A Word From My Publisher

In The Language of Machines, Robert Floyd and Richard Beigel revolutionize the teaching of computability and languages. They propose nothing less than redefinition of the building blocks of automata theory: their unified model of computation clarifies the subject as never before. Floyd and Beigel's single model encompasses all the traditional types of computing machines and even "real world" electronic computers.

Using an approach that has been successfully class tested at Stanford, Yale, and Johns Hopkins, Floyd and Beigel offer valuable innovations:

Floyd an Beigel's bold reformulation of computability and formal language theory provides a firm foundation on which students can build a rich and enduring body of knowledge.
