This text addresses some theoretical issues surrounding computer science. It provides an introduction to the theory of computation, and covers programming languages, finite state machines, grammars, Boolean circuits, computational complexity, feasible problems, and intractable problems.A simple circuit in G is a sequence of distinct vertices (v\, v2, . . ., vtf from V such that {vj, vj+i} eEfor 1 alt; i alt;k, {vfc, vi} eE, and k agt; 1. Intuitively, a circuit is just what you would naturally call a loop or cycle in the graph. The word aquot;simpleaquot; is used to anbsp;...
