## Theoretical Computer Science

**Theoretical computer science** is a discipline dealing with systematic ways to process information, especially using computers. Key original concepts of theoretical computer science include:

- development of methods for problem-solving (
**theory of algorithms**), - theoretical models to construct computers, i.e. machines able to apply algorithms (
**automata theory**), - a foundation of
**computability theory**itself, i.e. exploring which problems are tractable by applying automata performing algorithms.

### Historical Notes

Originally, computer science was a special field in many different scientific disciplines (e.g. logic, mathematics, electrotechnology), in the late 50s of the 20th century, however, it developed as a separate field of research.
