Formal Languages and Computability (csc360)

Fall 2016
Dr. Gur Saran Adhar

Catalogue Description
An introduction to theoretical computer science. Topics include regular expression and finite state concepts; basic automata theory; formal grammar and languages; computability; Turing machines; elementary recursive function theory.

Purpose of the course
This course provides necessary background for constructing compilers (Lexical Analyzer and Parser) for Computer Languages. Topics are logically divided into three parts. Part I: Chapters 1 and 2 provide the Mathematical Preliminaries (Ch. 1) and a formal mechanism for language specification (Ch. 2); Part II: Chapters 3 thru 5 discusses Context-Free Grammar, Normal Forms, Finite Automata, and Pushdown Automata; and Part V: Chapters 18-20 discuss Parsing.

At the end of this course you will have understanding of the nature of different computation models viz., Finite Automata (Ch. 5), Pushdown Automata (Ch. 7) and their relationship/limitations with respect to recognition of different classes of languages viz., Context Free Languages (Ch. 3), Regular Languages (Ch. 6).
