Foundations of Computer Science: From Data Manipulation to Theory of Computation: From Data Manipulation to Theory of Computation / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Cengage Learning
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.
