis will be on developing a thorough understanding of abstract models of computation and on being able to formulate rigorous analytical arguments about them.
