The number one choice for today's computational theory course, this highly anticipated revision retains the unmatched clarity and thorough coverage that make it a leading text for upper-level undergraduate and introductory graduate students. This edition continues author Michael Sipser's well-known, approachable style with timely revisions, additional exercises, and more memorable examples in key areas. A new first-of-its-kind theoretical treatment of deterministic context-free languages is ideal for a better understanding of parsing and LR grammars. This edition's refined presentation ensures a trusted accuracy and clarity that make the challenging study of computational theory accessible and intuitive to students while maintaining the subject's rigor and formalism. Readers gain a solid understanding of the fundamental mathematical properties of computer hardware, software, and applications with a blend of practical and philosophical coverage and mathematical treatments, including advanced theorems and proofs. "Introduction to the Theory of Computation, 3E, International Edition's" comprehensive coverage makes this an ideal ongoing reference tool for those studying theoretical computing.Read Less

This is a very complete book about computation mainly for graduate students. As I have used it for an undergraduate course, some logical steps weren't clear to me. There is a "proof idea" before every proof and it is very good because it explains you the ideas behind. The problem is that many proofs themselves are left just as summary, because many important details of proofs are missing. I had to look something on Papadimitriou's book. Some exercises are quite hard and there is the risk to lose too much time on an exercise trying to solve it. The lack of some paragraph about quantum computing is the last defect of this book.
