This book gives a survey of crucially important mathematical models for languages and computation. Most of these models were introduced and studied within the framework of formal language theory. In essence, this theory represents a mathematically systematized body of knowledge concerning languages and their models, which allow us to formalize and investigate computation strictly scientifically. The book defines languages as sets of finite sequences consisting of symbols. As a result, this general definition encompasses almost all languages, including natural as well as artificial languages, such as programming languages. The strictly mathematical approach to languages necessitates an introduction of mathematical models that define them. The first section of the conclusion summarizes all the material covered in the text. The second section points out modern investigation trends, including open-problem areas, and makes many bibliographical comments.
