Theory of computation (Turing machines, automata, computational complexity, algorithms, NP completeness, big-O) is ...
  • The crowning achievement of humankind
  • Awesome; the PCP theorem makes me weak in the knees
  • Pretty cool; I've even applied some of those things in practice
  • Interesting, but hard to understand
  • Something I've always wanted to learn more about, but never have the time
  • Something I don't think I'll ever really understand
  • Irrelevant for me; Never used it, never will
  • In theory the same as practice, but in practice it's not*
  • Something I barely survived in school and never want to think about again
  • Best left to someone other than me
  • A necessary evil in computer science
  • A tactic employed by CS departments to make their students miserable
  • A bunch of useless, self-important, academic jibberish
  • Too impenetrable and abstract to even make up my mind

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;

    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
