Computer technological know-how seeks to supply a systematic foundation for the examine of tell a­ tion processing, the answer of difficulties through algorithms, and the layout and programming of pcs. The final 40 years have obvious expanding sophistication within the technological know-how, within the microelectronics which has made machines of brilliant complexity economically possible, within the advances in programming method which enable gigantic courses to be designed with expanding velocity and decreased blunders, and within the improvement of mathematical strategies to permit the rigorous specification of application, technique, and computing device. the current quantity is one in all a sequence, The AKM sequence in Theoretical desktop technology, designed to make key mathe­ matical advancements in computing device technological know-how easily available to lower than­ graduate and starting graduate scholars. particularly, this quantity takes readers with very little mathematical heritage past highschool algebra, and provides them a style of a few subject matters in theoretical computing device technological know-how whereas laying the mathematical origin for the later, extra specific, research of such themes as formal language conception, computability concept, programming language semantics, and the examine of software verification and correctness. bankruptcy 1 introduces the elemental techniques of set idea, with specified emphasis on features and kin, utilizing an easy set of rules to supply motivation. bankruptcy 2 provides the inspiration of inductive facts and provides the reader an exceptional snatch on probably the most very important notions of laptop technology: the recursive definition of services and information structures.

Example text

We see here a powerful role of theory: to enable us to use a change of representation to convert a problem into a simpler one, or into a problem that we already know how to solve. GRAPHS AND RELATIONS In analytic geometry we often represent a function of the form f: R ~ R by its graph as shown in Figure 7. ) as a subset of R x R. This suggests the following general definition: 14 Definition. Given any function f: A ~ B, the graph of f is the subset graph(f) = {(a, b)la E A, bE B, b = f(a)} ofAx B.

There is an obvious bijective map from X* to the disjoint union, sending (Xl' ... , xn) to «Xl' ... , x n), n). As an exercise in inductive definition, we turn to a third definition of X*, giving yet a third way of denoting a list of n elements of X. We formalize, for any set X, the formation of longer strings by adding elements X of X at the left-hand end. ) 4 Definition. For any set S, we simultaneously define X* and the length function t: X* ~ N inductively by Basis Step: X* contains a distinguished element, written A, which we call the empty string.

In order to prove a property P(n) for all n E N, it is sufficient to prove (i) a Basis Step: P(O) is true; and (ii) an Induction Step: If P(k) holds for all k :$; n, then P(n + 1) is true. It goes without saying that this principle can be used to prove results by induction with basis case m > 0 as well. Notice how this principle, which is sometimes called complete induction, differs from our earlier notion of inductive proof. Here the induction step allows the assumption of P(k) for all k < n in addition to the assumption P(n).
