This course is intended to provide basic knowledges in Computer Science that would be useful for students to pursue their own research subjects in Mathematical Sciences and Information Science and Engineering.
The course is divided into three parts, each of which discusses several basic concepts in Computer Science ranging from theory of computation to advanced computer architecture.
