**The Correctness-by-Construction Approach to Programming**
The focus of this book is on bridging the gap between two extreme methods for developing software. On the one hand, there are texts and approaches that are so formal that they scare off all but the most dedicated theoretical computer scientists. On the other, there are some who believe that any measure of formality is a waste of time,... | | **An Introduction to Formal Languages and Automata**This text covers all the material essential to an introductory theory of computation course for undergraduate students. The text has a solid mathematical base, and provides precise mathematical statements of theorems and definitions, giving an intuitive motivation for constructions and proofs. Proofs and arguments are clearly stated, without... | | **Quantum Computing**
The twentieth century witnessed the birth of revolutionary ideas in the phys-
ical sciences. These ideas began to shake the traditional view of the universe
dating back to the days of Newton, even to the days of Galileo. Albert Ein-
stein is usually identified as the creator of the relativity theory, a theory that
