About this Textbook

"This classroom-tested undergraduate textbook is unique in presenting logic and automata theory as a single subject...I highly recommend this book to you as the best route I know into the concepts underlying modern industrial formal verification." - Dr. Michael J.C. Gordon FRS, The University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory

 

"This is a valuable book in my opinion.  I learned a good deal from reading it, and encountered many attractive topic treatments and fresh insights, throughout.  I certainly plan to add it to my reference shelf and recommend it to my students and colleagues.  It covers automata in depth, providing good intuitions along the way, and culminating with applications that are used every day in the field.  In this respect, it is a departure from the conventional textbooks on complexity and computability, although these 'tradtional' aspects remain well represented.  The book is well organized for coordinated use in several courses, ranging from core udnergraduate to senior and graduate level topics." - Professor Steven D. Johnson, Indiana University

Reviews

From the reviews:

"One of the constant challenges faced by computer science faculty is how to tie in the theory of computing with applications. This text attempts to do just that … . Overall, this book is a good undergraduate theory text. … It includes exercises, with software tools to aid in visualization of key ideas. … The exercises are appropriate for an undergraduate-level class. … It is a good text … ." (M. D. Derk, Computing Reviews, December, 2006)

"The book under review shows, logic and automata theory can be combined to provide powerful tools for checking computer code … . There is no doubt that the book was written with great care and that it caters for a real need. … the book is written in a very lively style, which makes reading it quite pleasurable. … many nice applications of automata that are peppered throughout the book." (S. C. Coutinho, SIGACT News, Vol. 39 (3), 2008)
