## How to Think Like a Computer Scientist

## Allen Downey

The goal of this book is to teach you to think like a computer scientist. This way of thinking combines some of the best features of mathematics, engineering, and natural science. Like mathematicians, computer scientists use formal languages to denote ideas (speciﬁcally computations). Like

engineers, they design things, assembling components into systems and evaluating tradeoffs among

alternatives. Like scientists, they observe the behavior of complex systems, form hypotheses, and

test predictions
