6.045 Automata, Computability, and Complexity


Class Info

Provides an introduction to some of the central ideas of theoretical computer science, including circuits, finite automata, Turing machines and computability, efficient algorithms and reducibility, the P versus NP problem, NP-completeness, the power of randomness, cryptography, computational learning theory, and quantum computing. Examines the classes of problems that can and cannot be solved in various computational models.

This class has 6.042 as a prerequisite.

6.045 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by R. R. Williams.

Lecture occurs 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-270.
