Aims & Scope of the Journal

Theoretical Computer Science is mathematical and abstract in spirit, but it derives its motivation from practical and everyday computation. Its aim is to understand the nature of computation and, as a consequence of this understanding, provide more efficient methodologies. All papers introducing or studying mathematical, logic and formal concepts and methods are welcome, provided that their motivation is clearly drawn from the field of computing. Any queries about submissions and peer review should be addressed to the TCS editorial office: published in Theoretical Computer Science are grouped in three sections according to their nature. The first section `Algorithms, automata, complexity and games’ is devoted to the study of algorithms and their complexity using analytical, combinatorial or probabilistic methods. It includes the whole field of abstract complexity (i.e. all the results about the hierarchies that can be defined using Turing machines), the whole field of automata and language theory (including automata on infinite words and infinitary languages), the whole field of geometrical (graphic) applications and the whole field of measurement of system performance using statistical methods. The second section,`Logic, semantics and theory of programming’, is devoted to formal methods to check properties of programs or implement formally described languages; it…
