  1. If you’re working as a computer
    scientist,
  2. no matter whether it’s in computational
    biology,
  3. finance, logistics, or even the
    secret service,
  4. chances are
  5. that you’ll come across
  6. very tough problems that can only be
  7. solved by a computer. Or so you might
  8. think because here’s the bad news:
  9. There are literally thousands
  10. of problems out there
  11. for which you might think that
    it’s
  12. simple for a computer to solve them
  13. but it’s actually very hard,
  14. if not downright impossible.
  15. This course introduces you to theoretical
  16. computer science, the area of computer
    science
  17. that deals with very hard
    problems.
  18. And I think that even if you plan to
  19. become a very practical computer
    scientist,
  20. it’s vital that you know about those
    theoretical concepts
  21. Plus, we will also encounter some
  22. really fascinating and mind boggling
  23. results from theoretical computer
    science,
  24. such as deceptively simple
    problems that
  25. no computer will ever be able to solve.
  26. So I’m happy to invite you to take this
    journey
  27. into the science of challenging problems.
