 ABOUT THE TITLE
An Introduction to Formal Languages and Automata, Sixth Edition, provides an accessible, student-friendly presentation of all the material essential to an introductory Theory of Computation course. Written to address the fundamentals of formal languages, automata, and computability, the text is designes to familiarize students with the foundations and principles of computer science and to strengthen the students ability to carry out formal and rigorous mathematical arguments. The author, Peter Linz, continues to offer a straightforward, uncomplicated treatment of formal languages and automata and avoids excessive mathematical detail allowing students to focus on and understand the key underlying principles.

New and Key Features of the Sixth Edition:
An accesible approach allows students to clearly understand key content while retaining the appropriate mathematical notations and theorems requrired for the course
New Chapter Synopses, found at the beginning of each chapter, recap important concepts found in the text
Every major idea is preceded by a motivating example, drawn from applications, that introduces the concept and illustrates its usefulness
New Exercises added throughout are more closely tied to examples in the text
An enchanced Instructor’s Manual includes more detailes solutions to all problems found in the text.

About the Author:

Peter Linz Professor Emeritus, University of California, Davis

Peter Linz is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Davis. Linz received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. Professor Linz’s research emphasizes the development of a theory of numerical analysis that can be used in the construction of reliable numerical methods used in the design of problem-solving environments for scientific computing. Linz has released the fourth edition of An Introduction to Formal Languages and Automata, as well as Exploring Numerical Methods: An Introduction to Scientific Computing.
