بهترین و بهترین و بهترین کتاب یادگیری نظریهی زبان وماشینه. مثالها و تمرینهاش فوقالعادن و مطالب رو کاملا عمقی توضیح میده. به نظرم بهترین رفرنس ممکن برای شروع این فیلده. ...more

کتاب (خود کتاب، نه ترجمه) بسیار روان برای یادگیری نظریه زیان ها و ماشین ها با تمرینات مناسب.
البته کتاب در مبحث گرامرها و همچنین پیچدگی جامع نیست و باید در کنار کتاب های دیگر مطالعه شود. ولی برای کسانی که برای اولین بار میخواهند نظریه زبان ها را یاد بگیرند همین کتاب را توصیه می کنم

دربارهی نظریه زبانها و ماشینهاست، و با خوندنش میفهمید کامپایلر چطور متوجه خطای سینتکسی میشه. :دی
متن خیلی روون و خوب، موضوع جذاب، ترتیب مناسب مباحث و همه چیز.

کتاب دلنشین و کاملیه.

This book does a decent job in explaining Formal Languages and Automata. However, I didn't like the super formal approach for the more difficult subjects such as the Turing machine and pumping lemma. I had to use external sources to figure those two subjects out.
Not terrible but definitely not an easy book on the subject, the author could have been a bit more descriptive and given more complex examples because typically he gives very easy examples and then none of the problems are simple and can be pretty difficult.

This course could be read by some better references.
I teach it by a book which belongs to "Ker I Ko, D. Zoo" Problem solving in Automata, Language and Complexity Theory.

The book is not bad, rich of exercises. The only problem is that it solves basic and easy examples only. Which makes harder for the reader to be able to apply the concept on hard exercises.
