Overview

Foundations of Computer Science: From Data Manipulation to Theory of Computation successfully provides students with an overview of the many specializations within the field of computer science. Although many incoming freshman students are familiar with computers, they are often unaware of the broad field of computer science beyond the task of programming. Behrouz Forouzan has developed a five-part approach to introduce students to different aspects of the discipline without overwhelming them with technical detail. These topics include computer and data, computer hardware, computer software, data organization, and advanced topics. Throughout the book, Forouzan emphasizes the concept rather than the mathematical model, and difficult topics are supplemented with visual aids as needed to help students grasp concepts.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
In this introductory text, students will overview the many disciplines within computer science, with an emphasis on concepts rather than on mathematical models and technical details. Understanding is increased with some 300 figures, and with examples that demonstrate concepts and mathematical models. Learning features include key terms, summaries, review questions, and exercises. Material is organized in sections on the computer and data, computer hardware, software, data organization, and advanced topics such as data compression and security. The author is affiliated with De Anza College. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
