TCOM focuses on the theoretical aspects of computing.
- From the CTY course catalog:
The theory of computation is the mathematical study of the power and limits of computing. In this class, we study idealized machines that serve as theoretical computers. Because these machines are mathematical objects, we can prove theorems about them, applying those theorems to understand the strengths and limitations of actual computers.
TCOM split off from CPS1 in 2001, and CPS1 became defunct.
