CIS 361: Models of Computation

Prereqs: CIS 181;C or Better and MTH 182

General Education requirement: Natural Science Technology

Models of sequential, parallel, and distributed computations. The Chomsky hierarchy of formal languages and their accepting machines are studied in detail. The relationship of these languages and machines to computer programs is presented. Influence of a Turing machine and related formalisms on modern computing are studied. Decidability of decision problems is explained. Several models of parallel and distributed computations are introduced and compared.
