  Computer science - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Computer science, or computing science, is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and their implementation and application in computer systems.
Computer science began to be established as a distinct academic discipline in the 1960s, with the creation of the first computer science departments and degree programs.
Early computer science was strongly influenced by the work of mathematicians such as Kurt Gödel and Alan Turing, and there continues to be a useful interchange of ideas between the two fields in areas such as mathematical logic, category theory, domain theory, and algebra.

Computer science is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation, and their implementation and application in computer systems.
In practice, computer science includes a variety of topics relating to computers, which range from the abstract analysis of algorithms, formal grammars, etc. to more concrete subjects like programming languages, software, and computer hardware.
As a scientific discipline, it is distinct from mathematics, programming, software engineering, informatics, and computer engineering, although there are significant overlaps and no clear demarcation.
